An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
n case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena. Any one who knows me will tell you that I am not one for using tech for tech’s sake, despite my evangelist moniker. Use of technology in a cross curricular sense should be measured and done with consideration for the best potential learning outcomes.

With all that said, I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I thought it time that I shared some of the Apps that have stuck by me or have struck me for their ease of use and impact upon learning in the classroom.

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

Do you use Google Drive to manage your digital life? Most of us do. In fact, many online students use it to submit homework and projects to their online school. So, when it comes to online learning, Google Drive and it’s myriad of features are a must-try suite of tools for you.

It’s not easy to truly become an expert-level user of Google Drive, though. There are a ton of keyboard shortcuts and features that are tough to master. These little-known features and shortcuts are actually going to save you a boatload of time, though.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Twitter for Educators Beginner's Guide ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe in the educational value of Twitter as a tool to help us improve our teaching practices and enrich our learning journey. I have devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning to Twitter in Education. A lot of you have been regularly  following and reading this section  and I am so glad to hear that some of you have their Tweeting experience tremendously improved since they started reading those posts.Feedback such as this  does really make me happy  and encourage me to work harder because at the end of the day what remains is that beautiful feeling one feels knowing that he/she has helped somebody out.

That being said, let me now share with you one of the best guides on the use of Twitter in education. This short guide (  made up of  just 11 neat and well compacted pages ) will walk you step by step through the process of mastering the art of Tweeting. I am pretty sure you will enjoy reading it, and before sharing it with you let me just express my deep gratitude for Amber Coggin for this great work."

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech?

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech? | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it

By Katrina Schwartz |

 

With a new generation of teachers coming into the work force, there’s a discrepancy between what principals expect of teachers-in-training and what they’re actually learning in school.

A new Project Tomorrow report surveying principals concluded that they want to hire new teachers with creative ideas about how technology can be leveraged to create authentic and differentiated learning experiences. But student-teachers report that their tech training focuses only on simple management tools. At the same time, the report concludes that those who have the biggest influence on new teachers — veteran educators —  don’t always embrace new ways of using technology to engage students.

We need reflect on how ed tech shifts our pedagogical practices. Minimum is individualized learning.

 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 18, 2014 7:17 AM

I think most future teachers are ill-equipped to use technology effectively primarily because they don't have the resources nor the opportunity to learn how to use technology--"innovative" or otherwise--in their own learning.


"Principals want new teachers to know how to use technology to create authentic learning experiences for students (75 percent) and how to leverage technology to differentiate instruction (68 percent) before they apply for a position at their school." It doesn't help that many principals might think they know what these terms and phrases mean but they might know really know the implications for making sure teachers have the best possible skills and the best possible resources.

QR (Quick Response) codes can make classrooms more efficient and interactive. Instead of typing in a web address, a student can open an app and point his or her device’s camera at the code and walk away with a website, audio, or video open in his or her web browser. QR codes store information in an image made up of tiny squares, and anyone can create them.
