Keisha Lewis's insight:

This is something that can definitely be used locally. Digital school magazines, alternative approach to presentations and integration with the class website comes to mind. Hey, even a digital portfolio! :)

This is another FREE tool that can be used to help students sum up the information they learned into a neat little package.  It seems to be relatively easy to use and creates a wonderful product.  Let us know if you want to create a lesson around this type of product and we will be happy to help you!

MinecraftEdu Takes Hold in Schools

MinecraftEdu Takes Hold in Schools | Locally useful EduTech | Scoop.it

Minecraft’s education options are as vast as the game itself. Don’t worry if you feel limited by time or your own imagination. Thousands of others are imaging worlds, too—and are willing to share.

This Flipped Class Is Studying Biology with a $10 Microscope and a Smart Phone -- Campus Technology

This Flipped Class Is Studying Biology with a $10 Microscope and a Smart Phone -- Campus Technology | Locally useful EduTech | Scoop.it
Take a smartphone, add $10 worth of plywood and Plexiglas, a bit of hardware, laser pointer lenses and LED click lights from a keychain flashlight and you have a DIY microscope worthy of use in college classes. At least, that's the idea of an instructor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology who is adding the do-it-yourself technology in her biology lab courses.
Keisha Lewis's insight:

I'm particularly psyched about this, since it is something that students at my school (almost exclusively boys) would take to. Possibly have it done during Science Club meetings and donate to the school's lab. It can also be a solution to the limited quantity of microscopes that we do have.

Why choose Google Drive's Presentation app over Power Point?  No reason, unless you are collaborating on a presentation.  Since more students are working on projects electronically and from different locations, this could be a great tool.
