Though they’re often being lumped together, Microsoft’s HoloLens headset is a very different beast to the Oculus Rift. Whereas the Rift wants to transport you to a whole other virtual reality world, Microsoft’s augmented reality driven HoloLens wants to invade your real world. And that gives it a far wider potential for educational application.

Top 11 Wonderful Tools for Designers To Create Infographics - I am programmer

Top 11 Wonderful Tools for Designers To Create Infographics - I am programmer | Student Support | Scoop.it
For all the importance we place on text, it’s an indisputable fact that images are processed in the brain faster than words. Hence the rise and rise of the infographic which, at its best, transforms complex information into graphics that are both easy to grasp and visually appealing. No wonder magazine readers and web visitors love them.

Wheel of Autism Apps | DART | Student Support | Scoop.it

Wheel of Autism Apps - When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps. They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD. It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student.

From tips on how to effectively use Chromebooks in your instruction to subject-specific apps to enhance your lesson planning and delivery, these collections will definitely have you covered. However, as we were wading through our archive we pulled out some Chromebook apps which have really been popular among teachers.

6 Free Android Math Apps to Help You Survive Math Class

6 Free Android Math Apps to Help You Survive Math Class | Student Support | Scoop.it
Do you want to be an astronaut? You’ll need strong math skills. How about a scientist? An engineer? An accountant? A meteorologist? All of these careers — and a lot more — will require you to have an excellent mathematical ability.

Jobs that are in some way linked to math typically pay more, are better for your brain, and have fewer potential applicants.

There’s just one problem: for the vast majority of children at school and students at university, math is a) very hard, and b) very boring.

So, what to do? Fear not! Android to the rescue! Here are some of the best free Android math apps (Android math games exist too!) to help you survive math class.

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.
