Toolkit for Digitally-Literate Teachers | USC Rossier Online - 5 views

  •  
    "96 percent of Americans use the internet daily, and 62 percent of working Americans rely on the internet to do their jobs. We live in an internet age - an age that requires specific skills. Digital literacy skills have become essential to academic, career and interpersonal success.

    Digital literacy is defined as the ability to find, evaluate, share and create content using the internet - but it's much more than that. Digital literacy skills (also referred to as "21st century learning skills") have permeated the classroom, becoming requirements for both teachers and students.

    To address this need, we worked with education expert Leah Anne Levy to create USC Rossier's Toolkit for Digitally-Literate Teachers. This toolkit provide teachers and school administrators with how-to guides, actionable strategies and real-life examples of the benefits of digital literacy in the classroom."

New MakerBot Educators Program for 3D Printing Teachers - Class Tech Tips - 1 views

  •  
    "Last year I had the chance to try out a 3D printer for the first time. I chronicled my journey in a few posts including how easy it was to get started and how I was able to print a virtual reality headset. The team at MakerBot has just announced the brand new MakerBot Educators program. This program is designed to bring together teachers who are passionate about using 3D printing in their classrooms. The goal is to create a community of educators who share their experiences and best practices using innovative technology with students.
    MakerBot has already set up Thingiverse Education as a collection of 3D printing lesson plans for teachers. So it is no surprise that they've created a space for educators from lots of different backgrounds to share the way 3D printing has changed the way teaching and learning happens in their school. I love when companies create special spaces for educators to show off their accomplishments and share their expertise with other teachers."

The video does a great job of explaining how an igloo provides insulation and stays relatively warm when people are inside it. The video also explains the engineering concepts used in the creation of a strong and warm igloo."

11 Excellent Earth Science Apps & Websites for Teachers - Class Tech Tips - 2 views

  •  
    "As a fifth grade teacher I loved exploring earth science topics with my students. Finding earth science apps for a classroom with iPads and earth science websites for students on Chromebooks can help you point students find useful information. You can use these online tools for inspiration for research projects, a place for students to find answers to questions on a new topic, or to simply locate and share a video clip or idea with your class.

    On this list of earth science resources, you'll find options for classrooms with a range of technology tools. The favorites below could be used for small group explorations of a particular topic or to kick off a lesson with your whole class. As you make a plan for your next earth science unit, identify your learning goals and think about the ways technology tools can energize this experience!"

    "Keynote is one of the best presentation apps out there. We have repeatedly featured it in several of our app lists in the past. Keynote provides users with a bunch of powerful features that makes creating professionally looking presentations 'as easy as touching and tapping'. Some of these features include: users can work collaboratively on a single presentation in realtime; select from a wide variety of Apple-designed themes; add animations, charts, cinematic transitions and several other elements to your presentations; use a wide variety of predefined text styles and interactive features; present your slideshows live from Mac, iPad or any other iOS enabled device and many more.

    In today's post we are sharing with you two great guides designed and shared by Apple Education. The purpose of the guides is to help teachers make the best of Keynote on both iPad and Mac. The guides are free to download and read on your iBooks. Enjoy"

New Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Poster for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Le... - 4 views

  •  
    "After posting about Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs we received a number of emails from teachers inquiring about iPad apps aligned with this taxonomy.  The Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Cheat sheet we posted awhile ago does feature a collection of educational apps for both iOS and Android (and the web), however, we went ahead and created this visual incorporating some of what we think are the best apps and tools aligned with each of the thinking levels of Bloom's digital taxonomy. Of course our selection is subjective and based entirely on our previous reviews of these apps and we are very much aware that there are several other great web tools and apps that can fit in this pyramid but due to practical limitations we only featured representative samples in each category."
