Tools for the 21st Century Teacher
As I reading through my RSS feeds, I came across this short post by Joyce Valenza from Neverending Search about a social media resource for teachers. As the new school year begins in the next two weeks in Australia I’m sure many teachers will appreciate this great e-book Tools for the 21st Century Teacher by American educator Michael Zimmer.
The 17-page ebook is packed full of ideas and information for teachers about how to integrate about 20 tools in the classroom – with suggestions for implementation, use and ways to use the tools with students. Zimmer hopes the guide will help equip teachers with knowledge of a variety of tools to be 21st Century teachers. The tools covered include: Twitter, Prezi, a variety of blogging platforms, Google Reader, Diigo, Glogster, Evernote, Dropbox, Quizlet, Wallwisher, TitanPad, Skype, Wordle, Wordle, Google Sites, Weebly, Wix and Wikispaces.
I am looking forward to having a closer read of Zimmer’s work to help me guide teachers to implement and integrate web technologies into the curriculum at OLMC. Thank you Michael for sharing your work.
