The story of Fishing Village

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, January 23, 2014 2:02 AM

Since Xtranormal ceased trading last year .. I have searched the web for a replacement without much success.  However, Plotagon runs a good close second; it is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

I am piloting it now it's completely free and currently in beta stage, but you can start using it right now.

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation

Teaching Your Students How to Have a Conversation | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

While it is impossible to know all of the reasons, there is no doubt that learning to listen and talk is an extremely important way to broaden knowledge, enhance understanding and build community. Perhaps this is why the core standards in English-language arts include an important emphasis on developing speaking and listening, the basic tools for conversation. This eight tips can be used regularly to help students learn good conversational skills.

Audrey's curator insight, November 18, 2013 4:32 PM

The tips are: Imitate good conversations; encourage non-verbal behaviour as it shows interest; challenge hurtful comments; ask open-ended questions; Do not accept , 'I dont'know'. Ask, 'What do you think?; Ask students informal questions, e.g. about their other classes; make eye contact.  This shows you are listening; encourage turn-taking.

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.
