15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers - Edudemic | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

Learning and Teaching with iPads: iPad Music Class Trial for Garageband

Learning and Teaching with iPads: iPad Music Class Trial for Garageband | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"Earlier this year I was invited to do a short 2-hour class on GarageBand on the iPad at Caroline Chisholm Day, 2012, Chisholm Primary Bligh Park. The class consisted of primary school students from year 3 to 6. I had never done anything like this before so I was keen to see how I could engage students in experimenting and learning about musical instruments and musical concepts using Garage Band on the iPad."

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it
"The term “new normal” is the lingo used to describe drastic change in doing something or life after a major event. The change is usually quick and immediate. It alters one’s approach to something or way of life. In the educational world a slower transition is happening that will create a new normal. That change agent is social media. Social media has been around for some time but its practical use is relatively new to educators. As I engage more and more educators in the use of social media for educational purposes I hear a lot of the same questions. Here are some of the most common questions with my responses."
