Goofram - Google and Wolfram Alpha Side by Side Goofram is a mash-up of Google Search and Wolfram Alpha search. Enter your search term(s) into Goofram and it will display relevant results drawn from Google and Wolfram Alpha. Goofram really shines when you're searching for information about a topic that could potentially have a lot of numerical information as well as text-based information. For example, when I searched using the phrase, "first person to climb Mount Everest," the result was a column of links, generated by Google, to articles about Mount Everest and a column of statistical information, generated by Wolfram Alpha, about Mount Everest. (click the image below to see my Goofram results page). Applications for EducationGoofram could be a good resource for science and mathematics students conducting online research.

The No.1 App for Every Teacher…. | dedwards.me Not all apps are created equal. The first version of Explain Everything was good. The second version is outstanding. As an educator my life revolves around learning, organisation, workflow and school requirements. Lessons are delivered, work is assessed and data is recorded. Thankfully new technologies are providing ways of coping with the increasing demands. At its base level Explain Everything is an interactive whiteboard into which you can insert text, pictures and videos. An existing presentation can be imported into the app from a Dropbox or GoogleDrive account. Similarly a teacher can record anything that happens in class, via the camera, and then annotate/comment on the work. (courtesy of Digital First Ohio State) As you can see from the ‘how to’ video there are a number of different functions in the new version of Explain Everything that lend themselves to the classroom. Explain Everything can also have an impact on assessment. Like this: Like Loading...
