Note-Taking with iPads

Note-Taking with iPads | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
I vividly remember how I first learned to take notes. My sixth grade geography teacher lectured in outline style: "Roman Numeral one - China. A - Qin Dynasty. 1 - Rulers . . . " We wrote down precis
ghbrett's insight:

This is a great little article, not only does the author present the reader with tools, but also provides scenarios of use. She presents how teachers of different disciplines provide frameworks for taking notes -- a lesson of me the reader beyond just an application list. This is well worth reading.

 

Oh and she points to Sunni Brown's TED video about "Doodler's Unite. " which emphasizes the visual value of doodles and graphics for making notes in clase

Turning graffiti into a public art education program - Video on TODAY.com

Turning graffiti into a public art education program - Video on TODAY.com | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"Turning graffiti into a public art education program
Graffiti is a common sight on city structures throughout America, but the Mural Arts Program is taking what is commonly a crime and using it to change the face of city art and arts education. NBC’s Craig Melvin reports." from source: http://video.today.msnbc.msn.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This is an inspiring video about the impact of taking lemons (graffiti) and making it into a learning experience and Art / Mural Art in multimedia. The video points out how Art is not just drawing, painting, or making. To make Art it takes mathematics, planning, engineering, and Collaboration. Although brief this is a great thought provoking piece on how Art can be used in local education to enrich a community's pride and collective action.

Record & Share your Ideas | Present.me | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"Enhance learning with Present.me by providing not just a friendly face, but some great content to go with it. As a teacher, you can use our product for the 'flipped classroom' model to give a recorded lesson on Present.me, which students can then watch in their own time, over and over again if they so desire.

 

This leaves you extra time in class for more interactive work. Or why not submit a Present.me to students after a class to help reinforce a key point or idea?" from source: https://present.me/

ghbrett's insight:

"Present.me is a really easy way to record and share your presentations using your webcam." Present.me is a new service. It is a premium type. The FREE version is limited and then there are scales based on monthly fees. All in all it looks like a pretty interesting idea.

The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now

The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"These aren’t single tools to “try,” but news ways to think about how learners access media, how educators define success, and what the roles of immense digital communities should be in popularizing new learning models." from: source: http://www.teachthought.com/


Via Ariana Amorim, Barbara Truman, ghbrett
ghbrett's insight:

This is a good article about shifts from traditional modes of learning and training to come in line with emerging trends in teaching and training. It presents a wholistic concept for how a teacher can combine analog and digital processes and concetps to ensure successful experiences for the learner.

Barbara Truman's curator insight, February 28, 2013 8:12 AM

Many of these principles apply to cross-generational learning that can take place all the time, everywhere if we figure out how to make it so.

Peer-to-Peer Learning Handbook | Peeragogy.org

Peer-to-Peer Learning Handbook | Peeragogy.org | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
"With YouTube, Wikipedia, search engines, free chatrooms, blogs, wikis, and video communication, today’s self-learners have power never dreamed-of before. What does any group of self-learners need to know in order to self-organize learning about any topic? The Peeragogy Handbook is a volunteer-created and maintained resource for bootstrapping peer learning.

This project seeks to empower the worldwide population of self-motivated learners who use digital media to connect with each other, to co-construct knowledge of how to co-learn. Co-learning is ancient; the capacity for learning by imitation and more, to teach others what we know, is the essence of human culture. We are human because we learn together. Today, however, the advent of digital production media and distribution/communication networks has raised the power of co-learning to a new level." -- from the source: http://peeragogy.org/

  This project / living document for co-eLearning will be a site worth participating in or a the least reading periodically. Howard Rheingold, under the "Resources" section has a post about "How to use this Handbook" at http://peeragogy.org/how-to-use-this-handbook/ ;  So be sure to check this out. BTW there is an initial YouTube! video clip by Howard introducing Peeragogy at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDuSpOUtyJE

SMALLab: Blending disciplines, firing up students

SMALLab: Blending disciplines, firing up students | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"Officially founded in 2010, SMALLab Learning’s title project (which stands for Situated Multimedia Arts Learning Laboratory) had been in the works for several years prior. Dr. David Birchfield led a collaborative team of nine co-inventors and twelve contributors at Arizona State University. The group included designers, educators, and researchers from disciplines as diverse as performing arts and computer science, among many others.

The goal, says Birchfield, was this: what was a “holistic way to blend the disciplines”? How could this then be applied to a physically active experience? The technical name for this is “embodied learning,” which is the combination of kinesthetic, collaborative, and multimodal components. The theory is is that people learn through their bodies. They learn well when they work together." -- from source: http://www.popcitymedia.com/

Note: This is an interesting article to an innovative learning environment. The author presents a scenario of what the classroom environment is as well as how the students use it for "embodied learning." This is a worthwhile read.

