Looping: Not so loopy.

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

City Charter High’s approach proves successful and looping seems to be the reason for their achievement.  For those of you unaware of what looping is – It means a teacher will stay with a student for a duration past just one year.  At CCH the teachers stay with the students for four years.  The idea of looping and its benefits are detailed further in the article.  Read on.

RockMelt – Chrome with some Facebook Add-ons

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

Want an all-in-one browser, but still like Chrome?  Time to try Rockmelt.  It logs in to Facebook, Twitter, even 9Gag and all your other social networks or RSS feeds and keeps you updated in the sidebar or menu.  It seems like it would be the browser of choice if you have an especially large screen.

I’m going to try it out.

Socrative | Student Response System

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

“Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational games and exercises via smartphones and tablets.”

If you are a teacher who has 1:1 laptops at their disposal and you would like to make sure you have all of your students engaged in classroom discussions, or you would like to make tests more dynamic, then this FREE product is for you.

It can also be used to make dry content fun and exciting because teams can be made there students play against one another in a live response recording/projecting system.

I have personally used it with teachers, grade nine, grade five, and grade four students and most have found it intriguing to enthralling.  It’s totally worth checking out.
