"While reality can be scary, there are plenty of safe sites designed for kids under 13. Still, all the kid-friendly social networking sites in the world won’t help if kids find the adult versions more fun. We researched kid-friendly sites and then talked to kids to get a feel for the fun factor to collect four kid-approved sites."

In September 2011, they rolled out Celly, a text-messaging service that teachers and students can use to make classwork more fun and engaging.

 

Celly is part of a larger national trend in schools known as “Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT),” in which students are allowed to bring their mobile devices to class. Advocates argue that if young people are already glued to them, then teachers and principals should come up with educational uses for them...Feel free to add your own opinion to this debate!

carldowse's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:11 AM

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.

Anne-Mart Olsen's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:12 AM

I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.

Angel Bolton's curator insight, March 12, 2015 8:53 AM

Easy way to connect with students.

iPad App Evaluation for the Classroom

The app development market is exploding. More and more companies are creating “educational apps”. In some cases, they are simply digital versions of a book or a web based tool. Some seem to have “no educational value” to it at all, but are still sold under the label of “education”. These apps need to be evaluated.