Historypin | Home

Historypin | Home | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together to share glimpses of the past and build up the story of human history.

 

... Everyone has history to share: whether its sitting in yellowed albums in the attic, collected in piles of crackly tapes, conserved in the 1000s of archives all over the world or passed down in memories and old stories.

 

Each of these pieces of history finds a home on Historypin, where everyone has the chance to see it, add to it, learn from it, debate it and use it to build up a more complete understanding of the world.

 

Historypin has been developed by the not-for-profit company We Are What We Do [ http://wearewhatwedo.org/ ], in partnership with Google."

 

from source: http://www.historypin.com/

 

#History #collaboration #HistoryPin #Education #research #story #stories #archives #conservation

 

ghbrett's insight:

This is a novel approach to the idea of sharing photographs and content in a historical timeline, geographically mapped, and arranged by categories. There are a couple projects that target education with suggestions for teachers. This model would be one that other disciplines might consider to engage public, professional, or organizations to share topical multimedia and content.

PLN Starter Kit: A Resource for Fledgling Connected Educators (students, and life-long learners)

"This crowdsourced resource is meant to help those who are just beginning to start their journey as a "connected educator." It is not exhaustive. In fact, if all goes to plan, it will be a perpetual work in progress - just like the PLNs it will hopefully help build.

 

... PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. Teachers have always had learning networks—people we learn from and share with. Teachers are information junkies. We’re also social. Put the two together and you have a personal learning network." from source: http://www.livebinders.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This site is a living document with links to very many resources related to creating, using, and understanding the values of Personal Learning Networks. It is a collection of information for a teacher, trainer, student, or life long learner that will help them to begin developing their own Personal Learning Network resources.

Doesn't this venture rather far down path of specialization? First....what can it do that you can't do with several other platforms? Second...how is it any better than putting a YouTube Channel on a mobile platform?
Robin Good's comment, March 7, 2013 5:31 AM
Wanderingsalsero, name one other platform that gives the same features across devices and OSes and also name one that integrates a real-time meeting option supported by VoIP. Then we can discuss further.

How to Create Your Own Textbook — With or Without Apple | MindShift

How to Create Your Own Textbook — With or Without Apple | MindShift | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it
Aggregation, curation, creation: A step-by-step guide to creating your own textbook -- and involving your students along the way. 

 

"Apple’s iBooks2 and authoring app has created big waves in education circles. But smart educators don’t necessarily need Apple’s slick devices and software to create their own books. How educators think of content curation in the classroom is enough to change their reliance on print textbooks.

 

As the open education movement continues to grow and become an even more rich trove of resources, teachers can use the content to make their own interactive textbooks. It might seem daunting, but the availability of quality materials online and the power of tapping into personal learning networks should make it easier.

 

Here’s how to create a digital textbook and strategies for involving the students in its development in three steps." -- from source: http://blogs.kqed.org/

ghbrett's insight:

A short but useful article / cook book on creating eTextBooks for Apple iBooks. The author cites 3 categories, includes a useful chart and closes with links to related & useful sites. A worth while read.

Data Driven Journalism

Data Driven Journalism | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"This website is dedicated to providing anyone interested in getting started with data driven journalism with a collection of learning resources, including relevant events, tools, tutorials, interviews and case studies. The data journalism community and mailing list are dedicated to strengthening the community of journalists, designers, data providers and others, and encouraging collaboration and exchange of expertise.

 

 About our data driven journalism initiative

  The initiative is aimed at enabling more journalists to use data-sets as a source for reporting by providing them with the necessary skills, techniques and tools according to their level of expertise. In order to do so the EJC and its partners will:

  > Provide a series of hands on workshops across Europe and online training sessions with leading data journalists and open data experts to demonstrate how to find, analyse, and create new stories using data-sets.
  > Expand and strengthen an international network of data journalists, designers, developers, and others to encourage collaboration and to exchange knowledge of expertise and best practices with each other.
  > Create a collection of online resources - including interviews, case studies, and tutorials about how data can be used in the newsroom.

 

  If you are interested in partnering with us so as to help achieve these goals or if you have any other inquiries please contact the website editor Liliana Bounegru (bounegru@ejc.net).

 

  This initiative receives partial funding from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science." -- from the Source

 

NOTE: This site is one of the first I have seen that is devoted to the interpretation and re-use of raw data in articles and reports. As we have more and more information produced as statistics, analytics, and raw data, it will become more important to be able to interpret and communicate the content in a meaningfull way for the audience(s).
