The 7 Best Search Engines for Finding Free Images

The 7 Best Search Engines for Finding Free Images | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Free image search engines

The advantage of these search engines for free images is that they (in theory) search multiple sites with free images at once. However, in practice some of these search engines search just a bunch of sites, not dozens of them. Anyway, it's more than nothing but if you hope these image search engines are a blessing, you'd better get realistic.

This means that  learning online will open up the skype network.  People will  see each other and exchange views in real time. Learning materials can be easily downloaded.  If people from all parts of the country and world are able interact surely this will lead to less prejudice and stereotyping and an understanding of each other as human beings.

Interesting listing of MOOC-related articles from current sources.  There seem to be some interesting ideas floating around addressing the luke-warm presentation of MOOC courses.  Maybe getting the socialization piece nailed down will help MOOCs to become a better-accepted piece of distance education and professional development.

It is important for educators to be very strategic concerning classroom design.  I reiterate this point to K-12 teachers often.  Remember, you're developing a learning environment that is inclusive of all students and is designed to engage all students.

This article is one that has a personal flare for me. In using my YouTube channel to share screencasts and student projects, there are times I need to make adjustments to uploads. In addition, I like to  share video editing tools with my students.  Thus, this tool feature is one deserving of being integrated into projects.

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :)

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :) | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Hello, folks :)


Since ClassDojo’s beginnings, millions of teachers have signed up to use ClassDojo in their classrooms. Over time, we’ve been excited to hear those teachers spread it to other teachers in their schools and grade-levels - creating entire ‘ClassDojo schools’ where every teacher uses ClassDojo, or whole grade-level teams using ClassDojo to help students develop the behaviors and skills they need for success.


Today, we’re thrilled to announce two features that make using ClassDojo across an entire grade-level or school - or even with just a few other teachers - a lot easier! Now, for the first time, you’ll be able to connect with other teachers in your school to teach classes together, share student rosters, and track your students’ progress across all their different classes. These features have been the most popular requests from teachers everywhere over the last few years - we hope you like them :) 


There are two ways to work together with other ClassDojo teachers, Shared Students and Shared Classes:





With Shared Students, teachers can connect with each other and share individual students to fill each other’s classes. Setting up your classes will be faster by pulling from the school roster, and you can also view students’ reports from their other teachers’ classes.




With Shared Classes, you and your colleagues can teach the same class, awarding feedback points in each others’ classes, and instantly messaging parents! This feature is great for teaching assistants and also classes that move together during the school day.



Read more details on the ClassDojo Community Forum!


We’ve been hard at work building these features to help you use ClassDojo across your whole school or grade level - and this is just the first step! We hope you love what we’re launching today, and we’d love your feedback - let us know what you think in the comments below, or by emailing us at hello@classdojo.com :)

Class Dojo is a useful application to track attendance and generate behavioral awards.  It also generates reports that can be shared with parents.  While Class Dojo is a great idea, there may be FERPA concerns with sharing the information with other classrooms.

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic

The You Want to Know About Copyright in Education Infographic | Lund's K-12 Technology Integration | Scoop.it

As I’ve mentioned before—it is not only important for educators to encourage students to push the technological envelope, but it’s equally essential that we teach them to navigate the digital world in a responsible manner. But in order to do so, we must first become familiar with copyright rules and fair use guidelines ourselves—a task that can seem very daunting and frustrating at times.

 

If you’ve ever used online materials for teaching and learning, then I’m sure you have wondered one or more of the following: Do I need permission to use this image? Can I share this video on my classroom web site? Would it be best for my me and/or my students to create my/their own media?

 

Well, it may not answer all of your burning questions, but the copyright flowchart shown below will surely help with some of the confusion surrounding this very relevant and significant topic.
