Really interesting platform with lots of potential for classroom use.

John Dalziel's curator insight, April 19, 2013 8:57 AM

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a relatively new resource and only some of the artifacts, from museums and libraries across the United States, are arranged into exhibits at this point.
Practitioners and/or Learners can look for artifacts by...
- location,
- time, or
- keyword search.
Clicking on any artifact will open information about where it is housed and when it was created.

Great examples of how students can share information with technology.

KB...Konnected's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:04 PM

Great way to find Glogs you can use in the classroom. Glogs are interactive posters that are a fun way for students to present what they are learning.

Bloomin' Apps

Bloomin' Apps | Shiny Objects | Scoop.it

Kathy was one of the first teachers who offered internet based assistance to teachers.  She has always been at the head of the edtech pack and this latest rendition of her work is her usual high quality interpretation of how students learn.

She states: However, I was recently reflecting (again) on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize.  Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory.

Here is my first draft of the idea of the "interlocking of the cognitive processes".

Why Should Techies Care About Education Theory? | Shiny Objects | Scoop.it

It's so easy to stay in our separate research silos, but if we're going to change current learning paradigms, then we need true interdisciplinary cooperation and experts in other fields who understand how people learn.

Access All Your Computer Files from your iPhone/iPad/Android with Polkast

This seems very promising! I fear Dropbox crashes (even though I back up regularly).

 

Polkast is a free iOS and Android app which allows you to connect directly to your remote computer and instantly access all your files, videos, photos and music you have on it.

 

Polkast does not use any "cloud storage" type of solution to achieve this, but simply connects your mobile device or Windows 7 PC to your selected "home/work" Mac/PC, and then gives you direct access to all of your files through an organized system.

 

The app is free to download and use.
