Of course a Verizon study is gonna promote the use of mobile devices and shift the debate in favour of the BYOD (Bring your own device) advocates.

Ναι, και στην Ελλάδα απαγορεύονται τα κινητά με 1-2 μέρες αποβολή, αν  γίνει χρήση τους εντός της σχολικής τάξης από τον μαθητή, αλλά υπάρχουν και καθηγητές που τα εντάσσουν στη διδασκαλία τους όποτε μπορούν, κρυφά από τον ...διευθυντή.

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers - Edudemic | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow. (A very useful resource. Toni :-))

Study Smarter – Take Notes And Highlight Text Within iBooks [iOS Tips] | Cult of Mac | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Ebooks are all the rage these days, and your iPad is a perfect device for reading them. Textbooks, too, are becoming de riguer for many students in college and even high school, as educators, schools, and publishers find a greater demand for electronic instructional materials.

 

But studying from a book requires interacting with the text at a greater level than just reading it, of course, as students need to keep track of specific passages, or comment on them as they relate to their learning or lecture notes. Most eReading apps, like Nook and Kindle, have these features as well, but iBooks definitely has the most well designed, so let’s take a look at how to use it to study with your electronic books."

iBooks not only speaks the selection but it can also highlight text in different colors and create notes. Great way to provide the tools for using reading strategies to electronic text.

Creating ePub books in apps like Pages, Creative Book Builder allows you to create your own texts for students.

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time. A lot of what I have done with those school districts is help to get the teachers acclimated to using Google Drive. When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills I think teachers need."
