The Innovative Educator: 12 Most Useful Ways Kids Can Learn With Cell Phones | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

We live in a world that is increasingly mobile. In order for adults to connect with our kids and students, we need to mobilize. Kids love their phones, they are highly motivated to use them (constantly), and they always have them right there with them (if they’re allowed). What a strong basis for an educational tool: empower students to use tools they already own as a means for better education!

How can we keep students focused on schoolwork with all the electronic temptations surrounding them?

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 10 Sites for Educational Apps | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

The wave of the future is here especially for education. Terms like 21st Century Computing, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), and Cloud Computing, are mainstream. The introduction of mobile devices, iPods, netbooks, and more specifically the iPad has brought technology to more students then ever before. A 1 to 1 environment(1 student per 1 technology device) is not only a possibility but a reality in more school districts then people realize. W/ all that being said I have decided to create a list of my 10 favorite sites for finding educational apps.

How Collaborative Learning Is Shaping The Future of Education | Edudemic

How Collaborative Learning Is Shaping The Future of Education | Edudemic | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

What will have the greatest impact on American higher education in the next ten years? Think of two long-standing exponential trends: the explosive rise in processing power and perhaps the even faster rise in information-sharing – a trend most pronounced in social networks. With strong demand for innovation in the university environment, a rise in collaborative, digitally-integrated educational technologies is likely to make education more affordable, more efficient and more relevant to our future workforce.

12 Tech Tools That Will Transform The Way You Teach! | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher

In a Simple K12 blog post titled “17 Signs Your Classroom is Behind the Times” they provide a list of things that characterize a classroom that has fallen behind. Number 16 lists a variety of technology tools that every educator should know about.

As I read the list, I realized that although many teachers are interested in and excited about technology integration, they are too busy to explore all the new technology tools available online.

This blog post is dedicated to all of the overworked teachers who just don’t have the time to seek out this information. I have provided brief explanations, links to and pictures of the tools mentioned by Simple K12 (and a couple of my favorites). I hope this makes it more manageable for teachers to pick and choose which tools they want to use.

How Digital Education Could Learn From Video Games | Edudemic

How Digital Education Could Learn From Video Games | Edudemic | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

Perhaps more than any other media form, video games suffer from connotation.

While sourced directly from a stunning convergence of art and technology, the public perception of video games drips with the juvenile, evoking images of–depending on your age–Pac-Man, Mario, or the Grand Theft Auto series. Their time in the public spotlight is usually brief, and tangled with inevitably tilted discussions on children, violence, impression, and even Constitutional rights.

More and more teachers have their students reflect on their own learning experience.
