Attention Teachers: One Third of American High School Students Own an iPhone | Wired Educator | web2-schools | Scoop.it

Too many teachers worry about how students will misuse the device rather than how they will excel with them. Don’t ask questions you can answer with Google. At the very least teachers can make videos, podcasts, blog, recommend apps, engage students with project deadlines and resources.

We love this document that Mark Anderson has produced for a training day at his school in North Somerset, UK. It succinctly provides the name of Web2.0 tools and gives you examples of how to use them...

 

From our experience teachers did need quick, easy and fast ways to connect to new technology ideas. We think Mark achieves this very well!

Mobile Storytelling: An Evolving Story | Forum One: Drupal and Open Source Development, User Experience, and Digital Communications Strategy. | web2-schools | Scoop.it

With the arrival of smartphones, it’s amazing how much data we are collecting and consuming on our mobile devices. We tweet, checkin, google, blog, instagram, post status updates, yelp and a host of other things from our handheld devices. And somewhere on the internet this information is quietly collecting. In the ancient times, pharaohs had scribes that shadowed them, recording what they said. Now we have our mobile devices diligently collecting our data. There was once a time when people used to record their lives and thoughts in leather-bound diaries. Now we have smartphones, whose data, when strung together forms the story of our lives.
