11 BYOD Apps That Keep The Focus On Content

11 BYOD Apps That Keep The Focus On Content | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"Concerns around BYOD usually involve privacy and legal issues, but one of the primary points of BYOD is allowing students to access content and curriculum directly via devices they’re familiar with. The following 11 apps can be used in a BYOD classroom to help keep the focus on content and publication, rather than the aforementioned digital fences that academic institutions can sometimes get distracted by."


Via EDTECH@UTRGV
Lee Hall's insight:

Some of these apps make BYOD so useful. Evernote and dropbox put an end to your students looking for their flashdrive.

Some useful applications here. I regularly use Evernote, Google Drive and You Tube with my students. Instead of Padlet we use Linoit as a creative space for posting material and uploading multimedia for a variety of activities.

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017 | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Resolutions are often an exercise in wishful thinking. People rarely keep them, mostly because they’re vague about their goals and don’t have a plan for following through. But that isn't the only thing that may weaken resolve or slow progress toward a goal. Failing to understand some practical brain science can just as quickly do you in.

 

Neuroscience has shown us this year that we may actually have everything we need to stay focused, be more creative, remember more, and make better decisions—just as long as we can work a bit more with our brains, not against them. Here are a few things we learned that can take you closer toward being your best self in 2017.
