"The team confirmed several of my personal favorites: Pinterest, Smore, Easel.ly, TED Ed, and DPLA, for instance. But I learned about so many truly useful new tools this morning, my mind was racing with plans for both personal use and serious fall implementation.

Here is a list of  some of those new-to-me discoveries:

 

-Workflowy: for planning an organizing

-FlipSnack: for digitally publishing professional looking flip books.  I’ll check this out as an alternative to Issuu.

-LitPick:  a global network  that offers free books to preteen and teen book reviewers in exchange for book reviews 

-Socrative: a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational exercises and games via smartphones, laptops, and tablets.

-QuadBlogging: allows four schools to blog together and share student writing

-Biblionasium:, a Goodreads alternative for young readers (look for a full post on this one later this week)

-Marqueed: a collaborative platform for annotating images and PDFs

-Inklewriter: a platform for writing interactive, branching stories (ala choose your own adventures)  Stories can be published to Kindle.

-myHistro: allows stories to be created and shared as mashed-up maps

-19 Pencils: a library/search tool for locating, sharing and using K-6 educational resources

-iCivics: founded by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the site includes 18 educational video games, teaching materials, and a comprehensive, standards-aligned civics curriculum,

-Wonderopolis: the National Center for Family Literacy celebrates the learning moments in everyday life—ones that fit in with dinner preparations, carpool responsibilities, a stolen moment between breakfast and the bus, or within school curriculum and education programs.

-Youngzine: child-centered zine by and for kids in grades 8 through 12 where they can learn about current events around and events shaping their world using fun trivia,  visuals and videos.

-Seriously Amazing: The Smithsonian presents seven quirky characters who symbolize the questions the Smithsonian asks and answers every day.

-Codeacademy: teaches kids to code interactively in a variety of languages

Collaboration lights the learning fires: International, national, regional... oh just get outside of the school walls!


Back in the Compuserve days I ran a 'sneaker net' collaboration between my rural middle school kids in Nevada and a high school class in Tatebashia Japan. It was one of the most dynamic experiences of my teaching career.  These days the technology is so much more transparent. I had to gather word processed letters on a disk and send them out via my home 300 baud modem on Friday nights. Now you can interact in real time. 


If you haven't tried global collaboration with your students, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Jan MacWatters's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:40 AM

Global e pals is a great way to get kids to understand how connected our world really is.

It's Here! The NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Library Edition | The New Media Consortium | Elementary TLs | Scoop.it

The report describes findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, giving library leaders and staff a valuable guide for strategic technology planning. The format of the report was designed to provide these leaders with more in-depth insight into how the trends and challenges are accelerating and impeding the adoption of technology, along with their implications for policy, leadership, and practice.
