Evernote: A 0-to-60 MPH Guide | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Evernote is many things to many people because it’s so powerful. But for the same reason, Evernote’s purpose is vague enough that it can be hard to get started with it. First, you have to figure out what it can do for you.

How To Writing: App Smashing With A Publishing Menu - Zig Zag Tech

How To Writing: App Smashing With A Publishing Menu - Zig Zag Tech | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
After our collaborative How To writing project, everyone was quick to get started on their own “expert” stories. Making lists of things we’re experts at helps generate ideas, then the stories start to flow!



We’ve published our writing several different ways this year, so I offered an idea menu of apps to publish with to my class. This is by no means a comprehensive list of tools. I just wanted to provide them a jumping off point to get started when they were ready to publish. Please feel free to download the menu here.

Advantages in Coding, Part 1: An Application of Math - My Experiments in Teaching & Learning @ECiardelli

Advantages in Coding, Part 1: An Application of Math - My Experiments in Teaching & Learning @ECiardelli | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Many teachers are starting to code in math classrooms.  I have integrated coding in math initially to start a coding club.  I soon realized that coding is best suited as an option in learning.  There are many benefits to coding that I have found.  The benefits are too extensive for one blog post.  So I am starting a series of blogs to emphasize the advantages.

For my first post, I would like to highlight that coding is an excellent application of math skills.  All math can be applied to daily life.  As teachers, we have to apply learning so that our students see relevance.  Coding applies so beautifully to math.  It emphasizes these skills so naturally.

How we can use Periscope in the Classroom! @JayWigmore | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
I recently discovered a new app: Periscope that has been drawing a lot of attention lately.  I have been exploring the app both on a personal level and trying to find uses in my classroom.  Thanks to my #peel21st pln, I’m finally getting these thoughts down.  So I thought I’d begin with a quick overview of what Periscope is all about, explain how I have used it so far, move into future uses, and then some concerns and questions I am still working through.

We have, however, recently expanded upon our Makerspace offerings thanks to being inspired by several of my librarian friends in our amazing #TLChat PLN! Kids can come in during lunch or when they've finished their work to explore, craft, and create in the Library Media Center.


I re-purposed 4 empty study carrels for this Makerspace center at the top corner of our library.  The grouping includes a Lego Creation Station, a Duct Tape Craft Cubby, and a Makey Makey Coding Corner."

Little Story Creator - A Free App for Creating Multimedia Stories - iPad Apps for School | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Little Story Creator (not to be confused with the similar sounding Little Story Maker) is a free iPad app that students can use to create multimedia stories on their iPads. The app was designed with students in mind and is therefore rather easy to use. On the app students can create multiple page stories. On each page of their stories students can add images and videos, type text, draw, and apply digital stickers. Students can also record audio on each page to narrate their stories.
