"The easiest way to integrate iPads in the classroom is to think about changing 1 element of your lesson."

This is great advice for all change - It is often easier to change one thing and then another and another rather than to face a complete transformation.

Cathy Jeremko's comment, June 29, 2013 1:01 PM
There are some good suggestions here! The idea of changing one element may help the technology coach to encourage use by fellow teachers
stevecarter's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:50 AM

Master one idea for change - one topic - one inquiry

Film English

The site promotes the innovative and creative use of film in language learning. All of the lesson plans revolve around the use of video and film to teach English. The site promotes cineliteracy, the ability to analyse moving images, and considers cineliteracy as a 21st century skill which our students need to learn. In addition, the lessons promote critical thinking in the language classroom, and  encourage learners to reflect on values while learning a  language.

Teachers And Social Media: Finding Your Comfort Zone

Teachers And Social Media: Finding Your Comfort Zone | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Social media has the potential to strike fear in the hearts of many educators. It’s a frequent topic in articles and education Twitter chats.  Everyone has lines in the sand about social media.  Some educators aren’t comfortable being public in spaces where students can see them. Others have strict rules about how they interact online professionally. Often, teachers have school and personal accounts, effectively separating personal and private lives."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 7, 2013 10:35 PM

This post provides some great audio and video tools that you might consider using with students. We know that students are engaged when multimedia comes into the classroom...and what better way to engage them than to have them become creators through the use of multimedia.

Learn about tools such as:

* Matterhorn, a free tool that "enables teachers to create recordings of lectures and classes." Are you thinking of flipping your class? If so you should check out this tool.

* Jing - another free tool that allows you to capture what is happening on the screen of your computer and then share it with others. How about having students demonstrate ways to solve math problems, and post them online?

* Splicd - Is that YouTube video too long? Determine which section you want and grab that specific section. Save it to your hard drive and you ready to go...without taking time to fast foward to the necessary section.

* UJam - Another free tool this one allows you to create and remix music and film.

Three more tools are listed in the post so click through to check them out!
