What Happens on iPads Stays on iPads

What Happens on iPads Stays on iPads | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

A big issue with school mobile devices is that they are often shared, and don’t have full profile accounts like a computer does. This means that any user has access to any app or information from any other user. Here's a great little poster that talks about some of the basic things students should consider when using shared mobile devices to keep themselves safe and to respect others they are working with.

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

Pinterest has taken off in the past few months. According to a Shareholic study, it exceeds reddit, Google+, Linkedin, and YouTube as a referral source. It may seem as though everyone you know is Pinning something to the online bulletin boards to share their favorite articles, collections, and items available online.

 

This is a great social networking tool that you can use for educational purposes, whether you are a teacher or a student.

 

This tool can make it possible to create boards for specific projects and to collect and share lesson resources.

 

Be sure to see the education page!

A List of Free audio books for kids

A List of Free audio books for kids | Muskegon Public Schools Tech News | Scoop.it

Audio story books are a great means of improving learners reading and listening skills. There are several website resources now offer free audio materials but not all of them are free. To look for quality audio books that are free can take you a lot of time and energy.

 

In this regard and in an attempt to make it easy for educators visiting Educational Technology and Mobile Learning to get a free access to the materials I have been reviewing here about the best websites you can browse for free audio books, I have compiled a list of links in a presentation that you can download and share with your students.
