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

5 Ways to Accelerate your Digital Curriculum - Brilliant or Insane | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

If you have computers in your classroom, periodically use laptops or tablets or, better still, teach in a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environment, you have a digital curriculum.
