The 100 Best Twitter Tools For Teachers (2012 Edition) | technologies | Scoop.it

This post, by Edudemic, is really a response to many practitioners who feel Twitter has no role in Teaching & Learning.

 

I have tried a number of these tools and do use some of them. 

 

Tools include those for...

- Managing Twitter;

- Finding 'Friends' (those studying the same course?)

- Sharing (files, photographs, media...)

- Games

- News & Research

- Twitterers (feeds to educational resources etc)

- Groups (Ideal for keeping things organised)

- Organisation & Productivity

 

I'll be returning to some of these for further investigation of their potential - watch this space OR twitter :-)

Scan Documents On Your Phone With CamScanner [Android & iPhone]

Scan Documents On Your Phone With CamScanner [Android & iPhone] | technologies | Scoop.it
When it comes to smartphones, many of us want to be able to use them to do all manner of useful home office tasks just to make our lives easier. So it's a phone, a camera, a handy email client, social networking centre and all the rest.

 

CamScanner is an application, available on Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile and Blackberry, designed to make high quality document scanning easy for users using their smartphone.

 

CamScanner is quite sophisticated, it is easy to scan multiple pages into one document and/or to auto-crop an image to exactly what a user wants to keep/share/save.

 

I've added the free version to my work iPhone to test the ad-supported, limited version; give it a go and see what you think!

 

I would think it is an ideal application for WBL Assessors.
