This is a really good app, I'm using Lapse-it pro for almost 2 years now and in my opinion is the best to create time lapse videos with android, for stop motion movies instead I'd use other apps that provide onion skinning function.

Passion-Based Learning, Day 1: Probing Minecraft’s Appeal ~ Powerful Learning Practice

Passion-Based Learning, Day 1: Probing Minecraft’s Appeal ~ Powerful Learning Practice | 21st Century tools | Scoop.it

by Matt Renwick

 

"But is this type of activity all we want for our kids? A glorified arcade? I feel like public schools should hold ourselves to a higher goal. We should have more purpose behind the programming we provide. As the lead learner in my school, I also feel obligated to consider how to extend these technologies in ways that can enrich students’ lives academically, socially, and emotionally.

T"his leads into our essential question: Where do we begin?

 

"The teacher I am teaming with on this club wanted to show the students some cool tools they could use on the iPads and iMacs. I was focused more on designing a series of activities that would lead to outcomes that would benefit our community. What we both eventually realized was we hadn’t asked our students what they wanted.

 

"Yes, they want to play lots of Minecraft. But what is it about this game that engages them to such a degree that they would stick around after school two nights a week to play it? Why are they so passionate about it?

"I reference the three motivators Daniel Pink describes in his book Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us (Riverhead, 2011) to consider some possible answers."

What feedback is and isn't

What feedback is and isn't | 21st Century tools | Scoop.it

The following is excerpted from an article by Grant Wiggins:

 

"The research is clear: good feedback is essential to learning at high levels." 

 

"Feedback is useful information about the effects of an action in light of a goal."


Feedback is Not praise and Not adviceFeedback focuses corrective measures and specific actions that the learner can take. The purpose or what is expected is clear. Clarity promotes self-regulation. Exemplars and models of both excellent and subpar work are provided. The feedback is timely
Wiggins points out that, on standardized tests and final exams: there is NO feedback.

This presentation details six highly creative and technology based ways that teachers could incorporate design into their classroom, and use it for assessment. The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way. It is a designed solution to the problem of getting readers to engage with your content in an information-saturated society!

"Aurasma is an augmented reality application that allows you to overlay any video or image on top of anything that your tablet, cell phone, or any other mobile device can scan with its camera. Using Aurasma is very much like using a QR code reader. In order to activate the overlayed image or video, the object will be scanned using the Aurasma app.  Joseph covered using Aurasma in our iPad Appy Hour Webinar. Many of the demos you will see on the Aurasma site are for advertising but you can use these skills in a number of fun and exciting ways."
