This looks like a great tool for many subjects. While still in beta, it will be able to create a map based, timeline based story to which you can also add videos and links. It certainly looks valuable.

CSI: THE EXPERIENCE — Web Adventures | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

great, educational activities for middle school and high school science students. The CSI Web Adventures are also useful for teaching a research and investigation process that can be useful in almost any content area in which students complete research assignments. The CSI Web Adventures teach students to pay attention to details and examine all of the available evidence before reaching a conclusion.

Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt

Ten Tools for Your Pinterest Toolbelt | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Pinterest is a great social networking site, but it is definitely still young and lacking in some features.

 

...If you’d like the Pinterest experience but with more features, you can either use an entirely different Pinterest alternative, or you can try using one of these Pinterest-based tools.


This collection has a huge variety of tools, including ways to explore, discover, analyze and more. There are even a few browser plug-ins to really make your Pinterest experience worthwhile. These tools definitely give Pinterest a whole new layer of functionality and you’re sure to find at least one you don’t know how you ever pinned without. Read on to learn about 10 of my favorite Pinterest tools....

Play online, learn online and feed the hungry | Freerice.com

Play online, learn online and feed the hungry | Freerice.com | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

For every correct answer you choose, 10 grains of rice are raised to help end world hunger through the United Nations World Food Programme.

 

The site slogan is "Not your average online trivia game", which is true because this is both an online learning tool and a powerful tool to raise meals for the world's hungry.

 

It's free to use, and players can choose from a range of subjects: English vocab or grammar, other languages such as Spanish, Italian, German and French, Human Antomy, Geography subjects, Math, Famous Paintings, and much more.

 

If you get an answer wrong, it gets repeated later to help you learn. You can login and track your totals by rice, join and create groups, and share all of this learning on your social media profiles.

 

For every correct answer, 10 grains are raised and paid for by a sponsored advert that displays below the answer. It's a simple but highly effective tool. With over 1.3 million registered players, the site has raised enough to feed over 5million people... so far.

 

The more people who play Freerice, the more we can achieve. So it would be great if you could share this as an effective edu-tool!

 

And it doesn't cost the player a cent, which means the average person who may not be able to donate, can take an active role in being part of the solution.

 

Food for thought, and thought for food...

Flat Classroom Projects-A Global Educational Collaborative

Flat Classroom Projects-A Global Educational Collaborative | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

The Flat Classroom® Project is a global collaborative project that joins together middle and high school students (typically grade 9-12, 14-18 years old).Co-founded in 2006 by Vicki Davis (Westwood Schools, USA) and Julie Lindsay (now in Beijing, China) in 2006, this project uses Web 2.0 tools to support communication and interaction as well as collaboration and creation between students and teachers from classrooms around the world. One of the main goals of the project is to 'flatten' or lower the classroom walls so that instead of each class working isolated and alone, 2 or more classes are joined virtually to become one large classroom.

Official Google Blog: Introducing the Knowledge Graph: things, not strings | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Google search has just gotten a lot smarter. You can use their new Knowledge Graph to search for things in much more intuitive ways. Rather than using strings, it searchs for things. It does this by analysing previous searches, searches others have made, and by using the collective intelligence of the web.
