John Dalziel's curator insight, November 20, 10:44 AM
Many educators use Google forms as their "go to" tool to create different types of quizzes, questionnaires and polls. 
Anything they create on Forms will be automatically saved to their Google Drive so they can access, view, and edit it anytime they want. 
For something different... 
FlipQuiz is a web tool that allows Educators to easily create gameshow-style boards for test reviews within learning environments.  
All boards created can be saved for later use. 
Educators can also share their boards up on-screen and have learners work on them collaboratively. 
Watch the demo at https://flipquiz.me/demo to see what the gameshow-style board looks like. 
The final plus - It's FREE! 
NOTE: There is the option to upgrade to FlipQuiz PRO - charges, for the upgrade, can be paid monthly or yearly.

Ordinary magic for the digital age

Ordinary magic for the digital age | ESafety and Digital Citizenship | Scoop.it
Parent Zone's latest research examines the role of digital resilience in protecting children online and asks 'is it time to rethink parental controls on your child's device?'
Llandrillo Library's insight:
70% of children aged five to 15 have access to a tablet, while 40% of five to 15s and 80% of 12 to 15s have a mobile phone.[1] It’s becoming more likely that a child’s internet use will happen via one of these portable devices, which means that each child - however diligent their parents have been about filtering and monitoring at home – is only as safe as their least-protected friend. Filtering, monitoring and parental controls might protect a child on their own device, in the safety of their own home, but there’s no guarantee that their experiences with the internet at a friend’s or in the playground will be equally protected.
