Hery One requirement for Chromebook is it has to connected with the Internet. The machines is cheap, but not always with the Internet services. Software is not a problem anymore, because with availability of social media, social software, and cloud computing, many free version available in the web. For instances, Google Docs and Zoho Writer will be a good replacement for Microsoft Office; picnik is a good alternative to replace adobe photoshop; dropbox is good for online storage; and many more. I will be happy to share the free online tools based on your need in this forum.882 days ago
Hery Hai all...in the forum 1000guru (http://1000guru.net/), teleconference with Skype has been proved be able to connect voluntary teachers from everywhere with schools in Indonesia. Skype is really amazing tool. Besides Skype there are some alternative for teleconference: 1) I use WizIQ for conducting my free classes every month (check: http://wiziq.com); 2) join.me ( http://join.me) is effective for meeting online without need a login account; and 3) Google+ has a hangout, where people can interact with their circles' members. Sound promising to look at more classroom video conferencing. Oh...one more, in our college of educationa, university of Hawaii at Manoa, Elluminate is widely used for online and hybrid class. While it is not free, the free version with limited number of party (3 person) is very helpful for our online students to collaborate on finishing class project.882 days ago
A discussion group for Instructional Technology Specialist, Education Technology Specialists...etc. We should have a group too, don't you think?
There are no announcements yet.
Hi Adam - My school has two class sets of the senteo clickers. I work at an elementary school (K-5) and the 4th and 5th grade teachers are using them more and more. They really are incredibly easy to set up, especially if you're just looking for anonymous instant feedback. If a teacher wants to setup their class lists it's a bit more involved, but still not very hard. It integrates with the Smart Notebook software. The teachers in our Middle and High Schools are using this technology a lot! I see that you are a high school teacher. I have noticed that it just takes one or two brave teachers to take the plunge and get into it, and the rest will follow. The ability to instantly assess an entire classroom is priceless. I say...go for it! I hope this helps...I'm happy to help if you have any detailed questions.
Very cool, Randi. Thank you for sharing. I haven't found a use for Augmented Reality in the classroom either...YET! I believe we will see a lot more of this technology in the near future. It's exciting to me!
Lindsey - What is Zooburst? I am loving this discussion. There are so many great tools available.
