7 resources for student collaboration
Collaboration is increasingly emerging as one of today's top skills. Part of the 4Cs, it is needed in K-12 classrooms, in higher education, and in the workforce. Students who leverage technology to build collaboration skills are building strong college- and career-ready skills. More and more classrooms are going mobile, whether that is through school-issued laptops or tablets, or via BYOD initiatives that allow students to bring and use their personal mobile devices in school. However collaboration is accomplished, it's evident that mobile collaboration tools are as important as ever. Here, we've listed a number of free and fee-based collaborative tools and apps, along with developer-provided descriptions, for students to use as they develop collaboration skills in and out of school. This is just a small sample of collaborative tools, and if you have a favorite that is not listed, please let us know in the comments section below.

What students really think about learning online
After recently posting two blog pieces about being an online teacher, I realized something was missing from the conversation: the voice of the students actually taking the digital classes. So I polled my German language students, asking one simple question: “What do you like most about learning German online?”
Survey finds gender gaps in school IT leadership
While women who occupy leadership positions in school technology are better educated and have more experience, on average, than their male colleagues, men in the school IT field generally earn more money and hold more prestigious job titles: This is the main takeaway from an analysis of IT leadership in K-12 education by gender.
Four research tools for project-based learning
Here are reviews of four high-quality digital tools that can help with project-based learning, courtesy of Common Sense Media and its new Graphite service--a free database of teacher-written reviews of learning technologies. Noodle Tools Grade range: 6-12 What is it? No noodlin', just serious research with this comprehensive resource Pros: From creating notecards to listing citations, every step is scaffolded with multiple supports built right in; the site's focus on the why of research is excellent. Cons: Through all of its thoroughness, the site could do more to help make the research process more engaging for kids. Bottom line: NoodleTools gives kids smart, specific assistance where they need it the most -- with citations, paraphrasing, and organization, though the details may overwhelm. ResearchReady Grade range: 6-12 What is it? Versatile site teaches research skills, offers teachers flexibility Pros: Research skills get real-life credibility in an accessible format that both instructs and supports learning. Cons: Despite supportive graphics other accommodations like audio options, translations, and linked definitions aren't included. Bottom line: Because the lessons make information literacy accessible, it's a great resource for teaching research-based units. EasyBib Grade range: 7-12 What is it? Helpful citation and writing resource for instant bibliographies Pros: This handy tool takes all the un-fun parts of writing a research paper and demystifies them, making it less intimidating for students to find and cite the best sources. Cons: The sidebar ads can be distracting and they're a little pushy about upgrades if you're using the free service. Bottom line: EasyBib takes the pain out of citing sources and gives students and teachers a comprehensive place to organize all research paper-related activity. CiteLighter Grade range: 8-12 What is it? Say goodbye to note cards: research and citations made easy for students Pros: It's like a one-stop shop for student research, from gathering sources to organizing research and outlining their own writing. Cons: The automatically compiled bibliography may encourage student passivity rather than inquiry into the why of the citation process. Bottom line: A smart, intuitive support for all steps of the research paper process; design and sensibility resemble the social media sites teens love.
