"Tech Tools for learning, teaching, connecting, collaborating, playing and creating online. – Not in logical order quite yet and continually growing…

@mwa6een No problem at all :-) I am behind in my updates on my tools page http://t.co/mnLzZvhwq1 You have reminded me to get that done"

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Nice list of Tech tools-SlideRocket looks like BrainShark which I think is a great way to add audio to slides and videos. I also like Medium-short stories/phrases on topics that matter to you. And Layar looks interesting-makes print media clickable. Plus Jamie links to Thinglink, Crowdmap, Storify, Visual.ly, Learnist, Paper.li and of course Scoop.it!

Redefining learning with iPads - Innovate My School

Redefining learning with iPads - Innovate My School | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
The fatal mistake schools make when deploying mobile technology is thinking that by purchasing the hardware, that’s the hard part done. In fact, the easiest step in a school’s iPad journey is buying the technology; the successful use of the technology is determined by what schools do after this.

The instructor uses the SAMR model and  provides examples of how he uses MineCraft PE app on iPad, app Panorama 360 Citiesprogram Airserver, and app Thinglink with students.
