Edutech for Teachers

Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Thunder, Lightning & App-oholics

app collageSo totally unforgettable summer storms, power outages and digital addictions? Say what? Um, yeah, that’s what I experienced a few weeks ago when I had the awesome app-ortunity to co-facilitate an iPads in Education 2 course with edtech rock stars Jim Gates and Theresa Bartholomew in Lewisburg, PA.

Throughout this four-day app-venture, 50+ teachers learned how to utilize an iPad and a variety of apps to engage students in the learning process.

From out-of-the-box set up to creating digital stories, presentations, movie trailers, e-books and formative assessments, these educators were not only immersed in utilizing the latest and greatest educational tools, but they also received training related to effectively integrating devices and resources into the curriculum via the pedagogical foundations of Understanding by Design, ISTE NETS, TPACK and SAMR. After all, it should never really be about the tool, but how it is used. That’s what really makes the impact. Just sayin’…

So, go ahead—release your inner geek… Crack open that tech-box and add the resources located within the interactive image embedded below to your bag of tricks. Transforming your classroom into a modern learning digital wonderland is just a few clicks away!

Be sure to hover over the image to reveal the “hotspots”. A must see: #13. It’s my new fav!

For my colleagues, the participants and especially for me personally—the week was a game changer, for sure… Thank you, Jim and Eduspire, for the chance to be a part of something pretty cool.

Let’s roll…
