Another great way to learn during summer:  get a few teachers together and chose a book to read.  Create a blog to share insights.  This could help reinforce technology skills and allow more to participate as they sit at the pool or take care of children.  This might be something that could continue into the school year.

How flipped #learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped #learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Best Practices in Instructional Design  & Use of Learning Technologies | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

 Face Book is not just social media , expand your horizons  , you can talk to people all over the world and learn new language, how to cook something different. With Skype you can take tour and never leave your home. You can get real news as it is unfolding. The world became so much smaller .  There is a whole world out there  waiting for you .

Iva Golec's curator insight, August 10, 2015 11:31 AM

A good but quite basic introduction to flipped learning.

Carla Kessler's curator insight, August 22, 2015 6:08 PM

Build metacognition through the use of flipped learning. Grant Wiggins states metacognition is the key to students internalizing reading strategies. The top-down approach of just teaching the strategies has proven ineffective.

5 Ways To Use Word Clouds In The Classroom | Edudemic

5 Ways To Use Word Clouds In The Classroom | Edudemic | Best Practices in Instructional Design  & Use of Learning Technologies | Scoop.it
The popularity of word clouds remains pretty constant in education, and it’s not difficult to see why. They’re a great way for students to distil and summarize information. They help students get to the crux of an issue, sorting through important ideas and concepts quickly in order to see what’s important. And “see” is the operative word here, because word clouds are certainly nice to look at. They speak fantastically to humans’ affinity for the visual, and are particularly useful for visual learners.

However, it’s important to remember that the process of creating word clouds is just as important as the resulting resources. They’re fun to make and so do a great job engaging reluctant learners. Word clouds have tons of potential to be used in all types of ways.

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation.
