Google Web Designer

Google Web Designer | Technology in the Curriculum | Scoop.it

This is a superb download from Google of a HTML5 programming and web design suite. HTML5 is currently the coding language of choice and the creations should work on most devices. Flash programmers will feel very at home with the timeline interface. The basics are fairly simple with click and drag editing, but professionals will also find this resource very useful with advanced code editing, including CSS.

Iman Mustapha's curator insight, October 14, 2013 8:41 AM

This is an app designed for teachers to get their assessment done quickly using scanning technology. I believe that there are both positives and negatives to this app. The most obvious positive would be how quick it is and how it can automatically organise the results. However, on the other hand, this is obviously done specifically for multiple choice questions, and I think that students in Primary years should have assessments in different forms. For example, short answer type questions gives students the opportunity to express everything they could have learnt in an area, while a multiple choice question could in fact be a lucky guess. I might use this for upper primary school, but I think I would prefer old style correction methods.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Technology in the Curriculum | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
