Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Get Smart by Texting w/ @Text_Engine | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Text Engine was developed to offer cell phone users a means to search the web using their text messaging service. This is great news for educators and students in low-income and rural communities.  

And that's a good thing, because while smartphones are popular, there is still a great need for text-only services in low-income and rural districts. There is also a need in districts like NYC that empower students to bring their own devices to school, but don't have the means to enable students to connect to the internet.

Think of the text capabilities of your phone as a search engine in your pocket?   Great tool and concept.

First Class Ice Breakers Using Mobile Devices - User Generated Education

First Class Ice Breakers Using Mobile Devices - User Generated Education | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D:

"All of my classes, regardless of student age or demographics – elementary gifted students or graduate students, begin with ice-breakers and team-building activities.  I recently developed a passion for using students’ mobile devices to do so as this devices have become natural and personalized extensions of students’ “selves.”"

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?

Done similar things with Padlet.

Here is a wonderful resource I came across today and wanted you to see as well. TCEA iPads Apps and iBooks is a resource page created by the folks in TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) which is a member-based organization devoted to the use of technology in education.
