Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Technology, when used correctly, offers a lot of opportunity on a grand-scale.

This is a well organised a very interesting book for the modern language teacher. Just look at the table in the introduction to each chapter and you will find a wealth of ideas for language teaching.

There is that no suggestion is made to the potential of digital games to boost humanities fields. Oh, sorry, I forgot. No one cares about humanities anymore. Do excuse me.

"...well-run organizations employ technology as a way to improve their performance...Far too often, school leaders fail to consider how technology might dramatically improve teaching and learning, and schools frequently acquire digital devices without discrete learning goals and ultimately use these devices in ways that fail to adequately serve students, schools, or taxpayers."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 18, 2013 8:06 PM

Newsela is a free website that provides news for students. It is geared to students in grades 4 - 12 and will help students build close reading and critical thinking skills in non-fiction reading comprehension. 
Articles are written at multiple levels of compexity. It appears that the levels begin around 690 and go up to just over 1200.

Each article has a quiz (aligned to Common Core) allowing you to quickly see if your students are on track.

And last there are great teacher tools. You may assign articles, review student quizzes and track Common Core mastery.

Jackie Keith's curator insight, June 19, 2013 8:31 AM

Students can use it without registering by clicking "No Thanks" and can select different Lexile versions of the same article.

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | EdTech | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

Social indeed. I'm not sure that's necessarily ground breaking, but a good discussion of some potential shifts.
