Refreshing your on- and offline spaces with a bit of library eye candy — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

Refreshing your on- and offline spaces with a bit of library eye candy — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership | Scoop.it

"There’s redecorating and there’s just plain old decorating.


When it comes time for a bit of library refreshing, in the form of posters and bulletin boards, there are so many wonderful shared options. In the spirit of fall refreshing, I thought I’d refresh on of my posts, Fall decorating: a round-up of smart (and free) posters, from a few years back.


As I mentioned back then, every year, as we move back into our libraries and classrooms, we search for meaningful, inspiring, attractive visuals to fill our display cases, to grace our bulletin boards, to embed on our websites and most importantly, to engage and inspire those who visit."

After writing about iPad apps for elementary teachers, we are sharing with you today a list designed specifically for our colleagues teaching in high school. Of course there are tons of good educational iPad apps out there but limiting our list to only 10  titles forces us to selectively feature what we believe, based on our long app reviewing experience, are some of the best iPad apps for high school teachers. Have a look and, as always, your feedback is much appreciated.

" iPad provides endless learning possibilities for students. From apps to help with learning math and science to apps for doing 3D anatomy and virtual field trips, you name it, the educational app store has probably an app for it. The theme for our list today is motivation. We believe that motivation is the backbone of learning and with motivation comes engagement and better performance. To this end, we are sharing with you some excellent iPad apps with huge motivational potential. You can use these apps with students to engage them in hands-on learning activities across different disciplines. We have particularly focused on creation apps that allow students to create learning materials using a mixture of multimedia content."

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership | Scoop.it

Snapchat is arguably the most popular social media app around. But if you’re one of those folks who’s downloaded it to your smartphone and you're still not quite sure what to do (and you don’t want to ask one of the teenagers you know), here’s a quick getting-started guide to show you the basics.

What is Snapchat?

One of the things that Snapchat is best known for is the ephemeral nature of the content - you take a photo or video and send it to a friend and they have a limited number of seconds (up to 10 seconds maximum) to view the content before it disappears.

Before you send your snap, you can mark it up with text, stickers, or special lenses that give your selfie a silly look (big cartoon eyes, puking rainbows… it sounds odd but quickly becomes strangely charming)....
