Subtext - Turn any book or document into a digital classroom

Subtext - Turn any book or document into a digital classroom | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Subtext is a free iPad app that allows classroom groups to exchange ideas in the pages of digital books and documents. Teachers can also use our tools to layer enrichment materials, lesson plans and assessments over texts.

Subtext offers all the functionality of ereaders like iBooks and Kindle—for example, adjustable fonts, brightness control, text highlighting and a built-in dictionary. But that’s only the beginning. Subtext includes a number of unique features developed specifically for schools. A few of our favorites include must-haves like closed groups and volume purchasing and new additions like ‘Book Blog’ and ‘Save to Subtext,’ a bookmarklet that allows teachers to save Web articles to their shared group shelves in Subtext.

 

"Subtext is a free app. You need to purchase the retail books you read in Subtext (technically referred to as “trade books”), but you can read all types of content at no cost to you or your school: public domain books, documents in ePub format and Web articles imported into Subtext using a proprietary bookmarket called ‘Save to Subtext.’"

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This looks like a rather interesting application, very useful for addressing the CCSS with social media.

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"For Regional Geography, I ask that all my students take an online quizzes before coming to class because it is very difficult to intelligently discuss European issues if you don’t know the countries of Europe, where they are and what other countries are on their borders.  Quizzes and knowing places doesn’t define geography, but if geography were English literature, knowing about places could be described as the alphabet–before you write a sonnet or critique an essay, you better know your ABC’s and basic grammar.  Given that, I like the Lizard Point Geography quizzes, Sheppard Software quizzes and those from Click that ‘Hood; they are simple, straightforward and comprehensive."

I love that she acknowledges that the words "open" "online" and "learning" are the most abused words in education today.

M.A.P.'s curator insight, December 20, 2013 7:18 PM

It is a different mindset, and personally, I think this is what open online learning should go instead of just thinking about program, enrollment, etc.

Teachers all over America are faced with this challenge of keeping students engaged in the classroom when their world outside of school is one of constant engagement and stimulation. Knowing the world outside of our institutional walls is only one step in addressing modern learning styles. How to act and adjust schools today is the next step in making the classroom of today ready for tomorrow.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

I’m not saying we should just make the current system better… we should change it into something else.

Great article for tech specialists!

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.
