How to share a screen in Skype

How to share a screen in Skype | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Did you know that as well as make video calls, you can also share your screen with Skype? Screen sharing is particularly useful if you need a friend to help with some trouble shooting on your computer or if you're having a business meeting. Screen sharing works fairly well on Skype although it does use more bandwidth. If you experience screen freezes or the screen sharing responds slowly, try deactivating video calling if you're in a video call.

To share a screen on Skype, just follow these steps:

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 20, 2:34 PM

Although some of these provide different ways to integrate technology, I often wonder if, instead of making tech "fit", the goal should be what learning/growth/idea/concept do we want to explore and then proceed from there instead of seeing what tool we have and directing the learning with the tool. 

Bernard Petter's curator insight, August 20, 6:14 PM

all you have to do is...give it some thought.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 20, 6:14 PM

Digital technologies should fit the learning and its context. It is not the other way around that learning fits the digital technologies.

TBL and PBL: Two learner-centred approaches

Via Todoele, Juergen Wagner, Miguel Ángel García

Todoele's curator insight, July 31, 2013 6:36 AM

Many newly qualified or inexperienced teachers tend to base their lesson planning on the traditional PPP approach (Presentation, Practice, Production) because it is reliable and it is a valid framework around which to base a series of classroom activities. It is also usually the best way of covering all the lexical areas and grammar points in the course book or syllabus. All good and well. The problem is that PPP serves the teacher’s needs but it is debatable whether or not it fulfills the needs of the learner.

 

The language presented and practiced does not take into account the particular needs of each learner; the language content is almost always dictated by the coursebook and/or syllabus. For this reason, many teachers, having experimented with the PPP approach turn to more learner-centred approaches where the needs of the learner are central to the lesson content. Two such approaches are TBL (Task-Based Learning) and PBL (Project-Based Learning).
