UPDATE: there have been many requests to buy the print – thank you! We’ll be looking into it this week – so hopefully by the end of the week (that being Friday March 25), we should have something available. Thanks again for all your support and positive attitude, it’s so wonderful to see so many of you enthusiastic about giving credit where credit is due. x

Google Docs Research Template - A Stepping Stone | Educational Technology in the Library | Scoop.it

Earlier this year I designed a template to introduce teachers to the usefulness of using Google Presentation as a tool for research. The purpose of the template is for use as a starting point to help teachers plan and implement technology driven learning experiences that are fueled by Essential Questions and aligned to Common Core Standards.

I Bet You Didn’t Know Your Webcam Could Do This! 5 Tips To Help You Use Its Full Potential | MakeUseOf | Educational Technology in the Library | Scoop.it

by Tina Sieber

 

"Almost every device now is equipped with at least one camera. They make virtual meetings with family and friends a little more personal. Rather than staring at a static profile image and hearing a distant voice, you can visually interact with the other person, read facial expressions, and thus better understand how the human on the other end feels. This subtle information adds a lot of depth to conversations.

 

"But webcams can do a lot more than enhance virtual conversations. Few of us use their full potential for fun, convenience, and safety"

remind101

remind101 | Educational Technology in the Library | Scoop.it
A safe way for teachers to text message students and keep in touch with parents.

 

Description by Christine Garland of Remind 101

 

"Remind101 is a free, safe messaging service for teachers to communicate with students and parents via text or email. Teachers sign up for an account, create classes or groups, gather subscribers, and start messaging. This is all done without ever sharing their personal cell phone number, or collecting phone numbers from their students or parents.

 

"Teachers are now using the service for all sorts of reminders from, “Don’t forget to bring $20 and your signed field trip form tomorrow,” to “Biology test Fri. Study chapter 9 extra hard!” to “I’m so proud of how hard you’ve all been working! Keep it up,” the uses are endless, and the more they use it, the more they seeresults.

 

"Parents love it too. Between classroom websites, calendars, emails and newsletters…they’ve got a lot to keep up with. And all this is between their day-to-jobs, familial obligations, chores, dinner, etc. With Remind101 parents get a quick snapshot of what their kids are learning and how they can help keep them on track…straight to the one tool they always have on them, their cell phone.

 

"Remind101 was built to make it ridiculously simple for teachers to navigate the ever increasing technology adoption (and sometimes distraction), and communicate with students and parents. Remind101 makes staying connected as simple as sending a text!"
