Educational Technology Buzzwords

Educational Technology Buzzwords | Cool Digital Tools to Ignite your Lessons | Scoop.it

Education buzzwords have for a long time driven me insane as we spend our lives in schools latching on to phrase after phrase that tries to make us sound more knowledgeable without actually being more knowledgeable. I fear sometimes us “tech geeks” in schools ( definitely me included) are getting caught in the same trap as we move from one innovation to the next just to look more tech savvy than the next guy. This is a long list of edtech trends and pedagogies. It can seem quite daunting to the uninitiated and we can scare them off trying something really useful if keep pushing for more change.

Control Your IWB from your iPad | The Whiteboard Blog

Control Your IWB from your iPad | The Whiteboard Blog | Cool Digital Tools to Ignite your Lessons | Scoop.it

One of the positive features of the IWB in my eyes is that it puts the speaker next to the content – the pupils aren’t looking at a screen while the teacher is 6 foot away, with their back to them talking into their laptop screen. But there are times when you want to control what’s happening, or let the pupils control what’s happening, from somewhere else in the classroom. Wireless mice, slates and keyboards are good for this. But quite often now I get asked if it’s possible to control their IWB using an iPad.
