44 Diverse Tools To Publish Student Work - TeachThought @TonyVincent

44 Diverse Tools To Publish Student Work - TeachThought @TonyVincent | schoolapps | Scoop.it
Educators are often admonished to design work that “leaves the classroom.”

This is partly a push for authenticity. Work that is “real world” will naturally be more engaging to students because it has more chance to have credibility in their eyes, and usefulness in their daily lives. This kind of work has value beyond the current grading period and culminating report card.

But work that is made public has other benefits as well. If someone besides the teacher is actually going to read it, students may be more willing to engage their hearts and minds in their work. This kind of work is also often iterative–done in stages, with drafts, revisions, collaboration, and rethinking. It’s design work, and as design work, it gives students a chance to show what they know. This is one of the gifts of digital and social media, and an idea we’ve approached before with 7 Creative Apps That Allow Students To Show What They Know.

Tony Vincent from learninginhand.com revisited that idea with the following graphic that clarifies another talent of education technology–shared thinking.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | schoolapps | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic

10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic | schoolapps | Scoop.it
Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators.

"Two days ago, a primary school principle emailed me asking for iPad app suggestions for primary students.As I was looking into my archive for previous lists I shared here I somehow stumbled upon this wonderful Symbaloo board created by Matt Gomez. This board contains almost all of the best iPad apps to use with elementary students. Needless to say that Gomez is also one of my trusted sources in Edtech and he has a great blog where he shares tips, tools, and apps to help teachers better integrate technology in their instruction"

While I try my best to keep up with this stuff, these two darn committees just filled my summer with new explorations.

 

I take that back.  They’ve actually significantly narrowed the field by pointing to the learning tools most worthy of exploring and integrating next school year, along with standards alignment and tips for use."

We are excited to announce that App Ed Review is undergoing some big changes!

We are transitioning from being an app review website into a comprehensive support network for teachers who are or who want to use apps with their students. As part of that network, our high-quality reviews will still be available, but with even more! For example, we are creating our own app! That’s right, we are putting the web-based App Ed Review that you know and use into app form so our reviews can be easily accessed from tablet devices! Plus, we will be releasing The App Teacher, an e-publication that will keep teachers abreast of need-to-know happenings in the field of educational apps.
