The Best 10 Free Word Cloud Tools for Teachers

The Best 10 Free Word Cloud Tools for Teachers | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Word clouds tools have a great importance in education. Many teachers use them to perform several learning activities for their students. Generally speaking, a word cloud is a graphical representation of word frequency. It basically features the prominent words that are so often cited in a piece of text. I have already reviewed some popular word cloud generators here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning but have not really gone into details as to how teachers can use them in education. This post, however, compensates for that shortage of information and provides you with a set of tips together with a list of free tools to help you discover and learn more about the educational uses of word clouds generators.

ouTube is undoubtedly the top video website online. The stats I have recently read are really amazing; 60 hours of video are uploaded every minute with over 3 billion pageviews per day. It also has thousands of channels ranging from technology to Laugh and Gags. Given the important of YouTube as a primary source of video content, Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has dedicated a whole section to reviewing educational tools and tips teachers and students can use to maximize their benefit from YouTube. In this regard, I have selected some of the popular tools I have already reviewed here and compiled them in a list that is handy for any teacher or educator to check whenever time permits.

Considering Using Technology In Education? Read This First. | Edudemic | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Back in February, a local Swedish newspaper reported that the Stockholm suburb of Sollentuna planned to transition entirely away from textbooks to tablet PCs by 2013.

It seems like iPad is gaining more and more space here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. As I said before, iPad is one of the most used tablets in education and many teachers prefer it over other devices. Apple's sense of reliability and perfection might be behind this but what is equally important is to get to know the right tools to use on it to promote learning and teaching.

The History 2.0 Classroom: Social Reading on the iPad: Subtext X Custom ePub

The History 2.0 Classroom: Social Reading on the iPad: Subtext X Custom ePub | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

While there will never be a replacement for a paper book with dog-eared pages, hand written notes in the margins, a broken spine and a proudly worn cover with a hint of dirt and stains, there is an exciting new option to transform the practice of reading to make it more social and collaborative. Subtext is an intriguing iPad application that allows users to read books collaboratively. While reading, participants can insert text, emotions, questions, links and thoughts into the margins of the book. When other readers jump into the text they can see the notations and reply to the existing thoughts in a discussion thread that is neatly tucked away into the margins of the text.

Top 15 iPad Book Apps – Most Exceptional Use of Animation | The Digital Media Diet | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Over a year ago, we began sharing our very favorite book apps from our growing collection of reviews in specialized “Top 10″ lists. This year, we are able to create each of these new lists with a much larger selection of apps to choose from … nearly 600 reviews are in our database (and in my head as the sole reviewer for our site), letting us create really specialized lists for each of the star categories that help us rate story apps. In the course of running our site, Digital-Storytime.com, I have also previewed more than 2000+ book apps for iPad, which means a lot of the content available to our readers has been considered for these special recommended reading lists.
