Edudemic blog presents The 12 Most Popular Ways College Students Use Smartphones .
They present an infographic from Online Degrees that shows in a nice way the statistics about when and how much students use their smartphones (basic, news, and throughout the day). When the most interesting and I would even call it a scoop is the fact that 47% of college students don't have a smartphone.
Flipped classroom blogger tries to refute the myth that flip learning is all about the videos. He claims that the video is only a tool that stands for direct instructions that takes place one-on-one via the videos. The videos don't replace the lecture/r, they only allow more quality learning that will occur when you meet your students face-to-face.
In "free technology for teachers" the blogger introduces the "graphic stories", which is a way to teach math by videos, that was created by Dan Meyer and Buzz Math. Meyer uses videos in order to present his students a mathematical problem in a more authentic and realistic way than the regular workbooks. In the blog, you can find a link of Meyer lecturing in TED, where he explains how it works.
On this week, the tools of technology that I like very much are PhotoFunia, of course, an awesome and great site that I'll probably use a lot (and I've already did...).
I like the Scribd website of images that are relevant to the 3rd - 5th grades. The Andertoons website is wonderful. I spent a lot of time on Lunapic editor, which is great. and I must say that the bookmark is very helpful and has a lot of value.
