Technology Integration, 1 to 1, and Student Centered Learning… Up To 20 Free Resources and Tools | 21 st Century Educational Technology and Learning

Technology Integration, 1 to 1, and Student Centered Learning… Up To 20 Free Resources and Tools | 21 st Century Educational Technology and Learning | IPad pilot | Scoop.it

"In the last post I focused on five important ideas I believe need to be in place to support student centered learning in a technology rich environment. Please note those five concepts be reviewing that first post.

 

In this post I wish to add to the ten tools I had shared in the last post. Remember that the items I have collected might be a tool, possibly a resource, or collection of resources. It might directly rely on technology or could possibly be a catalyst for integration through its implementation. I hope you find the next ten useful! You can always let me know what to add. In order to become a resource in this kit I had the following criteria:

 

Free or at least a free tierMultiplatform capabilityFairly easy learning curve for teachers and studentsProvide an avenue or resource that could facilitate student centered learningProvide content and performance based standards

 

Now lets take a look at the second half of my collection. Please enjoy and let me know what I might add!"

Great collection of resources for technology-enhanced instruction!
Jamie Dammann's curator insight, October 25, 2015 8:28 PM

Technology: I chose this resource because it has FREE resources for teachers and schools to use. This is important because a lot of our schools are on limited budgets and need resources that are easy and free so they can try them out and see what will work in their classroom setting.

Blue Planet Tales: Interactive Storybooks for Tablets @ClassTechTips

Blue Planet Tales: Interactive Storybooks for Tablets @ClassTechTips | IPad pilot | Scoop.it
I spend a lot of time visiting schools and talking to teachers about accessing text from tablets.  Blue Planet Tales is an app for iPads and Android devices that places interactive texts in the hands of students.  Students can read along with the text and there are questions at the end of each book.

Blue Planet Tales is a great choice for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments with a mix of Android and iPad tablets.  Students can access a variety of texts straight from their mobile tablet.  This app is full of stories that connect to social studies and science topics.  Topics include Apollo 11, Davy Crockett and Marie Curie.  The app is free to download and each book is purchased individually – users all have the option to sign up for a subscription service.

Jackie Gerstein makes a compelling argument. I'm witnessing a growth in the Maker Movement that is becoming exponential. It really is taking over K-12 and even higher education.

For anyone who is worried about how tech interested kids spend too much time in front of screens, the "maker movement" should provide relief. This list of maker resources is a bit old, but most of the resources seem to still be there.

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com | IPad pilot | Scoop.it
A 3D Printer is a manufacturing tool used to create three-dimensional artifacts that have been designed on a computer. 3D printers have a wide range of shapes, sizes, and types, but in essence they are all computer controlled additive manufacturing machines. Similar to how paper printers lay down ink in one layer to create an image, 3D printers lay down or cure material layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object.

3D printers have a huge range of applications; designers use them to test out product ideas, manufacturing companies use them to make complicated parts for assemblies, and makers use them for DIY fabrication for anything they can imagine. Although the different types and uses of 3D printers vary widely, all 3D printers can be simply described as tools; they allow people to make things that they weren't able to make before.

From this guide you will learn what 3D printers are, how they work, when they should be used, and how to design for them and use them. I'll also provide some resources on purchasing printers and 3D printing services. Once you're through it, hopefully you'll be able to print some things yourself!
