Have you wanted to connect your class to a class in another part of the country. Skype is making that a bit easier with their new policy that will allow educators their Group Video Calling Plan at no cost. This plan allows you to connect with up to 10 parties at no cost. 

If you have not looked at Skype in the Classroom check out this link: https://education.skype.com/. They continue to add great programs that you may access and this new plan is the icing on the cake.

Kalinago English: 10 Speaking English Activities using TED.com

Kalinago English: 10 Speaking English Activities using TED.com | Education Equity | Scoop.it

"

Many English Language teachers, when deciding to work with a video clip in their classrooms, make a false assumption that for an activity to be considered as really teaching, then prior to showing it, they'd better sit down for a few hours, prepare an extensive worksheet filled with vocabulary and grammar questions and what-not...in order to turn it into a good pedagogical exercise, you know to ensure it's really not just glorified babysitting.  ;-)

Personally, I don't agree and I really don't think that extensive worksheets provide a particularly authentic experience - such a thing mainly just erodes the power of the message within the video, takes away the, inherent pleasure in learning from TED speakers. [...]"

48 iPad Apps for Teaching and Learning Geography / Earth Science

48 iPad Apps for Teaching and Learning Geography / Earth Science | Education Equity | Scoop.it

"After a year or two of tinkering and experimenting with apps for teaching / learing Geography, I have (finally) compiled this list of what I deem to be the most useful iPad apps for teaching Geography. I have not rated any of them, or offered any kind of review. I have merely inserted a screenshot or two and a link to the App Store. The discerning down-loader is urged to consult the ratings and reviews for each of these before buying and downloading them. I like them, and I am sure that you and your students will too."

Nearly one in five public high school graduates in the class of 2012 passed an Advanced Placement exam, reflecting a steady increase in performance over the past decade, new data released today by the College Board show.

Last year, 19.5 percent of graduates scored a 3 or higher, which is considered a passing grade on a scale of 1 to 5. That is up from 18.1 percent who passed in 2011 and 11.6 percent among the class of 2002.

Are you wondering how other school districts (and colleges) are using iPads? This post provides short descriptions as well as links to a wide variety of ways iPads are being used across the world.

Below are four areas found in this post:
