I usually just publish one of these posts each week. However, there has been a lot of ed tech news this week.
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:
Make Your Own Animated Movies, Frame by Frame is from The New York Times.
Comcast’s $10 internet plan opens up to all low-income and disabled Americans is from TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Schools Providing Home Computers & Internet Access To Students.
How to Use QuickCite to Create MLA 8 Citations is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning Research & Citation Skills.
How to Embed Google Docs Into Your Blog Posts is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning How To Use Google Docs/Google Drive.
Podcasting Creates an Audience for Student Storytellers is a great lesson plan. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teacher & Student Podcasting.
Click Meeting costs some money, but looks like it might be a decent tool to use if you are going to do a Webinar. I’d be interested in hearing from people about their experience with other sites.
Control F is an essential research technique. When doing a Google Search teach your students to hold down the Control key when they click on the links so it opens in a new tab. Then use Control F to find keywords so they can SKIM and look for CONTEXT clues!
