How to choose between iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom - Daily Genius

How to choose between iPads and Chromebooks in the classroom - Daily Genius | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
The race to be the go-to technology in your classroom is more than heating up. It’s on fire. Like, someone grab a fire extinguisher because the race is ablaze. The two biggest contestants in this race are, not surprisingly, products from Apple and Google.

Both Apple and Google are in a high-stakes race to own the education ecosystem. They’re going about it in different ways but their goals are the same: to have their products used by the next generation.

MacBook, Chromebook, iPads: Why Schools Should Think Beyond Platforms - Mind/Shift

MacBook, Chromebook, iPads: Why Schools Should Think Beyond Platforms - Mind/Shift | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
How long can any device realistically be expected to remain an effective tool in the classroom? Three years? Five years? Yet today, when schools decide on a device for their 1:1 programs, that choice quickly gets written into their school “brand.” Schools become identified by that choice, and the evaluation of other devices ceases. There are even certifications to this extent, such as GAFE schools, Apple Distinguished Schools, and so on.

But it’s important that schools who make “the choice” don’t simply stop planning at that point. As educational technology becomes key to the daily workings of a classroom, discussing the direction of its use should not end once devices are in their students’ hands.

The New School Library

The New School Library | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it

Without question, the Internet has changed the way we think and learn, and will continue to do so as our technology evolves. In particular, the ability to access enormous amounts of information at any time from almost any place is forcing schools to redefine the idea of a classroom and the way we approach teaching. It is also reshaping the notion of school library services — what libraries look like and how they and librarians best serve schools.

Drawing with Shapes in Keynote - DrydenArt | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
Did you know that the Keynote software (Apple's presentation tool) on the Mac has a drawing tool? 

It is a vector based tool that creates clean and customizable shapes that you can fill with color, gradients, or a photo. Then layer, arrange, flip, add shadows and group these shapes until they've become almost anything you can dream of.

Having seen this tool incorporated into a SMLE on this week's discussion board I was curious. Now I'm impressed.

The new templates are impressive! I looked into Haiku Deck a few years back, but it seemed limited in terms of other presentation tools available. Now I see much more affordability in using the tool.

15 amazing features in Google Apps you probably don't know about - Business Insider | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
Google has big plans for its Microsoft Office killer, Google Apps. It hopes to nab 80% of Office users away from Microsoft.

To do that, Google isn't just matching some of Microsoft's Office's best features, it is adding a bunch of cool features of its own. Some of them can be pretty hard to find. So we asked Google to send us a list of some the best little-known features in Google Apps (plus we threw in a few of our own)

Seven Faces of Information Literacy in Higher Education | Christine Bruce | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it

Information literacy is usually described as the ability to locate, manage and use information effectively for a range of purposes. As such it is an important ´generic skill´ which allows people to engage in effective decision–making, problem solving a nd research. It also enables them to take responsibility for their own continued learning in areas of personal or professional interest.
