Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."

27 Ways To Promote Intrinsic Motivation In The Classroom - Te@chThought

27 Ways To Promote Intrinsic Motivation In The Classroom - Te@chThought | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"We’ve talked about the definition of intrinsic motivation in the past. We’ve also talked about some basic ways to improve student motivation.

 

This time, it’s Mia MacMeekin‘s turn to speak to you about the same, but through gridded, blocked, and easy to read infographics. The graphic starts with a definition for both intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation, then offers 27 verbs that can help promote that magic stuff that is characterized by curiosity, effort, engagement, and academic success.

 

Some were a little iffy–”praise” and “milestones” seemed a little closer to extrinsic motivation. But the vast majority are useful to consider as you design units, lessons, and activities this school year."

Mary Starry's curator insight, July 20, 9:01 PM

As pharmacy educators, we tend to immediately assume we'll be producing a "knowledge" focused video for flipped classrooms or eLearning. However, there are times when a motivational, how-to, or simulation video would be more appropriate for the content and provide an interesting contrast for the learner.  This short article provides information and examples of the different types of videos you can use to meet your objectives.

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :)

Announcing: ClassDojo goes school-wide :) | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Hello, folks :)


Since ClassDojo’s beginnings, millions of teachers have signed up to use ClassDojo in their classrooms. Over time, we’ve been excited to hear those teachers spread it to other teachers in their schools and grade-levels - creating entire ‘ClassDojo schools’ where every teacher uses ClassDojo, or whole grade-level teams using ClassDojo to help students develop the behaviors and skills they need for success.


Today, we’re thrilled to announce two features that make using ClassDojo across an entire grade-level or school - or even with just a few other teachers - a lot easier! Now, for the first time, you’ll be able to connect with other teachers in your school to teach classes together, share student rosters, and track your students’ progress across all their different classes. These features have been the most popular requests from teachers everywhere over the last few years - we hope you like them :) 


There are two ways to work together with other ClassDojo teachers, Shared Students and Shared Classes:





With Shared Students, teachers can connect with each other and share individual students to fill each other’s classes. Setting up your classes will be faster by pulling from the school roster, and you can also view students’ reports from their other teachers’ classes.




With Shared Classes, you and your colleagues can teach the same class, awarding feedback points in each others’ classes, and instantly messaging parents! This feature is great for teaching assistants and also classes that move together during the school day.



Read more details on the ClassDojo Community Forum!


We’ve been hard at work building these features to help you use ClassDojo across your whole school or grade level - and this is just the first step! We hope you love what we’re launching today, and we’d love your feedback - let us know what you think in the comments below, or by emailing us at hello@classdojo.com :)
