You know what else teachers like? Good quality tools that are free! And why not? Funds are limited and free is totally affordable! This week on EmergingEdTech, we’ve put together a listing of 20 top notch free tools that are being used in schools and classrooms to collaborate and interact on assignments, projects, and other active learning efforts. These tools deliver a wide array of functionality, from communication to collaborative document editing, whiteboards, and gaming, to full Learning Management System capabilities. 1.

Individuals in design teams don't always work together in the same office. You may be positioned in distributed groups, or working from home, and clients can come from all over the world. This is where collaboration tools come in – they make it easier and faster for designers to get feedback and approve artwork in a professional manner, and they come in all sort of forms, from free Android apps to Chrome extensions.

Here at all collaboration happens online. We started the blog while living in 3 different countries, and all this time we have managed to work together perfectly, even without seeing each other for a long time. Since the initial launch of we had to get used to working together remotely, using only free online collaboration tools.

These tools not only allow us to work from 3 different locations, but also to be more productive and stay organised. Nowadays, more and more teams/companies are forced to work together remotely. But switching from a regular day-to-day work-flow to a complex and expensive project management software is very difficult to do. Have you ever struggled to successfully collaborate online with your clients or suppliers? Do you need a piece of software that would help your team and/or the management to work more efficiently and effectively?

Which Collaboration Tools Should You Use? 1. Dropbox, of course, also offers an enterprise solution. 2. How to Champion the Four C’s in the Classroom. The flood of edtech tools that teachers are presented with has been staggering over the last several years, and continues to be this way. A quick glance on Twitter or any edtech conference program shows this. In fact, just typing “edtech industry” into a Google search can show the magnitude of the edtech business world. In my experience, edtech tools tend to revolve around the 4Cs of 21st century skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking. I would argue that there is not “one tool to rule them all” in education. (In fact, looking for one of those is like looking for a unicorn. While it’s great to have so many choices, this is also what can hold a teacher back from trying something new in their classroom—especially if the tool is cumbersome or does not show meaningful purpose in students’ learning.

And so, let’s start by looking at strategies educators can try when exploring new edtech tools. What Educators Should Do Experiment What Companies Should Do. Teachers' Use of Primary Sources. To what extent do history/social studies teachers use primary sources in their classrooms? What impact has the availability of Web-based primary sources had on their practice? To find out, David Hicks and Peter Doolittle of Virginia Tech University and John K. Lee of Georgia State University surveyed 158 high school history teachers. Their study revealed that even though most teachers used primary sources, there was no consensus about how to use such documents. Historical Information vs. It is well known that primary sources are important for teaching historical thinking skills. . . . documents are used to enrich a textbook account or to help students focus on essential facts and concepts.

Text vs. the Web Many of the teachers surveyed were unfamiliar with several well-developed and notable digital resource centers. . . . most had never used videos or photographs available from internet resources, primarily because they were unsure how to find them. Obstacles and Dilemmas In the Classroom. 10 Ways to Use Pinterest in the Classroom. Due to the popularity of my post Pinterest – Turning Procrastination into Classroom Preparation, I’ve decided to follow up with ways to use Pinterest with students. When using Pinterest, keep in mind that not all pins are safe and secure, and monitoring will be necessary to ensure students don’t stumble upon inappropriate content. Nonetheless, Pinterest provides some creative opportunities in the classroom, and could be a great method for instruction, collaboration, and classroom projects.

Here are 10 ways to use Pinterest with your students, including some example boards online: CLASSROOM MUSIC BOARD – if you ever play music while students work or write, create a board where students can pin their favorite songs and artists so you can use their favorite music in class (remember to check to make sure their suggestions are language and theme appropriate first!) Hope these 10 ways can help you incorporate Pinterest into your classroom! Like this: Like Loading... Related.

Words: Sarah James and the Creative Bloq staff Liked this? Digital skolutveckling pågår! - En årskrönika. För ungefär ett år sedan gick jag på min nya tjänst som digital utvecklingsledare på Fjällenskolan. Jag fick ett övergripande uppdrag: Lyft skolans digitala utveckling Nu är det slutet av juni. Lärare och elever har gått på sommarlov och vi i skolledningen håller som bäst på att knyta ihop säcken. Jag scrollar igenom arbetslagens gemensamma utvärderingar, ämnesutvärderingar och elevutvärderingar.

Det som slår mig, och som för mig både glad och stolt, är att den digitala utvecklingen lyfts fram som en framgångsfaktor av både lärare som elever! Man vill i hög grad koppla den digitala utvecklingen till såväl goda resultat som lust och motivation till arbetet! En sak är säker; det krävs massor av utvecklingsbenägna människor på flera olika nivåer för att få till en positiv digital utveckling på en skola.

According to many in the educational technology business, it’s using online video to deliver lectures to students and personalize the learning process. However, if you read the work of education researchers, the flipped class model is more about promoting active learning in class, in pursuit of higher-level, critical thinking skills. So which is it? I’d rather not get into the business of erecting fences and proclaiming who is in and who is out. However, it is important to correct misinformation and expose marketing claims masquerading as pedagogical philosophy, so that thoughtful teachers can make wise choices as we plan for the upcoming academic year. Following are six common misconceptions about the flipped classroom, and my attempts to correct them based on peer-reviewed research and several years’ experience flipping my own classes.

Most teachers who make video lectures for their students post them to a streaming video site. 16 weeks ago 16 weeks ago. FULLTEXT01.pdf. SAMRABriefContextualizedIntroduction.
