"MyCreate is an iPad app that teachers and students (grades K-12) can use to create stop-motion animations. Taking advantage of the built-in camera in the iPad 2 or 3, students can solely focus on the creative direction of the project -- building scenes, editing the sequences, and overlaying the audio. It was developed based on the same research from Tufts University used to create SAM Animation, iCreate To Educate’s first product.

 

"The goal of iCreate To Educate is to put students at the center of learning by encouraging them to construct and represent knowledge both in physical pictures and models (through crafts), as well as through stop-motion video. As a result, iCreate To Educate pairs myCreate with activity guides and rubrics for teachers, originally developed for the SAM Animation software, for teaching units in science, math and language arts to English language learners.

 

"The activity guides (which are available for free) are not comprehensive but intended to "seed ideas" for hands-on projects, says iCreate To Educate CEO, Melissa Pickering.

 

"The app is available for $4.99 on the App Store and is also available for volume education pricing.

Types of Business Analytics  

(1) Descriptive Models:  Descriptive models look into customer’s history to often classify prospects into groups and categorize customers by preferences and life stage. Descriptive models can help you uncover reasons for success and failures in the past, ultimately helping you make informed decisions in the present.   

(2) Predictive Models:  Predictive model uses rules and algorithms to help predict a given outcome from specified units. The objective is to assess the likelihood whether a similar unit in a different sample will exhibit exactly same performance. Predictive models often perform calculations during live transactions to evaluate risk or opportunity in order to guide a decision.  

(3) Decision Models:  Decision models describe the relationship between all the elements of a decision to predict the results. This model drives set of business rules to produce preferred action for every customer or circumstance.

Les bonnes questions à se poser avant d'acquérir des tablettes.

Un IPAD ou toute autre technologie de ce type demande un certain investissement financier. Avant de décider du choix d'un appareil spécifique à destination des élèves, il est nécessaire de prendre en considération vos objectifs pédagogiques à long-terme. Il sera alors temps de vous poser des questions sur l'utilité de ces équipements et si l'achat vous semble pertinent , il conviendra de réfléchir en amont aux usages que vous pourrez en faire dans un cadre pédagogique.

8 Design Steps for an Academic Makerspace -- THE Journal

8 Design Steps for an Academic Makerspace -- THE Journal | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"If you build it, will they come? That is the question many schools have about finding room on campus for a "makerspace."

 

The just-released 6th annual New Media Consortium Horizon Report K-12 Editionlisted makerspaces as an emerging technology in the year-or-less adoption timeframe. "Makerspaces are increasingly being looked to as a method for engaging learners in creative, higher-order problem-solving through hands-on design, construction, and iteration," the report noted.

 

That sounds great, but what is the definition of a makerspace, and how do you launch one? As Dale Dougherty, one of the founders of the maker movement, has said, a makerspace might share aspects of shop class, an art studio, science labs and home economics. It could focus on electronics, robotics, woodworking, sewing, laser cutting, programming or any combination of those."
