    "Teaching in a digital world, while essential, can be a difficult task. The digital world is constantly evolving, and it can be hard to keep up with new trends. And while students often enter the classroom with a high degree of digital awareness, it is often confined to the world of social media. How then, do educators learn about digital literacy, so they can model and teach it to their students?  Thankfully, there are tons of apps, tools, and resources that can help. We decided to profile the best ones."

The Problem Is Wasted Time, Not Screen Time | Getting Smart - 0 views

  •  
    "Are today's students spending too much time in front of computer screens? The more important question is: are students engaged in powerful learning experiences and, whenever possible, given voice and choice in what, how, and when they learn? Digital technology can powerfully facilitate this process, if thoughtful adults deploy it wisely. Otherwise, it can be mind-numbing, or worse."

Typito: Your post production buddy - @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch - 0 views

  •  
    "More and more we communicate through video. And I'll bet you know the feeling when you record that very effective screencast or tutorial, and it just doesn't feel ready for primetime.

    Post-production is what makes your media feel professional and done. But not everyone has access to, or the chops to use, a robust video editor like Final Cut Pro or Adobe After Effects. And not everyone wants to spend the arduous time it sometimes takes to make a video product feel professionally spiffy.

    Typito is a relatively new video editing tool designed to be your time-saving, affordable, post-production friend.  It allows even rookie editors to create a little magic on top of the videos they shoot or collect."

Get to Know the BBC Micro:bit - 1 views

  •  
    "t's time to take a look at the micro:bit, which is quite the impressive little device, and see what's packed onto its small surface (4.5 × 5 cm-it's been billed by the BBC as being about half the size of a credit card). I usually introduce new users to a device like this by examining each component one by one, moving clockwise around the board, and that seems like a perfectly reasonable route to take now."

    "Coding and computer science have yet to make their way into every school curriculum in the U.S. But the country isn't short on initiatives-such as Google's Code Next program or the White House's Obama era Computer Science For All campaign-which aim to change that.

    And while these programs attempt to arm students will the ability to code, they sometimes overlook a critical skill that developers, computer science scholars and tech recruiters say is key to landing a job in their field: writing."
