Some more information about Google Drive Add-ons including some I haven't used yet such as the Track Changes app.

I use "Revision History" all the time when reviewing student work and this has been particularly useful when contacting parents.

This app helps track specific changes in more detail - great for group work!  Now you can really see who has done all the work!

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Dear “Nervous To Try Something New With EdTech”: You know when you spoke with me the other day and told me that that introducing more tech into my class was fine for me because I was ‘into it’ and ‘understood’ it? That you were not going to try a new way of doing things (edtech-wise) …

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 23, 1:41 AM

I've done edtech training for nervous teachers since the days of the Apple ll and the  Commodore 64. Some things never change.  I think it's not so much the fear of tech as it is the fear of losing control of a class when the tech fails (as it always will).  


The cure? Perhaps being flexible enough to have multiple fall back positions when the tech crashes and accepting the role of teacher as learner as you learn the ropes along with your students.

Great article - supports the SAMR theoretical framework for gradual introduction to technology integration in the classroom.

A Wonderful Visual Timeline of The History of Classroom Technology

A Wonderful Visual Timeline of The History of Classroom Technology | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"The history of educational technology is an eventful timeline full of amazing breakthroughs that have radically transformed the educational landscape and reshaped the basic notions of literacy and learning. However, if you sit back and reflect upon these developments in their relation to education, you will notice that the first decade of the 21st century alone witnessed a digital revolution that is unprecedented both in breadth and grandeur and with it comes the emergence of new learning concepts such as MOOCs, flipped learning, mobile learning, to mention but a few."

Schools needs IT professionals with a passion for education | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
"Is your technology dept. run by an IT professional or an educator?
Over the past several years I've seen K-12 school districts on both sides of this proverbial fence, and I also have acquaintances and colleagues in one roll or the other. However, I've seen very little discussion on the topic, and it's a shame. Real conversation about this position needs to happen. There are undoubtedly hundreds of Superintendents staffing this position for the wrong reasons."

5 Bad Technology Habits Teachers Can Fall Into

"Computer-based testing. Flipped classrooms. eLearning and online courses. Mobile learning. Personalized learning algorithms.

 

Technology has revolutionized learning – and teaching. It doesn’t always work as planned, but when it does, technology can promote student engagement, boost efficiency and help tomorrow’s workers develop the tech skills employers so desperately want. That is, of course, assuming teachers know how to use it. Here are a few bad tech habits many well-meaning teachers succumb to in the classroom (and how to avoid them)."

Lubricating The Wheels Of Technology In Education

Lubricating The Wheels Of Technology In Education | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"My perception is that over the past decade, technology adoption in the classroom has been a case of the “shiny new thing” where teachers and schools have looked at technology as an end state, rather than a tool to use in the broader educational arsenal. Teachers looks at technology as a subject area, rather than as a tool applicable to all subject areas. It seems to me that this situation is changing as a generation of teachers who are digital natives, and who adopt technology as a part of their day to day workflow, rather than an adjunct, come into schools."

Students Want More Alignment of Tech In and Out of School | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
"A quarter of students in grades 3-5 and a third of students in grades 6-12 report using a mobile device provided by their school in class. This trend is more pronounced in Title I schools. Still, as tech use proliferates, digital equity has risen to the top as a concern for district leaders. Forty-six percent of district technology leaders say student access to the internet outside of school is one of the most challenging issues they face."
