I realize that this post comes from the pages of,I'm tired of writing about this and you are probably tired of it too, but I have to talk about copyright, creative commons, and plagiarism again. Today, I discovered yet another blog that is copying and pasting posts from my blogs and those of many other edubloggers without permission. Unfortunately, the person behind the blog that is carrying out the practice of copying and pasting the posts did not lift  the post I wrote last month about why you can't just copy and paste posts from another person's blog without their permission.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

We have to stop pretending...  Responding to Scott McLeod challenge.

When it comes to education, I say we have to stop pretending…

That it's OK for the majority of students to leave high school believing they are not good learners;That it is OK to believe anything less than in the inherent worth and value of every child;That schooling as it now exists is about increasing individual learning capability and not actually about enforcing compliance and conformance;That it's OK that politicians, the elite, and business-people have more influence over education than local parents, teachers, and the students themselves;That students are not capable of directing their own learning, and that this isn't the ultimate goal of education.Tagging monika hardy, Jackie Gerstein, Luba Vangelova, Pat Farenga, and Maria Droujkova. From Scott:  Please join us. When it comes to education, what are 5 things that we have to stop pretending? Post on your blog, tag 5 others, and share using the #makeschooldifferent hashtag. Feel free to also put the URL of your post in the comments area so others can find it! From Me: Add the hashtag #reclaimlearning. Posted by Steve Hargadon at 4:02 PM

Dozens of Alternatives to YouTube

Dozens of Alternatives to YouTube | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've seen more schools opening up access to YouTube, at least to teachers, than I had in the past. YouTube for Schools has partially contributed to that trend. Tools like ViewPure and Watchkin have made using YouTube videos in schools a little less scary too. All that said, there are still lots of schools that block access to YouTube. That's why a few years ago I started to maintain a list of alternatives to YouTube.

As a result I'm switching to using Tozzl for most of my backchannel needs. Tozzl allows me to create sections for chat, file sharing, and YouTube videos within one backchannel. I can also import the feed of a Twitter hashtag into my Tozzl backchannel. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of how to create a Tozzl backchannel.

YouTube can be a good place to host videos that you and your students have made. However, that doesn't do you much good if your school blocks YouTube. Furthermore, YouTube can and will insert video over and or next your videos (that's the trade-off for a free service). If you want another place to host your videos, take a look at Wistia.

From Effective to Excellent: Do You Have 13 Minutes For Your Families?

From Effective to Excellent: Do You Have 13 Minutes For Your Families? | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
Do You Have 13 Minutes For Your Families?
We do a weekly video newsletter at my school.  No one was reading my paper newsletter, and they were not reading it went I sent it by email either.  How do I know this?  Parents actually told me this.  I spent at least an hour typing and editing and formatting and all of those other things you do to make a newsletter look great.  I was doing it because that is what has always been done.  That was what was expected.

I could not get over the fact that I was essentially wasting an hour producing something that no one was consuming.  Well the garbage cans were consuming them and so were the bottoms of lockers.  About two years ago I decided to change the medium of my newsletter.  It was time for the Video Newsletter.

Each week, several students and I shoot a video newsletter.  It is usually between 2-3 minutes in length.  As I am walking around the building, I take some photos, and use iMovie to put it all together.

I am frequently asked the following question:  That must take a great deal of time, how long do you spend making it?  Until this morning, I never timed the process.  My response was usually "Not very long at all."  Well this morning I have my answer.  Thirteen minutes.  That includes using the green screen app, moving it to iMovie, and pressing the button to upload it to YouTube and our Facebook page.  Thirteen minutes to engage our families.  Thirteen minutes to make sure our message and story is being consumed by people, not just the bottom of lockers.  Thirteen minutes.  Do you have 13 minutes for your families?

Are students being engaged, and is the teacher transforming learning through integration? In this session, you'll learn about two models of technology integration (the TPACK, SAMR, LOTI, and TIM Models) that will give you a theoretical (yet practical) framework to help guide discussion about tech integration.

Top Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
Even though spring has arrived and summer is sure to follow it doesn’t mean that our brains aren’t still continually thinking of how to best serve our students. With technology everywhere, it’s hard not to think of ways that you can use technology in the classroom. Digital learning starts with teachers, we are the ones that get to choose how and what technology in the classroom to use. With so many choices out there, it’s hard to choose. Not everything is feasible or even appropriate for that matter. Here are a few ways to bring technology in the classroom safely and responsibly.

Seesaw the excellent free iOS app for students to create digital portfolio has just leased some big updates in their latest version, 1.5. 

Here's what's new...

Folders: Now you can organize student work in to folders. You can set up colored folders for subject areas or learning objectives, and choose whether students self select folders when adding items or teachers do it as part of item approval.  Folders are visible to teachers, students and parents.  You can browse work by folder across your class or for a particular student. Teacher Flags: Teachers (and co-teachers) can flag items to review later -- at a parent teacher conference, with a student, or however you'd like.  Which items have been flagged are only visible to class teachers and co-teachers.PDF Documents: Now you can add PDFs to Seesaw journals. You can import PDFs from many other iOS apps (like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Google Drive, Book Creator) using the iOS share extension / open in feature. Just tap share in those apps and select Seesaw. Tag Everyone: Want to add a class photo to Seesaw journals, or send a quick note to all parents in your class?  Now you can add an item to all student journals with a single tap.

I highly recommend checking out Seesaw by clicking here!!!
