Personal Knowledge Management would be a good Social Media topic for the Learning Commons. We would have to find a more eyecatching name but this is something that I think would attract undergrad students.

This is a nice simple browser based whiteboard app that runs in the browser on most devices. Would be nice to have a few more features, such as import images etc, but there is also a lot to be said for simplicity.

I am trying this too. We'll see. There is also a teacher sign-up for limited sharing with and among students etc. I just want a whiteboard that I can easily access without making plans to leave my classroom to go to where the, difficult to navigate and use, whiteboard is.

Dit zou grote schooltassen schelen, maar als ik naar mijn eigen e-reaer kijk... Waar blijven de mooie plaatjes en de glanzende nieuwe blaadjes aan het begin van het nieuwe schooljaar? Die nieuwe boeken waaruit blijkt dat je weer aan het begin staat van een nieuw avontuur, waarin je vooraan kan lezen wie voor jou het boek heeft gebruikt en je kunt voorstellen dat velen voor jou dit boek hebben doorgeworsteld. Ik weet niet of dit mijn onverdeelde voorkeur heeft, maar het is zeker een stap in de richting van modernisering.

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Library Technology | Scoop.it

 

"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too.

For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them  compiled and organized all in one page."
