For Back to School, Reimagine Classroom Design | MindShift | KQED News - 0 views

  •  
    "Unique spaces allow children flexibility to move, collaborate, and express themselves in creative ways. And as a result of changing the learning environment, classroom instruction changed to fit students' needs too. The innovative spaces were a product of teachers changing how they taught and viewed student learning. Teachers realized that differentiated methods and changing their learning expectations for students required an environment that was radically different than rows or groups of desks.  Creating comfortable spaces that reflected the world outside of the classroom began to take shape."

Four Fun Apps to Help Gamify Your Classroom - 1 views

  •  
    "There are as many definitions of gamification as there are books and Ted Talks about it. My working definition (as applied to education) is pretty simple-gamification is the process of taking something students have to do and turning it into something that they get to do.

    We aren't talking about higher level learning here, but rather a way to take the 'ew' out of 'review.' With this goal in mind, below are four tried-and-true tools to help teachers 'funify' their classroom activities."

18 Creative & Useful Ways To Use NFC Tags With Your Android Phone - 0 views

  •  
    "NFC tags can be small stickers, which contain a small unpowered NFC chip. Depending on how the tag is programmed, it can change various settings, launch apps and perform certain actions just by holding your phone close to it. To do this, the tag takes a small amount of power from the smartphone and sends its stored information onto it."

NFC Tags Explained - 0 views

  •  
    "NFC (near field communication) is a wireless technology which allows for the transfer of data such as text or numbers between two NFC enabled devices. NFC tags, for example stickers or wristbands, contain small microchips with little aerials which can store a small amount of information for transfer to another NFC device, such as a mobile phone.
    What information can you store ?
    There's a whole set of different data types you can store on an NFC tag. The actual amount of data varies depending on the type of NFC tag used - different tags have different memory capacities. For example, you may choose to store a URL (web address) or a telephone number. A standard Ultralight nfc tag can store a URL of around 41 characters, whereas the newer NTAG203 nfc tag can store a URL of around 132 characters."

How to Automate Your Phone for Every Room in the House with NFC Tags - 0 views

  •  
    "This process uses Near Field Communication (NFC), a feature we've talked about once before. You've probably even seen it in commercials, where people share playlists and perform other actions just by touching their phones together. Those uses haven't really caught on, but NFC tags will work anywhere-they're basically tiny stickers, keychains, and other trinkets that perform tasks when you tap them with your phone."
