This is evidenced by the listening standards found in the Common Core and also the integral role listening plays in collaboration and communication, two of the four Cs of 21st century learning.

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 50 Math Sites and Apps | Technology and Learning | Scoop.it

"Throughout the last few years I've compiled quite a few lists of my favorite sites for a variety of subjects.  Over the last year and a half one might have noticed that my lists have started to change and instead of focusing on sites I've been focusing more on apps as "mobile learning" has really taken off.  It seems now a days a person can find an app for almost anything.  Specializing in Ed Tech I review sites/apps all the time and decided to start posting my favorites for different subjects.  Below are my favorites for Math."

How Deductive Thinking Can Drive Student-Designed Research - TeachThought | Technology and Learning | Scoop.it

"I specialize in an odd subject—research. I teach students to select a subject area, pick a topic, craft a question, design a prospectus, follow through on the plans, adapt to obstacles and “interesting” findings, organize results, and create an appropriate outcome that matches the content and methodology of the project. Many teachers call me crazy for loving this process; teaching skills regardless of content seems difficult and abstract or too chaotic and uncontrollable. I think it’s fun."

Google drive really helps to shorten your working day. It cuts down the number of email you have to send. I keeps everything in memory so accessible from any time any where...And what is most important for many of us, might save you from the frequent: "I lost my portable hard drive"

8 Apps To Turn Your iPad Into A Digital Whiteboard - TeachThought

8 Apps To Turn Your iPad Into A Digital Whiteboard - TeachThought | Technology and Learning | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re interesting in blending, flipping, personalizing, or differentiating your classroom, technology can be a huge help. Technology gives students direct access to content, which frees the teacher up for other roles

 

iPads function exceptionally well in this capacity, and one of their talents is to function as a digital whiteboard. Whether you want to lead an in-person class through the iPad screen, or you need remote access to eLearners or others in a school-to-school program, you’ve got options. Below are 8 apps (with various strengths and weaknesses–the only way to know if they truly fit your needs is to try them, unfortunately) that can help you blend and flip your classroom–or just give students more direct access to you, one another, and the content."
