3 Tools for Creating Digital Portfolios – From Avra 

This post first appeared on Edutopia. Learn more from Avra on Twitter: @avrarachel Throwing items away has never been a skill of mine. That feeling of “I might use this someday” only worsened when I became a teacher and then a mother. My “keep or toss” decisions became clouded by sentimentality, and I couldn’t bring myself to throw away the precious gems my daughter created in school.

Bring Map Making to Any Classroom Using Google My Maps 

Want to learn more from Ben? Follow him on Twitter: @Mr_Sondgeroth As a former history teacher, maps were an essential part of my curriculum.

Three Little Known Features about Google Scholar 

Though most students knows about Google, few realize the power of Google Scholar.  Unlike a regular Google search, Google Scholar limits its results to sources considered to be scholarly: books, journals, abstracts, theses, and even court cases. Also unlike Google, instead of ranking results by popularity, keyword, and past searches, Google Scholar examines the text in the documents, the credibility of the publication, and how often the work has been cited by other scholars. Particularly for high school students, Google Scholar can be a great research tool; and like all things Google, it also has a few hidden features that…

Awesome Assessment App Smash: Google Drawings and Google Forms 

In my work as an instructor for EdTechTeacher, I have the pleasure of working with teachers from all over the country in both face-to-face workshops and online learning modules. As the teachers and I work together to explore new ideas, strategies, and tools, we learn and grow together. Recently, a Webster Public Schools cohort of teachers were exploring Google Drawings in an online learning module I created. As we discussed ways to utilize Google Drawings in an educational setting, we explored student and teacher uses of the program. Through our discussions, I began to consider how the combination of Google…
