Tech in the Classroom: The What Teachers Want Infographic | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

An apple a day is great, but a recent PBS national survey revealed that what teachers really want—besides an all expense paid trip to Aruba—is more access to technology in the classroom. But not just any technology—educators want web-based tools that motivate students to learn and reinforce content being taught.

Game On: Why Gamification Works

Game On: Why Gamification Works | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Gamification is not really games; it’s the use of game-like elements to facilitate learning. You can’t simply push knowledge to your learners solely through games without incorporating the other essential elements of eLearning. Let’s look at the why and the how of incorporating gamification."

Morfo + Aurasma = Augmented Reality Book Trailers - iPad Apps for School

Morfo + Aurasma = Augmented Reality Book Trailers - iPad Apps for School | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Last week at the ACTEM conference I showed some folks possible uses for the Morfo 3D Faces app and the Aurasma iPad app.

Morfo 3D Faces is an iPad app that you can use to create a talking picture of person’s face. You can take a picture of a person or you can take a picture of a picture of a person (for example, taking a picture of a picture of a person in a book). Once you’ve captured the picture you can customize the face by altering the eyes, mouth, and nose to move as you talk. After customizing the picture you can record yourself talking.

Aurasma is a free app for iPads, iPhones, and  Android devices. Using Aurasma you can create augmented reality layers, Aurasma calls them “auras,” that pop-up when you scan objects with your phone or tablet. The layers that you create can include image or video files that are stored on your iPad.

Using AirDrop in the Classroom

Using AirDrop in the Classroom | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

In the new version of OS X, Yosemite, AirDrop helps you quickly transfer files between your Mac and nearby Mac computers or iOS devices using Wi-Fi. The best part, especially in the school setting, is that your devices do not need to be on the same Wi-Fi network for AirDrop to work as they will create their own directly connected network to allow for file sharing.

Three Word Thursday: A Weekly Multimedia Mash-up

Three Word Thursday: A Weekly Multimedia Mash-up | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

You know what day it is, right? Nope, it’s not Throwback Thursday—although it could be. Just not in my Multimedia I class. Instead this day of the week means it’s time for another edition of our weekly project known as Three Word Thursday.

 

So, here’s how it works… Every Thursday my students are responsible for taking a photo or shooting a video clip. The rules for doing so are pretty simple: Their job is not only to create original media, but to add three words to the visual as well. This text can be about any topic of their choosing including but not limited to how they feel, an activity, person/people, an event, etc.—as long as it’s G-rated, of course!
