Using memes, gifs, and Vines in the classroom
Teachers often lament about how short their kids' attention spans are. While I certainly agree that students of all ages should work to pay more and better attention to adults, the fact of the matter is this: We just aren...

96% of teachers in the U.S and 94% of teachers worldwide state that technology plays an important role in their classrooms, and 69% now use open resources more often than textbooks.
Key areas of technology implementation are individual and group instruction, as well as communication with parents. http://buff.ly/1doW4nW
TES Global presented the results of its first international teacher survey, finding that classroom tech hit the mainstream on a global level.

How to change formatting in Google Docs comments and G+ posts! The best part - my student taught me how to do it!

Now it's time for teens to talk. Some of it's great, but for those #edtech enthusiasts out there, well, hold on, because the truth may hurt.

What if the classroom were more like a video game? Barry J. Fishman, a professor of information and education at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, would like to help you find out. Mr. Fishman has borrowed elements of gaming to develop GradeCraft, a learning-management system that lets ...

About this community

The EdTech Google+ community is a place where educators, technologists, students, researchers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts can discuss the multifaceted role of technology in education. As an industry leading resource for EdTech related communications, technologies, practices, research and methodology, we hope this space is a collaborative and open resource for the world to share their stories, research and findings in educational technology. As of late, the community has sustained significant growth, and is expected to continue. For that reason, we aim to revitalize the submission process to encourage a more easily navigated and rewarding experience for users. Ultimately, your posts and submissions should help contribute to the intellectual growth of this community which represents a larger movement. We have carefully researched what makes a community succeed, what makes them thrive, and what makes them fail. We want you to see this community as a place where you can grow, converse, question and laugh about things that matter to you and ideas that will move our world forward. We've put together an Open Community Constitution (OCC) to guide you when contributing, posting, sharing and interacting with the community. This OCC is a living document meant to guide you when posting meaningful, purposeful content that contributes to the community. Expectations of a post: 1. Post must be related to role of technology and how it relates to education, classrooms, pedagogy, instruction and learning. 2. Does not solely promote a product, individual or institution with no benefit to the entire community 3. Post must have relevant introductory text related to the post, link, photo or video 4. Posts and updates should be in the best interests of education technology leadership, research both academic and commercial 5. Above all, make it fun and keep it classy. - Your EdTech Moderators Adopted: September 9, 2013

You're right. This is for those non-GAFE schools. I've read about 20% of business is on Google Apps, but don't know the statistics for GAFE.

I really enjoyed incorporating blogging into my literacy centres recently. I look forward to seeing how I can extend it. Any other K-3 teachers using blogging as a centre? Tips? Ideas?
