What's Hot, What's Not in 2016 -- THE Journal - 0 views

  •  
    "The four panelists in THE Journal's annual end-of-year survey hit full consensus on just two of 11 topics - giving the "hot" label unanimously to "blended learning" and "student data privacy concerns." Meanwhile, e-portfolios garnered the least amount of enthusiasm, with two panelists opting for "losing steam" and two for "lukewarm." Other topics formed a mixed bag, with the "lukewarm" rating suggesting that many technologies/techniques are holding steady, if not exactly lighting the education world on fire."

The advanced Google searches every student should know | eSchool News | eSchool News - 0 views

  •  
    "Did he seriously just ask that? How old is this guy?" Well yes, I recently seriously just asked a group of students if they knew how to search Google. And yes, the students got a good laugh from my question.

    "Of course I know how to use Google," I have been told by every student to whom I have asked the question.

    "Really? Let's see. This won't take long," I promise."

Green Screen + iPad = Magic Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - 0 views

  •  
    "We are very excited to have Jennifer Garcia joining us as our special guest presenter on Saturday, October 17, for her presentation: "Green Screens + iPads = iMagic!" She will be sharing projects her students have done using green screens on the iPads with DoInk's Green Screen App. We'll get a guided tour of the entire process including setup, equipment, apps, workflow, assessment strategies and possible issues to be aware of. We'll also get to see a few examples of her student work and have access to the online lessons she created to help you in building your own projects. We'll also get to see some examples from other teachers along with their resources. This will be most beneficial to teachers who have access to iPads in their classrooms, but it's always exciting to learn about tools, apps and the possibilities for enhancing digital story telling with any tools you may have access to and we would welcome participants willing to share the tools and project examples for digital storytelling projects you are using in your classrooms."

What's the point of Snapchat, and how does it work? - Pocket-lint - 0 views

  •  
    "You have probably heard about Snapchat, the mobile app that allows users to send videos and pictures that self destruct after a few seconds.

    Snapchat is a fun messaging application for sharing moments. You can take a photo or a video, add a caption or doodle, and send it to a friend or add it to your story to share with some or all of your friends. Friends can view snaps for up to 10 seconds, and then it disappears."

Tech Tip: Solving the "How to" dilemma | SmartBlogs SmartBlogs - 0 views

  •  
    "At some point we have all had to provide "How to" instructions to friends and colleagues on navigating a website, sharing a document, or on the latest tech tip. You may have tried listing the directions. You may have been a little more adventurous and taken screenshots and added some arrows to help the user see where they should go and what they should click. You may have even combined the two methods. Somehow, you still face the dilemma of not being sure your friend or colleague fully understood what to do."

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Search for Publicly Shared Google Docs, Slides, an... - 0 views

  •  
    " Searching by file type and searching by domains is a great way for students to refine their Google searches. Searching for and within a DOC, a PPT, or XLS file can lead students to resources that they might not otherwise have seen. But increasingly a lot of us are creating our documents, slides, and spreadsheets in Google Drive. Many of us are then publishing those files for anyone in the world to see. Thanks to the Google for Education Google+ page, today I was reminded that you can perform a Google search to look for publicly shared Docs, Slides, and Spreadsheets. The screenshots below illustrate how to do this."

How To Cite Social Media In Scholarly Writing - 0 views

  •  
    "Back in 2012, we shared how to cite a tweet. We followed that up with how to cite an app. So when we saw the very useful teachbytes graphic above making some noise on pinterest on several different popular #edtech websites, it reminded us of the constant demands changing technologies place on existing ways we do business.

    When and in what contexts it makes sense to cite social media content is probably a more relevant post than sharing a graphic that simply shows the format, but they're both nice to have, yes?

    Citation Style

    Of course, citation style matters, and the two most popular are the APA and MLA.

    The APA (American Psychological Association) has their rules for citing social media in academic writing. They even have a thorough ($12) guide to clarify the process, while the MLA (Modern Language Association), as far as we can tell, has yet to expressly address apps and social media as anything other than "software."

    And to an extent, this makes sense. As media becomes more nuanced, new modalities emerge, authors use new channels to distribute their thinking-and even as the "crowd" becomes a legitimate source of information (see wikipedia, twitter, erc.), new rules for governing that reality will continue to emerge. The more general those rules are, the less reactive governing bodies will have to be moment by moment."

How To Attribute Creative Commons Photos | Foter Blog - 0 views

  •  
    "According to our research, more than 90% of Creative Commons photos are not attributed at all. To make matters worse, less than 10% of the photos that do credit the original work are attributed properly. This means that more than 99% of Creative Commons photos are not adequately attributed.

    Not without pride, we are happy to notice that most of the bloggers using Foter.com attribute CC photos properly, which is greatly facilitated by our "ready to paste" attribution info. Every time they intend to use a searched image, all they need to do is copy the image and the accompanying attribution details into their blogs.

    Most is not enough, though. People often find CC photos on various sites and wonder how to attribute them. In order to help you, our team prepared a comprehensive infographic that reflects interesting research findings, gives details of Creative Commons licenses and illustrates how to properly attribute CC photos.

    We do hope it will contribute to the overall quality of posted materials and promote respect for copyright owners."

48 iPad Apps That High School and College Students Love - 0 views

  •  
    "Staff Writ­ers from OnlineColleges.com wrote an arti­cle that I thought I would share with you. They noted, "While the lap­top remains the tech tool of choice for most high school and col­lege stu­dents, many are embrac­ing portable and inno­v­a­tive tablets like the iPad. Since its release in 2010, the iPad has taken the tech mar­ket by storm and become a pop­u­lar, edu­ca­tional and fun tool for both teach­ers and stu­dents alike. It is increas­ingly infil­trat­ing col­lege edu­ca­tion, with some schools en offer­ing free iPads for enrollees.""

6 Free Tools to Convert Youtube Videos to MP3 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning - 0 views

  •  
    Now that mobile devices are ubiquitous, some people still find it hard to download their favourite music or audio files. This is due to the fact that most of the portable devices do not support some of the video formats available online now. As a solution , here is a list of some of the best free tools you can use to convert Youtube videos into MP3. You might ask me why Youtube and not other video platforms. The answer is quite obvious, Youtube is number 1 video resource for internet users according to the latest statistics in this field. I also opted for Youtube because most of educators use it as a resource and it would be great if they can now convert some of its content to MP3 to embed in their mobile devices for sharing with their colleagues or students.
