Popcorn Maker: A Dead-Simple Drag-and-Drop App For Remixing Web Videos

Popcorn Maker: A Dead-Simple Drag-and-Drop App For Remixing Web Videos | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it
About a year ago, I wrote about an "HTML5 media framework" called Popcorn.js that let filmmakers build online interactivity right into their web videos. The trouble was that you needed to be (or know or hire) a coding ninja in order to use it.

The article goeson to state that Popcorn Maker, put out by the Mozilla Foundation, is the "Final Cut Pro of online interactive video -- a pofessional-grade tool for creating world-class multimedia experieces from scratch -- Popcorn Maker is more like iMovie." 

To use it you have to grab online media (think YouTube and Vimeo for video, and SoundCloud for audio) and then use the interactive widgets available. Have fun experimenting!

How to Constructively Leverage Mistakes as Part of Your Teaching Strategy | Edudemic

How to Constructively Leverage Mistakes as Part of Your Teaching Strategy | Edudemic | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it

Students are not perfect, and we spend much of our time correcting their mistakes. Our challenge is in correcting these mistakes in a useful rather than in a discouraging manner. Fortunately, as Dr. Richard Curwin argues cogently in his recent Edutopia blog post. There are ways that we can structure our classrooms and change how we view and talk about mistakes that will actually encourage learning.  Here are a few ways to do just that.

A Problem-Solving Game For Teachers and Administrators - Mind/Shift

A Problem-Solving Game For Teachers and Administrators - Mind/Shift | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it

"Earlier, I wrote about four activities teachers and school leaders can use to jump-start creative problem-solving in teams. Given the increased pressure on educators to innovate, the goals for each activity were to build or deepen skills associated with that work. Readers expressed particular interest in one of these activities, so I wanted to do a deep dive and provide additional information.

This activity grew out of my work with teachers and school leaders to identify effective solutions to school problems. Over time, I became curious about how schools might make pain points visible, in order to tap into educators’ collective wisdom to solve them. I wondered, too, if we could structure this problem-solving in such a way that everyone’s voice would be heard. Finally, I wondered if there might be a way to make it a fun and creative game. That’s where a set of index cards comes in."

Far too much time is put on summative evaluation when what ,matters to learning far more is the formative ones. Summative is great for task and job analysis  used to set initial standards and objectives but does little during the actual learning process to assist the learner or teacher.
