"Below is an overview of the 5 best note-taking apps. Whichever Note taking app you chose to use. Stop using the simple Notes app that came with the iPad. It is not good enough to use in class. You need to use all of the other features of the iPad like, drawing, adding pictures and sound. Below is an overview of 5 different Note taking apps. Take this weekend to try out all of them."

Teacher librarians crucial in info age

Teacher librarians crucial in info age | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

We stand at the crossroads of two futures for Australian children. The first sees them navigating an increasingly interconnected world as savvy consumers and producers of information who are capable of critically assessing what they read, see and hear. The second sees many of them as simplistic, non-discerning searchers probably plagiarising much of what they produce, easy prey for those who wish to fool them.

What is the best way to ensure the first scenario? Make sure we have enough teacher librarians in our schools.

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

So you have decided to flip your classroom this year and invert your instruction method hoping to get more student engagement and boost their productivity levels. Well good thing  you are going to give Flipped Classroom a try but before that you need to make it clear to your students what this new method is all about and why not even explain it to their parents as well.

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.

 

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

 

Check it out here: http://pinterest.com/robingood/top-15-free-video-conferencing-tools-2012/

 

P.S.: Feel free to suggest tools you know that should belong in this collection.

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders.

Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important.

Os diretores de escolas nos EUA valorizam os seus bibliotecários. 90% dos administradores consideram que o trabalho desenvolvido pelos bibliotecários é importante e tem um impacto positivo nas escolas. Não obstante, os diretores também querem que os bibliotecários se tornem líderes mais visíveis. Estas são apenas duas das conclusões interessantes de uma pesquisa recente.

K-12 iPad Deployment Checklist

K-12 iPad Deployment Checklist | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

"School has started for most of us around the country. Alarm clocks are set, bleary-eyed kids stumble their way to class, and iPads are being handed out. Just a typical day here at Eanes and many districts across the country. As the amount of 1:1 schools and districts continue to grow with many different devices, but specifically the Apple iPad, I thought it might be good to reflect and share the laundry list of items we’ve prepared in getting ready for our roll-outs. (all high school students, 8th graders, and 2 grade levels at the elementary schools are 1:1 this year) I’ve already written about 10 things NOT to do in a 1:1 here (the list is growing in year 2) but what about things we SHOULD do?"

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You

The 100 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You | Instructional Technology in K-12 Schools | Scoop.it

One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011. In order to put together a list of the best Web 2.0 classroom tools, I polled my Twitter followers, Facebook fans (are they still called fans? Likes?) and ran a contest to try and get as many submissions as possible.

There were more than 900 submissions but many were duplicates. This left me with 100 different Web 2.0 tools that are recommended by your peers. After all, what better way to uncover new products than by the people you are already sharing with?
