This article gives great ideas on how to incorporate video chat into the classroom. My favorite is having more guest speakers. My students love when they can learn something from someone other than their teacher. It would make accessing speakers from all over the globe possible. 

Jasmine Villarreal's curator insight, July 19, 2016 5:10 PM
Now, with technology becoming more and more relevant, it isn't surprising that Video chats can be used in the classroom. At first I did not know how until I read this article. What really surprised me was that it can even be used to help with parent-teacher conferences when they have no time to come into the classroom.

"If you had not been living under the rock (read: away from the Internet), you know infographics are everywhere. They are on websites. They show up on whitepapers. They are in the ads. They are splashed all over newspapers. But of course, there are plenty of good reasons why content creators use infographics. These stunners are also excellent learning tools. Most human beings are visual learners. As eLearning designers, you too should tap into the immense instructional potential of infographics."

3 ways teachers can make learning more interactive

3 ways teachers can make learning more interactive | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

"From gamification to crowdsourcing, improve learning with these interactive elements

Today’s students are a uniquely interactive group. Most of the 80 million Americans who are part of the millennial generation—a group that comprises the lion’s share of today’s student population—can’t remember a time when they didn’t have instant access to the internet.  Most of them grew up playing video games, and ever since they can remember, they’ve been in constant contact with friends via social media platforms and text messages. A growing number of today’s instructors also fall into this group."

What are the current trends in Emerging Technology and why  are popular today in the educational world? Well, from 3D printing to Augmented Reality, there seems to be a lot of different forms of technology taking place to enhance learning experiences, versus just learning. Think of reading a traditional book to your 2nd graders, instead, you bring an iPad into the mix, and you bring a book to life using augmented reality. There are reasons for each of the trends and why and how they are becoming so popular in the educational setting for learning experiences.

"Thanks to the folks over at Khan Academy, alternative modes of delivering classroom instruction are all the rage. We’ve got face to face models, labs, rotations, online-only, self-blend, and of course, flipped. While there are numerous ways to implement a flipped classroom, the basic components include some form of prerecorded lectures that are then followed by in-class work."
