Social Networking for the Classroom


Schoology
With Schoology, educators can do things as simple as posting assignments, quizzes and links to additional resources or as sophisticated as conducting online courses, providing one-on-one remediation, or hosting discussions.
It is free to sign up, but it looks like there may be some cost involved somewhere.


Software


My favorite software for math is The Geometer's Sketchpad. This is published by Key Curriculum Press. They have created a resource page for classroom activities using The Geometer's Sketchpad. I have 30-day trial versions of this software that I am giving away.

I also have copies of the trial version of TinkerPlots, software designed for data analysis in grades 4-8.

Educational Origami
"Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning.
This wiki is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area, it is about shifting our educational paradigm. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. In fact, we know that exposure to technology changes the brains of those exposed to it. The longer and stronger the exposure and the more intense the emotions the use of the technology or its content evokes, the more profound the change. This technology is increasingly ubiquitous. We have to change how we teach, how we assess, what we teach, when we teach it, where we are teaching it, and with what.
Its a tall order, but these are exciting times."
