The Truth About Tablets: Educators are getting iPads and ereaders into students’ hands—but it’s not easy — The Digital Shift

The Truth About Tablets: Educators are getting iPads and ereaders into students’ hands—but it’s not easy — The Digital Shift | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

"Talk about a revolution. Since Amazon unveiled the first Kindle in 2007, digital devices have dramatically changed the way kids read and even think about books. But it’s less clear how ereaders and tablets will affect libraries and schools. As any librarian who’s dealt with ebook adoption can quickly tell you, “It’s complicated.”"

Using Google Docs to Check In On Students' Reading - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Using Google Docs to Check In On Students' Reading - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

"With nightly reading assignments that take three to four hours, I expect students to fall behind. So I wasn’t surprised when, a few days in, I asked if everyone had done all the reading and the majority of the class avoided looking at me. Such are the occupational hazards of teaching."

Brian Croxall offers some strategies for encouraging and tracking student reading so that class discussions can thrive. His use of Google docs is worthwhile sharing.

The 10 Best Productivity Apps of 2011 | Tech in Education | Scoop.it
This has been a hectic year for nearly everyone I know. Thankfully, technology is one of the best ways to manage an over-active schedule. 2011 has also been a very busy year for app developers, and we’ve seen them churn out productivity apps right and left.But out of all the apps we’ve come across, only 10 shine as the most practical and enjoyable to use, all of which are examples of beautiful design and precise attention to detail. Some of these apps have been growing and improving since 2010, while others are completely brand new this year.

Here’s TNW’s list of the 10 best productivity apps of 2011:

Evernote, Dropbox, Sparrow, TeuxDeux, Instapaper, Pulse, Alfred, CloudApp, Fantastical, iDonethis

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

"I’ve come to describe my shifted classroom as an inquiry-driven, project-based, tech-embedded environment. But that’s not where I started. For most of my teaching career, I’ve been a pretty traditional teacher (even now I slip back into that mode sometimes).....

My shift to a student-centred classroom has been a roller coaster ride, but well worth the work and effort. For the most part, my students are engaged and have started to take responsibility for their education. We view knowledge as a process, not a product. I think the most valuable skill my students have acquired is the ability to learn, unlearn, and re-learn. Given today’s constantly changing world, this is one of the most important things they’ll take with them when they graduate.

Teachers who are interested in shifting their classrooms often don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming, frightening, and even discouraging, especially when no one else around you seems to think the system is broken. The question I’ve been asked often throughout the past year is “Where should a teacher begin?” I’ve reflected on this a fair amount, and I think small strategic steps are the key...."
