How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad

How to Open Zip Files & Extract Archives on the iPhone & iPad | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"If you’ve ever run into a .zip file on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad you will probably have discovered it’s a bit of a dead-end initially, because by default there isn’t much you can do with zips or any other archive format. That doesn’t mean you can’t open ZIP files though, and in fact these archives can be viewed, unzipped, and opened in iOS with relative ease, but you will need to download a free third party app before you’ll have the function included on your device. This will allow you view all of the contents of any zip file quickly, and also decompress the entire archive, or just extract a single file from a larger archive, providing quick access to the zip contents which can be saved locally or opened in another application of choice."

Video Tagging - Highlight Reels & Teachable Moments | The P.E Geek

Video Tagging - Highlight Reels & Teachable Moments | The P.E Geek | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"A few years ago I blogged about the concept of Video Tagging and how I was using it to improve performance in my PE Classes. Back then the process was much more involved and required a tremendous level of setup and expensive dedicated hardware and software. This ultimately led to minimal take up within the PE community regardless of the massive benefits to learning. Flash forward to 2013 and we are now in a position easily tag video with a couple of mobile apps, which have a combined price of $8.48. Not only is this price a mere fraction of the cost involved in the 2011 example, it is without a doubt a much more accesible option for the masses. Check them out below;"

"Creating picture stories can be a very effective activity in unleashing students creativity. There are now some great apps that students can use to create and narrate their stories on iPad. I have picked for you two of the most popular apps in this regard. To create a picture story, students will either use the pictures they have in their camera roll or take new ones and do some customization to them then add audio narration and text before sharing them with others via emails or through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

How Competency-Based Learning Actually Works

How Competency-Based Learning Actually Works | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
A guest post from Brent Capriotti, Curriculum Consultant for Pearson, looks at competency based learning and the idea of the 'mastery over minutes' concept. CBL courses are personalized for students based on their incoming competency and areas of need. Students can focus on higher order thinking skills and higher value outcomes can be applied. They also have the freedom to accelerate their coursework and program completion. In many cases, curriculum is customizable to fit specific areas of student competency, versus “one size fits all” courses, directly altering the development and execution of the course. Course and topic level outcome data, or data rolled up to higher levels such as program and institutional outcomes, gives institutions detailed information for institutional assessment and improvement efforts. The data is timely, relevant and actionable, at the course or program level.
