Technology Integration for Math Engagement » Doceri vs the World of Education Apps! | Educational Technology in Grades 7-12 | Scoop.it

"Okay, maybe not the world, but it certainly has completely changed how and where I am able to teach within my classroom. If you have ever used Splashtop (Remote Desktop) to control your computer through your iPad, you will want this! How about Educreations, ShowMe, ScreenChomp, or Explain Everything? Yes, you should check out the Doceri app!"

Michael Benich's insight:

The best IWB app I've ever seen. I've been using this since day 1 this year in Math, and it integrates perfectly with online textbooks.

Michael Benich's insight:

We have a Smartboard in our classroom, but if you don't have the SmartNotebook software on your personal computer, it's difficult to create and plan lessons on your own time.

 

This site allows you to create, open, and edit notebook files from any computer with an internet connection.

Easy infographic creator - easel.ly

Michael Benich's insight:

Microsoft Paint is to Easel.ly as Powerpoint is to Prezi. Slick flash interface to make gorgeous infographics. Really impressive quality, but still in beta. Would really knock some socks off for a presentation or book report.

Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms
through a series of educational games and exercises via smartphones and tablets. Our apps are super simple and take seconds to load
and run.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Michael Benich's insight:

One of my favorite teacher / student clickers because it's supported on any device, including the web. I control mine with the iPad and use the laptop cart, so this software works in case you're not 1-1 with iPods or iPads yet.

Bring your own device and transform student mobile devices for quick data analysis and allow instant feedback to assess learning.

Adam Schulman's curator insight, May 16, 7:24 AM

This is a great tool! Socrative allows teachers to prepare interactive quizzes that can be used in real time.  Once the teacher is prepared to start the quiz, he/she can have them login to the quiz room from their tablets or smart phones.  My favorite style of running the quiz is through the space race, which shows how quickly each student can answer the questions.  The quizzes can either be multiple choice, short answer, and true or false.  The quizzes will also be able to show a clear breakdown of how the students answered the questions.
