As the world of technology in education gets overwhelming, we stumbled across this helpful chart from Te@chThought, our Education Website of the Week. Here is part of it below. Read the full post.
What Technology Does What: The Ultimate #edtech Chart For Teachers
by TeachThought Staff
Okay, we’ve had this post half-finished for long enough that some of the apps we had here are no longer relevant, so we figured it was probably time to go ahead and publish it even if we couldn’t figure out the best way to format it.
This is what we hope will be an ongoing collection of the most effective ways to use technology in the classroom. We’d like to see it crowdsourced, so we may convert it to a public document/wiki-type file at some point. We’ll also try to add to it ourselves as technology suggests itself that we haven’t considered (or just plain forgot about). We’ll also try to add more links, categorize more neatly, etc.
We may even just crowdsource it–open it up as a wiki and let you add your expertise. If a list like this isn’t updated frequently–which takes a crowd–it’s next to worthless in a hurry. If you have an idea on how to optimally format a list like this, let us know in the comments.
