It’s always helpful to have new and useful resources if you are an educator working with technology! Big Deal Media has started a blog called “Teaching 4 Tomorrow: Ed Tech Ideas and Strategies Worth Sharing” to discover new platforms and resources for tech educators.
This article shares the top five resources that educators used the most in the month of February. Some of these resources include:
Siemens STEM Day: For students grades K – 12, “STEM Day offers a variety of tools and resources that will help you reinvent your STEM curriculum. You’ll find new, original hands-on activities, a teacher support center, and our Possibility Grant Sweepstakes”
RobotBASIC: This platform incorporates programming language with a robot simulator. The program “enables users to simulate a robot with many types of sensors, control a real robot using the wireless protocol, create animated simulations and video games, handle complex engineering problems, motivate students to learn, and create contests for robotics clubs.”
“Oversharing” Rap Video: This video is all about social media, and about responsibly posting and sharing content. The site has quizzes and activities to help students learn about appropriate social media behavior.
