3 Ways To Use Vine In The Project-Based Learning Classroom - TeachThought

3 Ways To Use Vine In The Project-Based Learning Classroom - TeachThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Project-based learning (PBL) — an educational approach in which students work together to solve real-world problems — is redefining how many kids learn. Vine, a social video app purchased by Twitter, is growing in popularity — and fast. What happens when the two collide? PBL teachers across the country intend to find out."

11 Must Have iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

11 Must Have iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Today while I was lounging in Victoria Park, I took my iPad and started thumbing around through the apps I have. I was really surprised to find out that I have many apps installed but only some are being used on a regular basis. So it dawned on me to compile a list of some "must have" apps  that teachers should have access to. All of these apps are great for organizational tasks such as :  task management, bookmarking, note-taking...and media storage.

How Should Your Classroom Look This Year? | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"It seems so simple, doesn’t it? Designing a creative space in your classroom will promote student creativity. However, many classrooms are far from being labelled as ‘creative spaces’. Schools in general have developed into very industrial places. You can feel the difference as soon you walk into the building. The difference between a creative space and a workspace can have a definite impact on how your students behave."

Common Core & Ed Tech: technology does more than just balance the playing field

Common Core & Ed Tech: technology does more than just balance the playing field | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Regardless of your school’s access - 1:1, BYOD, or a couple of tablets in the classroom – technology does more than just balance the playing field.  It offers opportunities to meet the standards, address 21st century skills, allows for differentiation, provides for creativity and choice, and most importantly, pushes students to reach those higher levels of thinking.  Creativity is no longer about those who are skilled in the visual and performing arts.  It’s about taking what you know and applying it to new and different situations. It’s taking what was imagined and making it real.  Technology helps make that happen.

Earlier this week I wrote a post about places tosearch for free online courses. One resource that I neglected to mention and subsequently had many people on Google+ remind me of is Coursera. Earlier this spring Coursera announced a new category of courses, Teacher Professional Development. Currently, thirty courses are scheduled in the new Teacher PD category. The next course begins in July.

A great resource for teachers to use when trying to personalize their Professional Development choices in your school.  As part of developing a culture of PD, teachers need to have access to courses and resources that fit their needs.  These online classes are the perfect start!
