We do still need to remember that to get it right with the student you need to get it right with the teacher. As John said "keeping it simple and general is still the key"

Jan Eade's curator insight, August 21, 2013 12:17 AM

Some interesting apps here which are worth looking at, but I am not sure why some of them are classified as teacher apps.

The egregious, licentious and thoroughly awful video that is circulating ‘celebrating’ a Bar Mitzvah contains so much that is offensive that it requires restraint to hold oneself to three ways in which this display slaughters the spirit.

"Google Forms is one of the potent services Google provides for free for its users. Using Google Forms, you can very easily and without the need for any advanced technology knowledge create all kinds of forms to use with your students from contact forms to quizzes and polls. Since its inception a few years ago, Google Forms has undergone some major updates and the last one in this regard is enabling users to embed pictures and images into forms."

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.
