Educators/Teachers software...
« on: May 29, 2008, 05:42:54 PM »
Reading Superboyac's post mentioning using Fullrecall in a maths class reminded me of an idea...
Would it be useful to have a thread with teacher's subjects and the software they commonly use and like recorded.
Useful to:
- get ideas conveniently
- easily see who it might be worth pm-ing to suggest or ask stuff

eg .. I teach senior maths in a high school.
Daily use Notateit Pro with a IWB, and use primopdf to convert the IWB pages to pdfs which I put online.
Use Geogebra frequently for displaying stuff, especially in intro diff calc
Use efofex software for embedding equations, graphs etc in word documents - in preference to the built in equation editor.
(Could even have links and a comment about what the software is for if you're not feeling lazy!!. I'll edit this post if anyone cares - at the moment, I'm just canvassing an idea)

I'm not sure how I missed this originally.. I think this would be a great idea..
OR if someone knows a good website with this info, or wiki page, please post, there should be one somewhere.

This may not be exactly what you want since it is full of weblinks but look at this site http://www2.usd267.c...eachinglearning.html.  It is one of the best sites that I have found and they are only a couple of hours down the road from us.  As far as finding software (especially free) I also would be interested in that.  I will check out my bookmarks and post back anything that I find later on.

It was so  t e d i o u s  to click my way to the prices for the various efofex apps, that I thought I would upload them just to save some other curious person a couple of eons...:

I created a site a while back with my recommendations for academics.  It has an associated blog on which I stopped updates because I wasn't receiving much feedback.  You might find some useful information on the site.  I did my best to categorize the tools and identify them in a variety of ways.

Let me know if it's useful and I might do some updates.

Really nice page Jim -- I can see why it would be hard to maintain, just because there are so many programs listed and always changes happening.  It is a very nice resource though.

AT_BlogHeaderTn.JPGI've started a blog named "Academic Tools" that I'll slowly fill with more detailed reviews of these programs as well as other issues using involving tools in education. You are welcome to comment on the tools there. I'll incorporate such feedback here. You can subscribe to an "RSS feed" there using Google Reader or other feed reader. Note that where an expanded review exists it is linked from the tool description in these pages.

I cannot reach this Academic Tools blog - I am merely getting this WordPress > Error

Yes, the blog isn't working at the moment.  I switched webhosts and it broke in the process.  There isn't really anything of note there anyway - all the recommendations are in the site that still works.  I probably ought to go in and put a note about the blog.

If I got overwhelming requests to continue the blog I'd fix it.  :)
