"This fabulous site has a library of almost 400,000 images covering every topic, and is probably the best place after FLICKR to start your search for free images.This site has a more complex image licence agreement than some of the competition, though, so read that carefully before you start."

Infographic The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teachers Who Use Technology 1. They always start with the why Technology for technology's sake is dangerous. Highly effective teachers who use technology always have a reason for using new technology tools. Whether It saves them time.

Digital Literacy Is the Key to the Future, But We Still Don't Know What It Means | WIRED | Newbie School Librarian | Scoop.it
The entrance to GitHub is the most Instagram-able lobby in tech. It's a recreation of the Oval Office, and the mimicry is spot-on---except for the rug. Instead of the arrow-clutching American eagle that graces Obama's office rug, it shows the code-sharing site's Octocat mascot gazing into the digital future, just above the motto: "In Collaboration We Trust."

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | Newbie School Librarian | Scoop.it

Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning?

 

Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use.

 

Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!
