carldowse's curator insight, July 10, 2013 4:11 AM

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.

Anne-Mart Olsen's curator insight, July 10, 2013 4:12 AM

I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.

All that Teachers Need to Use Technology in Their Classroom

All that Teachers Need to Use Technology in Their Classroom | Uni Stuff | 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.

Build with Chrome

Build with Chrome | Uni Stuff | Scoop.it

I don't often talk about it, but I own a little house in Sydney bay. It's not much, but I'm proud of it. The problem is that it is only virtual and made out of Lego. This wonderful site allows you to design 3D houses, or anything else, with virtual Lego on a virtual plot in Australia or New Zealand. It's like a simplified version of SketchUp, great for younger children.
