Technology for Teachers

Join in our list of great technology resources for teachers. What is important is to add links that encourage use of the five Activated Classroom Teaching (ACT) digital pedagogies - curation, conversation, correction, creation, and chaos. For more on what makes a tool great for online teaching at www.activatedclassroom.com.

🥚 🥚

Edmodo is an easy way to get your students connected so they can safely collaborate, get and stay organized, and access assignments, grades, and school messages. Edmodo has a great Facebook feel but with the safety of being able to control the space.

Twitter

Lots of opportunities to use this for teaching especially using lists and #tags

HipChat - Private group chat, video chat, instant messaging for teams | HipChat

HipChat is a great place to host conversations with your students. It works well on mobile devices and has plenty of controls without being overbearing. It allows you to explore #conversation and a whole lot of #chaos as digital pedagogies.

Wikispaces

Wikispaces is for anyone in education including teachers, students, parents, librarians, schools, and universities. It's an easy way to create your own space where students can create pages and learn through the wiki process - a process grounded in #correcting. Read this to find out why we need to use wiks more.

PowToon - Brings Awesomeness to your presentations

PowToon is an online business presentation software tool that allows you to create free, cool, and awesome animated video explainers as an alternative to using powerpoint. Powtoon is a great tool that enables teachers to make use of the #creating pedagogy with their class. However this is only the start...you can then embed your students' powtoon animations in a social network like Edmodo or Twitter and use #conversation as a learning approach. Endless opportunities and a great tool. Be sure to check out our training videos on this at www.teachernology.com.

The @CTIVATED Classroom Model

The @CTIVATED Classroom Model

A digital pedagogy for schools looking to be effective in using technology in the classroom.

The layers of the @CTIVATED Classroom are designed to move learners from L@C (Lower @CTIVATED Classroom) to H@C (Higher @CTIVATED Classroom). Rather than simply consuming content, as is often the case when using technology, e.g. iPads for ebooks, YouTube videos, etc. this model encourages students to be active through the layers of curation, conversation, correction, creation and chaos.

Trello

Infinitely flexible. Incredibly easy to use. Great mobile apps. It's free. Trello keeps track of everything, from the big picture to the minute details. not the easiest tool to use but it has potential

Pocket review: Read It Later reinvents itself

I found Pocket some time ago and I've used it for a long time for my personal curation of articles for 'read later'. I left it to test Evernote for curating but I'm going back here now :) The review above should give you a good overview of how it works. One of my best features is the fact that I can read saved articles offline later on and share them from the tool. It also has an android app for 'on the go' reading.

Flipboard

I have used Scoop.It, Pinterest amongst other tools for curation and have returned to Flipboard. It really has to do with personal tastes and preferences. I enjoy it as I can curate from a computer, iPad and cellphone and e njoy the magazine format.

Keep, share, and discover the best of the Web using Delicious, the world's leading social bookmarking service. It's an oldie, but a goodie, and I love that I can tag with multiple topics because I struggle with single classifications. I keep going back to this (even though the plugins for browsers are not as well supported as they used to be) because it is just so brilliant to have all my links in one place.
