Wide reading is important when assessing technology in the classroom.  Add this to your reading list.

Mike Dilger's curator insight, March 24, 2014 7:41 AM

You need to read widely as to what is happening in the world of teaching and tablets.

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’ | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"It’s difficult to keep students engaged — and awake — when assigning them readings from long and often dull textbooks. Two researchers wanted to change that.

 

Their creation is zyBooks, a web-based platform that mixes learning activities such as question sets and animations with some written content, largely as a replacement for text. The idea is that professors can use zyBooks instead of traditional textbooks in order to help students engage with the material and perform better."

Learn to Code: Do it For the Kids

Learn to Code: Do it For the Kids | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"There is a shortage of people who know how to program. These are high quality, high paying jobs. How do we encourage students to learn how to code? Learning to programming not only is a skill that is in high demand, it is also incredibly useful. We have all wished we had an app or a program that would do a particular thing that is specific to ourselves. I know some HTML and some JavaScript and Google Apps Script and it is amazing what you can do with just a little knowledge"

It looks like they are only offering limited numbers of teachers at this stage. I also subscribed, but when I return to the website it's just the same invitation page. Perhaps Nik Peachey can clarify.
Carol Bently's curator insight, July 27, 2:23 AM

Great tool for TEACHERS!

I got a response to my email. I now have a new web address to use to use the site. I suggest you email also so the TeacherBox people know about your interest.

Rise of the Teacherpreneur

Rise of the Teacherpreneur | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"You’ve heard the term “entrepreneur.” You’ve probably even heard the term “edupreneur.” But do you know what the term “teacherpreneur” means? As you can probably intuit, “teacherpreneurs” are teachers who create their own educational product or service to fix a problem they or they colleagues have encountered in the classroom. This is distinct from an edupreneur, which can be interpreted to mean any entrepreneur working in the education space – teacher or not."
