Part Sixty-Four Of The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Here’s the latest installment in my series on The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly. As you may remember, in order to make it on this list, the web tool has to:

* be easily accessible to English Language Learners and/or non-tech savvy computer users.

* allow people to create engaging content within minutes.

* host the user’s creation on the site itself indefinitely, and allow a direct link to be able to be posted on a student or teacher’s website/blog to it (or let it be embedded)."

The Graphics Fairy - Crafts: How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest

The Graphics Fairy - Crafts: How to Find the Original Source of an Image on Pinterest | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Author identified only as Karen

 

"This is a neat little trick that my son taught me. I'm sure some of you probably already know about this, but in case you didn't I think you will find it to be super handy, particularly if you are a Pinterest user! More than a few times, I've clicked on a Pinterest Pin, in order to find the instructions to an awesome Craft Tutorial, only to find that the Pin went somewhere other than the original source. If that happens to you, this is how you can find it."

- Eight ways to create screencasts and slideshares | Tech & Learning | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

By Joyce Valenza

 

"Recently I’ve been exploring the options for slide-casting and screen-casting...

 

"I’d like to begin to archive and more broadly share professional development. I’d like to offer teachers easy ways to present and archive instruction. To offer students new strategies for presentation and for archiving their work. To help me rehearse and archive my own formal presentations. And I am planning to do a little online adjuncting in the fall.

 

"And, as more schools and more individual teachers adopt the Flipped Classroom model, we will be looking for options to present content, lecture, and video as homework, so we can devote class time to more interactive and engaging collaborative learning strategies."

Helpful collection of educational apps organized by grade levels and categories

Karen E Smith's curator insight, October 25, 2014 8:57 AM

Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, October 25, 2014 10:28 AM

I really appreciate the early childhood apps. I'm gonna recommend them to my students' parents

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative - The Huffington Post

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative - The Huffington Post | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Over the past several years, the education debate in America has increasingly become a conversation about technology. As we've seen the benefit of having tablets and smartphones in our lives, we've started to pin to it our hopes for our nation's education system, as well. Recently this talk has reached something close to a fever pitch. In January, Apple announced that it would be working with major education companies (including McGraw-Hill) to develop academic titles specifically for the iPad, inspiring a wave of blog posts and tweets hopeful for education's rescue. The FCC took things one step further in March, convening a meeting in Washington with several key players with the goal of driving adoptions of digital textbooks in K-12 schools across the country.

Half an Hour: The Rise of MOOCs

Half an Hour: The Rise of MOOCs | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

What makes the MOOC offered by George Siemens and myself different was that it was a distributed course. This is what enabled the 'massive' part of 'Massive Open Online Course'. The software developed to support the course - called gRSShopper, written by myself - was designed to enable the use of open educational resources (OERs) and to aggregate student contributions nwritten using their own weblog environment (and later, discussion boards, Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, and more).
