Children's search engines; 13 reviewed and assessed Introduction When searching the internet - particularly with children in mind, it's important to ensure that you can feel safe with what they are doing, and where they are going. There are a fair number of child friendly search engines available - at least, that's what they call themselves, so I decided to take a look at them to see what I thought of them. I wanted to get through a lot fairly quickly, so these are just my personal impressions, and I would strongly advise you to check through them yourselves to see if you think that they are appropriate (or not) for your own children. I choose a few terms that I was keen on trying out - ‘dogging’ which is a British term (I believe) for a certain type of sexual practice that generally takes place in car parks, blue tits - for obvious reasons, and schoolgirl - again for obvious reasons. Several engines use a variant of Google search with the safe search function on, so I thought it was best to try that first. Dib Dab Doo and Dilly too...
Open education materials for pre-Kindergarten to high school students I am a community moderator for opensource.com as well as a mother, a librarian, and a former public school teacher. When I began writing for this site over two years ago, it was due to my son's education and how both private and public schools were largely neglecting digital technology, global citizenship, and digital literacy. What I have discovered since exploring open source materials for children and teens is astonishing. Open source materials: where? A. Use the key search terms: teacher AND free AND resources 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Expand your search outside your local area, state, province, or country and the amount of free and open educational materials only increases. Note the line between what is considered open source and what is not is often gray for non open source purists. B. C. 1. 2.

OERs provide teaching and learning materials that are freely available and offered online for anyone to use. Whether you’re an instructor, student, or self-learner, you have access to full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, assignments, quizzes, activities, games, simulations, and tools to create these components. While some OERs include OpenCourseWare (OCW) or other educational materials, they may also offer the means to alter those courses through editing, adding to those courses through publication, and the ability to shape the tools that share those resources. Additionally, they may maintain forums or other platforms where individuals can collaborate on building educational tools and documentation and the reach for those materials. This list is not all-inclusive, as resources that offer limited collaboration were excluded.
50 Of The Best Teaching And Learning Apps For 2016 50 Of The Best Teaching And Learning Apps For 2016 by TeachThought Staff What are the best teaching and learning apps for 2016? That’s a good question this post looks to answer. Every year, we put together a collection of what we believe are the best teaching and learning apps for that year. (Here, for example, is our 2015 version of the list below, where you will notice about half the apps are the same, and half have changed. This year, we were asked by the good folks at Easelly (the infographic and visual data platform) to create a collection of resources that while including their apps, would curate a lot of good stuff teachers would benefit from in 2016. Additionally, Easelly has created a free eBook–How to Use Easel.ly in your Classroom–which is a useful tool for teachers integrating Common Core standards, for example, which call for students to work with different mediums to extract key ideas and data.
