This groundbreaking EdTech study examines the way that modern technology is bringing remarkable innovation into the educational sector; a field which has historically remained fairly fixed and traditional for centuries. The report analyses the degree to which education is being made into a universally accessible, innovative, personalized, and adaptive experience, and finds that the these changes will be pivotal for achieving the United Nations’ goal of universal education by 2015.
A great overview of the possibilities for technology to impact education - not only in distributed learning programs but also in brick and mortar schools. Worth a look.

Slatebox helps you draw and share ideas very easily on "slates" that kids love to use. You can spend less time telling them how to use Slatebox and more time conveying the idea because it's so straightforward.
You can give new students logins with PINs instead of email. Plus, you'll see everything they do in real-time. You'll be able to assign new slates as homework based on templates you produce, and manage all of their work from a single portal.
Slatebox lets you create mind maps and infographics easily and without registration. If you want to work in a small team, register and invite collaborators (up to 3).
The tool is free and if you work on your own, you do not even need to register. Great for using with students as the tool does not require any previous experience.
I am really impressed with the possibilities in visual presentations. This is going far beyond your standard powerpoint.
Simple to learn interface with quick and easy log in for students via pin. Collaboration is always good.
Would you like to improve your students' writing skills and help them bridge the gap between writing in school and writing in the real world?

For us, critical thinking happens when students analyze and evaluate evidence, arguments, claims and beliefs. They can then learn how to make judgments and decisions based on others’ points of view, interpret information and draw conclusions.
Muy importante siempre promover el pensamiento crítico
Entre las diversas estrategias para promocionar el pensamiento crítico, se proponen cuatro (INQUIRY, QUESTIONING, PROBLEM SOLVING Y COLLABORATION), por ser, según el autor, las de mayor impacto.
Buena síntesis a la hora de implementar en el aula, de manera colaborativa, el aprendizaje significativo y el pensamiento crítico , siendo clave plantear 'guiding questions', de naturaleza abierta ('open-ended'), en la actividad diaria con los estudiantes.
Students (future adults) need to learn what is and how to critical thinking from their own discoveries. SO that they will earn the freedom of critical thinking in their own time, from their own realities... I like this paper, the subject is an endless work in progress for a better social collective and individual well being!
Give a voice to your audience with live polls and questions for Prezi. Set up your account in less than 1 minute and easily engage your audience.
Excellent tool. And it works without a Prezi presentation for an event that spans over a week. Very cool.
Seems like Prezi just gets better and better. Adding the ability to allow chat between people, whilst they edit..... you can now give them polls and questions as well. Just so cool. Can't wait for the opportunity to try this out. eib
Great little addition for Prezi users to create polls right within Prezi.
Amazing - free - resource for SS courses.
So you're a Google guru or a search siren... I bet you still don't know every last trick and tool in Google's array of services. But whether you're a newbie or expert, the following infographic may very well be worth printing out and posting in your office or teacher's lounge.

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."
A good summary overview of the evolution of language.
Not really primary geography but so interesting!
A good teaching tool for explaining the diversity of languages.
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?
The eight C's devised by Doug Belshaw are a neat framework to consider for use in thinking about digital literacy. There are others that are also useful and that is also useful. It will be interesting to note how this field is defined over time.
