For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now.

Bubbl.us made this list and I think it can be a great educational tool! Mind mapping helps learners to organize information more clearly, and clearly organized content is essential to retaining  information. There are other interesting tools here as well.

This infographic is designed as a comic and explains the ins and outs of using Creative Common images. You might consider using it with students. Originally designed in German this is an English translation by the designer. The infographic designed in German provides an explanation as to how you might read the infographic as a comic, providing short descriptions for each section. You may access the German version at this link: http://www.bildersuche.org/creative-commons-infografik.php and if you use Google translator it will translate the text of the article (but not the infographic).

Dean Mantz's curator insight, July 29, 2013 12:37 AM

As a teacher that strongly believes in visual learning, this is a highly recommended visual to aid in the introduction and understanding of what Creative Commons is and how to use it properly.

This is the third post (in a series of four) by Justin Reich exploring “the future of tablets in education. The first post in this series describes a “Someday/Monday template” stating:

“For technology to make a real difference in student learning, it can’t just be an add-on. On the other hand, teachers need to start somewhere (Monday), and one of the easiest ways for teachers to get experience with emerging tools is to play and experiment in lightweight ways: to use technology as an add-on. Teachers need to imagine a new future—to build towards Someday—and teachers also need new activities and strategies to try out on Monday.” (Quoted from: http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2013/05/the-future-of-tablets-in-education-potential-vs-reality/.)

This third post explores creation, “examining what is possible when we empower students and teachers as innovators with their iPds and other mobile devices.
 Rather than having students use their devices as replacements for netbooks/computers/textbooks allow them to use them to create something new, or using the SAMR model, as tools that provide the ability to redefine, to think. The post shares a number of examples of what is happening in classrooms that have made the shift from Monday to Someday.

This post provides links to the first post, which explores “The Future of Tablets in Education: Potential vs. Reality of Consuming Media” (consumption) and the second which explores “To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation” (curation).

Kimberly House's curator insight, July 28, 2013 6:16 AM

This couldn't ring more true! The first post in this series talks about how teachers need to go through the iPad as an 'add-on' stage. We've found this to be true at our school and there is so much value in recognising this stage as valid. Getting to the stage where teachers and students use the iPad to create and transform learning takes time. Allowing for this time will help ensure an effective iPad programme. We've also realised that having lead teachers across the school there for support and guidance helps teachers considerably as they move through those early phased in their iPad development.
