Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, Today, 9:14 AM

Excerpt:

Students who can use social media, web tools, video, and audio to research, collaborate, and explore in teamwork tasks, to problem-solve, communicate clearly, and critically think are only going to enhance their employability. It is an honour to be teaching at a time of educational technological revolution and it is our responsibility to work with our learners to find the tools that allow them to develop these skills.

Here are some tools that have worked for me and are fun, easy to use, and free.

Smart Apps For Special Needs: Good Free App of the Day: Mindshift - help teens and adults cope with anxiety | Going Digital | Scoop.it

Have you noticed a theme to my recent posts? I've been writing a lot about stress and anxiety, but I know it's a relatable topic for so many of us. I'm called on to offer support and guidance to others dealing with anxiety in both my personal and professional life. I want to share current and evidence -based resources. I also want to be able to practice what I preach! Mindshift is a free app by Creative B'stro that can help. It's a joint collaboration between two organizations in British Columbia: Anxiety BC and BC Mental Health and Addiction Services. Both websites feature a wealth of information and additional resources for children, teens, adults and parents. The mobile app is designed to help teens and adults cope with a variety of types of anxiety. The amount of content available in this free app is impressive. Take a deep breath and download Mindshift today.

Personalizing Social Emotional Learning with Google Forms (EdSurge News) | Going Digital | Scoop.it
When I was a classroom teacher, the best “tech” I had access to was a shared VCR/DVD player and a cracked overhead projector. As a result, I was unable to leverage technology for better “personalization” in my classroom, and so I leveraged relationships, instead.I “personalized” by getting to know m

60 Smarter Ways To Use Google Classroom ~ TeachThought

60 Smarter Ways To Use Google Classroom ~ TeachThought | Going Digital | Scoop.it

"Google Classroom is quietly becoming the most powerful tool in education technology.

"It may lack the visual appeal of iPads, or the student credibility of a BYOD program. It may not be as forward-thinking as we’d like here at TeachThought, but Google Classroom excels in providing solutions for a broad swath of teachers who have a variety of expertise and comfort level with education technology. It also uses Google’s familiar template that many teachers have used for years. As such, it scratches the itch for many teachers in many classrooms right here, right now.

"So below are (at least) 60 thing you can do with Google Classroom. We’ll be updating this list as new ideas come in, the platform changes, and we learn more about its subtleties on our own."

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, May 4, 9:21 AM

Librarians, you can think of using a blended model for some of the professional development you offer.  Possibly you begin a workshop with some face to face time.  Then move online to continue your conversation through Edmodo, a blog, a Facebook page, etc.  Later, you can consider meeting again face to face to showcase the learning.
