iTeach: The best 1:1 device is good teaching

iTeach: The best 1:1 device is good teaching | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
The best device a school can roll out is a teacher who can adapt to new and emerging technologies, does not always require formal training for learning and staying current, and is not tethered to a product in order to teach.

Yes yes yes!  Why do many teacher-librarians persist in demanding that their PD always take place during school hours? If you want to develop YOURSELF professionally, shouldn't you be taking every opportunity you can afford? If you can read a tabloid in your own time, you can find time to read a professional journal too - simple things can make a huge difference! Manage your own professional development, don't expect your school or your union to do it for you! Good teachers and librarians are learning all the time, and sharing their learning - with colleagues and with students.

Sue Osborne's comment, May 26, 2013 10:23 PM
I love the comments about professional development not always being done in school hours. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing. Period.

Teachers are the rock stars in the class room...but great rock stars need instruments to create music.

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

Felix Jacomino's insight:

Thanks Greg!

Mobile iEducator | reviewing the best apps for education | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.
