Love the A in STEAM.  This is what I believe #SteveJobs was talking about when he describes Apple as being at the intersection of #LiberalArts and #Technology.    I also love these #Infographics and their ability to feed my visual learning.

Basically I really like the graphic here. It's leaps out and grabs your attention. The design is appealing yet simple and easy to navigate. Are we teaching these aspects as we engage students in using technology? Design is so utterly important.

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips

Completely FREE Management App for 1:1 iPad Classrooms - Class Tech Tips | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"Otus is a terrific management tool for teachers in one-to-one classrooms who want an easy way to keep track of student work, provide opportunities for collaboration, and so much more.  I’ve had the opportunity to share Otus with my readers and webinar attendees and want to highlight one of the fantastic aspects of this powerful app – Otus is completely FREE for students and teachers.

 

With Otus teachers can keep track of participation, send notes to students, and take attendance.  They can also recognize student behavior by awarding points and group students.  The bookshelf feature lets teachers organize folders of resources to share with students – this can be done for whole class, individual, or create groups of students.  Otus gives teachers the power to create, assign, and grade assessments.  It is also simple to share these assessments with colleagues who may wish to use the same one or modify it for their students."
