Drop an Emoji on it! –

Drop an Emoji on it! – | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Increase student engagement and provide students an opportunity to CREATE using emojis! 

Incorporating emojis while allowing students to create something isn’t limited to this single math assignment. There are soooo many possibilities! My first thoughts for emoji prompts that enhance learning include:

  • Explain the water cycle using at least 5 emojis
  • Create a math problem using 2 or more emojis
  • Tell a story using at least 10 emojis (you might read a rebus story to your students first so they get the idea)

Moving Beyond the “Cool” Factor in Mobile Learning

Moving Beyond the “Cool” Factor in Mobile Learning | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Spread the loveNote: The following post comes to us courtesy of Mike Broderick, Co-Founder & CEO, Turning Technologies. According to a Pew Internet survey on mobile device use, 35% of Americans age 16 and up own a tablet. K-12 districts, universities and corporate learning programs are also driving the tablet trend, with some purchasing iPads and other tablets to replace textbooks and expand education capabilities with the hardware students already use to communicate and access entertainment. But the experiment doesn’t always proceed as planned. A plan to distribute iPads to more than 30,000 Los Angeles students hit a speed bump …

ISTE | Edtech playground: Helping teachers choose better tools | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

A virtual reality headset can take students on an immersive journey to another world. History students can tour ancient Rome, science students can travel to another biome, and biology students can explore the inside of the human body. But no matter how cool it is, if that $3,000 piece of equipment enters a classroom and doesn’t provide any real instructional value, it can quickly become a very expensive paperweight.

44 Popular Superintendent & Teacher Approved EdTech Resources | Center for Effective School Practices

44 Popular Superintendent & Teacher Approved EdTech Resources | Center for Effective School Practices | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Finding a suitable edtech tool without any references is like grasping for straws. Online reviews of edtech tools tend to focus on technical features with little mention of how teachers can apply each product to the classroom. This can make the process of deciding on an edtech solution overwhelming for new and established teachers alike. To address this challenge, local NJ superintendent Nicholas Diaz (@nicholasadiaz) presented edtech tools favored by teachers in his district, and called on educators in the audience to share their favorite edtech tools with the greater community.  We’ve created flashcards for each edtech tool recommended by the NJ teachers and school leaders who participated. It is our hope that teachers consult them when deciding which edtech tool to try next.
