Though I advocate and try to use the built-in iOS dictation feature for the iPhone and iPad, there are occasions when good old touch typing must suffice.

An interesting apps that revealed interesting feedback on my two-finger approach to typing. Brings one back to the old days when keyboarding was part of the curriculum.

How to use the Google Research Tool to improve Essay Writing | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Whilst the Google research tool has been a part of Google drive for a few
years now  It amazes me how few teachers and students are aware of what it
can do.

In short the research tool is the perfect accomplice for writing an essay
or creating a project.  It will not only provide you with all the facts and
answers you require but also cite them.  And that's just the beginning.

Gamification Does Not Mean Playing Games | ExitTicket.org

Gamification Does Not Mean Playing Games | ExitTicket.org | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
Gamification is less about games than it is about a fun-filled incentivization program. Happy hour is a great example of gamification: By setting up a reward of discounted drinks, patrons will voluntarily modify their behavior and show up at a designated time. Playing an educational game, on the other hand, is an entirely different concept. As confusion about this concept persists, I decided to delve into the topic and check in on some of the leaders of gamification.In one of my last post about gamification, I mentioned an incredible TED Talk that still serves as the best primer on the principles of effective gamification. It’s hard to appreciate that a small, virtual prize can prevent more disciplinary problems than a detention slip can resolve, but it’s true. And the increasing presence of technology in our classrooms is allowing teachers to recognize accomplishments in new and easier ways.Click headline to read more and access hot links--

The potential this site will have over the coming years is incredible. The premise is that many skills can be taught through games. This particular article references two game programs that I would like to check in to. One is ExitTicket and the other is called Classcraft. In addition, there is a link to some background on using games through a TED Talk video.

We Were Wrong – A Lesson on Early Grade 21st Century Learning

We Were Wrong – A Lesson on Early Grade 21st Century Learning | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

"Driving Question: How early does equal access to 21st century learning start?

Prior to this project, we thought of academics and 21st century skills as separate things. Following a linear approach, first students needed to master important literacy skills, and then we could enhance the learning with integrated projects like "Stray, Stray, Go Away." We even worried that maybe 21st century skills would distract from the foundational skill like learning to read. It was thought that one was more important that the other, and guess what? We were wrong."

What happens when you take a kindergarten class and create a project-based learning opportunity on a local issue? In this case amazing success.

What is critical is to provide appropriate scaffolding so that all students (included English Language Learners) are comfortable and able to help with the presentation.

If you have concerns about implementing PBL in your classroom this article may help you realize that it can be done, even in kindergarten. Click through to the post to read this uplifting article.

"As a teacher, you are used to create your own lessons. The xerox, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint are your trusted companions. But how can you effectively use iPads in your lessons? The ebooks provided by publishers are mostly static and just not interesting enough for today’s students. Some educational apps are great, but finding the rights ones, figuring out how they work and getting them installed on all student devices can be a hassle. Aren’t there easy ways to create your own materials for iPad? Yes, there are! Try these:"

6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills

6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

"A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems."
