The Best Interactive Web Tools for Educators

The Best Interactive Web Tools for Educators | TELT | Scoop.it

 

Slideshare - Get the credit and audience you deserve for your presentations!

Scoop.it - A stellar social bookmarking service that is being used by a ton of teachers right now.

PlanBoard - It’s an online lesson planner made for teachers. Create, share, and manage lesson plans with simple and easy to use lesson plan templates.

Evernote - It’s insanely popular in education and useful for teachers, students, parents, and just about anyone who wants to remember what they’ve done.

Dropbox - I use Dropbox every day. I had to up to the 100GB size and feel like I’ll never fill it up. Great for backing up everything, accessing files remotely (even from your smartphone and tablet) and sharing things. I’ve seen it used for handing in homework on a regular basis.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I know we always say (a) it's not the tools it's the pedagogy and (b) teacher education is best done in context, but you have to start somewhere and if you don't have tools or pedagogy, a few decent tools can be a place to start.  I use maybe eight or ten of these regularly for teaching and teacher training.

Call for Chapter: Preparing FL teachers for next-generation education | TELT | Scoop.it
It is expected that this volume will help foreign-language researchers as well as teacher-educators to rethink the critical import of the teacher as the decision-maker and pivotal player in any school-based technology implementation. It is also expected to shed light on foreign-language teacher education through its emphasis on capitalizing on diverse digital technologies to enhance teachers’ instruction and students’ learning, as well as promoting teachers’ self-directed professional advancement.


Target Audience

The target audience of this book will include researchers, K-16 teacher-educators, policymakers, and school administrators who are interested in the roles of technology in foreign-language teaching and teacher-education. This book can be used as a textbook or reference book for foreign-language teacher preparation courses and graduate-level courses in technology for second-language teaching and learning. Researchers and teacher-educators who are interested in technology in foreign-language teaching and teacher education, or teacher education in general, may also find this volume a useful resource.
