Have you considered having your students create a digital portfolio? As we move more and more to digital technology the ability to do this becomes easier, and the reasons you might do so seem to increase.A few of the reasons you might consider digital portfolio:

* students are able to  see their progress over time;

* it helps you as a teacher be able to track student progress more easily;

* it is easy to share with other teachers as students matriculate;

* they provide a tool for teacher and student to communicate.

One issue that has often stopped folks is how to save these portfolios. This post share four resources that you might consider using to do this: Evernote, Google Sites, WordPress and Edublogs. Each has a short explanation, oftem providing pros and cons.

Cool Cat Teacher Blog: 15 Fantastic Ways to Use Flipboard

Cool Cat Teacher Blog: 15 Fantastic Ways to Use Flipboard | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Vicki Davis

 

"Flipboard is a phenomenal reading app for the ipad and was the big reason I begged my family to give me one for my birthday.

"However, because so little content is really produced FOR the flipboard, you have to know how to add it. You only get two screens of content (for now) so use it well."

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”)

 

There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.

Kahoot! | Game-based blended learning platform & audience response system

Kahoot! | Game-based blended learning platform & audience response system | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Kahoot! is a blended learning platform which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. Kahoot!

Jim Lerman's insight:

This looks like a potentially quite powerful tool, enabling students to use any internet device as a response system and instructors to easily and quickly set up quizzes, polls, and feedback scenarios -- all for FREE. A smartboard is not needed, instructor can use a computer connected to a simple projector or a large-screen TV. Game-like competitive elements add motivation to participate.


Perhaps not a killer app, but certainly one that many classrooms can put to effective use...and the price is right.


Some interesting demo videos and user interviews are located here:

Thanks Jim! It's very early days for us at Kahoot! but what we can promise is there's a lot more to come. Quizzing is just the very beginning - so please join us on our journey :)

The future of Kahoot! lies in the power of 100s of students and their smart devices connected in one space, simulating the real world with social exchanges, discussions, challenges, collaborations, democratic processes, computing real life problems and ethical dilemmas - simultaneously with millions of other students and classes across the globe.

by Vicki Davis

 

"QR Codes(Quick Response Codes) are just barcodes. There is nothing fancy about them.

"Just like the grocery store clerk uses barcodes to look up the product and scan the price into the computer, your mobile device or computer can look up QR codes to:

take you to a website, read some text, give you a phone number, or generate a text message.


"QR Codes are barcodes of information that hardlink the physical world with the online world. They are considered a form of simple augmented reality.

"QR Codes in the Classroom 
For the classroom teacher, they are valuable for three reasons:

They can save us time.They can save paper.They provide a link to mobile devices that help students do their homework and follow along.


"This Post.
This blog post is divided into three parts. First, you have to be ready to use QR Codes, then you have to teach the students. Finally, we learn seven ways QR codes are being used in the classroom RIGHT NOW."

How To Use iPads For Personal Professional Development - Edudemic

How To Use iPads For Personal Professional Development - Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Carey

 

"As an educator, when I am given a new tool my first thought is “how can I use this in the classroom? How will I roll this out?” However, I have learned over the years that I need to pause, step back, and think, “Okay, how is this tool going to make my life and job easier? How can I use iPad to make me a better teacher?” Before I rush ahead with how I am going to roll out this device in my classrooms, I need to effectively incorporate it into my life and figure out how to use iPads to make me a better teacher."
