"We’ve already seen 15 Essential iPad Apps For Students here on Appstorm, but I’d like to look at this from a different angle. There are an abundance of note taking apps, planning apps, organizers, and so on, but at the end of the day we have to sit down and learn things (terrible isn’t it?).

How Do U.S. Students Rank Among Other Countries? | Teach.com

How Do U.S. Students Rank Among Other Countries? | Teach.com | Technology for school | Scoop.it
Harvard releases a fascinating report that concludes that the performance rate of students in 24 other countries is growing faster than students in the U.S.

There are some interesting conclustions that are drawn in this report. "It analyzes the possible causes for the results and the disparities in student performance, both abroad and at home. Interestingly enough, it finds no evidence to support the theory that an increase in spending has any influence on student performance, as many states that spend a lot on education exhibited as high performance improvement rates as states that do not spend as much. Bottom line: Throwing money at the problem does not fix it. So what does?" 
To learn more access the full report at: http://www.hks.harvard.edu/pepg/PDF/Papers/PEPG12-03_CatchingUp.pdf.

Can your class survive a week without Technology?

Can your class survive a week without Technology? | Technology for school | Scoop.it

Gleeson shares three scenarios that may happen in your classroom (they did in his) and in each case the result was that the students were not able to use the Internet. When we work with technology things often happen, and the end result may be the lesson plan that you had goes out the window. This post asks us if we are prepared for these types of scenarios and raises some other questions that may be considered.
You may also want to check out a post he refers to in this post that shares Web 2.0 tools that may be used by students under 13. The post, Web 2.0 for the Under 13s Crowd, is located at:

http://mgleeson.edublogs.org/2012/07/05/web-2-0-for-the-under-13s-crowd/. (It is also in this Scoop.it).
