Educational Technology and Mobile Learning
There's piles of unexpected resources all over the internet. In fact I always find myself swamped with possibilities. What I really need is...
...someone who is interested in learning and and is interested in all kinds of different approaches geared to all different levels of ability and interest. And, yes, that means I have found yet another resource suitable for both students and teachers.
Take a look at Educational Technology and Mobile Learning at http://educationaltech-med.blogspot.com/.
Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is designed to "help educators, teachers, curriculum designers, and students better integrate technology into education. We provide ideas, tips, tutorials and reviews of the best free web 2.0 tools, and since the world is going mobile, we have also devoted an entire section of this blog to articles covering reviews of free educational mobile apps that work on smart devices."
Here's only one helpful resource from this website, check out this 21st Century Version of Bloom’s Taxonomy:http://educationaltech-med.blogspot.com/2011/09/blooms-taxonomy-21st-century-version.html.
Here's a link to images on the internet. Many times a picture can say far more than words. Start your image search here - http://educationaltech-med.blogspot.com/2011/07/free-resources-image-search-engines.html.
This website is updated frequently and is packed with useful and entertaining links and articles. Bloom's Taxonomy, for example gives me a sense of the sequence and pattern of learning. Since I have been primarily been working with adults lately, sites like this are particularly useful.
I love the internet, you never know what little piece of information, story or insight you might stumble into. I incorporate my little discoveries in my classes all the time.
Let us know what links or other resources you find useful or encouraging. We are all learning and making new connections all the time. And sharing makes our journey much richer.
