Okay. I’m a bit off task but does the lack of an apostrophe in “how-tos” bug anyone else? Pretty sure this is correct but it sure looks weird. Especially when my built-in spell checker is telling me it’s wrong.
Anyway . . . where were we?
Handy teacher guides and how-tos.
Edudemic is not a social studies site but it is a very sweet place to catch up on your tech integration knowledge. The tagline says it all:
Connecting education and technology
The site is one of the leading education technology sites on the web. With more than 1,000,000 monthly views, it’s become a vibrant forum of discussion, discovery, and knowledge. It features a regular flow of tools, tips, resources, visuals, and guest posts from dozens of authors around the world.
So you need to bookmark it, add it to your RSS feed, or add it in to your Flipboard. Cause it always has helpful stuff. And now that you have a few free moments this summer, it’s the perfect time for you to head over there and level up your tech skills.
Start with their Handy Teacher Guides. You’ll find useful tips for using the Library of Congress, Twitter, and Flipped Classrooms. Take your time. They’ve created infographics and bulleted lists of all sorts of goodies.
When you’ve finished up with the Guides, browser over to their How-To section. Tons of useful articles, tips, and tricks for helping you better integrate the use of technology in the classroom.
I also really love their Tools section. Specific step-by-step directions on using specific tools as part of your instruction. Handy stuff.
So take some time off. Relax in the hammock a bit. You’ve earn a little rest and relaxation. But when you’re ready to jump back on the learning train, Edudemic is the place to start.
