This is intriguing for two reasons: first, our class covers persuasive techniques; secondly, district iPads are supposed to expand to our English department next year.

Teachers make money selling materials online

Teachers make money selling materials online | Techy Classroom | Scoop.it

Kristine Nannini spent her summer creating wall charts and student data sheets for her fifth grade class—and making $24,000 online by selling those same materials to other teachers. Teachers like Nannini are making extra money providing materials to their cash-strapped and time-limited colleagues on curriculum sharing sites like teacherspayteachers.com, providing an alternative to more traditional — and generally more expensive — school supply stores. Many districts, teachers and parents say these sites are saving teachers time and money, and giving educators a quick way to make extra income.

How Children Used Technology 100 Years Ago

How Children Used Technology 100 Years Ago | Techy Classroom | Scoop.it

"Times have changed for the world of education and technology over the past 100 years. Sure, that’s easy to say. But how can you visualize just how much things have changed? Thanks to the U.S. National Archives, there’s now photographs that will likely open your eyes. In the early 20th century, photos were taken of children working with machines / technology as part of child labor. Controversy aside, the pictures are an interesting window into a much different time. Back then, businesses were free to use children for cheap work despite the dangerous conditions."

Viewpoint: Stop Buying iPads, Please

Viewpoint: Stop Buying iPads, Please | Techy Classroom | Scoop.it

"Before you starting writing me blistering e-mails, rest assured that I am not advocating the boycott of iPads. But I'd like to suggest a little restraint--or perhaps more effective communication--around what appears to be a buying craze among our nation's schools. It seems like every month, at least, we have a new story on thejournal.com about the latest school district that has gone out and bought a boatload of iPads. Indeed, we reported in late July that Apple sold twice as many iPads as Macs to schools in Q3 2012. So I get that these devices are popular. My question is: What is the plan for using them?"
