Tool Matrix for Mobile Learning - Google Documents

Apple Distinguished Educator & Google Certified Teacher Lucy Gray started making a list of basic tools and categorized them by platform as part of another project. It's helpful for teachers, especially those new to integrating technology, to have a limited set of tried and true applications. This isn't complete, and she's great at keeping things updated.

A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: All About QR Codes in Your Classroom: Here Are 44 Sites to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) | Instruct.Engage.Connect | Scoop.it

My school does not allow students to use cell phones in the classroom. I don't agree with this policy, but rules are rules. However, assigning homework outside the classroom will allow your kids to learn a new way to use their smartphones, since texting seems to be the only thing they love to do. In June 2011, I did a post explaining QR Codes. With this post, I have put together a large listing which includes lesson ideas, QR apps for smartphones and QR code generators. Best part of all? The resources are free. The ideas are free. And if your school allows cell phones in the classroom, you'll be able to liven up your lessons!

Technology and Young Children | National Association for the Education of Young Children | NAEYC | Instruct.Engage.Connect | Scoop.it

The appeal of technology can lead to inappropriate
uses in early childhood settings. Technology and media are tools that are effective only when used appropriately. The appeal of technology and the steady stream of new devices may lead some educators to use technology for technology’s sake, rather than as a means to an end. Technology should not be used for activities that are not
educationally sound, not developmentally  appropriate, or not effective (electronic worksheets for preschoolers, for example). Passive use of technology and any type of screen media is an inappropriate replacement for active play, engagement with other children, and interactions with adults. Digitally literate educators who are grounded in child development theory and developmentally appropriate practices have the knowledge, skills, and experience to select and use technology tools and interactive media that
suit the ages and developmental levels of the children in their care, and they know when and how to integrate technology into the program effectively. Educators who lack technology skills and digital literacy are at risk of making inappropriate choices and using technology with young children in ways that can negatively impact learning and development.
