7 Ideas to Tech Out Learning | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Innovation… Versatility… Performance… What teacher doesn’t want to provide the best technology has to offer for students? But with a plethora of choices, sometimes it’s overwhelming trying to determine what device best suits the needs of all learners. So, what should educators choose—the power of a laptop or the compact, lightweight portability of a tablet? Well, it’s no longer necessary to settle for one option when the best of both worlds are at your fingertips.

Regardless if it’s print or digital format, many students and adults alike love reading comics. But did you know this form of recreational reading can also be a powerful teaching resource? Yep, it’s true! I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than captivating another’s attention using comic strip style visuals and/or humor as the vehicle. Well, the survey says….. A super cool tool that provides students with the opportunity to do just that is Bitstrips for Schools. Most importantly, this web-based resource also enables them to demonstrate knowledge and creativity about a particular topic, regardless of artistic ability, using a fun setup.

Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen?

Could Video Feedback Replace the Red Pen? | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Writing useful comments on students’ work can be a fine art. And for instructors who put a lot of effort into crafting a critique, there’s always a substantial risk students will skip the written feedback and go right to the grade."

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, January 28, 2:08 PM

Is this more or less time consuming than typing comments? Does it lead to better student outcomes? 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 30, 6:37 AM

My initial response is "maybe." I stopped using a red pen years and years and years ago. The red is distracting, especially if there are a lot of comments. I also stopped putting a grade on the paper years and years and years ago. Yes, students went straight to the grade and if they liked the grade, that was that: they never read the comments. So they had to read the comments to do any revisions of the paper and no, they didn't know the grade until the final version of the paper. But by then there'd been conferences to discuss their papers and my comments.

Trent Online's curator insight, January 30, 9:49 AM

For online courses, this is a personalized touch that helps improve the sense of instructor presence and build community. And, it is not difficult or time consuming with current technology

"A  directory of tools for verifying, fact checking and assessing the validity of social media and user generated content."  As students become more and more dependent on the internet to provide them resources for learning, this could be a great tool to help them recognize what's legitimate.
