App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic

App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic | common core reads | Scoop.it

Many schools that have adopted one-one tablet technology struggle with the pre-requisite skills associated with moving files from app to app. This process is now called App Smashing, and when you learn how to use it to your advantage, it really does make things nice and simple.

Workflow is king and the easier it is to distribute content, create solutions, and then store that information for feedback, the more success you will have in the digital classroom.

The phrase that jumped out at me is "Workflow is king..." . The classroom is all about flow.  


The use of tablets can be daunting when it comes to getting your documents to go where you want them to go. So, flow seems a good topic to investigate.


Slide on into this article. It will help!

Seeking ways to differentiate instruction in your classroom? Look here for quality outsources on a complex topic. Ferlazzo's "power-packed line-up" of guest responders speak to the issue. Additionally you'll find a compilation of Best Resources on the subject.    

David Miles's curator insight, April 19, 2014 9:10 PM

I find it challenging to work out how to differentiate (or whether I am differentiating) lessons in secondary school classes where everything is driven by the needs of an examination system. This idea, that there are multiple incarnations of differentiation, I find quite helpful.

Brew Your Own Personalized PD (EdSurge Guides)

Brew Your Own Personalized PD (EdSurge Guides) | common core reads | Scoop.it

Personalized learning is on the rise for learners in our schools. Redesigned schools include personal learning plans, playlists of content tailored to fit each learner, adaptive curriculum, and access to learning anytime and anywhere. 

That's great for students but what about teachers? Where's the personalized learning, the carefully constructed playlists, the pitch-perfect material that fits their grade level and subject needs and interests?

Google Docs Research Template - A Stepping Stone

Google Docs Research Template - A Stepping Stone | common core reads | Scoop.it

Earlier this year I designed a template to introduce teachers to the usefulness of using Google Presentation as a tool for research. The purpose of the template is for use as a starting point to help teachers plan and implement technology driven learning experiences that are fueled by Essential Questions and aligned to Common Core Standards.

I tried the link to get a copy of the Google Presentation Research Template that is in this blog post. It was not found. I sent Susan a message so hopefully she will get the link corrected.

I make a habit of following Joyce's work. She's always experiment with new tools and consistently delivers quality content. 


Who better than an expert 'cybrarian' to deliver a graphically enhanced Copyright Toolkit?

Technology Integration Matrix

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.

50 Inspiring TED Talks For Teachers: Updated For 2014

"The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.


So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher."

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.
