Teacher's Simple Tutorial on How to Search for Apps on Google ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Simple Tutorial on How to Search for Apps on Google ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

For today, I am sharing with you another smart tip from Google. This is basically for those users searching for apps. As you know apart from the trusted blogs and websites that curate educational apps and provide them in ready made lists, it is a cumbersome task to search for apps on Google. For instance a search for Apps to create flashcards renders back more than 5 million  results. But Google provides a way for you to limit these results and narrow them down.

n today’s post I am sharing with you two important web tools that you can use with students in class to create interactive timelines. These timelines can include a wide variety of multimedia materials including: text, images, video, maps and many more. And in the case of Silk, there is even the possibility to invite collaborators to help with editing. Also, both of these apps are available for iPad users.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.
