Thinking of Creating an App for your School?

Thinking of Creating an App for your School? | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"Are you thinking of creating a mobile phone app for your school?

 

Having an online web presence is what most schools nowadays would see as an essential resource. And nowadays, with more and more mobile phone owners in a school community, a natural extension might seem to be having a mobile phone app for the school too."

Many think of technology integration as the same thing as using technology but this infographic shows so much more. Does this resonate with any of you?
Michail Darley's curator insight, October 26, 5:52 PM

The only thing I would add to this handy summary is that we sometimes need to use technology to gain the confidence and skills to integrate technology successfully.

Google is kind of a big deal, to say the least. The tech giant has blossomed over the course of the past decade, quickly becoming part of the global lexicon, and establishing itself as an official verb in the dictionary. Although the company wears many hats, its most valuable asset has always been its phenomenal search engine.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 4:49 PM

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.
