I love the table that gives you categories and their corresponding resources. This would be a great site to bring up when you visit a teacher's planning meeting to help teachers get started - or improve - their flipped classroom models. At the end of the table is a list of video tutorials that will help newbies get started with the flipped model. For some, this is old news but if you're bringing teachers along and you have some that are not yet comfortable with this instructional method, this is a great starting point!

14 ways to create great classroom video with Screencastify

14 ways to create great classroom video with Screencastify | Edtech | Scoop.it

"One of my favorite classroom video creation tools is Screencastify. It’s a Chrome extension … a little program installed into the Google Chrome web browser in the top right corner.

I love it because you can:

* record video with your webcam OR record what’s happening on your screen. 


* record a specific web browser tab, the entire web browser or your computer’s desktop. 


* choose between cameras and microphones if you have more than one plugged in. 


* include the system audio (sounds the computer makes) or turn them off. 


* upload directly to Google Drive or YouTube"

Why Pedagogy First, Tech Second Stance is Key to the Future

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, August 5, 11:35 AM
This is an excellent article to get you thinking about how technology is being integrated in your school. Whether your district is 1:1 or BYOT or some hybrid of the two, the overarching question is: what is the pedagogical purpose of the technology? How does it improve student outcomes? How do we leverage the technology for critical thinking, higher order thinking, and higher levels of achievement and/or learning? My favorite line in the article is this one: "As educators we need to place a great deal of emphasis on creating artifacts to demonstrate conceptual mastery in one-on-one and BYOD environments." What are YOU using as your artifact(s)? How do you SHOW that technology has been integrated with a "pedagogy first" process?

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms | Edtech | Scoop.it
As you probably know, Google Drive is far more than a place to store files online. It also includes a suite of versatile creation tools, many of which perform the same functions as the ones we use in other spaces. These include Google Docs, a word processing program that behaves similarly to Microsoft Word, Google Slides, a presentation program similar to PowerPoint, and Google Forms, a survey-creation tool similar to Survey Monkey. Although Drive also includes other tools, these three are particularly useful for creating rigorous, academically robust projects. If your school uses Google Classroom or at least gives students access to Google Drive, your students are probably already using these tools to write papers or create slideshow presentations, but there are other projects they could be doing that you may not have thought of.

Below I have listed 16 great ideas for projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms. (If you and your students want to learn more about how to use these apps, check out my Google Drive Basics course; more info at the end of this post!)

Some of these tools would be awesome to use with students for social emotional learning. The choose your own adventure idea would be great to teach about consequences. Creating the story would lead to rich discussions. The blogging feature might be nice for journaling.  What if students could tell their story in the format of a magazine? These tools allow for unlimited options for self-expression and socio-emotional learning.

Teachers need to receive training on models of change. Teachers should be trained in identifying their own professional development needs based on their classroom performance, areas that they aren’t performing up to par based on their own personal self-assessments as well as feedback from students, colleagues, and supervisors followed by intentional processes to help make positive changes in their work environments.

Common Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology

Common Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology | Edtech | Scoop.it
All of the above misconceptions promote a sense of fear among educators and impede the adaption of educational technology. But we can’t turn a blind eye to the fact that technology is going to pervade into every aspects of education and changes, both subtle and disruptive, are inevitable. Teachers, technologists and other stakeholders such as government should work together and make the best use of technology to improve teaching and learning and prepare our children for the future.

When it comes time for a bit of library refreshing, in the form of posters and bulletin boards, there are so many wonderful shared options. In the spirit of fall refreshing, I thought I’d refresh on of my posts, Fall decorating: a round-up of smart (and free) posters, from a few years back.


As I mentioned back then, every year, as we move back into our libraries and classrooms, we search for meaningful, inspiring, attractive visuals to fill our display cases, to grace our bulletin boards, to embed on our websites and most importantly, to engage and inspire those who visit."

This article is well worth your time to read as it focuses on trends of which we need to be aware as well as some of the challenges and how we're addressing them. I love seeing makerspaces, redesigned learning spaces, and coding as a literacy mentioned as important to educators and feel strongly that this is at least one area where librarians have really taken the lead. I think there is a lot of room for library leadership in the challenges of authentic learning experiences, re-thinking the roles of teachers, and advancing digital equity, too. How do you think YOU will address these challenges with YOUR library program?

With effective monitoring, mobile devices can be integrated into courses and classroom time
Yeison Ossa Trejos's curator insight, November 2, 12:45 PM
From my point of view, personal devices such cell phones, tablets, ipads, among others, can be a huge risk if we allow students to use them in the classroom. However, it is also true that we as teachers should try to find useful ways to incorporate these potential resources into our lessons if we want to increase learner involvement and motivation while at the same time improving time management, teacher-student interaction, meaningful learning and real-time provision of feedback. 

All these educational factors can be simultaneously addressed if teachers take some time to do a little research on the web to find out the countless activities that digital devices allow them to perform along with your students both in and outside the classroom. 
Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, December 4, 6:07 PM
One of the most common expressions that I use to listen to nowadays is "put your cellphone away". Many teacher deal in their daily basis with students distracted by their phones and most of time they take desperate actions towards this situations which leads to a rough environment and affects the atmosphere of the classroom. In fact, one need we have in this current days is that of creating students perception towards the use of this devices which is not  a short way to walk but neither impossible. Providing the conditions and raising awareness about other possible uses into the classroom as well as raising curiosity to what is happening in the classroom will increase the possibilities of obtaining better behaviors in terms of technology. Our task then is to start thinking of strategies to implement since the very basis of the students academic life.
