Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View

Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View | Daring Apps, QR Codes, Gadgets, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

In my life prior to becoming a full-time geeky girl, I was a sixth grade teacher. Throughout those 17 years, my favorite subject to teach was social studies. Within this content area, I loved, loved to share the knowledge (and excitement) I have about the ancient Egyptians. I was—and still am—particularly fascinated with the mummification process and even more so, the Pyramids of Giza.

 

That said, imagine my delight when I opened my browser to “Google” something, and I got a load of the latest tech gem my favorite search engine has to offer.

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | Daring Apps, QR Codes, Gadgets, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning?


Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use.


Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!

GwynethJones's insight:

Great info! It may be nothing new to YOU - but think of those teachers who are still reluctant to engage with mobile media - this is a nice inforgraphic!
