7 Technology Tools Every Educator Should Use [k-12 perspective]

7 Technology Tools Every Educator Should Use [k-12 perspective] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

"In a perfect world, here’s how I determine which of these hundreds (thousands?) of tools are student-ready:

• I try it myself. Does it work easily and as promised? Is it intuitive? Are there intrusive ads that will distract students as they work through the steps?

• Next, I query my social networks. Have my fellow tech teachers had success with this tool? What problems did they run into? Is it stable? If my e-colleagues find the glamour is only skin deep, I move on.

 

If a tool passes these two tests, I try it in class. Since I teach over 430 students every week, that’s the true barometer. If a program survives the hands-on grade-level labor of dozens of students, if they can create a project that supports their learning in new creative ways and still have fun, I’ve found a good tool."

sarspri's insight:

Good advice for developing the skill to filter all the potential new tools out there for a k-12 teaching environment. 

 

The seven include some old favorites (Jing, BigHugeLabs, Tagxedo, PollDaddy, Xtranormal, Voki) plus a new one: Nanoogo, a "visual communication canvas".
