Awesome Chart for Teachers- Alternatives to Traditional Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

Sandra Carswell's insight:

I can see how some web tools would be perfectly suited for some of the suggested activities, ie. Padlet for posting questions about reading assignment, use Socrative for the short pop quizzes, a Google  form for collecting memorization tricks for vocabulary words that can be shared with the class.  Do you see any others?

Even though this chart is not directly related to PBL, it makes you think about everyday assignments that are formatted the same way. The students are posing the questions and offers alternatives to traditional assessments.
Olivia Jackson's comment, February 20, 8:58 PM
These ideas are actually "connecting" to topics in some of my other Education classes (EDCI461, for example). I see the connection to PBL, too!

Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices

Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"Read Write Think offers a bunch of great web, iOS, and Android applications for students. One of those that I recently learned about from David Kapuler is Read Write Think's Timeline creator. RWT Timline is available as a web app (Flash required), as an Android app, and as an iPad app. All three versions make it easy for students to create timelines for any series of events."

With this Timeline tool, students could create timelines of the plot of a story they've read. Or they could use it to plan the plot line of a story they're planning to write.

alle platforms... daar moeten we naar toe, lijkt me

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, January 29, 3:56 AM

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Richard Byrne

 

"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 that I think teachers and students need."

Sandra Carswell's insight:

We have to make sure everyone is on the same page at least at a basic level of use for any adoption we want to use school wide.

Top free tools for edtech in your classroom this year - Mark Anderson's Blog

Top free tools for edtech in your classroom this year - Mark Anderson's Blog | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"E-learning or using technology to support learning comes in many different shapes and sizes. I’m always being asked to give advice and ideas on different online tools or iPad apps that can help with learning in the classroom. It’s always a challenge to balance the needs of the activity, with the skills of the learners and often too the greater challenge is to raise the confidence of the teachers. I often hear from teachers about how they want to achieve more effective learning using technology, but often don’t have the software resources to achieve them, which is often due to finances. This article aims to give you my top FREE online tools to support learning in the classroom."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

There are many, many excellent free tools in this article.
