Why I don't want an IWB (Interactive Whiteboard)

Why I don't want an IWB (Interactive Whiteboard) | Learning and Social Media | Scoop.it

Recently, I have been asked quite  few times about IWBs and which ones are best etc. My usual answer is 'none' and then I have to explain, so I thought, instead of explaining I would write this post so that I could point people towards each time they ask.

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic | Learning and Social Media | Scoop.it

Pinterest has taken off in the past few months. According to a Shareholic study, it exceeds reddit, Google+, Linkedin, and YouTube as a referral source. It may seem as though everyone you know is Pinning something to the online bulletin boards to share their favorite articles, collections, and items available online.

 

This is a great social networking tool that you can use for educational purposes, whether you are a teacher or a student.

 

This tool can make it possible to create boards for specific projects and to collect and share lesson resources.

 

Be sure to see the education page!

ESET QR Code Mobile Scavenger Hunt

Red Door utilized the emerging mobile technology of QR (Quick Response) codes to hide clues leading participants down a path of unique ESET experiences. For those without smartphones capable of reading the QR codes, Red Door created an SMS version of the hunt, where clues were unlocked by texting specific keywords to a shortcode.

At the end of the hunt, contestants received a boxed version of ESET's award winning software, and entered to win a Sony VAIO laptop by texting their email address to a shortcode.

The results were awesome! Over 120 people completed the hunt, and at the first clue (the ESET photo booth) a line formed at the start of the hunt that lasted for hours. The scavenger hunt engaged passers by and made them think about the ESET brand.
