Great Tools and Apps to Teach Students Computer Programming ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

"Learning how to write a computer program is a lot like learning a new language. There are nouns, verbs, and sentences. With far fewer words than a spoken language, it may be easier too. A student of languages can pick it up just as quickly as a student of math. To help, here are a set of tools that teach computer programming."

Using the Web Clipboard in Google Drive | Drive Bunny | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it
Sandra Carswell's insight:

Web clipboard is a tool in Google Drive that I didn't know anything about. It is already there, right under the Edit menu.  The great thing is you can use it to copy something to your web clipboard and it will stay there until you remove it so that means you can copy it when you are on one device and paste it later when you are on another because it is on the web and not on your device. I've needed that feature and had no idea it was available.

Michelle Luhtala: 30 apps for educators and students | eSchool News | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

“There’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” said Michelle Luhtala, head librarian at New Canaan High School in Connecticut, while presenting a list of 50 apps that educators and students might find useful.

 

"Luhtala featured apps that have been crowsourced by a handful of her colleagues and students. The apps promote and target 21st-century skills such as collaboration and creativity.


"We’ve featured 30 of the resources she mentioned, and you can find the full resource list online.


"Check out Luhtala’s presentation for all the apps and tools she mentioned, as well as to discover how these apps are used in real classrooms."

Edmodo is a great online platform with huge educational potential for teachers. Since its launch a few years ago, Edmodo is being used now by huge number of teachers and schools from all around the globe. Given this mounting importance of Edmodo in teaching, I created  a section where you can find a plethora of resources, guides, and materials on how to leverage the power of this web tool in your classroom, check out here.

Today, I am sharing with you two important things every teacher should be able to do on Edmodo. These are: creating a classroom group and adding apps to this group.
