A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought | Techie Brekkie Rumblings | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago, we shared 11 sample BYOT policies http://bit.ly/19pF4WW to help you create your own.

 

Unlike some learning tools, BYOT resources have to be diverse because of the inherently flexible nature of BYOT. What works for one school or district may not for another.

 

Another challenge for educators looking for BYOT “stuff” is that what you’re finding is likely scattered all over the internet. Which makes the handbook of BYOT “stuff” that convergemag.com created (and grabonlee is hosting) all the more helpful. In it you’ll find 10 checklists for creating–or simply checking–your BYOT plan, covering the following topics."

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning | Techie Brekkie Rumblings | Scoop.it

"Concept-mapping–or mind-mapping, idea-mapping, or some other variation that makes sense to you–is the practice of demonstrating the relationship between ideas in a map-like form.

 

Concept-mapping allows creators to articulate nuance, context, and interdependence between ideas in a very user-centered way. This makes them especially useful in education, whether you use them for pre-writing, research notes, or “back-mapping” a unit or unit assessment. They encourage macro-thinking, can provide a bridge to struggling writers who have trouble turning their thinking into prose, and are a powerful tool for visual learning."
