All that Teachers Need to Use Technology in Their Classroom | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Today as I was checking the backlinks to my blog I stumbled upon a link to a great Livebinder created by Dr.Seam Owen. To my utter surprise, the binder contains some of the most popular posts in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. These posts are organized into easily accessibile categories. There are also links to other equally interesting websites, presentations, slideshows, google docs, ebooks and many more. Dr Seam has assembled all the important web technology that teachers need to digitise their teaching.

Inquiry-based learning is founded on students taking the lead in their own learning, but it still requires considerable planning on your part. Projects must fit into your larger program structure, goals and plans, but the students will be actively involved in planning the projects with you and asking the questions that launch their individual inquiries.
