TeachersFirst Edge

TeachersFirst Edge | Literacy Using Web 2.0 | Scoop.it
TeachersFirst Edge shares teacher reviews of today's web tools and how to use them safely and within school policies as tools for teaching and learning. Web 2.0 tools can be powerful learning tools for today's techno-savvy students and their more adventurous teachers. These tools appear (and frequently disappear) very quickly, launched by creative techno-geeks out there in the world. Many of these tools require a higher-than-average set of teacher tech skills or some extra monitoring to assure student 'safety.' TeachersFirst Edge reviews these tools on the Edge, carefully and with specific ideas for using them safely and effectively in teaching and learning. Reviews point out any safety or policy concerns for the tool and offer links to management tips for each concern. This is the world your students already know. Try teaching in their vernacular. A little adventurousness makes for powerful learning.
