Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial

Beginner’s Guide To: Producing Their First Youtube Tutorial | Coach Jeffery's: Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

This post provides a tutorial that will show readers how to produce high quality YouTube tutorial without the use of a studio or even a video camera.

 

Users will mak a How-to video tutorial, or product introduction with voice over and subtitles.

 

YouTube has a function to translate the captions so that viewers from all over the world can understand what is in the video.

 

Subtitles also make YouTube tutorials text searchable so people can find them easily. It’s best to keep the length of the video in under 6 minutes – people don’t like to watch a video if it is too long.

John Dalziel's curator insight, March 14, 4:16 AM

One issue of BYOD, and/or learners submitting assignments, is the different formats used.
By using Docs.Zone converter, practitioners are just one click away from changing the many different formats to PDF.
It saves them from the hazardous and daunting effort of installing different software for the accomplishment of this process.
Docs.Zone provides range of services for such operations such as...
   - PDF merge tool,
   - web page grabber,
   - PDF to Word file converter and
   - PDF to Excel file converter etc.
Users just...
   - enter the address of website Docs.Zone in their web browser.
   - select the tab “convert file to PDF”,
   - brows for the file in their drives
   - click the “Select file” option, which adds the file to convert.
If users want to add multiple files at a time, there is another option for this operation, “Add Files”. They can add multiple files at a time.
After the selection of their required file...
   - click the “start” button for conversion.
After the conversion is finished, users can download the file from the table titled “Inbox”.
To download the file, click the download button opposite to the file name.
NOTE:
Once a file is converted, users can download it within a duration of 6 hours - the file will be deleted at that point.
Their original file will not be affected even after the conversion.

Instruction That Sticks: The Right Questions

Instruction That Sticks: The Right Questions | Coach Jeffery's: Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

"Julie Grimm, a teacher at Salem Avenue Elementary School in Hagerstown, Maryland, was concerned that many of her 2nd grade students failed to become engaged in their research projects. She found herself spending lots of time trying to provide the right research framework...

Then Julie made one simple shift that disrupted her typical classroom practice and led to a more dynamic learning environment."

Learn about the power of question formulation in this post. The information comes from the Right Question Institute, and provides a great overview of how to teach your students to ask good questions. The post is split into the following sections:

* The Power of Question Formulation

* Question Formulation in Practice (which includes)

   - Step 1: The teacher designs a question focus

   - Step 2: Students produce questions

   - Step 3: Students work with open-ended and close-ended questions

   - Step 4: Students prioritize questions

   - Step 5: Teacher and students discuss next steps for using the questions

   - Step 6: Students reflect

* A Catalyst for Deeper Learning

* A Small but Significant Shift

There are also some examples of the question formulation technique from classroom teachers.

Watchkin is another on-line tool for "Distraction-Free" YouTube Viewing
Watchkin is a service that allows practitioners, and their learners, to watch and project YouTube videos without seeing the related sidebar content typically seen on YouTube.com.
Watchkin can be used in a number of ways. Users can...
   - enter the direct URL of a video into Watchkin to have the sidebar content removed or
   - search for videos through Watchkin and have family-friendly results displayed (if a video appears that is not family-friendly Watchkin has a mechanism for flagging it as inappropriate).
   - use the browser bookmarklet tool offered, that they can click while on YouTube to have the related content disappear from the page.
Note: Watchkin is not a work-around if a learning provider blocks YouTube and it is not a tool for downloading YouTube videos.

13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation

13 Digital Research Tools For The Google Generation | Coach Jeffery's: Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

"This post is promoted by Noet, makers of Encyclopedia Britannica Noet Edition and the free research app for the classics, who asked us to talk about the credibility of information research in a digital world. We thought, then, that it might make sense to focus on digital tools and resources that highlight the idea of credibility."


Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 5, 11:28 PM

Terry Heick makes it clear that this is a sponsored post and recommends 13 lessons and 13 tools that we may want to share with learners (and teachers) to help them gain a better understanding as to why research and credibility are important digital concepts. Below are several of the "lessons" that we need to understand.

* Not all sources are created equal.

* You can combine digital search with academic content.

* Question everything - even if you like the source.

* Want credibility? Cite your sources.

In addition to the 13 lessons there are also thirteen tools that are suggested, such as:

* EasyBib

* Summon (an alternative to Google Scholar)

* Zotero - a website that is free and allows you to "collect, organize, cite and share your research choices."

There is much more information in this post so take the time to click through...and think how nice it would be if our learners understood and embraced the 13 lessons.

Gamification is an important method for making the learning of important but abstruse topics simple and interesting. Teachers often resort to gamification albeit unknowingly. Take for example the instance where the teacheri calls out to the student and asks him to demonstrate the concept on the green board. One could also consider the Mock Parliaments, and the Mock United Nations that take place in our schools; aren't they part of gamification?
