Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, January 14, 10:51 PM

Schools use online translation apps to communicate with non-English speaking students and parents. These apps are far from perfect, and should not suppressed the need for human interpreters, but they really help in a pinch. And the good news is that they’re getting quicker, better, and more readily available.

Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View

Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

In my life prior to becoming a full-time geeky girl, I was a sixth grade teacher. Throughout those 17 years, my favorite subject to teach was social studies. Within this content area, I loved, loved to share the knowledge (and excitement) I have about the ancient Egyptians. I was—and still am—particularly fascinated with the mummification process and even more so, the Pyramids of Giza.

 

That said, imagine my delight when I opened my browser to “Google” something, and I got a load of the latest tech gem my favorite search engine has to offer.
