29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching Online | Scoop.it

Fostering creative thinking inside our classrooms is one of the essential goals of our teaching. Ask any teacher today about what they want their students to develop and creativity will definitely be featured in their answers. Creativity is also a process that follows a thinking path, one that is inquisitive and noisy.  Saying that it is a process implies that it is learnable but it is not learned in the same rigorous way other thinking skills are learned.

12 Ways To Share Almost Any File With Your Students - te@chthought

12 Ways To Share Almost Any File With Your Students - te@chthought | Teaching Online | Scoop.it

"As a 21st century teacher, you probably need to share stuff, and have stuff shared with. “Stuff” like pdfs, various word processing documents, video files, and other digital fare. The traditional way to do this has been email, but limits here–including speed, file size, and the relative clunkiness of sharing with large groups–make sharing files through email less than “best practice.”

 

We started to create a chart that listed the nuance details of each platform, from storage and sharing limits, FTPing ability, the need to sign up to use, and password-protecting to flexible expiration dates for rights to files–but then we found that Wikipedia had already done this (and then some). So we instead picked our favorite dozen, and then ranked them in terms of their flexibility and integration that education technology demands.

 

Though most of the tools below can share most files (mp3s, .movs, .mp4s, exe, .zip, .doc and .docx files, .pdfs, etc.), we focused more on documents, images, folders and software integration than incredibly detailed features that may make it overkill for your classrooms."

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad - TeachThought

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad - TeachThought | Teaching Online | Scoop.it

"Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers."

This is a really good list. I haven't come across x-mirage before and look forward to trying it out. Another great mirroring device, is Splashtop that allows you to mirror your Mac on your iPad and control it remotely.

Blended Learning (BL) is a way to engage learners through a mix of interfaces that addresses diverse learning preferences and styles.  This mix will help the learners to choose what works for them, while allowing the presenter to choose the medium that works best for the content.  


Kristen demonstrates BL is not a collection of material compiled using a set of cool tools, rather for BL to work; it should be a “product” of a carefully planned process.  The 5 best practices is a good foundation for educators.

 

Thank you Kristen!
