Free Tool from Adobe to Create Animated Stories and Educational Posters ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Spark Adobe is an excellent application with huge educational potential. As a teacher, you can use Spark to create a wide variety of multimedia materials to include in your instruction. There are three main types of creations you can build and share on Spark: Post (this is especially useful for sharing announcements, invitations, and inspiration quotes), Page (great for photo journals, event recaps, portfolios, catalogs..etc) and Video (great for creating animated stories, presentations, lessons and many more).

The Student-Centered Classroom - Liberate Learners To Flip Their Own Lessons

The Student-Centered Classroom - Liberate Learners To Flip Their Own Lessons | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"The expanded availability of easy tech tools has empowered educators to rethink homework and daily instruction. Flipping the classroom with teacher-made videos allows students to self-direct their at-home learning. Many of these clips, however, still involve a one-day delivery of information, from teacher to student. Another approach is to allow children to make their own educational videos. They can enlighten their classmates with their creations, and they can teach themselves the material and the skills during the process of production."

Have you considered having students use the Adobe Voice app (iPad) to create materials that others may use to review work? This post shares how one school has done this with 8th grade students and provides 3 videos embedded in the post as well as a link to a page where you can see more student work.

The post also discussed "four key proficiencies" that students may demonstrate as they create an Adobe Voice video:

* Symbolic and visual metaphor - in choosing images and/or icons  and their definitions of words students are demonstrating understanding of figurative meaning.

* Narrative - students narrate their story and provide images that seamlessly move from one point to another within the story.

* Text- students select key text, highlighting vocabulary.

* Design - students learn critical elements necessary to convey content. Elements may include, music, images, voice, color, transitions, layout and more.

Create your own animations for your classes using these tools.

Gordon Dahlby's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:38 AM

Would like to see the list pruned to those software programs and applications in an age-appropriate list for students to use to represent/explore their own learning.  Animation makers, not consumers.

List of recommended resources to" purchase" for amination teaching tools under $50 and some are free. Good source for ideas you can use.

Check out this interactive visualization and see how quickly data is being generated online. You may want to snap some screen shots and have your students determine how quickly Twitter accounts are created, hours of YouTube videos are uploaded, items are purchased from Amazon and much more. A total of 23 sources are being updated second by second.

This graphic is an excellent discussion catalyst when talking about how far and fast information travels.

One of the best: 4. Exploration: It's the learner who has the initiative and takes control.

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 14, 2014 11:52 AM

Me gusta el concepto de "Evento de Aprendizaje". puede que con él, si es suficientemente amplio, se pueda resolver el batiburrillo de métodos, técnicas, estrategias, procedimientos, protocolos, tácticas, etcétera, con la que nuestros profes se enredan más y más.

Betty Skeet's curator insight, June 15, 2014 8:00 AM

Learning events you need in your class.
