In another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I’m starting this weekly “Ed Tech Digest” post where I’ll share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech:
Richard Byrne published a post about new Google features that might help teachers deal with YouTube’s awful Safety Mode. If you look at the comments section at Google, though, it looks like there is still a long way to go. I’m adding this info to The Best Ways To Deal With YouTube’s Awful Safety Mode.
How to create digital homework that students love is an excellent “how-to” post about using TED-Ed with students. I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.
New Tools for Interactive Fiction and Engaged Writing is from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
Google For Education has a “one-stop shop” with tutorials for all their products.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Posts & Articles Highlighting Why We Need To Be Very Careful Around Ed Tech:
Not meant to be, but this strikes me as a fair summary of the edtech purveying process in schools too pic.twitter.com/YSDpdlRLAY
