It's can be targetted, the messages can be aimed directly to those who need to hear - and people will open them. Email (still) works, no matter what the hipsters tell you.

    These tools are the good ones - the best ways to manage your email lists and the content within them. They all approach the same issues in slightly different ways, so play around and see what suits you best."

  •  
    "he process of creating and publishing videos can be a great way to get students excited about researching, storytelling, and sharing their work with an audience. For teachers who have never facilitated video creation projects in their classrooms, choosing the right style of video and the right tools can be a bit confusing at first. To help bring clarity to the styles and tools, I have a rather simple outline that I use in my video creation workshops. "

9 Maker Projects for Beginner Maker Ed Teachers | Teach.com - 2 views

  •  
    "Maker education (often referred to as "Maker Ed") is a new school of educational thought that focuses on delivering constructivist, project-based learning curriculum and instructional units to students. Maker education spaces can be as large as full high school workshops with high-tech tools, or as small and low-tech as one corner of an elementary classroom. A makerspace isn't just about the tools and equipment, but the sort of learning experience the space provides to students who are making projects.

7 Characteristics Of Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology - 1 views

  •  
    "But using technology in the classroom-and using it effectively-might require some slight adjustments on the part of the teacher to sustain the effort, creative problem-solving, and innovation required to actually improve learning through the use of technology. (And great administrators, too.) This occurs at the belief level-what teachers believe about technology, education, and their own abilities to manage technology.

    Looking at the characteristics of teachers that effectively use technology in the classroom, then, can be useful to create an "edtech" mindset-one that believes in purpose, adaptation, change, and meaningful planning. If you spend your time planning at the upper limits of the SAMR model, this graphic may simply work as a quick reminder of how edtech can work-and work well-at the teacher-human-belief level.

    For everyone else, it's a a beautiful starting point to frame your thinking about education technology in general."
