Hi Kimberly! Thanks for thumbs up!
Also we ask teachers to fill a survey that could help us to improve. Maybe you could find a few minutes to fill it yourself and pass to other teachers who use it? Thanks!

Staying Private on the New Facebook [NYTimes tool kit] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "Facebook insists it is up to you to decide how much you want others to see. And that is true, to some extent. But you cannot entirely opt out of Facebook searches. Facebook, however, does let you fine-tune who can see your “likes” and pictures, and, to a lesser extent, how much of yourself to expose to marketers.

 

The latest of its frequent changes to the site’s privacy settings was made in December. Facebook is nudging each of its billion subscribers to review them."

[Excerpt]: "I've always loved using comics in the classroom, and now it's become even more fun with the possibility to add audio to my comics strips. http://www.pixton.com/

 

This was my first trial with the aim to welcome my students to our EDMODO group. After creating your comic strip you can publish it on a website, like I'm doing right now, or by clicking on the Edmodo icon, this way it's automatically attached to your message to an edmodo group of your choice.

To listen to the recordings, hover the mouse over the SPEECH BUBBLES and click on the PLAY button."

Alessandra B. Bassanello's curator insight, February 13, 2013 11:57 AM

We worked once with one of our classes using Pixton, and it really enriched the experience. One of my students started a story and then another one would come and write the next "chapter" and add a new character. It was language oriented (they had to write in Portuguese) and a nice experience for those who love to use technology for a different kind of assignment.

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."


Via Carla Arena
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".

Take a Minute to Collect Your Thoughts with Evernote - ProfHacker [Chronicle of Higher Ed]

Take a Minute to Collect Your Thoughts with Evernote - ProfHacker [Chronicle of Higher Ed] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

During a Q&A after a reading at Duke, Jonathan Safran Foer described his writing process as “more an act of collecting than one of genesis; something created from nothing.” How did I remember that quote? I didn’t, initially, but I did take notes on my iPhone throughout the evening and then emailed them straight to Evernote. When I started writing this post, I ran a search in Evernote for “writing” and “collecting” and bam!—I had my opener!

Finding the best education technology tools is a time-consuming task. It may even be viewed as a chore (for some). Not with this fabulous list, though!

Via Annet Smith
sarspri's insight:

Tools, tools, tools -- so many lists, so little time.  And, it's not enough to find a tool, but rather in knowing how how, when, and why to use it.  

 

Still, everyone who is just embarking on an exploration of what's out there!

 

This set was compiled using yet another tool -- Symbaloo (see image) -- which gives visual access via icons rather than a long text-based list.
