Yes, a powerful tool that is still flying under the radar. It is not "just" podcast any more, not by a long shot.

Book Creator and the SAMR model - Book Creator app | Blog

Book Creator and the SAMR model - Book Creator app | Blog | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it
For the purpose of offering a reliable cadre of apps that teachers can plan around instructionally, Waukesha One offers all students and staff a set of apps called the Core Apps.

In selecting these apps, the team looked for apps that integrate well with Google Apps for Education, are flexible and not content/subject specific, promote thinking and doing aimed at the highest levels of Bloom’s, are easy to use, and can output easily for publication to the world.

Book Creator fit all of those descriptors, was stable and reliable, and set the stage for teachers and students to do many different things with it once they became comfortable with the tool.

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios

EdTechTeam: The How (and Why) It's Time to Create Digital Portfolios | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it
Digital Student Portfolios are becoming more important now than ever! Students are creating and remixing information like never before – and where is all that amazing work going? At my old school it was wiped off the devices at the end of the year – a heart-wrenching idea that I was personally against. This is why we need to publish student work in one place and let it serve as a home of student reflection, and a become a destination to unleash student pride and curiosity.

There are many reasons to begin the journey to digital portfolios – here are just a few.

Using Twitter for Learning

Using Twitter for Learning | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it

"In the UK and other countries there are justified fears about negative effects of various social media with students under the age of 18.  On top of the distraction it provides there are more dangerous issues such as cyberbullying, privacy issues and the potential for abuse.  However, there are some simple rules that can be followed to make Twitter a useful addition to a school’s and teacher’s toolset."

Time to get serious about collaboration tools - WhaTech

Time to get serious about collaboration tools - WhaTech | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it
Are you rather sceptical about the benefits of all these new fangled business collaboration tools, such as video conferencing, document sharing and in-house, business-oriented social media platforms? Perhaps you need to revise your opinions. A study, produced by Forbes Magazine and Cisco (admittedly a major provider of collaboration technologies) strongly suggests those organisation that have really embraced these technologies are reaping significant benefits - and not just internal efficiency gains.

How Google Apps For Education Can Be Used In Your Classroom - TeachThought

How Google Apps For Education Can Be Used In Your Classroom - TeachThought | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it
Like Apple and Microsoft, Google also wants a place in your classroom.

Google Apps for Education is a free suite of cloud-based tools created by Google to use in your classroom. You probably knew that part, and likely have a vague awareness of what’s available (Google Drive, Google Form, etc.) But Sylvia Duckworth has gone a step further, giving you an extended metaphor (a train), a graphic (with color), and a brief description of each “stop” of the Google Apps for Education train.
