J'aime beaucoup "booksnaps" ou comment demander aux élèves de rendre compte de leur lecture en prenant une photo d'un passage, en commentant ce qu'ils ont compris et en ajoutant une image. C'est une façon d'utiliser snapchat à des fins éducatives.

How to Use Split View Multitasking on iPad -OSXDaily

How to Use Split View Multitasking on iPad -OSXDaily | the Tech Monstah | Scoop.it
The latest versions of iOS for iPad include a great multitasking feature called Split View, which, much as it sounds, allows users to split the screen on the iPad between two active apps side-by-side. iPad and iPad Pro users can adjust the size of each app panel or have them take up an equal amount of space, enabling users to essentially use two apps at the same time.

App Combo: Folidfy and QR Codes - Class Tech TIps

App Combo: Folidfy and QR Codes - Class Tech TIps | the Tech Monstah | Scoop.it

"This year at ISTE in Atlanta, I shared with teachers one easy way to add QR codes to three-dimensional shapes.  

 

The app Foldify lets users create a template for a variety of three-dimensional shapes.  Instead of drawing a picture or adding family photos, I used a QR code generator on my iPad, saved the pictures to the Camera Roll, and placed them on my Folidify creation.  They are easy to assemble after your print them out and great for having students roll a dice for a mystery writing prompt or math problem."

The Next National Education Technology Plan | EdSurge News

The Next National Education Technology Plan | EdSurge News | the Tech Monstah | Scoop.it


“The future is here; it’s just not evenly distributed.”

"A variation of the prophetic quote attributed to cyberpunk novelist, William Gibson, introduces the  2016 National Education Technology Plan (NETP) released today by the U.S. Department of Education.

“If the technology revolution only happens for families that already have money and education,” writes Arne Duncan, outgoing Secretary of Education, “then it’s not really a revolution.”

This emphasis on equity, and ensuring that all teachers and learners of all backgrounds have access to quality technology tools, anchors the many ambitious goals laid in this fourth and latest national education technology plan. The 106-page document envisions what education could look like in coming years, describes how technology can play a role, and outlines steps that education leaders, entrepreneurs, teachers, researchers, policymakers and others can take."

Why The Maker Movement Matters - @Venspired

Why The Maker Movement Matters - @Venspired | the Tech Monstah | Scoop.it
I get caught up in things.Informercials. New gadgets. New shades of Sharpie. Everykid I’ve ever taught has said, “You say EVERYTHING is your “favorite thing.” It’s true. Life? It’s my favorite. I grew up, but my internal excitement level has stayed at a five year old’s level. So, I’ll just preface this post with that. I will also say that I’ve held off on writing this. Long enough to figure out if this whole “maker movement” was another “thing I love,” or more. It’s more. So much more.
