7 GREAT TECH TOOLS FOR TEACHERS

The use of technology in education is becoming increasingly important in today’s evolving world. Students interact with media regularly outside of the classroom, and educators are recognizing that the use of technology in schools not only engages their students with the curriculum, but also prepares them for a technology-rich workplace.

Brought to you by the USC Rossier School of Education, the following are a few ideas and applications that can help any teacher start integrating this innovative, technology-rich learning style into their classroom.

• Socrative – Mastery Connect created this free application that enables teachers to share quizzes, games and other activities with students, who can download the application onto their tablets or smartphones.

• Zombies to Teach STEM – In this program, zombies teach lesson plans for math and science skills.

• TED Talks – These incredible lectures are a great way to inspire students and provide valuable information on an array of subjects. They are the perfect supplement to any lesson.

#EdChat#EdChat is a weekly, organized Twitter discussion for educators and people who are interested in education all over the world.

• TeacherKit – With over a million users, this free, versatile application enables teachers to keep attendance records, record grades, track behavior, create seating charts and even communicate with parents and students.

• Google Classroom – This application allows teachers to set up pages for their classes where they can interact with students, set up new assignments and deliver messages to their classes.

• WISE App – Designed by two experienced teachers, WISE (Wireless Interactive Scanning Examinations) is a mobile application that allows teachers to scan, grade and organize test results within minutes all from a smartphone.

These tools have been helping teachers around the globe connect with their students through technology.

How do you currently use technology in your classroom, or if you are an aspiring teacher, how do you plan to use technology?

Here’s another teaching related opportunity from our friends at Participant Media: Teacher Stories.  Do you know a teacher, a colleague or mentor, from your past or present that you’d like to recognize, thank, and/or support?  Participant Media’s digital network, TakePart.com features a “Teacher Stories” campaign to help you do just that.  Even more exciting: Take Part and TEACH will contribute $1 towards schools in need, through Donors Choose, for every approved story; these approved stories will be posted on the TEACH site and a selection of stories submitted will be highlighted on TakePart.com and read on air at Pivot TV. Share your love for a teacher at http://www.takepart.com/teach/share-your-story
