A Handy Guide to Everything Teachers Need to Know about Edmodo

A Handy Guide to Everything Teachers Need to Know about Edmodo | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Edmodo is one of the promising web technologies that is making a strong foothold in the field of education. It has been embraced by several school districts and  is being widely used to host online classes and connect students with their teachers. I personally see edmodo as a very robust alternative to the traditional Moodle.

I love this site and used it faithfully until my school district shoved their LMS down my throat.  If you have the option and the opportunity, I highly recommend.

Presentation Apps: A New Take on an Old Task - Lindsey Fuller | Reading Today Online | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"For my recent Engage post, I asked my students to review apps we had used to create presentations in our classroom. The apps included a variety of tools for making traditional slide show displays. But the beauty of the devices we are using in our classroom is that we can go so much further, and break past those conventional boundaries.

With that in mind, I would like to share some of the apps my students utilized in creating presentations that were of the less traditional variety. "

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills - iPads in Education Ning

7 ways to teach digital literacy skills - iPads in Education Ning | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Fostering digital literacy skills is one of the most difficult tasks for educators. Evaluating and analyzing online resources for accuracy is something that many adults struggle with – we’ve all been bamboozled before, haven’t we? But digital literacy is more than just determining if something is true or false – it’s intelligently and responsibly navigating online, it’s putting countless pieces together to form a puzzle, it’s determining what’s important and evaluating bias, etc – the list goes on. So, as an educator, how do we reinforce these crucial skills in our classrooms?"

The 5 Important Elements of The 21st Century Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Technology is radically transforming the way education is delivered and part of this transformation is taking place right inside our classrooms. From the ancient  one-room school to the 20th century classroom where we have been taught, the classroom, as a pedagogical concept, has never witnessed such a transformational  revolution as is the case now with the uptake of digital technology.And guess what this is only the beginning.

5 less traditional ways to create and share online | Scoop.it Blog

5 less traditional ways to create and share online | Scoop.it Blog | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Our systems of communication have evolved and matured, from those oral traditions to the earliest cuneiform writings and all the way up through books and newspapers, to radio and television. With the advent of the modern age and Al Gore’s gift of the Internet, we’re now able to share our knowledge, ideas, and lots and lots of cute pictures of cats, around the world in less time than it has taken me to write this sentence.

 

Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

What do you feel are the key digital literacy skills that 21st century learners need? | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Digital literacy has become one of the major issues facing educators in this early part of the 21st century. The need to develop students and teachers digital literacies has become increasingly accepted as fact and yet most teachers' and students' understanding of what exactly constitutes a digital literacy still seems to remain quite vague. Even more vague seems to be teachers' understanding of how precisely we go about developing those literacies.
