APPitic - 1,300+ EDUapps | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Almost two years ago to the day, I wrote a post, “The iPad: Why Teachers Should Care.” Flash forward to today, both of the schools I work at have purchased one iPad for each classroom. Although I’ve already mastered how to manage all the iDevices in my personal household, learning to manage iPads in an institutional environment involved a bit more learning due to the complexities of software licensing and the necessity to keep institutional accounts separate from personal ones."

Instant back channel chat room

Instant back channel chat room | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

If you work in a computer lab or wireless environment and you want to encourage your students to bring along laptops and mobile devices and participate in your lessons, then SimpleMeet.Me is a really useful tool. Personally, I have found that using a back channel in this way has transformed the way I teach and enabled me to completely do away with using any kind of paper handouts in class - so no more photocopying. It's also reduced the amount of wasted time struggling with students misspelling URLs and increased engagement during the classes ( we can do this on Moodle great to here how well it is working for others... Toni :-))

What today’s Digital Native children can teach the rest of us about technology

What today’s Digital Native children can teach the rest of us about technology | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

if devices are an extension of one’s self, and these devices are increasingly integrated with the physical world, it follows that technology is a gateway to expanding our own experiences with and confidence in the world at large. Technology is no longer an end in itself – instead, it becomes a path to more meaningful experiences with our surroundings. Kids are naturally intuiting this, and we as adults are following closely behind.

Digital learning: Final chapter for textbooks?

Digital learning: Final chapter for textbooks? | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

It's no surprise that students are obsessed with their mobile devices. What may come as a surprise, though, is the fact that these digital devices may someday replace textbooks all together—and it may be sooner than we think! South Korea recently announced that by the year 2015, all paper textbooks will be replaced with digital textbooks available on mobile devices such as tablets and e-readers.

As students become more and more dependent on digital, will textbooks become extinct? Learn more about this trend in the below infographic.

Mobile Learning: A Teachable Moment in the Age of the App | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

These new tools engage us all in various contemporary projects of shareable knowledge, hyper-connected communication and collective cognition. Our own constantly connected mobile device puts nearly infinite information at our fingertips in a dematerialized, timeless and placeless context. Strangely though, the fruits of this placeless and timeless mobility shift yield a seemingly tactile media (e.g., multi-touch) for chronological (e.g., blog) and geo-locative (e.g., check-in) tendencies.

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses | Using Technology to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I hope you have found something interesting here and this article makes you think a little more about how you deliver teacher training in general as the use of these tools isn't just restricted to tech training. They could be integrated into the delivery of any language or teacher training course and to some extent I feel that until tech tools are integrated into mainstream teacher training we aren't going to get the quality and quantity of digitally literate teachers that we need to really provide a 21st century learning environment for our students.

 This is an excellent blog post containing some great idea's. Toni :-)
