Students have a particular liking for badges which they can flaunt to others. A badge is like a special privilege that all can see. I earned my badge after completing a MOOC session, although whether I will wear this badge is doubtful, but then for students at least it is about making the reward more attractive than just a certificate which will be put away in a folder or portfolio once it has been earned!

Focusing On Creativity In A Digital Era - Te@chThought | 21st Century tools | Scoop.it

"“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson

 

Our children will grow up into a world that we can barely yet conceive of. Education thinkers and leaders are now in broad agreement that in order to enable children to succeed in the 21st century we need to mould creative thinkers and problem solvers who can learn, unlearn and relearn."

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.

The (5) most useful accessibility features on the iPad | iPad Insight

The (5) most useful accessibility features on the iPad | iPad Insight | 21st Century tools | Scoop.it
One of the lesser know features of iOS that adds an incredible amount of functionality to the iPad is Accessibility. Unfortunately, not many people are aware of the many benefits gained with Accessibility–and even fewer are aware of how to access them on their iPad even if they wanted to.  For the sake of narrowing the focus of this post somewhat, I decided to list and give a brief overview of what I believe are the (5) most useful features found in accessibility on your iPad.  Obviously, if you have special needs that require assistance to use your iPad, you might have a very different list of features.  Luckily Apple breaks this feature into several sections that include additional help with Vision, Hearing, and Interaction with your iPad.

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.
