Great website for teachers using technology in class

Here’s something that might just make your job a little easier. And when I say that, I’m referring to any teacher’s job.

When surfing online for news tips and ideas this morning, I came across an interesting website, Edudemic: Connecting Education & Technology. This particular website is dedicated to connecting teachers, students and just about everyone else to the best technologies available on the market. According to other websites, it’s one of the largest educational websites in the world as we speak. It offers teachers guides on various subjects from Twitter to choosing the best digital content.

google-searchOn the website, you can also find « How to» capsules under the teachers’ tab. One I particularly enjoyed is 15 Lesson Plans for Making Students Better Online Researchers (http://www.edudemic.com/students-better-online-researchers/). This post offers different tips according to the student’s level (beginner, intermediate or advanced) when using Google. It’s important that students understand how this search engine works if they want to extract from it all the benefits it offers. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has created a set of lesson plans, organized, explained and linked in this article.

As for those of you who are still wondering if using mobile devices in the classroom is beneficial to students and yourselves, here are two articles especially made for you: 6 Reasons to Try Mobile Devices in the Classroom (http://www.edudemic.com/mobile-devices-in-the-classroom/) & 10 Things to Know About iPads in the Classroom (http://www.edudemic.com/10-things-know-ipads-classroom/).

As for teachers looking for online videos, here’s something that might appeal to you. Edudemic posted an article last September on 23 sources where you can find FREE educational videos to put to use in your classroom (http://www.edudemic.com/free-educational-videos-online/).

This is a very useful website, from which I imagine a lot of you will benefit. I invite you all to go have a look and share with us what useful tips you find!

    new because we already know the best way to design one

    and driven by venture supervisor requests.
