This game has analytics so it might be helpful for a formative assessment.  Also the reading required can be helpful in measuring content and comprehension skills.  Worth a look!

Do Your Students Know How To Search?

Do Your Students Know How To Search? | Ed & Tech | Scoop.it
There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 17, 2013 1:00 PM

Only 15% of students are considered power users who can transfer their tech skills from place to place. The divide is not on the horizon. It is with us.

rwestby's curator insight, October 20, 2013 9:26 PM

Searching is not just for kids - Internet search skills are something needed even for adults.

Eileen Forsyth's curator insight, January 17, 2014 12:22 PM

Excellent, truly current information about teaching students to search and curate well. Use this for independent study!

Great comparison. Liked finding out more info on Schoology.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, June 28, 2013 7:21 PM

I have always been a big supporter for Schoology as a LMS.

Marita Diffenbaugh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 3:55 PM

I like the feature of being able to grade the discussions. I love Edmodo, however, Schoology looks like a great solution for secondary classes and their workflow.

iPad Literacy 101

iPad Literacy 101 | Ed & Tech | Scoop.it

Preview and download the course iPad Literacy 101 on iTunes U.

 

"The design of this course is to introduce teachers to using the iPad most efficiently. This course looks at iPad basic operations as well as advanced configurations and use as a teaching tool.  This course also outlines some key applications for use in the classroom. This course is geared toward 8-12 teachers and technology coordinators, but is applicable with some modifications for the junior-high grades. Many of the methods shown here are also usable by parents and students.  We will also look at some of the basic ways your iPad can be used as a teaching tool, consumption, creation and curation device. The iPad 101 course is designed by a teacher for teachers - to make them more efficient users of the device."

This iTunes U course is one of the best designed for teachers to get the most out of using an iPad in the classroom. There are some ideas in there I had not thought of, and it contains very useful guides. Might be a good thing to add to your list of holiday to-dos!

Use Safari’s Reading List to Send & Share Links Between Macs & iOS Devices

Use Safari’s Reading List to Send & Share Links Between Macs & iOS Devices | Ed & Tech | Scoop.it

"Reading List is a great feature of Safari that syncs saved web pages between Safari on all of your Macs and iOS devices. This lets you save web pages to read later and works a lot like Pocket and Instapaper, except that it doesn’t require any additional downloads, toolbars, plugins, or third party apps in order to use, because it’s all built right into Safari in OS X and iOS."
