Free Technology for Teachers: Photo Mapo for Archiving Summer (and other things)

Free Technology for Teachers: Photo Mapo for Archiving Summer (and other things) | Blended Learning | Scoop.it

"While gathering resources to share with campus teachers, I stumbled upon thePhoto Mapo app and quickly added it to my list of tools for summer archival. The intent was to provide a repository of tools and applications that educators could utilize in the midst of their staycations and vacations that could also be extended to the classroom. Photo Mapo is a FREE app that does just that.

Just downloaded and checked it out. So easy to use. Choose a photo and that's it! (GPS data with photo, of course.) Lots of templates to choose from. 

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, June 9, 2014 11:42 PM

Very useful for fieldtrips and site -based learning activities - the app allows you to record the location, a map, a photo and notes about the location in a single "postcard" style image.  Geological survey, environmental outings, etc could all be recorded with this innovative, yet very simple application.

Are You Already Microlecturing?

Are You Already Microlecturing? | Blended Learning | Scoop.it
When it comes to online learning, we are often faced with libraries with untransparent lists of resources, among which there are also narrated slide presentations that could be long from 40 minutes to several hours. These long online presentations are not aligned with our attention span and are not suitable for using on mobile devices also. So what is the solution for this problem? In this article I’ll present microlectures as a possible solution and also the procedure of how to create them.

Computer-based testing. Flipped classrooms. eLearning and online courses. Mobile learning. Personalized learning algorithms.

Technology has revolutionized learning – and teaching. It doesn’t always work as planned, but when it does, technology can promote student engagement, boost efficiency and help tomorrow’s workers develop the tech skills employers so desperately want. That is, of course, assuming teachers know how to use it. Here are a few bad tech habits many well-meaning teachers succumb to in the classroom (and how to avoid them).

Formative Assessment: The Secret Sauce of Blended Success

Formative Assessment:  The Secret Sauce of Blended Success | Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Although most people probably associate the term “assessment” with quizzes and exams, in reality these high-stakes activities represent a small subset of assessment opportunities. Educationally, assessments can be broken into two larger categories: summative and formative. Most of our experience with assessment usually comes in the form of summative assessment. We have our students take exams or write papers at the end of a chapter. Summative assessments are valuable because they let us know whether our students have successfully learned what we wanted them to learn. Summative assessments, however, are limited in that they provide little information to guide teaching because they usually serve as the endpoint of some instruction.

 

"Whereas summative assessments are assessments “of” learning, formative assessments are assessments “for” learning. They help to guide instruction and provide valuable information for the instructor and for the learner. Formative assessments can help to drive instructional decision-making and allow the instructor to “take the temperature” of the class. In the discussion with my colleague, I outlined the different phases of blended learning and highlighted opportunities for formative assessment in each."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 23, 2014 7:14 PM

There is also a feature called assessment-as-learning which is an ongoing self-regulating process undertaken by teachers and students. The three features of assessment, summative, formative, and self-regulating, each play important roles. The challenge is that the first two are after-the-learning and need a complementary piece that students learn to use in their learning on an ongoing basis.

This Is The World Teachers Must Adapt To: 7 Ways Teaching Has Changed

This Is The World Teachers Must Adapt To: 7 Ways Teaching Has Changed | Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers are the arbitrators of knowledge and culture.

Knowledge and culture are each dynamic, endlessly crashing and churning.

 

This makes teaching significantly important and difficult work, and can leave teaching—as a craft—wide-eyed and nonplussed in response.

Worse, those outside the bubble of education can understandably struggle to understand the problem.

 

What are the teaching in those schools anyway? How is it any different from when I was in school?

 

Well, as it turns out, much of it is different from even five years ago.

Starting with literacy.

It is interesting the way we can summarize the world and lives into 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 habits and things. Living, teaching, and learning are complex phenomena that cannot be so easily summarized.  I certainly did not see much evidence of equity as a common theme in education. There always seemed to be somebody deciding what was fair, what that meant in the lives of others, and how it was to be corrected.
