Five Awesome Science Courses You Can Take Online Completely Free | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
“ Science often gets a bad rap for being inaccessible. But it’s actually never been easier to satisfy your curiosity on subjects ranging from computer technology, biology, astrophysics, climate science, and just about anything in between. In fact, it’s just a few clicks away. These online courses from edX allow you to learn an array of topics under the instruction of experts from the field. Best of all, it can be done online and it’s free. Yep, free. Not bad, right?”

10 Things You Can Do On Google Classroom - Simplek12 | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
“ Teachers love Google. So you likely shouldn’t be surprised that everyone has been talking about Google Classroom on Twitter recently. I watch social media closely and it’s my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing. Google Classroom, described on the Google website as “designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students.” You receive access by signing in with your school Google account. Google Classroom is a one-stop Google shop for teachers, including lists of helpful products, training, and resources for students and teachers. In fact, some of the world’s best Google training for teachers comes from SimpleK12, and you can check out upcoming Google Classroom webinars here, many free.”

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Expeditions Will Soon Be Available to iPad Users

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Expeditions Will Soon Be Available to iPad Users | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
“ Last week Google released another round of updates to their Expeditions program. Expeditions is the virtual reality program that lets students experience immersive views of more than 200 places including the International Space Station, coral reefs, the Taj Mahal, and the White House. Currently, to experience Expeditions you must have a Google Cardboard viewer and a supported Android device. According to last week's Google for Education blog post, soon you will be able to experience Expeditions on iPads. On your iPad you will be able to use full screen mode to view the Expeditions virtual field trips.”

Google has added to Expeditions. Cardboard viewers are not very expensive and there are instructions on line for making your own. 
Ricard Garcia's curator insight, August 25, 2:32 AM
That may be an important breakthrough, as it would be to integrate all iOS devices, not only iPads.

More apps to consider. It seems that there are a multitude of apps to wade through and choosing the right apps to use can be a minefield of time wasted and relief when you find one that works the way you want it to. Don't give and don't reinvent the wheel. Read what other people have done or used before you try and you may just save yourself some time and effort. As I heard once from a prior colleague "Work smarter not harder"

Periodic table of iPad apps vol 2 - @ICTEvangelist -  Mark Anderson

Periodic table of iPad apps vol 2 - @ICTEvangelist -  Mark Anderson | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
“ First things first. It’s never just about the apps. End of. That said being guided around tried and tested apps from the classroom can be really helpful. With that in mind, back in 2014 I created my first periodic table of iPad apps. Little did I realise how popular it would be with more than 7 million downloads in those two years. As with most things to do with technology, times move on and apps change, new technologies bring new ways to use technology to enhance learning. What has been interesting in the process of creating the periodic table has been looking at the apps which still work really well at doing what they do best. Interestingly, many of the apps on this updated table were on the original table too but there are plenty of new ones to look at too. Overwhelmingly, the majority of apps shown are free too. ”

The Teacher's Guide: Using Shared iPads on iOS 9.3 and later - Daily Genius

The Teacher's Guide: Using Shared iPads on iOS 9.3 and later - Daily Genius | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
“ When Apple initially developed and released iPads in 2010, the intent of the device was to make an individual’s life easier. To this point, the device has succeeded in that aspect. However, in the educational world, schools may not be able to afford a fully individualized experience for their students with iPads. This issue has resulted in schools purchasing iPad carts for teachers and students sharing the iPads in those carts, hence the term “Shared iPads”. While great in cost savings, the shared cart often created multiple issues for teachers and students. With the release of iOS 9.3 comes the Shared iPad environment. An environment that will help teachers and students in an iPad cart classroom create a personalized learning experience.”

Google Cast for Education lets students show their work to the class

Google Cast for Education lets students show their work to the class | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it
The Google Cast protocol lets you stream content from a smartphone, tablet, or computer to a TV. Now Google has launched a special version of Cast designed for use in classrooms.It's called Google Cast for Education, and it's a Chrome web app that lets students and teachers beam content to a central display to share their work with the whole class.Google Cast for Education is one of several new tools for educators that Google is announcing.Here's how it works: a teacher connects their computer to a projector or other display and fires up the Cast for Education app. Then students in the classroom can beam content to that display from their computers... but since everything goes through the teacher's computer, there's no need to buy any new hardware (like a Chromecast or Android TV device).The app is free... but it's designed for use with Google Apps for Education, so you won't be able to do much with it unless you've got an Education account. Google is launching a beta version of Cast for Education, and says it'll work with an upcoming version of the Google Cast extension for Chrome OS or Chrome for PC (but casting from Android and iOS is not currently supported).Other new education-oriented tools from Google include a new Expeditions app for exploring places around the world without leaving your classroom, support for Quizzes in Google Forms, and a collection of new Chrome apps.

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles | EdTechReview™

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles | EdTechReview™ | E-learning Kings | Scoop.it

When technology boomed inside the territories of the global hemisphere, all aspects of human life were vastly affected. Especially, the educational sector brought in huge wonders. Students were shoved off the heavy burden of following the same boring conventional educational methods. “Classroom flipping” was a hit, resulting in wide smiles on the murky faces of students and revival of new spirit of teaching in teachers.To begin with, classroom flipping requires that you reach to every student effectively. Listen to their queries, do on-the-spot mentoring and get them to pursue the rest of the class activities with enthusiasm. This process is successful only when instructions are moved from group learning space to individual learning space. Now what the hurdle here could be:Click headline to read more--
