Usually, I just publish this post once each week. However, the ISTE conference is happening, and there’s lots of ed tech news!
Six years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech, including some Web 2.0 apps.
You might also want to explore The 56 Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2018 and THE BEST WEB 2.0 APPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATION IN 2019 – PART ONE.
Here are this week’s choices:
Google Expeditions is Now Available on Chromebooks! is from Richard Byrne, and is great news! It’s been problematic for us to use it up to now because students had to have phones, the phones they had needed to be able use the app, and they needed space to download it. Now, we should be able to use it with our Chromebook carts! I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources On Virtual Reality In Education.
Google announced that they’ve added media/information literacy lessons to their digital citizenship curriculum. I’m adding it to The Best Tools & Lessons For Teaching Information Literacy – Help Me Find More.
Book Creator Adds New “Magic Ink” and Autodraw Tools for Making eBooks is from Richard Byrne.
Bloxels lets students create video games. Teachers can create virtual classrooms. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.
Photomyne lets you easily scan photos in photo albums.
A unique way to create choose your own adventure games via Twitter was invented this week. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
