A short-and-sweet overview of some ways in which tech tools can facilitate or enhance educational/instructional sessions, with an emphasis on online, free and user-friendly.
TED talks good for inspiration
If you come across a particularly good set ask how they were created
Share yours online, eg. using slideshare.net
Can use for either class or project work
Free online tools, or simply paper & pen
Interesting to version them and see how things change
especially Zotero – enables sharing though can be private
can reference different media – not only books/papers but videos, images etc.
Google forms is a very easy way of conducting surveys/feedback forms
Get people to complete before they leave the room!
updates on edtech
“7 things you should know about X” series
alternative to dropbox
e.g. realtime audience polling
Poll Everywhere uses cellphones so special tech not required
e.g. snag it
to accompany written tutorials
I’m familiar with some of these, and others I haven’t had cause to use (yet), but it’s great to be reminded of the range of tools that are out there. I can see all sorts of ways in which I might use some of these (or things like them) in the future.
