Free Online Karaoke | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

This is a great tool which matches up YouTube music videos to lyrics. Just enter the name of a singer you like then select a song. You'll see the lyrics appear beside the song. Great way to improve your language skills.

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

Technology, by itself, isn't curative. Human agency shapes the path.In light of this dynamic, two critical questions need to be asked and provisionally answered when integrating technology into education. The first question, while obvious at first glance, isn't always fully articulated: "What are the educational goals of technology integration?"

The second question is equally important and often more elusive: "Do the current systems and processes support the integrative and innovative goals?"

Michael Benich's curator insight, January 10, 2013 10:00 AM

One of my favorite teacher / student clickers because it's supported on any device, including the web. I control mine with the iPad and use the laptop cart, so this software works in case you're not 1-1 with iPods or iPads yet.

Arayah's curator insight, March 6, 2013 3:46 PM

Bring your own device and transform student mobile devices for quick data analysis and allow instant feedback to assess learning.

Adam Schulman's curator insight, May 16, 2014 7:24 AM

This is a great tool! Socrative allows teachers to prepare interactive quizzes that can be used in real time.  Once the teacher is prepared to start the quiz, he/she can have them login to the quiz room from their tablets or smart phones.  My favorite style of running the quiz is through the space race, which shows how quickly each student can answer the questions.  The quizzes can either be multiple choice, short answer, and true or false.  The quizzes will also be able to show a clear breakdown of how the students answered the questions.

ESET QR Code Mobile Scavenger Hunt

Red Door utilized the emerging mobile technology of QR (Quick Response) codes to hide clues leading participants down a path of unique ESET experiences. For those without smartphones capable of reading the QR codes, Red Door created an SMS version of the hunt, where clues were unlocked by texting specific keywords to a shortcode.

At the end of the hunt, contestants received a boxed version of ESET's award winning software, and entered to win a Sony VAIO laptop by texting their email address to a shortcode.

The results were awesome! Over 120 people completed the hunt, and at the first clue (the ESET photo booth) a line formed at the start of the hunt that lasted for hours. The scavenger hunt engaged passers by and made them think about the ESET brand.

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome

Engagement is not a goal it's an outcome | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

You often hear people talk about how technology is so “engaging” for kids. But that misses the point. It’s not the technology that’s engaging, it’s the opportunity to use technology to create something that is valued by the community and by yourself. Yes, a new device can be entertaining for a while, but when the novelty value wears off, what are you left with?
