5 Terrific Mind Mapping Apps for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educator Professional Development | Scoop.it

"Today I am sharing with you a set of great  apps to visually capture your ideas and share them with others. The apps below are designed to enable you to easily create mindmaps and concepts to illustrate abstract topics and enhance learning.

The apps I am including below are selected based on their powerful performance and practical usablity. I know there are tons of other similar apps in the iTunes app store but the ones I handpicked for you below are ideal for educational settings and I would also recommend them for students."

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed

Lack of faculty time and training limits digital learning more than resistance does, study finds | Inside Higher Ed | Educator Professional Development | Scoop.it
A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

A Beginner’s Guide to Bringing #Coding Into the Classroom (EdSurge News)

A Beginner’s Guide to Bringing #Coding Into the Classroom (EdSurge News) | Educator Professional Development | Scoop.it
Computer science is a primary driver of the U.S. economy, yet it does not (yet) play a significant role in K-12 education. Did you know that only 27 states allow students to count computer science courses toward high school graduation? But there’s a way schools can help--by getting involved in Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek).

CSEdWeek and Hour of Code arrive December 7-13th, and this annual event is bigger than ever. Below, you will find a resource guide for CSEdWeek and Hour of Code, in order to help all of you K-12 educators bring coding into the classroom.

I love that the first tip is to think in terms of function. New and shiny doesn't necessarily equate to better. I also love the idea of letting students lead the way and be comfortable with regular experimentation. This is an excellent article to share with teachers whether they are newbies or seasoned veterans to teaching with technology.
