Why good leaders make you feel safe

Why good leaders make you feel safe | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
What makes a great leader? Management theorist Simon Sinek suggests, it’s someone who makes their employees feel secure, who draws staffers into a circle of trust. But creating trust and safety — especially in an uneven economy — means taking on big responsibility.

Interesting take: being a great leader is like being a parent, to give opportunities, education, discipline so they can grow up and achieve more than we could for ourselves.

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay

Why Digital Learning Is Here To Stay | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Digital learning is coming whether people like it or not. The new standards call for it. Twenty-first century readiness requires it. Future jobs rely on it. There is no doubt that educational technology has the power to motivate kids, so why not harness that passion in the K-12 classroom? There are many reasons why digital learning has arrived and is here to stay.

"At this point, some of you are probably sick of hearing about Minecraft. It has gone from game to phenomenon, selling bajillions of copies and crowding the mindscape of 6th graders everywhere for what seems like centuries. But before you go, there may be some lessons you can takeaway for your classroom–lessons that can help promote the creativity in students you’ve been looking for."

I made a “Mystery Calendar” for October.  I found a list of historical people and events from October here, and chose 4 of them.  Then, I used iMovie to create short videos that gave clues about each one.  Because I have a Mac at home, I had a bit of trouble finding a good calendar template for the iWorks suite, but I finally landed on a good template for Numbers here.

Below is a list of apps that allow teachers to create and hold a quiz or poll in their class. A great way to start a lesson to ensure you pitch the lesson at the right level or even to use as a exit poll. Find one that suits you and your students."

"So congrats you've got your new iPad and can't wait to start using it. I know excitement and curiosity to discover newly bought things particularly electronic gadgets makes us want to learn everything about them quickly. Unfortunately it does take a little time and practice ( usability) to get yourself pretty familiar with your iPad. My advice is to start with  some " how to " video tutorials " available on YouTube and get yourself acquainted with the different specs in your iPad. Now comes the second task which is that of searching for and selecting the apps to install. I compiled the list below featuring some of the fundamental apps you should start with."

Great place to start when you get a new iPad. I use Evernote religiously.

MFaculty's curator insight, January 3, 2014 9:40 AM

I actually use most of these apps daily; specifically Evernote, Gmail, Kindle and Dropbox. Although I have the Nook app, I have yet to use it, which may account for it missing from the list of ten.

The Penultimate app seemed intriguing so I've downloaded it, and will kick the tires to se whether or not it stays in my app collection.

 

This listed collection is pretty good, but I wonder what others consider to be their top ten essential apps for the iPad?
