Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, September 17, 11:17 AM

321 free tools. It's an odd number, in more than one way. I cannot imagine the work to compile this list nor the work involved to determine which of these tools might be best suited for a teacher and his or her classroom. Of course, this list is only the beginning of possibilities.

20 years on: How education has changed - Innovate My School | EFL and ESL Techno Skills | Scoop.it

Technology allows me to assess my students in ways that simply was not possible formerly. I can see at the tap of a screen or a click of a button what level each student has attained and I can then plan accordingly. Differentiated instruction really becomes achievable with such technology, not only in the level of tasks set, but in the way in which students can tackle their work.

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.
