5 Tools Students Can Use to Keep Track of Assignments This Year While I appreciate services like Remind and WhatsDue for sending reminders to students about upcoming assignments, I also think it is important for students to take ownership of keeping track of their assignments. As we start the new school year many students will be looking for tools that can help them keep track of assignments. Here is a selection of tools that I've used and or my students have used over the years. Strike App is a simple to-do list creation and management tool.

The Educators’ Guide to Infographics Sometimes when you’re compiling your content for your next blog post you find that, to get your point across, you have to cover a lot of facts and figures, statistics, or tabular information, and it’s really tricky to put into words.

Then, wouldn’t it be great if it was all in one image that you could share to other people, or even print to stick on the wall of your classroom?
Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices. The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same. What attracts my attention more than anything else in this program are the two lists of core apps curated for both teachers and students. As soon as I saw the titles included in these lists I knew from my own experience in reviewing educational apps that these could be a very good start for anyone of you out there trying to incorporate iPad in your teaching.
What’s so great about Google Drive? And why should my students use it? I have fallen in love with Google Drive. But it was not love at first sight. Our relationship was slow to get started.

You think he’s okay looking, but you don’t really pay much attention to him. 微軟免費 Office 整合 Google 瀏覽器，雲端管理文件更方便 以往如果要開啟或編輯 Office 文件，必須在電腦上安裝 Office 相關軟體，不過微軟去年推出 Office Mobile 應用程式後，已經能從手機、平板電腦來編輯文件，甚至在沒有安裝 Office 的情況下，也能直接從雲端開啟 Word、Excel、PowerPoint。目前支援的管道越來越多樣，這也表示使用者無論在任何情境、任何裝置下，皆能用 Office 來編輯文件，與你的工作或生活完全整合。 今天，微軟於 Chrome 線上商店推出 Office Online for Chrome 擴充功能，嚴格來說它並不是一個獨立應用程式，比較像是 Google 的「Office Editing for Docs, Sheets & Slides」擴充功能，將現有的雲端服務整合到瀏覽器中。 我們都知道微軟已提供 Office Online，登入後可在雲端使用 Word、Excel、PowerPoint、Sway 和 OneNote 等應用服務。當使用者安裝 Office Online 瀏覽器外掛，還能直接從工具列快速開啟你本機或保存於 OneDrive 的文件，或是快速建立任何類型的 Office 檔案，將文件同步於所有裝置，無論你的電腦上有無安裝 Office。 擴充功能資訊

Book Review: Practical Ways to Spark Student Creativity in Our Classrooms by Cathy Gassenheimer “Wonder is a powerful word to use with students, and it is a great way to access imagination.” Thus begins one of 40 “Grab and Go Ideas” interspersed in a new ASCD book, Sparking Student Creativity: Practical Ways to Promote Innovative Thinking and Problem Solving, by Patti Drapeau. Students who think creatively, Drapeau says: • Express ideas other students don't think of. • Like to choose their own way of demonstrating understanding. • Ask questions that may seem off-topic or silly. • Enjoy open-ended assignments. • Prefer to discuss ideas rather than facts. • Prefer to try new ways of approaching a problem rather than accepted ways.
