50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Elementary Education and Technology | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

14 GREAT FACEBOOK GROUPS EVERY TEACHER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

facebook tips, social networking tools Med kharbach
Social media networking is a requisite for today's learning. We are living in a digitally wired world where the power of information rests with those who are properly 'connected'. In our context , a teacher who does not employ social media is deemed to be obsolete It is like driving a car for a decade without having an oil change. The engine will definitely get rusted and fell apart so do our minds when they do not have food for their thoughts. The food is plentiful and is everywhere you just need someone to show you where to start and this is our job here Educational Technology and Mobile Learning : help you get food for your thoughts using technology and also learn from your suggestions and feedback.




We have invested so much time and efforts into tapping into the potential of social networking in education and we have written some very popular guides in this regard. Check out these resources to learn more :



Facebook Guide for Teachers
Twitter Guide for Teachers
Pinterest Guide for Teachers
LinkedIn Guide for Teachers
Diigo Groups for Teachers




Today we are focusing more on Facebook and particularly the' group feature' that it provides for its users. As a teacher, you can easily create a group for your class and make it private so that only your students have access to it. You can also grant the admin privileges to some or even all of them and let them share resources, links, feedback, news about their school...ect. However, the purpose of this post is not about how to create a classroom group ( refer to Facebook guide above to learn more ) but rather about the groups and pages other teachers and educators have created and that you can yourself join to enhance your professional development and keep posted about the trending issues in the world of education and educational technology. I have selected some groups for you to start with and if you have other suggestions please share with us in the comment form below . SEE MORE....

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

Aumentar o engajamento e motivacao do aprendiz.


e a sua ?

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 2014 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education"

Content Curation Tool: eduClipper Launches Its "Pinterest For Education" | Elementary Education and Technology | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:
"This week the teacher-turned-entrepreneur Adam Below officially launched eduClipper, a platform that allows teachers and students to explore, share and contribute to a library of educational content. In both function and design, it’s essentially a Pinterest for education, with one notable difference: Because eduClipper is built exclusively for teachers and students, unlike Pinterest, you probably won’t find it blocked by your local school.

Educators and students can explore thousands of pieces of educational content, find lesson plans, resources and videos and search for the most popular content by subject or interest.

With eduClipper, users can share individual eduClips (or pieces of content) or eduClipboards (collections of content) with colleagues or students while cross-posting or embedding that content on other social platforms or sending them through email.

EduClips are created through the site’s bookmarklet (a Chrome extension), so once it’s installed in their browsers, teachers and students can grab any content they find on the web, Google Drive, Google Apps and more, and add them to their collection, i.e. their eduClipboards. Once grabbed, the site automatically grabs the source link, too, so that it’s easy to get back to the original content and easy to give proper citation.

Teachers and students can share these clipboards so that their classmates and colleagues can collaborate on assignments or in-class activities, create groups to share these resources with and align the content that’s clipped and shared to Common Core Standards. That’s the big advantage of eduClipper over Pinterest, that content can easily be organized and annotated for each class or subject by way of these learning collections. It also has the benefit of being created by a teacher who has spent the last five years searching for and curating the web’s best educational content..."

Zo te zien een prachtige manier om op een Pinterest-achtige manier online info en content te verzamelen voor in de klas. Iedere leerling kan er aan bijdragen en notities toevoegen via een bookmark app in Chrome. De originele link / vindplaats wordt tegelijk opgeslagen. Nice.
