This is helpful to understand some of these words floating around...like Crowdsourcing - raising money for small business/creative projects through social media. Perhaps school lbraries could take advantage of some new ways to fundraise through social media.

Didn't know about Bacn, but glad to learn where meme's come from.

digitally adding quizzes onto a ipad.

Ryan Thomas Sweeney's comment, April 24, 2013 10:50 PM
This is what i want to be able to do with my class. Give them classwork or quizzes when i do not see them to keep the students on their toes and help the students without being in the same room.

Student Blogging Guidelines | always learning

Student Blogging Guidelines | always learning | Technology in education | Scoop.it

Interestingly, the guidelines our grade 4 students created last year were just as applicable to middle (and high) school as they were for elementary. We ended up using almost all of the guidelines from last year, with just a few minor re-phrasing issues and consolidation.

App-for-All: Should Every School Build Its Own Mobile App?

App-for-All: Should Every School Build Its Own Mobile App? | Technology in education | Scoop.it
SchoolInfoApp helps schools embrace a mobile-first strategy with its custom mobile apps.

 

Principal: Every school will soon have a mobile application
Stenette Byrd, principal of Smithfield High School in Smithfield, Va., predicts that every school will have its own mobile application in the next few years. Byrd's school launched its own app, using SchoolInfoApp, at the start of the 2012-13 school year. The application saved the school $2,000 in printing costs by offering its student handbook digitally, and the program also helps the school raise money through in-app sponsors, Byrd reports.

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses

10 Tools for Increasing Engagement in Online Courses | Technology in education | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've done a lot of work developing writing and redeveloping online courses and course materials. In the initial rush to get learning online many organisations got themselves a Moodle platform and then attached a whole load of PDFs and .docs, added some forums and the odd video clip and called it an online course. It's no surprise then that drop out rates for online learning courses have been so high.


The advent of Web 2.0 though, brought a whole bunch of new tools that course designers could take advantage of to make content more social, interactive and engaging.

Here are some of the tools I've been using recently to embed a bit more interactivity into the courses I work on.

Engaging students is challenging. Using technology assists in learning.

Ryan Thomas Sweeney's comment, April 24, 2013 10:49 PM
i found this link very interesting since online courses can be so dry and drab. I have taken an online course before and wanted to know how to increase my own engagement let alone other students.
