The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Blogs in Teaching

The Ultimate Guide to The Use of Blogs in Teaching | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

The tremendous ease of use of a blog has made it a web tool of great potential in education. From 2005 up to this moment, thousands of educational blogs have seen the light and educators from all around the globe have been experiencing with this medium in their teaching.In this regard, I deemed it important to pause for a while and create an easy and simple guide to remind you ( in case you are an experienced blogger ) and walk the new teachers ( excited about how to use blogs in their classroom ) through the different procedures and pedagogical implications behind the use of blogs in education. I am very much hoping that this guide is not like any other guide you would find online but a real summary and fruitful addition to the load of information written on this topic.

8 Free and simple tools to create video tutorials for Teachers | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

One of the important digital skills that the 21st century teachers should have is the ability to create video tutorials to share with students.I know some of you might freak out when it comes to putting your digital skills to the test thinking that you could never make it. I understand it because I know that the first thing that comes into your mind on hearing video tutorials are those sophisticated and pompous tutorials you see on Youtube from imedia companies and advertising corporations. Well, the kind of software used to create such tutorials cost a lot of money and requires specialits to work on them.

The Top Tab Management Extensions for Teachers ( Only Chrome )

The Top Tab Management Extensions for Teachers ( Only Chrome ) | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Multitasking, although scientifically proved to reduce our powers of concentration, is one of the features we have acquired from our daily use of digital media. I am personally struggling hard with it; sometimes I would be reading an article and in the midst of my reading I would check my emails, my twitter, my RSS feed and when I get back to the article I was reading I would discover that it took me almost an hour or more to do all of that. Multitasking is a serious problem and unless you become aware of it you will never fight it off.

Free Cloud Storage Tools for Teachers

Free Cloud Storage Tools for Teachers | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

After posting Free tools for Teachers to Go Paperless, I got a couple of emails from some educators asking for some free cloud storage tools. Below is a list of some of the best free cloud storage tools that I deem as very important from an educational perspective. Just keep in mind that when I say free it does not necessarily mean that service is free in its entirety but that it might offer plans like a free basic plan with a limited storage and other pro ones with more storage capacity. For us in education, the free plan is generously enough and can allow you to store thousands of docs and data.

Free Tools to Go Paperless for Teachers

Free Tools to Go Paperless for Teachers | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Have you ever thought of going to school paperless ? Well if you have not, then you need to consider it. I know people still have that standard image of the teacher in that white apron with a desk full of papers and binders. We do not need to have all that load of papers around us to be effective, technology has several easy ways to facilitate your life and make it way easier and more enjoyable. Let me share with you here an example that I personally experienced. Some years ago I used to have problems in the aeroports because of the weight of my luggage. Every year that I go back home to see my parents I would pay for extra weight because my suitcase would be full of books. I hated it because some of the books I could not do without them and so could not leave them behind especially when I would be away for longer periods of time. Now thanks to mobile technology, my Kindle has loads of books that I take wherever I go without worrying about weight issues.
