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."

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.

ghbrett's insight:

This looks to be a very interesting and useful making activity. #teachtheweb already has introduced me to new tools for producing and publishing content and media for web resources that can be used for education and other areas.

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of your iPad.

 

I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool, the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again." from source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com

ghbrett's insight:

This article includes a link to a PDF of a two sided letter size document that is a very handy, quick reference to the iPad for beginners, novices, and even long time users who may have not used certain features for a while.

Inside Outside - sustainable printmaking project LCC | process.arts

"Inside Outside Sustainable Printmaking

 

An exploration of sustainable printmaking, away from the normal studio environment.

 

3 workshops, 3 locations, 3 processes. A challenge to revisit the whole process of printmaking, considering parameters such as sustainability, environment, resources and waste. An experience outside the comfort of the studio to let the natural elements changing staff and students' way of thinking.


(see: http://insideoutsideprintmaking.blogspot.co.uk )"

ghbrett's insight:

This is a wonderful short film about "3 workshops, 3 locations, 3 processes." in about 3:45 minutes. It reminds me of the joy, frustration, and satisfaction of working with students in the "out of doors." What seem to be barriers are overcome in small and in large steeps. Collaboration becomes a necessity making the end product, Art, something shared. We need more sharing. Consider taking the metaphor from this film and apply it to other disciplines. Open Your mind, open your Students minds, and open the minds of the World.

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.
