5 Things You Need to Know About Your iPhone's Photos App - 2 views

  •  
    "Apple's Photos app saw some changes in iOS 8, and more changes are coming when iCloud Photo Library launches soon. Did you know that your photos app keeps copies of photos you've deleted?

    The Photos app isn't as complex as Apple's new Health app, but it still has some features you might not discover unless you go looking for them. For example, it can hide your private photos."

3 Reasons Why You Should Share and 3 Things You can Do to Start Sharing | Langwitches Blog - 4 views

  •  
    "I am back on my soapbox…

    …because I continue to see great things happening in classrooms, but get blank stares, when I ask, if these things are being shared beyond the school building.
    …because I watch as administrators feel the need to "protect" their faculty from "one more thing to do".
    …because I continue to hear fear of transparency, competition, privacy and technology skills and tech phobia.
     Setting up my soapbox to raise awareness of the "moral imperative of sharing" for teachers (Dean Shareski) goes back to his keynote in 2010 at the K-12 Online Conference. Since then I have stepped on that soapbox via my blog and at conferences advocating for the IMPORTANCE and NECESSITY of sharing."

5 Things Students Want to Tell Their Writing Teachers - Brilliant or Insane - 2 views

  •  
    "Some writing teachers are a whole lot better writers than they are listeners. The more experience I gain as a teacher of writing, the less confident I am about what I think I know. If someone had clued me into this reality when I began teaching over twenty years ago, I might have been discouraged. Now I know enough to embrace the uncertainty and to listen to my students.

    This revelation humbles me in ways that keep me young, and it ignites my curiosities as well. I'll never be an expert, but I'm learning how to seek them out, and the discoveries I'm making have a profound effect on my teaching.

    Following are the five most powerful things I've been told about my practice by the only experts I've ever met in the field: the writers I strive to teach. These statements have made me ponder the impact students can have on all writing teachers, if we just ask them what they think."

A Beautiful Visual Explaining The Internet of Things ~ Educational Technology and Mobil... - 1 views

  •  
    "Internet of Things (IoT) is a relatively new concept that is making such a buzz online. I have come across it in several instances but never really inquired deeply about its meaning. However, today I read a really interesting article by Jacob Morgan entitled " A Simple Explanation of 'The Internet of Things'. In this article, Jacob defined IoT as "the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). This includes everything from cell phones, coffee makers, washing machines, headphones, lamps, wearable devices and almost anything else you can think of.  This also applies to components of machines, for example a jet engine of an airplane or the drill of an oil rig.""

7 Things a Quiet Student Wishes Their Teacher Understood | Marsha Pinto - 3 views

  •  
    "As the beginning of another school year approaches, students face the dreading reality of putting the sunny, less-stress summer days behind and preparing for the next 10 months of deadlines, papers, homework assignments, tests, grades and teachers that seem to not understand what it's like to be a student in 2014. While some students anticipate the teacher that gives less homework, is humorous, easy-going and fair, other students cross their fingers in hopes of the teacher that will understand and accept them for being quiet."

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Things to do With QR Codes On Back-to-School Night - 0 views

  •  
    "At back-to-school night parents usually end up with collection of papers that they may or may not be saved for reference throughout the school year. Use QR codes to put the odds in your favor of the information in those papers being saved. I figure that if parents and or students scan and save information on their mobile devices, they are far more likely to retain it that way than if I gave them pieces of paper. So create QR codes and paste them on the door to your classroom or on a bulletin board in your room"
