Teachers Easy Guide on How to Evaluate Web content for Classroom Inclusion - 1 views

  •  
    As our students grow dependant on Internet being a primary source for their  information, it becomes of urgent necessity that we, as teachers and educators, should know how to evaluate web content and decipher credible resources from spam and irrelevant ones. Regrettably enough, some of the teachers who are using technology in their instruction still don't come to grips with  the mechanisms used to sift through internet content. There is a crude analogy to this situation . A teacher who does not evaluate the web content he shares with his students is like a person driving a car without having a driver license, he can still drive his car  but he does not know the real dangers he is putting himself to in doing so.

10 Best Internet Browsers for iPad | Mozbot - UK Technology Blog - 2 views

  •  
    "Internet browsing is the strongest forte of iPad because of features like portability, connectivity, functionality and easy access it provides on the go. While iPad's default Browser Safari does more than justice to internet browsing experience on iPad, it does not fully take advantage of the in-built iPad capability and power. This is where all the other iPad Internet Browser alternatives make their entry into the scene, particularly by exploiting the full potential of iPad's offerings and sometimes even providing high end touch gesture integration for internet browsing alacrity."

Terms of Service; Didn't Read - 0 views

  •  
    ToS;DR is still very new (started in mid-2012) so the number of sites that have report cards are limited, but it is an excellent example of the positive change that can occur through global connectivity and collaboration, and the project is actively growing. This is a grassroots project, created by citizens and volunteers who take their responsibilities very seriously; they engage in a peer-reviewed process of rating and analysing to create each rating, and they are committed to Creative Commons and Free Software licensing. While this site does not take the place of legal advice, it does help users make some sense of the pages and pages of fine print before we click, and ultimately that offers us the chance to make better online choices.

So what is Technology Integration? | Betchablog - 0 views

  •  
    "I was asked by a colleague in another school the other day if I could give her a snapshot into what I actually do, and what the role of an ICT Integrator actually looks like (from my perspective anyway). Apparently she wants to talk to her school leaders about having an integrator on their staff and was trying to get an idea of what the role would entail from someone who does it..." A great read from Chris Betcher continuing on with the theme of what does an ICT and an e-Learning coordinator do.

ChartTool - create nice looking charts with Image Charts! - 5 views

  •  
    This neat tool from Google, ChartTool is a simple-to-use chart-making service that lets you simply paste in your data and play around with how it looks. It's never been easier to whip up charts that are actually easy to use and update. In fact, embedding these charts on web pages is quite simple thanks to the embed API. You can even make QR codes in just a few seconds and quickly get an embed code to add it to your website. While ChartTool does not create as many of those fancy 3-D charts that Excel does (it still makes quite a few), it likely will be able to in the future. However, if you're in a rush and need to whip up some exact charts without all the fluff, this is the tool for you.

  •  
    This testimony reflects a typical behavior of teens whose interests evolve with the group. It is also the age of the first emotions and the need to confront reality. Outside, this lack of interest in reading often worries parents. "This fear is legitimate because mastery of the language is essential, and parents feel responsible for it.In addition, with the development of fake news, it is essential to access culture and the right information," says Christian Poslaniec.

  •  
    "A little over a year ago, Google officially changed the name of its Docs app to Drive and gave users cloud storage to compete with Dropbox. While so far the search giant has yet to dethrone the incumbent, the service does have one distinct advantage over the competition: a wide array of extensions and apps that integrate directly into the service."

Surface: Is it 'Microsoft's iPad', or something else? | ZDNet - 3 views

  • Who would have thought starving partners of support would yield bad results?
  • For me, the Surface is a "Wordbook", a new device form-factor for running Word in ultra-portable, cloud-connected mode that also happens to be one degree away from a market ready post-PC tablet.
  • Does the market actually want a device that runs Office first, and does all the other tablet tasks second? Hardly.
  •  
    "Now that I actually own an Surface, it's clear to me what it's about. Spoiler: it's not an iPad."

    The very fact that people feel the need to make a comparison to the ipad proves that competitors lost
