A Beautiful Visual Explaining The Internet of Things ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Beautiful Visual Explaining The Internet of Things ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Internet of Things (IoT) is a relatively new concept that is making such a buzz online. I have come across it in several instances but never really inquired deeply about its meaning. However, today I read a really interesting article by Jacob Morgan entitled " A Simple Explanation of 'The Internet of Things'. In this article, Jacob defined IoT as "the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cell phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.  This also applies to components of machines, for example a jet engine of an airplane or the drill of an oil rig."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 27, 4:37 PM

Check out this new search engine called Kiddle. It is a visual search engine designed for children. What makes it different?

1. Most search results provide a large thumbnail. This image will help children differentiate some results.

2. The font size. Kiddle uses a large size of Ariel, a font that helps with readability.

3. Sites are filtered and are family friendly.

4. Kiddle is privacy oriented. No data is collected and logs are deleted after 24 hours.

If you work with young students, or have young children at home this search engine is worth checking out.

New Poster: Explaining SAMR Model Through Google Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

New Poster: Explaining SAMR Model Through Google Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Here is another great find today from Google Apps Action. Davis created this excellent visual illustrating how to integrated SAMR model using Google Apps. She made use of two main apps: Google Docs and Google Hangout, and for each of the SAMR levels (substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition) she provided an example of a task together with the app to do it. To me, the strength of this work lies in the task samples mentioned here. Teachers can repurpose them and try them with their own students in class. I also find the simple explanation of each of the SAMR levels quite helpful and  would help those new to SAMR better understand the philosophy underlying this conceptual framework.
