Plain teaching can be easily enriched with a touch of online free educational tools that can make them more attractive to young learners. Turn an ordinary language lesson to a vivid learning experience for free!

               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Brilliant selection of apps - I'm looking forward to trying more of them!

Considering how integrated technology has become in even basic courses, it seems pointless to resist lest one become outdated and useless as a teacher.

OpenEd | Worlds Largest K-12 Open Educational Resources

OpenEd | Worlds Largest K-12 Open Educational Resources | Educaton | Scoop.it

OpenEd is the largest K-12 educational resource catalog, with over a million Common Core-aligned videos, games and assessments. While it integrates with all popular Learning Management Systems it offers its own simple “flipped classroom” LMS oriented to using resources.

 

It is the the only site focused on offering Common Core and other standard aligned resources, so it has many more times Common Core videos, games and assessments than any other catalog.

The time is now to sign up to these world class resources for your teaching and learning environments.

Worth spending more time looking through the resources here. I'm particularly interested in the playlists (aka curation) - selection of open resources, and sequencing from a knowledgeable trusted source.
