Interactive Dust Bowl | THE DUST BOWL

Interactive Dust Bowl | THE DUST BOWL | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it
THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the 'Great Plow-Up,' followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Vivid interviews with twenty-six survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom seen movie footage, bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and equally incredible human perseverance. It is also a morality tale about our relationship to the land that sustains us—a lesson we ignore at our peril.

Six Offbeat Cloud Services That Could Change Your Life ~ Fast Company

Six Offbeat Cloud Services That Could Change Your Life ~ Fast Company | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

by Lily Hay Newman

 

"Though every cloud storage service wants to simplify and unify your digital life, it can seem like they're all just making things more fragmented. You have documents and maybe some photos in Drive, a mess of random files in Dropbox, and 7GB of music stored on an obscure cloud service that offered you a promotion once for 10GB free. If you really want to bring it all under one roof, or at least develop a cogent system for controlling the chaos, you need to make an informed choice so you get the features you want. And if you're trying to split off from the iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3 pack you have to venture out into the wild a little bit. Browse our picks below and share your favorite cloud service in the comments if you love one we missed."

5 iPad apps for the Productive 21st Century Student | iPad Insight

5 iPad apps for the Productive 21st Century Student | iPad Insight | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

"When I was at school, I struggled badly with random, un-filed bits of paper, leaky ink cartridges in my Parker Pen and terrible hand writing (as well as chronic laziness and an addiction to Cricket). I’m sure this approach to my organisation affected my school work. If I would have grown up in the iPad age I think things would have been different. The following 5 apps have been tried and tested by me and my students and rank highly as apps which work brilliantly to keep work organised in the cut and thrust of a busy school day."

This is an interesting idea. I am interested in using exit cards and plenaries as a way of checking for understanding at the close of a lesson. This post makes that digital. Some of the ideas include strategies like tweeting about the key idea, creating a vine video about it or snapping an Instagram shot.
