Apps That Rise to the Top: Tested and Approved By Teachers. Michelle Luhtala/Edshelf With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold.

Apps That Rise to the Top: Tested and Approved By Teachers

Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of apps voted on by educators around the country. “I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. 30Hands allows a user to make pictures, annotate them, record a voice explainer and then packages it all into a video. Adobe Voice is a recently released education product from Adobe that allows students to narrate a story over an array of digital images. Tellagami is a tool to share quick animated messages. ExplainEverything is another tool for creating video like tutorials.

SAS® Curriculum Pathways® Daqri's 4D Cubes Use Augmented Reality To Teach Kids The Periodic Table Of Elements. The worst part of high school?

Daqri's 4D Cubes Use Augmented Reality To Teach Kids The Periodic Table Of Elements

Most kids might say having to read The Scarlet Letter, or puberty. (I enjoyed both, thank you very much.) But arguably the most boring aspect was memorizing the periodic table--and all its damn elements, symbols, and atomic numbers. Now one Los Angeles company plans to spice up the periodic table, Hollywood-style. Today augmented-reality startup Daqri unveiled Elements 4D, a set of interactive blocks that aims to help students learn the properties of hydrogen and oxygen in a more visual, educational, and entertaining way.

Elements 4D combines physical and digital experiences. The most clever and fun part of the service is that these element blocks can be combined, enabling students to witness chemical reactions in real time. Certainly, it's a novel approach to teaching kids the periodic table. Still, Elements 4D is no doubt a refreshing approach to learning the periodic table. [Images Courtesy of Daqri] Pick Me! Pick Me!

Audience Response Systems. Learn About The Phases Of The Moon. World Sunlight Map. Watch the sun rise and set all over the world on this real-time, computer-generated illustration of the earth's patterns of sunlight and darkness.

World Sunlight Map

The clouds are updated daily with current weather satellite imagery. The Mercator projection used here is one way of looking at the spherical earth as a flat map. Used since the 16th century for navigation, straight lines on this map can be used accurately as compass bearings but the size and shape of continents are distorted. Compare this with Peters, Mollweide or equirectangular projection maps. Also available is a semi-realistic view of dawn and dusk from far above the Earth, a look at the moon, and information about how this works.
