I would like to highlight the following from this article:
Let’s take the focus off the tool; Instead, let’s focus on:
the pedagogy behind the tool and use it because it addresses our students’ cognitive needs, not because it is available or exciting.
developing critical thinkers with the ability to find, reflect on, curate and synthesise information.
developing lifelong learners who will be able to create and use their Personal Learning Networks to self-educate and grow.
educating digital citizens, that is, responsible members of an increasingly global and interconnected world who know their rights and responsibilities; people who can make informed decisions about the content they create or share and its impact on themselves and on the other members of a digital community.
So true, so many tools so little time. We must remember our first objective is to be a teacher.
Soyons centrés sur la pédagogie et non sur la technique.
Finding an extensive list of webtools that do not require registration is not always easy to do, but this list by Nathan Hall fits the bill.
Are you looking for a list of webtools that do not require registration? If you make a point to check out this list, which has at least 25 categories ranging from QR codes to Surveys and Polls, Charts/Graphs to Word Clouds, Maps to Calculators and so many more. As you scroll down this lengthy list you may find something that meets your needs in an area you had not yet considered!
A great collection of useful web tools.
No Registration huh......that means FREE and comes in under our budget of $0.23.

"SummarizeThis is a free tool that summarizes the main point(s) of long articles that you find on the web. To use SummarizeThis you just copy and paste text into the summary box and click "summarize." A summary of the text then appears above the original text that you copied."
Possibly not just for teachers, but if it works so well then maybe the authors might need to think again, 'brevity the soul of wit'
This looks surprisingly effective (in my test of one article) ... and could be a useful first order tool for scanning large amounts of work. Students might learn to summarise/paraphrase by looking carefully at how the results relate to the original text (if they can resist just cutting and pasting the new words).
Here's a cool tool for teachers! Time saver.
As part of my 2013 review I’ve been looking over some blogs and reports I read this year, and this one by Anthony Chivetta, whilst originally posted in 2008, still has so much impact today, some 5 years on – “21st Century Education: Thinking...

"One of the components of Close Reading is annotation, in which the students read short, complex text adding annotations as they read. Students might circle words or phrases that are powerful, underline those that are confusing, indicate big events or when a character shows strong emotion, and write questions or thoughts. They use metacognitive markers or “Thinking Notes” as a means to move beyond just highlighting..."
Close Reading covers a wide range of materials: poems, news articles, short stories, plays, photos, paintings, videos and more. This post provides five tools to help students annotate a wide variety of media. They are listed below, More detailed explanations are found in the post.
* Doctopus - this program is great if you use Google Apps (and therefore Google Drive).
* Diigo is a great tool for annoting text and images found online. Drawing tools are also available.
* Markup does not require an account. "It provides tools for drawing, highlighting, adding text, and sharing via a link. It does require the installation of a bookmarklet or the Chrome extension."
* PDFzen is a free tool that works with Google Drive. It will open the following types of files: pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlx, odt and rtf.
* VideoAnt allows you to annotate videos hosted on YouTube as well as HTML5 and flash videos and works in a number of browsers.
As we begin to prepare our students for new testing the ability to annotate is critical. These tools provide a variety of options that you may want to explore and use in your classroom.
Whether Conducting Academic Research or Purely Scientific Research, These Sites can be an Invaluable Aid.
Researching is the most crucial step of writing a scientific paper. It is always a well-researched scientific paper that inspires the assessor. At the same time, it must have genuine and authentic information for credibility. With the development in Internet industry, i.e., web resources, researching for scientific materials has now become a matter of a few clicks. Now students can get information on any topic pertaining to science through academic search engines. They provide a centralized platform and allow the students to acquire literature on any topic within seconds.
When working with students to develp information fluency it is very useful to get them to explore alternatives to the two major search engines taht most people rely on. This broadening of search strategy also helps limit the effect of "filter bubbles"
If you're not sure what a filter bubble might be then you will be shocked when you read and watch this: http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2011/05/12/the-filter-bubble/
Get your kids to design LEGO models
LEGO Digital Designer is quite simply the best virtual building system out there – with its “Click-Stick” method of 3D modelling winning praise from children, parents, teachers and design enthusiasts everywhere.
Many of my students love this tool and it can be used for fine arts as well!

I was having a discussion recently with someone about trends in education, and the topic of augmented reality came up.
Interactive whiteboards are a great classroom tool. Many teachers use them to project and capture images - basically as a high tech, connected chalkboard. The post 8 Ways To Unlock The Power Of Your Interactive Whiteboard appeared first on Edudemic.
"With the Internet an integral part of everyone's daily lives for both business and pleasure, learning basic programming isn't just a smart idea, it's an essential skill for grown-ups and children alike. Learning how to build simple websites and games helps kids hone their design, logic and problem-solving skills, and allows them to express their ideas and creativity in lots of different ways. There are a number of FREE websites that teach children how to play around with code. Here are some of our favorites:"

Are you a company that considers developing an eLearning course to train your human resources? Would you be interested to know what are the most common mistakes in the development of an eLearning course?
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent some time addressing my earlier commitments to flipping at least some portion of my Language Arts classes. (You can learn about my ongoing saga at “4 Ways Flipping Forces Fundamental Change” and at “Why I Haven’t Flipped…Yet”). Reading FlipYour Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams provided practical advice and a justification for flipping, Learning about the Stanford studies that suggest better results from flipping your flipping (that is, doing hands-on work in the classroom first, reinforced by flipped lessons at night) But, ultimately, what I needed to do was to dive in and try out some tools with my kids and my curriculum in mind. The unexpected result: I’ve had to acknowledge something I hadn’t really thought about — I am a video-phobe.
Flipped classroom tools
from the text:
"Bergmann and Sams are quick to point out that simply transferring a boring lecture to video will not transform anyone’s teaching in a way that dramatically benefits students."
“ For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now.”
This has to be one of the programs I cannot do without - for personal as well as professional organisation of my life. I am finding that the more I add, the better it is. It is my digital filing cabinet, my bookmarks, my reminders, my collection of stuff. It is utterly wonderful. If you are looking for a method by which to reduce paper and sort out your online presence, this is it - but be persistent!
