This post shares 10 websites that are "game hubs" and the games range from one for students as young as preK to students in high school.

David Baker's curator insight, March 15, 4:21 PM

This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Another example of SAMR model.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 3:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 3:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 23, 7:00 PM

Five resources are shared in this post, with explanations about how to use them in your classroom. All have free versions available.

* LessonPaths (http://www.lessonpaths.com/) allows you to put together groups of web resources and other digital resources in one location. (This was called MentorMob.)

* Blendspace (https://www.blendspace.com/schools) is similar to LessonPaths but with a different look to it. Check them both out to see which fits your needs.

* Geddit (http://letsgeddit.com/) provides a space where you can ask questions and students can respond using most any digital device that can access the Internet.

* TED-Ed (http://letsgeddit.com/) is a resource that provides lessons that include a video, questions, resources and a discussion forum and allow you to flip any lesson you find. Additional videos are added frequently.

* Powtoon (http://www.powtoon.com) allows you to create videos using templates. It is a little more complex to learn and you will be limited to five minute videos unless you subscribe. There is an educational version available.

Have fun exploring these tools and creating content to engage your students!

Lori Wilk's curator insight, March 23, 8:14 PM

This list of webistes offers suggestions for sites with tools  to help teachers to create interactive learning environment from surveys, to lessons, to making short videos. Super helpful escpecially since there's both free and paid versions available. You can have teaching tools on a zero or low budget.#education#technology.
