Screen time; Quality versus Quantity

Screen time; Quality versus Quantity | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it
Is it really about the time students spend in front of screen, or the quality of things they do in front of a screen? For example, there is a difference between a child watching Sesame Street, as opposed to a child watching Sesame Street and talking about it during the program with an adult. Still the same amount of time in front of a screen, but the quality has definitely increased in the latter example.

10 Things I Learned From My #3D #Printer: An Early Adopter's Diary - PCMag

10 Things I Learned From My #3D #Printer: An Early Adopter's Diary - PCMag | Handy Online Tools for Schools | Scoop.it
How can I possibly describe what it's like using a 3D printer for a year? It's not easy. It's sort of like asking someone why they like sunsets or the opera. Instead, let me describe the 10 things I learned over the last year—and what you can expect to go through yourself after you open the box of what I call "the best Christmas present ever."

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies

Snapchat Essentials for Curious Newbies | Handy Online Tools for Schools | 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)....
