'Iron Chef' parodies: A perfect use of ed tech? | eSchool News | eSchool News | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
Tom Daccord, director of professional learning organization EdTechTeacher, describes his vision for using tech in the service of learning.

 

Leading Change’ column, January 2014 edition of eSchool News—A few years ago, my high-school-age stepdaughter arrived home from school one afternoon and started watching a video. Nothing too unusual. But Olivia was walking around the kitchen and pulling out cookware from the cupboards. All this while watching the video. “What is going on?” I thought.

Olivia was watching a cooking show created by two students in her advanced Japanese class. She was preparing to cook the meal herself. The assignment was to learn new vocabulary. On other occasions, students might have had to write out vocabulary definitions on a worksheet, or choose a correct definition on a multiple-choice quiz. But today, the teacher had provided an unstructured problem for the students to solve: How would you prove that you really understand this information? No test. No quiz. No worksheet.

Their task was to create a product that communicated a persuasive understanding of the vocabulary. Because much of it involved things found in the kitchen, the students decided to create “Iron Chef” parodies and developed humorous skits using the vocabulary to teach viewers how to cook various meals.

Olivia’s Japanese teacher had served up a challenging assignment for her students that inspired them to engage in real, meaningful work (and to cook a real, tasty meal). One of our fundamental commitments as educators is to prepare students for the world in which they live: to be active citizens, reflective individuals, and productive members of the working world. Yet, the 21st century provides different challenges than the 20th century. Olivia’s teacher was addressing those challenges.

Glen Morris's curator insight, November 23, 2015 10:13 AM

How I plan to engage the class us AR next year:

 

1. I am planning on introducing Aurasma in the science centre next year. Dead posters will come to life, the anatomy model will link to anatomy lessons, the skeleton "Mr Bones" will link to the name of each bone scanned.(https://www.aurasma.com/)

 

2. Going to have a QR scavenger hunt/ Amazing Race next year - and I plan to assess it!

 

3.QR codes on tests/reports that link to a webcam video giving feedback on each student (personalised + unique attention = switched on learners)

 

Just 3 thoughts... what are yours?

In the playlist you will find videos about tools for flipping your classroom, videos on managing workflow, social media tips, search strategies, and media production. The playlist also contains videos about tools like Remind, Duolingo, ClassDojo, Classtools, Photos for Class, and many other popular web services for teachers and students.

Each of those webinars was only thirty minutes long so there wasn't a lot of time for individual questions. Since the webinars ended I've had a bunch of emails from folks looking for more instruction. The playlist of Google tools tutorials currently has more than 50 videos covering topics like Google Sites, Blogger, YouTube tricks, Google Calendar settings, and Google Drive features.

Do your kids like to use your phone or tablet like iPad to take pictures and videos? I have seen many kids playing with them. Why not take advantage of their interest and have them make some fun movies? Kids will have fun and without knowing it, they will be learning movie making and presenting skills, some will learn about storytelling too. Today we share some apps that allow kids to create movies or presentations with videos. As most of them are so easy to use, young children like preschool kids should be able to use many of them.
