My 35 Favorite Free Apps for Teaching Schools around the country are undergoing a digital transformation. With iPads and tablets showing up in classrooms with greater frequency, trying to figure out which apps to use can leave a teacher’s head spinning. Last year, when my school debuted an iPad lab, I was thrilled, but as it turned out, I barely used it. I shied away from this new technology (which is definitely not like me!) because I honestly had no idea how to make the most of the iPads in my daily lessons. Oh, what a difference a year makes! Over the past year, I have found several great educational apps that I integrate into my teaching on a regular basis. Please note that since the publication of this blog post, two of the apps, Shake-a-Phrase and Stack the States, are no longer free, but are low cost and still useful tools. With nearly a million apps available, I know there are other great ones out there.

Kahoot - Create Quizzes and Surveys Your Students Can Answer on Any Device Kahoot is a new service for delivering online quizzes and surveys to your students. The premise of Kahoot is similar to that of Socrative and Infuse Learning. On Kahoot you create a quiz or survey that your students respond to through any device that has a web browser (iPad, Android device, Chromebook). Your Kahoot questions can include pictures and videos. As the teacher you can control the pace of the Kahoot quiz or survey by imposing a time limit for each question. As students answer questions they are awarded points for correct answers and the timeliness of their answers. Applications for Education Students do not need to have a Kahoot account in order to participate in your activities. theclassroomblog - Examples of Classroom Blogs Here is a great list of classroom blogs organized by grade level and subject area: Examples of Educational Blogs: District Blogs: TechDossier- Middle and High School blog written by Patrick Higgins, Angela Davis, Brad Davis, Mike Gregory, Erica Hartman, Patrick Chodkiewicz, and Cathy WilleHyPE 2.0: Physical Education and Health blog written by Cathy Wille.The ITClassroom: Erica Hartman's blog about her classroom and her use of technology within it.

The 20 Most Popular Learning Management Systems One of the most under-reported mechanics of any blended learning or eLearning environment is the learning management system (LMS). The infographic below lists the 20 most popular LMSs. It’s unclear exactly what the criteria were for selection, and by now the results are probably a bit different seeing how it was crated in late fall 2012 and the internet reinvents itself every 3 weeks. Nonetheless, it’s a great place to start looking at what’s out there. We’ll have more on LMSs in the near future.

UX to LX: The Rise of Learner Experience Design The term “user experience” or “UX” wasn’t always an overused Silicon Valley buzzword. Coined in the mid ‘90s by Don Norman, while he was vice president of advanced technology at Apple, it refers to an abstract way to describe the relationship between a product and a human. Back then, Norman argued that technology must evolve to put user needs first—the opposite of how things were done at the time. It wasn’t until 2005 that UX gained mainstream relevance: 42 million iPods were sold that year and the mass market experienced great design at scale. Not long after, run-of-the-mill software engineers—once in high demand—weren’t as competitive in the job market. Instructional design is now approaching a similar transition. Parse higher-education job postings and descriptions, and it’s evident that LX design is, as a discipline, among the fastest growing fields in education.
