50 of the best Free Apps for teachers

50 of the best Free Apps for teachers | Going Digital | Scoop.it
That’s a pretty general and subjective idea. The best for them as human beings–health, finances, and entertainment? The best for them in the classroom? To connect with other educators? To stay on top of emerging tools and trends in education? To use with students?

For iOS, Android, or Windows Phone? Can we assume there’s WiFi access? Is data use an issue? What about data privacy? And what do we mean by “free” Truly free? Are in-app purchases available? Necessary? Is it a free version that has hideous banners everywhere?

To say that there is a lot to consider is an understatement.

That said, we’ve taken a wide-lens view of the modern teacher and taken a stab at what might be considered 50 of the best really, truly actually free apps available for iOS. They may have some paid options, but they’re each entirely useful without spending a penny.

While we do look at music, health tracking apps, and other teachers-as-a-human-being apps, we focus mostly on the kinds of digital content that will help you teach more effectively to a wider range of students in more compelling and dynamic ways than ever before. All free.

FAQs about Makerspaces

FAQs about Makerspaces | Going Digital | Scoop.it
What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?
Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.

Where should the Makerspace be placed?

Makerspaces can be located just about anywhere, but there are certain spaces that make more sense in a school setting. Often, the school library is selected to start a Makerspace, as a central location for students and because of the expertise of the librarian. Another option is an unused classroom; if there is an unused woodshop, this might be an ideal space as well. If you are starting small, create a Makerspace right in your classroom.

Start small and see where it takes you. Get the students involved. Give them a voice, get them invested.

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, May 2, 11:00 AM

When I went to the CSLA conference in San Diego in February, I was shocked at how few library professionals who attended were NOT on social media. Deborah Ford presented about marketing for school libraries, and asked for a show of hands: Who's on Twitter? Pinterest? Facebook? Who uses these SM tools for work? Hardly anyone in the room was!  

 

This is a great article to share with any educator who is hesitant to get started with social media!
