12 Tech Tools That Will Transform The Way You Teach! | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher

12 Tech Tools That Will Transform The Way You Teach! | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Tech Tools valuable to anyone involved with studying, teaching, as well for librarians!

 

RT @deblund: #Teachers #librarians #parents: A handful of #tech tools to use with your #students!

 

This blog post is dedicated to all of the overworked teachers who just don’t have the time to seek out this information. I have provided brief explanations, links to and pictures of the tools mentioned by Simple K12 (and a couple of my favorites). I hope this makes it more manageable for teachers to pick and choose which tools they want to use.

 

The tools:

Collaborize Classroom

Prezi

Evernote

Glogster

etc.

Tools, not Trends | Academic Librarian

Tools, not Trends: http://t.co/olDHo4e3...

 

"...Tools and tech­nolo­gies you absolutely need to use, and what you can ignore for the time being.

In aca­d­e­mic libraries, it means know­ing the tools that stu­dents really want and use ver­sus the tools that trend­watch­ing librar­i­ans claim they should be want­ing and using. You can see some of of those tools in the Edu­cause Cen­ter for Applied Research National Study of Under­grad­u­ate Stu­dents and Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy 2011.

It’s worth skim­ming to get an idea of what tech­nol­ogy stu­dents use and how they use it.

Those who believe that stu­dents avidly adopt every infor­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and social media trend–and who tell us this is essen­tial for librar­i­ans to do as well–might get a few surprises."

The idea of a librarian as an academic expert who is available to talk about assignments and help with research is foreign to most students.

Student Induction, Libraries, Prezi, and Interactive Maps « thewikiman

Student Induction, Libraries, Prezi, and Interactive Maps « thewikiman | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

RT @theREALwikiman: Anyhow, I blogged about it here: Student Induction, Libraries, Prezi, and Interactive Maps http://t.co/k5eHK5Jx...

 

"All new students go through quite a lengthy induction process in the first three weeks at the University. The library is slotted into that – how much time we get with the students varies between departments – and so it’s a good opportunity for us to make contact, promote our services, and try and embed ourselves in the academic culture, but also tricky because the students are overloaded with information as it is.

 

I wanted to give each of my departments an interactive map with all the library info relevant to them specifically – the idea being that it’s easier to navigate an actual map of the library than it is to just search for stuff on the library website. Because each department would have a bespoke map it would mean the students had all the info they needed in one place, and because I created the maps in Prezi they could also be used as a presentation tool (as well as a stand-alone web object, later; I give students the URL of the Prezi itself and tell them not to worry about writing down any of the other URLs it contains).

 

I created a generic map of the library with all the information which wasn’t department specific, then copied that for each of my two departments and doctored it accordingly. I also made it available to my colleagues in Academic Liaison here at York, and a few of them created their own subject-specific versions too."

Blog U.: The Revolution Will Not Be Subscription-Based - Library Babel Fish

"Another fascinating report has just come out from Project Information Literacy, a source of many fascinating reports. This one focuses on how students use technology during the busiest time of the semester. I love what these researchers are doing—actually talking to undergraduates about how they do research (what a concept!) rather than making assumptions. Often, when I read their reports I think to myself “yes, that sounds exactly like our students; no surprises here.”
