"Today I am sharing with you a host of carefully selected apps that students can use on their iPads to help them both in the planning of their studies and  in their homework. Using these apps students will be able to organize their study materials, arrange their classes and courses, track their assignments and tasks and also collaboratively work on their homework. Of course the list is not exhaustive and there are several other apps to be added to it but I only included the 6 most popular ones."

"It’s a pretty hot topic of debate… Is the Internet making us smarter or dumber? Or is it just making us more volatile to the occasional ‘YouTube comment‘ outburst. I guess it would be difficult to comment on YouTube without the Internet… So maybe it is to blame! Well, according to this infographic from WhoIsHostingThis? the Internet is not to blame. In fact according to the stats below the Internet is actually making our kids smarter."

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order | IPads and technology in the classroom | Scoop.it
If you do anything professionally related to online technology, you understand the immense amount of data you need to sort through each day. There are the daily content roundups, blogs to read, Facebook posts and to check, tweets to scroll through and news sites. That doesn’t include whatever else arrives in your in-box. I literally cannot keep up with all that I want to know about social media technology and its use for engagement, fundraising and advocacy.It’s really too much to know. That’s when I began trusting the curators.Trusting the curators was a strategy I employed to begin to figure out what to read, what I needed to read, and what others whom I trusted thought was important to read. We cannot read it all. We cannot begin to imagine trying to read it all. We must trust to the curators.Trusting others to curate content has become my primary means for gathering relevant information about social media and particularly nonprofit technology.

"Being a passionate and inquisitive teacher in a digital, globally connected environment opens up so many opportunities for professional development. Like many teachers, I thrive on extending my knowledge in multiple areas, I want to know everything I can in order to make me better at my job and life in general. I am constantly seeking ways to inspire and better myself, other teachers at my school or in my wider PLN and importantly, students I engage with and teach. In an age of ‘infowhelm’ it can be hard to manage, truly engage in and learn from so much information. That is unless you have the right tools."
