David Thornburg: Educational Technology’s Wild Card

David Thornburg: Educational Technology’s Wild Card | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

David Thornburg:


The fact is that the Chromebook emerged as a wild card in a field that never seems to stop and catch its breath.  Does this relegate tablets to the storage closets?  Of course not.  It merely suggests that we need to base our purchasing decisions on the best information we have at the time.  And, make no mistake about it, there will be something someday that eclipses the Chromebook.  This just reinforces the importance of ensuring that whatever purchase we make is based on the actually utility of the device to kids in support of their learning.  As long as we do that, we are on solid ground.

The 200 Best Special Education Apps | Edudemic

The 200 Best Special Education Apps | Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"If you’re a special education teacher or are simply looking for an innovative way to reach a student… this is for you. Many apps out there are useful in the classroom but they’re not always easy to find in the clogged-up app store.Ever tried searching for ‘education’ in the iTunes store? You won’t get a simple list of the top resources. Heck, that’s why places like ClassroomWindow have started up to help teachers sort the great stuff from the garbage.

 

"Regardless, a Scribd document by Eric Sailers details hundreds of helpful apps that are perfect for special education teachers and more."

The article needs updating I think - as I understand it, Google App Inventor was discontinued some time ago and transferred to MIT's App Inventor.
