Excellent speech to text tools for teachers | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

In a recent post I shared here a few days ago, I featured a list of three good text to speech tools for teachers. Today, I am sharing with you another list of handy tools but this time it is the other way around: speech to text. These tools will enable you to transcribe oral speech into text  which you can then copy and use anywhere you want.

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Rubric for Effective Implementation of PBL in Your School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

"Project based learning is a teaching learning methodology that has been widely praised for its efficacy in enhancing learning achievements.The premise underlying PBL revolves around  getting students engaged in authentic learning events through the integration of mini-projects in class. These projects can be as short as one day and as long as a year. However, there is a difference between mere projects and project based learning. This table from Teachbytes provides a great illustration of the nuances between the two concepts."

Excellent table reminding about the difference between projects and project based learning. Projects are too easily assigned as exercises to students, without paying attention to the issues on the right hand side of this table.

The Student-Centered Classroom - Liberate Learners To Flip Their Own Lessons

The Student-Centered Classroom - Liberate Learners To Flip Their Own Lessons | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

"The expanded availability of easy tech tools has empowered educators to rethink homework and daily instruction. Flipping the classroom with teacher-made videos allows students to self-direct their at-home learning. Many of these clips, however, still involve a one-day delivery of information, from teacher to student. Another approach is to allow children to make their own educational videos. They can enlighten their classmates with their creations, and they can teach themselves the material and the skills during the process of production."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 26, 5:47 PM

Have you considered having students use the Adobe Voice app (iPad) to create materials that others may use to review work? This post shares how one school has done this with 8th grade students and provides 3 videos embedded in the post as well as a link to a page where you can see more student work.

The post also discussed "four key proficiencies" that students may demonstrate as they create an Adobe Voice video:

* Symbolic and visual metaphor - in choosing images and/or icons  and their definitions of words students are demonstrating understanding of figurative meaning.

* Narrative - students narrate their story and provide images that seamlessly move from one point to another within the story.

* Text- students select key text, highlighting vocabulary.

* Design - students learn critical elements necessary to convey content. Elements may include, music, images, voice, color, transitions, layout and more.

If your observation style is hands-off because traditional learning models permitted learners to be passive, it’s time to up the ante: get involved, talk with teachers and students, and become a co-learner and instructional coach.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 29, 6:32 AM

(From the article): When we push our creativity and productivity to its limits, we can easily find ourselves teetering on brink of burnout. And there’s a fine line between being in the zone and falling down the slippery slope of mental, emotional and physical exhaustion. Therefore it’s worth occasionally referring back to this list to self-diagnose.
