Free Technology for Teachers: Dipity - Create Timelines About Current Events

Free Technology for Teachers: Dipity - Create Timelines About Current Events | What's new in Social Media for Education | Scoop.it

Dipity is a great timeline creation tool that allows users to incorporate text, images, and videos into each entry on their timeline. Like most good web tools, Dipity has a collaboration option and has multiple options for sharing your timelines publicly or privately. Each entry to a Dipity timeline can include multiple types of media which allows users to add more detail and information than can be included in a traditional timeline. If you want to import Tweets and other social media messages, you can do that too on Dipity. And as I learned earlier this week, Dipity will work on your iPad.

"But, let’s be clear what this means: thousands of students across the world taking the same course, with the same content, from the same instructor. And that is the problem. MOOC’s are now at the forefront of the McDonaldization of higher education."

We would assert that what's good for the teacher is also good for the learners, and what are teachers anyway besides master learners? At least the best teachers are master learners!

Classroom 2.0 Book chapters about education and instructional technology topics

Classroom 2.0 Book chapters about education and instructional technology topics | What's new in Social Media for Education | Scoop.it

Earlier this year, Steve got together with Richard Byrne (FreeTech4Teachers) and Christopher Dawson (ZDNet Education) and initiated a project with the objective of producing a collaboratively developed book to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Classroom 2.0. They invited writers to submit chapters about education and instructional technology topics, with the intention of publishing all submissions in a forum where they could be accessed by the general public for review. All of the chapter submissions are now available (for free) on Scribd.com, here: http://www.scribd.com/Classroom20Book.

Educational Technology in ELT: Visual literacy: Flickr-fed web 2.0 tools

Educational Technology in ELT: Visual literacy: Flickr-fed web 2.0 tools | What's new in Social Media for Education | Scoop.it

Every picture tells a story, Flickr allows you to upload, collect and search images, many are Creative Commons meaning you can re-use them in your own articles and presentations (usually attributing the person who was kind enough to allow you to re-use it). Access to so many images provides a huge resource that can be used effectively with learners, especially perhaps English, art and language students. Many ideas to fire up your own imagination are outlined here.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 2014 8:41 AM

Here is another list this morning that both parents, students and teachers might find helpful.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 5:46 PM

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.
