Tools 4 teaching

  1. 1. DIGITAL TOOLS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING A) *SHARING, PLATFORMS & SOCIAL NETWORKING 1/ GOOGLE APPS FOR EDUCATION: 2/ BLOGGER Creating a blog for collaborative working. 3/ eTwinning 4/ TWITTER 5/ EDMODO Edmodo is a free social learning platform for students, teachers and parents. It looks a little bit like Facebook so it is a familiar format for students to use. But before you run for the hills, it is very different to Facebook in that it's completely controlled by the teacher and specifically designed for educational purposes – one of my classes has affectionately named it "Fakebook". It has a shared timeline as a homepage where you and your students can interact and you can allow students to interact with one another, if you wish. Both teachers and students have a library where they can store documents and share them with others if they want to. The teacher can set assignments, students hand in assignments and teachers feedback on the work all within Edmodo. Two particularly useful functions are the quizzes and polls, and there's also a built-in grade book that houses your teacher-assessed grades and quiz results for each student. 6/ PINTEREST Pictures/images (you can follow walls) spx 7/ DOTSTORMING Dotstorming takes the process of dot voting online to allow groups of people to collaborate on a topic.
  2. 2. *THESE ONES & MORE: B) SOCIAL BOOKMARKING 1/ DIIGO 2/ TWITTER *GROUPTWEET: multiple users- 1 account TWITDOC: to share documents with Twitter 3/ PINTEREST Pinterest was the breakthrough website of 2012 and now ranks as the 15th most visited website in the US. Pinterest is for sharing pictures, not links – a medium that makes it perfect for the current image-centric nature of the internet. You can create ‘pin-boards’ on particular subjects and themes and pin any image from across the internet on it. 4/ SCOOP.IT C) COLLABORATIVE WORKING (Students) 1/ MAGAZINEFACTORY MagazineFactory is an easy publishing tool which provides school groups an opportunity to work as editorial staff and to publish their own webzine!

This is simply your own YouTube home page – you can style the background, upload profile information and follow other channels of interest. You can also create playlists within your channel to organise videos into topics and allow students to find them easily. If creating your own videos is not for you then you can create playlists of videos that are already out there that relate to the topics you are studying. 4/VIMEO 5/ SCREENCAST Capture your computer or device screen and allow you to record your voice while you do so.
