Comparisons

Comparisons

In comparing the products, this is how I would juxtapose them.

Twitter is to iPod Shuffle, as Instagram is to iPod Nano, as Tumblr is to iPhone, as WordPress is to iPad.

Literacy in the Digital Age

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

Great links for lots of Digital Literacies – Traditional, Information, Tool, Data, Global, Economic, Critical, Media, Civic, Health, and Historical literacies.

Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:

An excellent resource for teachers.  I will keep coming back to it to explore the site.

American Parents Are Obsessed With Enrichment. Dutch Parents Think That’s Crazy. Why?

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

New parenthood is a desperate search for certainty: When you start knowing nothing, you are desperate to know something. And when you finally figure that something out—how to get this creature to eat or sleep—that becomes the answer.

 

Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:

This is a great juxtaposition of a few cultural norms in parenting.  It is interesting to compare my “water submersion” to others.

Teacher Dashboard Explainer

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

Learn the basic functions of Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps.  See Google Apps activity organized by class and student with a bird’s-eye view across Docs, Sites, Blogger, Picasa, Gmail and Google+Details | Video | Pricing

Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:
After looking through http://hapara.com and thinking about it, this new solution is still not as good as Edmodo and NetNewsWireapp, which are both free.
First, Edmodo allows for the organization of Google Docs by students for teachers through assignments, but also does not let other students see or edit the Google Docs of others.  http://hapara.com/ will still have this problem because the docs are still being saved into a communal folder.
Second, NetNewsWireapp shows a teacher which blogs have been read, whereas http://hapara.com/ does not as far as I can tell.Again, both of these other products are free.  What do you think?
