10 Tools for Digital Storytelling in Class | classroom tech for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Digital storytelling is simply using computer-based tools to tell stories. There are many different ways to do this – from making movies, recording voices, creating animations or electronic books. In schools they can help to take a task that might be seen as mundane – write a report, write a story, explain a process, describe an experiment – and turn it into something a whole lot more interesting.

Hacker and Teacher: The Perfect Match | MindShift | classroom tech for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Hacker and Teacher: The Perfect Match: Startup Weekend, here’s the general idea: entrepreneurs have 54 hours — from Friday night until Sunday afternoon — to pitch an idea, assemble a team, and build and demo a product.

Simple meet me - Instant back channel chat room

Simple meet me - Instant back channel chat room | classroom tech for students and teachers | Scoop.it

If you work in a computer lab or wireless environment and you want to encourage your students to bring along laptops and mobile devices and participate in your lessons, then SimpleMeet.Me is a really useful tool. Personally, I have found that using a back channel in this way has transformed the way I teach and enabled me to completely do away with using any kind of paper handouts in class - so no more photocopying. It's also reduced the amount of wasted time struggling with students misspelling URLs and increased engagement during the classes
