9 Creative Storytelling Tools That Will Make You Wish You Were A Student Again

9 Creative Storytelling Tools That Will Make You Wish You Were A Student Again | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

T.H.E. Journal asked educators for the most creative storytelling apps available, and we did a little digging on our own, too.

Stop saying technology is causing social isolation

Stop saying technology is causing social isolation - Digital Culturist - Medium

Social media, and smartphones for that matter, only contributes to make our social experiences richer by connecting us with people in new ways. I’m sure many of you have met lots of interesting people. I sure have. Thanks to social media, I’ve been able to meet people that are now close friends of mine. And when I’m out, I like to open Twitter and check how they are, what they are doing, if I have something to say that may interest them. Heck, I even met my girlfriend on Twitter years ago.

Technology's Impact on Learning Outcomes: Can It Be Measured?

Technology's Impact on Learning Outcomes: Can It Be Measured? | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

In order for us to be able to evaluate whether technology use improves student learning outcomes, my sense is that we as educators must redefine those outcomes and the methods with which they will be measured. Additionally, if teachers were better equipped to use technology, not only would students have a more consistent experience from class to class, but we could actually begin to see what effects the technology is having on student learning through more disciplines and over longer periods of time

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Create a Twitter Poll

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Create a Twitter Poll | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Over the last week Twitter has been rolling out a new polling feature to its users. The new polling option allows you to post a Tweet that contains a short poll question. Using a poll is different than just asking people to reply to a question that you Tweet. When you post a poll people don't have to reply to you with an "@" reply. Instead of sending a written reply people just choose from one of your response choices. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how the new polling feature works.
