50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About | Edudemic

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About | Edudemic | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved.

 

Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers.

Competency-Based Online Education: The Rising Tide of College Affordability - e-Literate via @WeejeeLearning

Competency-Based Online Education: The Rising Tide of College Affordability - e-Literate via @WeejeeLearning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

by Phil Hill

One of the interesting trends over the past year or two is the emergence of educational delivery models as a locus of innovation – with new business models, applications of technology, and tight integrations of educational content and delivery platforms. In part 1 of this series, I described a new landscape of educational delivery models. In part 2 I described the master course concept that is the basis for most scalable for-profit and not-for-profit online programs. In part 3 and part 4 I described the emergence of MOOCs as well as four barriers they must overcome to become self-sustaining. In this post, I’d like to focus on the less glamorous, but perhaps more significant, movement in self-paced and competency-based online education.

Today there is cause for a small celebration, as I handed over the manuscript for the second edition of Rethinking Pedagogy for a Digital Age (which is just as well as I see it’s already available on Amazon!). I’m grateful to all the authors who have engaged not just with revisiting and rewriting their chapters, but also with our peer review and collaborative writing processes over the past nine months or so.

Free Technology for Teachers: Stiple - Create Interactive Images | TY @Edtweeps | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Stipple reminds me quite a bit of ThingLink. Both services could be used to enhance images with videos and links that they find on the web. One possible use could be to have students upload images of the solar system (or parts of the solar system) then add pinmarks with videos and links about the solar system. You could also have students upload images of famous landmarks and add pinmarks with information about what makes those landmarks significant.

Mobento ofrece una buena cantidad (no de las más amplias, pero considerable) de vídeos educativos y documentales en diversas categorías, como astrobiología, astronomía, química, cambio climático, diseño, economía, historia, matemáticas, filosofía… pero lo que diferencia a Mobento de los demás portales de vídeo educativo no es ni sus categorías ni sus vídeos, si no su buscador de contenido.
