Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking | Connected learning | Scoop.it

Catchbox is a new throwable microphone designed to liven up audience participation, and in turn reduce the faffing around that seems to occur whenever a conference turns to questions from the audience.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged. That’s because, along with being able to sustain being dropped, the device has been engineered to automatically mute the sound when flying through the air or if it falls.

Thoughts on iPad Fluency and Workflows - Langwitches Blog

Thoughts on iPad Fluency and Workflows - Langwitches Blog | Connected learning | Scoop.it

"For me, iPad workflow has to do with fluency. It is:

the fluid movement between appsthe unconscious decision what app  to use in order to accomplish any given task

 

The workflow is almost like Grammar in a language. Grammar helps you put components of a language in the proper order, grammar rules help you use the right tense, remix word to create new meaning, the correct vocabulary words attached in combination with pronouns and conjugation help you communicate exactly what you had intended.

 

Workflow= Fluency of iPad Grammar"

Silvia Resnthal Tolisano (@langwitches) is one of those amazing and inspirational educators I would truly enjoy the opportunity to meet and talk with in person.  One of the biggest attributes I appreciate from Silvia his her open classroom.  She is always sharing student success stories.

 

Through those stories I start to develop visions of different approaches to use with my college students.  A second aspect that I admire of Silvia is the integration of visual images.  There are numerous images (some may call them mind maps or even infographics) that aide in my understanding of her approach and vision.  The one shared in this post serves as a great example.

A New Role for Avatars: Learning Languages

A New Role for Avatars: Learning Languages | Connected learning | Scoop.it

"Most experts agree that the best way to learn a language is by immersing yourself in it. Now, with  more sophisticated technology, another theory around language learning is being tested: the use of avatars to practice speaking."

When I think of an avatar, I think of people in a game. Thinking that you are playing a game when you are learning to speak a new language at the same time in incredible. People may get bored of the teacher at the front teaching us the language. Learning a new language in a manner that incorporates various ways of intaknig the information is essential to the fast paste changing  America. Being able to switch how you want to practice the language that day is left up the the learner themselves which gives them a choice in their own education.
