Ed Tech Challenge - 3 views

  •  
    This a self-paced, scaffolded technology integration course for educators. This course was the collaborative effort of school districts all over the nation- and the content for this course was created by technology integrators, classroom teachers, Google Apps Certified Trainers and Teachers, and ISTE award winners. All of the suggestions we give are grounded in practice- they are techniques we actually use and we know work! We've flipped this course so that you can learn when you have time, and we've created templates, videos, and resources so that you can start using those tools right away.

8 Education Technology Books Every Leader Should Read - 3 views

  •  
    "Over the past few years I have read a fair collection of winners, a fair
    collection of losers and far too many mediocre education technology books. The aim here is to share the ones that have been so
    highly recommended they are considered must reads. Each of these has
    been a recommendation from someone within my PLN and so comes from very good authority and credibility. And of course, to continue learning from this PLN please do add your own suggestions and must-reads in the comments below."

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart - 0 views

  •  
    "My school began flipping all of its classes, which meant that for homework, I was assigned videos to watch, which were made by my teachers and explained the material which we were learning. During class, instead of listing to my teacher lecture, we began doing our homework assignments. If I had any questions, I was able to ask someone else in the class or my teacher, who was there and ready to
    help whenever I was confused or didn't understand something. Suddenly, everything started to make sense."

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have - 1 views

  •  
    There is no blinking the fact  that the type of students we teach today are completely different from last century's. We , definitely, need to look at some of the skills we, as teachers, need to equip ourselves with to better live up to the challenge. Among all the challenges we would have in education, there is not as daunting a challenge as catching students focus and getting them engaged in the learning process. For this particular reason, and in addition to the skills I initially mentioned in 21st Century Teaching Skills article, I would like to provide you  with another list of  some equally important digital skills that you, as a teacher, need to seriously consider if you want to pave the way for the 21st century teaching. I have added a list of web tools under each skill for teachers to better exploit it.

Education World: Doug Johnson: Seven Stupid Mistakes Teachers Make With Technology - 1 views

  •  
    I use the term stupid under fairly constrained conditions. To me, a stupid act has a degree of willfulness about it and is serious. Making an error once is ignorance; making the same mistake multiple times is stupidity. Unfortunately, I see stupid acts and beliefs related to technology in schools way too often.

    These would be my nominees for the most stupid things** a teacher can do related to technology...

And he had some advice.
