21 Top Presentation Tools for Teachers - More Than A Tech
For years, PowerPoint reigned supreme as presentation software of choice for just about everyone, including teachers and students. In recent years though, upstarts like Prezi showed us that there was more than one way to move through traditional slides. We complied a list of 21 of the best presentation apps for educators. Sure, you’ll see some old favorites, but we’re sure there are at least a few on this list you’ve never heard of. Everyone is looking for different features and options when creating a presentation. For that reason, we chose not to give these tools a “rank”. Animoto Animoto is geared toward making videos as opposed to traditional slide decks. Visme is similar to Canva in the sense that it is more than just a tool for creating presentations. Did we miss your favorite tool?

30+ Fun Ways to Teach The Notes Of The Staff What’s your favourite way to teach the notes of the staff? I’m a member of a number of “music teacher groups” – email discussion lists and Facebook groups which are a great way to connect with others and get answers to questions that are music-ed related. “What are your favourite ways to teach the notes of the staff?” is a common question that pops up every few months or so (sometimes every few weeks!) and everyone shares the online games, videos and apps that they use to teach or reinforce the notes of the treble and bass clef.

20 Top Pinterest Tips Are you Pinteresting? Well, lots of educators are. The PEW Research Center has found that 28 percent of online users are using Pinterest (compared to only 23 percent using Twitter). Women dominate Pinterest with 42 percent of women online using the site. With over 80 percent of teachers being women (PDF, 1.5MB), it makes sense that teachers are all over Pinterest sharing ideas for lesson plans, centers, and resources.

I am sure everyone chasing the golden calendar at the end of the rainbow has read an article or two stating how to manage time.

I am in the latter group.

Librarian Approved: 30 Ed-Tech Apps to Inspire Creativity and Creation Tool discovery is often a challenge for teachers interested in finding ways to use technology that will change the way they and their students work. With so much going on in the classroom, many teachers don’t have the time to test out various apps and find the perfect tool to meet their needs. Luckily, several tech-savvy librarians have been curating the apps their colleagues find useful and sharing the all-stars with one another through personal learning communities (PLC) and edWeb webinars. These educators are paying attention to their own working habits, as well as those of students, to figure out which technology products and trends are here to stay. Michelle Luhtala, a school librarian in New Canaan, Connecticut, has noticed that much of her own work has transitioned from the computer to her smartphone. She sees the same trend in students, but also recognizes many schools have policies against phones because they can be distractions.
