The 31 Educational Web Tools Every Teacher Should Know about

The 31 Educational Web Tools Every Teacher Should Know about | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Below is a list I have been working on for the last couple of days. This list features some interesting web tools for teachers keen on integrating technology into their instruction and work routine. There are loads of web platforms that are educationally focused and to contain them all in one list is way beyond the scope of a short blog post like this , therefore I selected only what I deemed the most important.

 

Very good list. How many have you tried? -JL

The Internet is firmly here to stay. Computers and the World Wide Web have come a long way since the net first launched in the late sixties. Computers and all their silicon associates have cemented themselves into the modern world. Cell phones, laptops, iPods, iPads, tablets – the list goes on and on.

Preparing a child for the world that doesn’t yet exist is not an easy task for any teacher. Step back and look at that picture from a broad perspective. What are the critical 21st-century skills every learner needs to survive and succeed in our world? What abilities and traits will serve them in a time that’s changing and developing so rapidly?


They want to be challenged and inspired in their learning. They want to collaborate and work with their peers. They want to incorporate the technology they love into their classroom experiences as much as they can. In short, they have just as high a set of expectations of their educators as their educators have of them.


How Are Educators Responding?


The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority, (ACARA), have identified the following as the General Capabilities they see as essential for learners:


Critical and creative thinking


Personal and social capability


Ethical understanding


Intercultural understanding

In technology (and in life!), sometimes you’re the teacher and sometimes you’re the student - and it’s completely normal to always be a bit of both. One day, you help a colleague learn the joys of the copy and paste keyboard shortcut, and the next day you’re learning how to create and edit a YouTube video or a Gabsee 3D animated Avatar!

So, whether you’re teaching or learning, or a bit of both, here are a few practical tips to make it a little easier for the reluctant tech user.  -- Read the Rest!

Should I be upset or disappointed they don't use the graphics I create for the articles I write? Am I too fussy? I have graphic design desires & passionate feels!  I guess I'll just re-post to my blog and use the graphics I created. So there ! LOL

 

Srsly though, it's an honor to write for the organization that has had my back for the last 25 years - if you're a teacher and you're not part of union, you're taking a big chance!
