Making the best use of #Evernote and #GoogleDrive

Michaela Vila's curator insight, February 13, 8:42 AM

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL. I use an iPad and Evernote every day for school, but I never thought of it being a tool for as a future teacher. Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.

When To Put The Tech Away In Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom

When To Put The Tech Away In Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom | Education Technology | Scoop.it

We’d had enough technology, and now it was time to re-engage as a class. Clearly, the iMacs had become a deterrent to learning rather than a catalyst, so it was time to re-group. Would I recommend the above strategy to middle or high school students?

Really interesting article about ensuring the learning is at the forefront, not the technology. When should we get the tech out of the way?

Great article.  Finding the right balance is the key.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 19, 2013 12:02 PM

With Halloween right around the corner, the Salem Witch trials loom large in the collective American psyche.  While many emphasize the supernatural and the scandalous, this Maps 101 podcast (based on the article written by Julie Dixon and yours truly) gives the geographic and historic context to understand the tragedy of the 1692 witch trials.

Justin McCullough's curator insight, October 21, 2013 10:37 AM

The outbreak of the Salem Witch Trials really are really something that produces many questions. Perhaps the most obvious question is why did these trials happen all of a sudden? A community largely based off of agriculture produces an atmosphere of superstition. This can be seen in the events that led up to the Salem witch trials. With the land barely producing enough to sustain the town, people look for a scapegoat to blame. Neighbors turned on neighbors in order to obtain more land claiming that each other were witches. It is interesting to see that in a time of crisis one can a helping hand is not always the popular choice; as seen in the Salem Witch Trials the opposite extreme is taken place.
