Teaching in a Digital Age | The Open Textbook Project provides flexible and affordable access to higher education resources

Teaching in a Digital Age | The Open Textbook Project provides flexible and affordable access to higher education resources | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
The book examines the underlying principles that guide effective teaching in an age when everyone,and in particular the students we are teaching, are using technology. A framework for making decisions about your teaching is provided, while understanding that every subject is different, and every instructor has something unique and special to bring to their teaching.The book enables teachers and instructors to help students develop the knowledge and skills they will need in a digital age: not so much the IT skills, but the thinking and attitudes to learning that will bring them success.

Get Google Earth Pro for free - CNET

Get Google Earth Pro for free - CNET | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it
Most amazing of all, Google made this tool available for free. This despite an educational -- and, let's be honest, entertainment -- value that's virtually impossible to measure.

What you maybe didn't know is that Google has long offered a Pro version of Earth as well, one that cost a hefty $399 per year. Now, however, you can get Google Earth Pro absolutely free.

First things first: The words "free trial" still appear in that URL, but as you'll see when you click through to the sign-up page, "Sign up is no longer required for Google Earth Pro." All you have to do is download the installer, run it, then sign in using your e-mail address (as your username) and license code GEPFREE.

Do you remember when Google Earth first came online?  I do!  What a thrill to see the world flowing across your screen.  My teenage kids would take over the machine to search the world (usually starting with the location of our house).  


It was a thrill then, it's a thrill now.  Free Google Earth Pro. (Free is of course a relative term that we could philosophize over-- with Google you pay in data, not coin.  At least for now!

Sarah Johnson's curator insight, February 14, 2:17 PM

I have become really interested in Inverted/Flipped classroom experiences.  This allows a teacher to send home each child with a homework assignment to view a podcast, or a lecture, if you will.  The students return the next day and can actively participate in a classroom discussion or perhaps begin to explore the topic more in depth with other students.  The teacher can personalize the learning and provide 1 on 1 experiences based on student knowledge.  

 

The tools above from educators technology.com are a fantastic way to reach students and collect data and/or information to continue a unit or specific area of interest.

Equil Smartmarker captures, digitizes and streams whiteboard notes | Stu Robarts | GizMag.com | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

The notes made on a whiteboard during a meeting or lecture might be important, but once the board is wiped they're gone. The Equil Smartmarker, however, can make sure that's not the case. It can capture whiteboard notes and stream them to computers and mobile devices.

The functionality of the Smartmarker is similar to that of the Smart Kapp whiteboard, which pairs with a nearby mobile device via Bluetooth to stream any notes made on it to the internet for remote viewing. The Smartmarker, however, does not require the use of a special whiteboard.

The Smartmarker comprises a sleeve, into which a normal dry erase pen slots, and a sensor. The sensor attaches to a magnetic strip that can be stuck to one side of the writing surface using its adhesive rear. It can be used on most surfaces, including walls painted with dry erase paint, glass and traditional whiteboards. It can sense an area of up to 16 ft (4.9 m) across and 5 ft (1.5 m) vertically.

The sleeve allows the user to write on the whiteboard surface as usual, with different electronic tips used to communicate the use of different color pens. The sleeve continually communicates its location to the sensor via ultrasonic positioning.
