it can get confusing (for us, seasoned teachers) to recall which does what when we use these tools infrequently.  This user-friendly chart is a very helpful as it defines what to use for which purpose.

Below is a list I have been working on for the last couple of days. This list features some interesting web tools for teachers keen on integrating technology into their instruction and work routine. I did my best to included as many tools as possible. There are loads of web platforms that are educationally focused and to contain them all in one list is way beyond the scope of a short blog post like this , therefore I selected only what I deemed the most important. I hope you ll enjoy the selection.

There are so many different challenges that technology integration in the classroom presents teachers.

It can be fun, hugely rewarding, and a big giant headache, too. But just because it can be …

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, August 31, 10:49 AM

This post links to a video by Paul Hamilton, Technology in Education. In this 4 minute video Hamilton asks 8 questions that we may want to share with our community, be it our staff, our parents, or the broader community, to begin a dialogue that is lacking in many school districts. Three of the questions he raises are below. Take the time to click through to the post to read the other 5, and if possible find the time to watch this video.

* What do we ant technology to do in schools?

* Are we asking the right questions about technology, learning, and schools?

* Is the way we are using technology now turning our students 'off' to the people and the world around them?

Establishing A Culture Of “Can” In Your Classroom

Establishing A Culture Of “Can” In Your Classroom | TWC Learn New Things | Scoop.it

"The long-term output of any school should be not just proficient students, but enabled learners. An “enabled” learner can grasp macro views, uncover micro details, ask questions, plan for new knowledge and transfer thinking across divergent circumstances. This doesn’t happen by content “knowledge holding,” or even by the fire of enthusiasm, but by setting a tone for learning that suggests possibility, and by creating a culture of can."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 4, 9:35 PM

One of my favorite videos on growth mindset is Carol Dweck sharing the word yet, specifically where she says that if a student says "I can't do that" she says to tell the student to say "I can't do that yet." To me that is a way to shift the culture of the classroom, where students learn that as time goes on what they are able to do things they could not before.

This post explores this culture of "can", sharing ideas on how you might move your classroom to reach this culture. Three areas are discussed.

1. Use the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model

This is a model that many of us may already use. The post describes it as "show me, help me, let me." In my school we talk about "I do, we do, you do."

2. Intentionally Use the Individual Student as a Culture-Maker

This requires that we find the time as we teach to "honor the contribution of others," specifically our students. Culture does not grow from a top down approach.

3. Diverse — and Authentic — Terms for Success

Creating a classroom that is learner centered, where students also have input to help create authentic learning.

More information on these concepts are in the post.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, August 5, 11:36 AM

Love the ideas here and realize the challenge of the mission. Our kids need to embrace their mistakes as learning opportunities rather than expect immediate mastery and feedback with praise.  i am thinking of making a classroom poster ( or posters) with the Word "YET" in giant letters and use that as our mantra.
