This would make an interesting project for students. Have them create an ABCs presentation or booklet. Maybe give each student or pairs of students a letter.

The Profile of a Modern Teacher | Infographic

The Profile of a Modern Teacher | Infographic | Going Digital | Scoop.it

One of the greatest misconceptions in education today is that certain teachers have a higher natural aptitude in technology than others.

This inspirational graphic sets out to disprove that notion and remind the audience that external skills are only a function of the internal dispositions that allowed them to grow.

Me parece excelente infografía, porque ciertamente lo más importante es cómo internamente es el profesor y no la tecnología que está afuera esperando ser utilizada. Buena infografía para tenerla en cualquier conferencia para motivar cambio.

Free Technology for Teachers: Organizing Research with Diigo Outliner | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Sarah McElrath's insight:

I love diigo -- in part as a great way to bookmark sites (including highlights and notes) and also as a Professional Learning Network. The potential for classrooms was high before -- a way to do group research but still managed by the teacher--and now with outliner, it is an even better option for students/classrooms.

If you have other reasons you dig Las

3 Apps Students Can Use to Document and Show Their Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

3 Apps Students Can Use to Document and Show Their Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Going Digital | Scoop.it

here are several ways students can display and document their learning from creating digital portfolios to posting in a blog or a wiki. Creating digital mashups is also another potent strategy to use in this regard. The strength of this practice, besides enabling students to capture and document their learning processes, is the fact that it initiates them into the world of multimodality and allows them to express their voices through different modes.

I use these with my own children. Hand them an iPad in the evening and have them describe something they learned during the day. Great way to reinforce skills in communication.
