Best EdTech of 2017

Best EdTech of 2017 | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
The editorial staff at Common Sense Education evaluated and rated approximately 180 tools for learning potential in 2017, and all we can say is that it was a great year for edtech. Some years it's hard to select the most engaging and supportive tools for students, teachers, and schools. But as we looked back at a year that was divisive in so many ways, we had no trouble narrowing down our top picks to the 25 best apps, games, and websites. What you'll find on this list are tools that get students to develop a true love of writing, engage in authentic scientific practices, collaborate across the globe, and make incredibly artistic and technical creations; you'll even find a couple of tools just for the teacher. As you look down the list and notice how many five-star tools we rated this year, you'll begin to see how thoughtful design that empowers students and uplifts teachers really makes a win-win for all. Interested in seeing our past winners? Check out the archive of our favorites from 2013-2016.

I Want to Teach Forever: Easy Ways to Incorporate Tablets into the Classroom

I Want to Teach Forever: Easy Ways to Incorporate Tablets into the Classroom | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Technology is changing education in some exciting ways, particularly for kindergarten and high school students. eBooks and eReaders, which are already proven to be an effective learning tool for undergraduate and masters degree students, are now being implemented in many primary school classrooms across the country. As a result, students who previously carried heavy backpacks full of large textbooks are now able to lighten the load by carrying all of their textbooks on a tablet. Similarly, teachers are able to teach children more effectively and provide information in new and exciting ways. As more schools realize the value of utilizing tablets in the classroom, more children and teachers will enjoy the benefits of this innovative device.
