12 Digital Tools to Try in 2018. There are so many digital tools available today that offer opportunities for promoting student creativity, student voice, and expanding where and how students learn.

12 Digital Tools to Try in 2018

I had my own list of the tools that I found made a big difference in my classroom, but decided to ask students for their input. Here is a list of tools to try in 2018. Each of these offer multiple ways for students to create, connect and engage in more authentic learning experiences. Promoting Connected Learners We were able to take our learning to a whole new level this year through Project Based Learning (PBL). 1) Edmodo: Virtual learning space, where teachers can set up a digital classroom to connect students with the resources they need, in a safe learning environment. 2) Flipgrid: Video response tool, which became one of the most talked about tools this past year after launching new features, making it even easier and more fun for students to share their ideas.

They force students to see contexts; to make critical decisions about relative importance; to make connections among people, events and movements; to visualize history and processes; to discover patterns and sequences; to examine cause and effect; and to juxtapose content from across disciplines and media. We now have a seriously growing array of tools to help us build timelines with learners to support that kind of mind work. History in Motion: Founder Paul Cashman describes his goals as: to improve the teaching, learning, and experiencing of history for everyone from grade-school students to lifelong build a Wikipedia-like community of history enthusiasts who create, exchange, and discuss historical scenarios.

History in Motion allows users to create multimedia scenarios that move through space and time. Google Earth Tour Builder. DocsTeach. Turn your students into historians with primary-source based activities.


Provide them the unique web address for an activity, or compile a Classroom full of activities. Each activity-creation tool helps students develop historical thinking skills. Pick documents, set up the activity, and write instructions for your students. You can include questions or an assignment in your conclusion. 5 Websites That Will Revolutionize Your Math Teaching. 4 Great Equation Tools for Math Teachers and Students. June 29, 2015 Here are four excellent Chrome apps specifically curated for Math teachers and students.

4 Great Equation Tools for Math Teachers and Students

These apps are ideal for writing, editing and viewing math formula whether they are simple or complex. One of these tools, TeX equation editor, is integrated with Google Drive so you can easily paste TeX equations right into your Google Docs. 1- Daum Equation Edior 'Edit the formula in this program is designed to quickly and easily. In the editor that provides many types of formulas with just the click of a button you can create a formula. 'This is a fast equation editor/viewer that allows you to type equations quickly using helpful shortcuts and see them as you do. 3- TeX Equation Editor ‘You can generate an image of a mathematical formula using the TeX(or LaTeX) language.This is useful for displaying complex formulas on your web page.

Pattern Shapes by the Math Learning Center. HyperPhysics Concepts. About HyperPhysics Rationale for Development HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network.

The bottom bar of each card contains links to major concept maps for divisions of physics, plus a "go back" feature to allow you to retrace the path of an exploration. Part of the intent for this exploration environment is to provide many opportunities for numerical exploration in the form of active formuli and standard problems implemented in Javascript. New content for HyperPhysics will be posted as it is developed. A resource that was initiated as a resource for local high school physics teachers whom I had taught has expanded into an intensively used website worldwide.
