An inexpensive app that can actually turn an iPhone and IPad into a scanner. You simply take a picture of a document with your device and the app uses Optical Character Recognition to create an editable text file.

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom

Instant Opinion Polls in the Classroom | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

For a long time now I have been looking for a tool that enables instant polling in the classroom or in the lecture room. I specifically wanted something that; doesn't require registration (especially from the people I'm polling), updates very quickly, works on any platform from computers to mobile devices

It looks like I have finally found what I've been looking for and best of all it's free. The tool that I have found is Mentimeter and it does all of the above.

Samantha's curator insight, September 11, 2:31 PM

This article talks about what microphones are best to use when recording with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. The list was put together by Jeff Geerling with the goal of helping people just beginning with audio. This article is very informative and it splits up into categories. Some of the categories are recording for concerts, interviews, and if you need a mobile microphone. The article include a video testing the audio of all the mice listed as well as where to purchase the mic and how much it costs. Overall this was a very informative and creditable article.

How to Devise Passwords That Drive Hackers Away | NY Times

How to Devise Passwords That Drive Hackers Away | NY Times | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

By Nicole Perlroth

 

"It is absurdly easy to get hacked. All it takes is clicking on one malicious link or attachment. Companies’ computer systems are attacked every day by hackers looking for passwords to sell on auctionlike black market sites where a single password can fetch $20. Hackers regularly exploit tools like John the Ripper, a free password-cracking program that use lists of commonly used passwords from breached sites and can test millions of passwords per second.

 

"Chances are, most people will get hacked at some point in their lifetime. The best they can do is delay the inevitable by avoiding suspicious links, even from friends, and manage their passwords. Unfortunately, good password hygiene is like flossing — you know it’s important, but it takes effort. How do you possibly come up with different, hard-to-crack passwords for every single news, social network, e-commerce, banking, corporate and e-mail account and still remember them all?"

Pearson Project Will Let Professors Mix Free and Paid Content in E-Textbooks - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Pearson Project Will Let Professors Mix Free and Paid Content in E-Textbooks - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

"Pearson, a major textbook publisher, continued its push into digital education on Monday by introducing a service that allows instructors to create e-textbooks using open-access content and Pearson material.

A beta version called Project Blue Sky will begin in the spring with the help of Gooru, a nonprofit search engine. When an instructor enters keywords for the subject he or she is teaching, the system sends back a list of Pearson content, free educational content, and material from other commercial providers."

 

 

Most interesting about this article is the comments section below the article

A sample:


"This looks like an attempt to contain the urge that many of us feel to try DIY eTextbook making as a way to address the high, inelastic pricing of textbooks, digital and otherwise." Frank Lowney

 

"Aptly named, "Project Blue Sky", because nobody will ever use it; Pearson reps won't sell it; and, yet another cynical use of "open" by certain publishers (like OpenClass, which lies dormant) to make it look as if Pearson is helping students save money..What Project Blue Sky is probably going after is part of the grant money that will ooze out of places like California's recent decision to include for-profit bidders on funds" rwejd

 

"I just have two questions. Will the e-books be accessible to students with disabilities? Will the Pearson content be accessible? If My___Labs are any indicator, they probably won't be. " karen_sorensen
