20 useful ways to use TodaysMeet in schools ~ DitchThatTextbook ~ by Matt Miller

20 useful ways to use TodaysMeet in schools ~ DitchThatTextbook ~ by Matt Miller | Assistive Tech & 21st Century learning skills | Scoop.it
“It’s designed as a backchannel — the conversation behind what’s going on. TodaysMeet creates personal chat room that you can set up and invite people to. They can quickly and easily write comments or questions for anyone in the chat room to see.TodaysMeet is literally the easiest website to use I’ve ever come across. To create a room, just go to TodaysMeet.com, give your room a name (let’s say we named it “DitchThatTextbook” … no spaces, periods or certain other characters). Decide when it closes (i.e. how long you want it to exist). Then click “Create your room.””

Three iPad Apps for Creating Talking Pictures ~ iPad Apps for School ~ by Richard Byrne

Three iPad Apps for Creating Talking Pictures ~ iPad Apps for School ~ by Richard Byrne | Assistive Tech & 21st Century learning skills | Scoop.it
“A couple of weeks ago at the Future Schools Expo in Sydney I facilitated a workshop about making media with mobile apps. The idea of creating talking pictures was one of the ideas that was a hit with some of the participants in the workshop. In the workshop I shared examples of using ChatterPix Kids to have students create short audio stories about their favorite animals. I also shared an example of using Morfo to create audio biographies in which students give voice to famous people in history. Below is a short summary of both of those apps as well as another app useful for a similar purpose.”

"Math in my classroom may look a little different in my room than other classrooms. At first Glance, it looks a bit chaotic and messy. You may not see me at first glance, I might be playing a math game with a student, or working with a small group on the carpet, or going over the math concept that we are currently working on with a group that needs a little extra help at the guided reading table."

5 Ways to Use Aurasma in the Classroom ~ Teq

5 Ways to Use Aurasma in the Classroom ~ Teq | Assistive Tech & 21st Century learning skills | Scoop.it
by Marc Brea"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."
