Digital Learning Tools by the hundreds

TeachThought is such a great resource. When I first bookmarked this post, 464 Digital Learning Tools to Sift Through on a Rainy Day, there were 434 digital learning tools – today there are 530. This list comes from Dale Borgeson and is one of the most extensive collections I have found.

Then if you are interested in iPad apps for education, check out these lists:
 *  100+ iPad Apps for education by Tim Bedley
 *  TCEA’s iPad Apps and iBooks – organized by level or content and indicates free or $
 *  For those of you using Pinterest, check out Mrs. Malespina’s Great Apps and All Thing Ipad board
 *  and finally (for now anyway), Chris Beyerle’s curation of BYOD Apps and Tools for the Classroom

I have to get myself one of these devices!

4 Formative Assessment Resources

  • From the Northern Ireland Curriculum site, this book, Assessment for Learning – A Practical Guide, is one of the growing number of resources available to teachers focused on changing their practice to get better at formative assessment
  • Personally, writing success criteria is one of the aspects of using formative assessment I am working on continually. This article shares some nice examples and makes me think about collaboration on rubrics.
  • Asking better questions and asking questions better is a big piece of eliciting evidence from your students. This is a nice infographic describing 6 types of questions to share with students as you support them in learning to be better askers.
  • Megan Valois’ blog about Why I spend way more time on formative assessment… is a fun perspective on a pedagogy change that makes a difference.
