So it’s your first month of teaching…ever. You’ve done alright so far. Haven’t been fired or attacked (yet) and are slowly settling into a routine.But wait, your ‘new teaching clothes’ are quickly becoming repetitive and you need new clothes. What do you buy?

You ‘think outside the box’ and want to come up with new ways to teach. Should you do that right now or try to learn from your peers first?

You need to make a bulletin board. Where do you turn? A dedicated teacher store or the local arts supplies store?

6 Video Games To Use In Your Classroom Tomorrow | Edudemic

6 Video Games To Use In Your Classroom Tomorrow | Edudemic | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

Realistically, a “with it” teacher can teach almost anything using almost anything. I’ve been taught trigonometry using a paper clip, and expository structure using paint. Tech is great, but nowhere close to necessary. But if the underlying learning process is well-thought out, tech can provide powerful common ground for teachers and learners.

 

So then, video games.

 

Video games do not represent a “rising medium,” but rather one that’s established, potent, and ready for application in any content area at any grade level. While their application may not be as immediately apparent as the Declaration of Independence, an essay by Wendell Berry, or Google Earth, they truly are a goldmine of edu-content.

The 200 Best Special Education Apps | Edudemic | Education and Technology Hand in Hand | Scoop.it

If you’re a special education teacher or are simply looking for an innovative way to reach a student… this is for you. Many apps out there are useful in the classroom but they’re not always easy to find in the clogged-up app store.

Ever tried searching for ‘education’ in the iTunes store? You won’t get a simple list of the top resources. Heck, that’s why places like ClassroomWindow have started up to help teachers sort the great stuff from the garbage.

Regardless, a Scribd document by Eric Sailers details hundreds of helpful apps that are perfect for special education teachers and more.
