A few weeks ago, I presented at the Illinois Computing Educators Conference on using Google Calendar. We also had a Lunch & Learn on the topic. Here is the slide presentation that I shared. If you go through it, you can learn:
Edshelf is a constantly-updated directory of apps and extensions that is organized by grade level, academic subject, or task (presentations, flashcards, augmented reality, etc.). You’ll get reviews of the apps from educators (which is why I likened it to Yelp!) – and the reviews contain useful information, like whether you need to pay money to use apps, or how easy/hard the learning curve is. There are also “shelves” where people curate their lists of apps, so if you find a like-minded teacher, you can follow him. It’s very user friendly – check it out!
I usually only skim articles like this, but because I am lucky enough to know Matt Barnes, and know he is a tireless, innovative, friendly educator, I decided to read his collection of “100 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Teaching.” I nodded my heads so many times that I became dizzy. Give it a read!
