Ed Tech Challenge 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.
Project Red is a research study on the implications of technology in learning and student achievement. In addition, there are resources available for all school stakeholders on implementing change through 1:1 technology implementation.
Edshelf.Com is a directory of websites, mobile apps, and desktop software that are rated & reviewed by educators, for educators. We decrease the friction of using and procuring effective technology into the classroom.
Teacher’s Tech App Teacher’s Tech is one of the best mobile apps designed to assist teachers in the use of technology in their classrooms and their daily lives. This mobile app features “how-to” video screencasts of the most popular and useful Web 2.0 applications currently being used by educators, with step-by-step instructions on how to acquire services and use them effectively both as learning tools, collaborative devices, and resource generators.
The Digital Textbook Playbook is a guide to help K-12 educators and administrators begin building rich digital learning experiences for students in districts across the country. The playbook offers information about determining broadband infrastructure for schools and classrooms, leveraging home and community broadband to extend the digital learning environment, and understanding necessary device considerations. It also provides lessons learned from school districts that have engaged in successful transitions to digital learning.
We have all heard of Ted Talks. Now teachers can utilize Ted Ed for their classrooms. Videos are categorized by topics and subject areas, have questions and deeper thinking activities to go with the videos, allow you to use You Tube videos in the same fashion, and even allow you to “FLIP” your lessons by altering content and saving a unique URL. I am impressed with this learning tool for middle and high school students.
