"In our society, we seem to worship talent — and we often portray it as a gift. Now we can see that this is not motivating to our students."

When students learn to breathe they open a door to self-knowledge.  Imagine learning in middle school that you can grow your brain and maximise your potential? Brainology is a science based approach that works.

10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs - Edudemic | Technology | Scoop.it
Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators.

The power of digital student portfolios

The power of digital student portfolios | Technology | Scoop.it

With the spreading use of computers and mobile technology in schools, going digital with student portfolios has become more popular. Simply put, digital portfolios are online collections of student work. They allow us to archive, curate and analyze samples of student learning from both the past and the present and keep that data — literally — at the tip of our finger.

Slingshot - Share Your iOS/MAC Screen with Anyone Around the World! - teachingwithipad.org | Technology | Scoop.it

"From the makers of the extremely popular Reflector (also featured onteachingwithipad.org) comes an exciting new application called Slingshot. If used to its full potential, Slingshot can bring together both educators and their students to collaborate and make presentations in a whole new way.

 

AirPlay mirroring has been an excellent feature in the classroom to promote wireless mobility while you circulate among your students. The features of Slingshot takes this capability one step further. Now, anyone who joins a session that you host will be able to see your screen as you teach (providing that they have a compatible device). The possibilities of this are plenty."

Create Short Biographies With Morfo 3D Faces - iPad Apps for School

Create Short Biographies With Morfo 3D Faces - iPad Apps for School | Technology | Scoop.it

"Yesterday, at the Catholic Schools Foundation Summer Tech Conference at Boston College I saw a fantastic panel discussion on using technology in K-2 classrooms. One of the really neat things that I saw was an example of students using Morfo 3D Faces to create short biographies. Morfo 3D Faces is an iPad app that you can use to create a talking picture of person’s face. You can take a picture of a person or you can take a picture of a picture of a person (think taking a picture of a picture of George Washington). Once you’ve captured the picture you can customize the face by altering the eyes, mouth, and nose to move as you talk. After customizing the picture you can record yourself talking."

26 iPad Apps For A Paperless Classroom - Te@chThought

26 iPad Apps For A Paperless Classroom - Te@chThought | Technology | Scoop.it

"The paperless classroom is a compelling concept for what it symbolizes as much as anything else.


While it sounds sleek and futuristic and easy to organize and environmentally friendly, the reality is that paperless classrooms aren’t that simple. The “environmentally-friendly” part, for example, is wildly subjective: the costs of manufacturing–and eventually recycling and disposing of–tablets versus the loss of “renewable” trees and the subsequent waste that is environmentally-friendly."
