How to Record Audio from a Bluetooth Mic on the iPhone or iPad - How To Geek | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Recording audio from a Bluetooth microphone isn’t something that iOS can do out of the box, but that doesn’t mean it’s not entirely possible. With a little help from a third-party app, you can use a wireless headset and record your voice through that if you need to.

“STEAM: Creating A Maker Mindset” by @vvrotny and @speterson224

“STEAM: Creating A Maker Mindset” by @vvrotny and @speterson224 | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
As parents and teachers, we encourage our kids to become well rounded people who love learning.   In our world of cell phones, ipads, and computers, it’s easy for kids to become passive consumers of media and technology.   We, however, want are kids to be active, curious, and creative.   Since I’m a musician and a software engineer, I hope that my kids learn to express themselves emotively and become creative thinkers.   We’re trying to foster a family culture where we are active, encourage tinkering, and building physical things with our hands.   

With these ideas in mind, I wanted to share a great video I found by Vinnie Vrotny and Sheryl Peterson entitled “STEAM: Creating A Maker Mindset.”   In this conference talk from the K12 Online Conference in 2013, they share their experiences encouraging a “maker” mindset in the Quest Academy .   Their school has a very unique class teaching design thinking to kids.    It’s giving me lots of ideas for building a maker environment for our family.    In this class, Sheryl encourages her students to invent a creative design problem and solve it.   With the tools and support of the teacher, the kids are encouraged to build their design.    In some cases, the kids ask Sheryl to assign a problem to them.    The kids aren’t used to having creative freedom to design and make.    In these cases, Sheryl encourages the students to keep thinking.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 16, 2015 12:31 PM

Storytelling isn't about words, really. All trained storytellers know that the storyteller's job is to feed images to audiences. Image riding or image crafting, whatever you call it -- when we use words we are image writing.


Images are powerful, so it's no surprise visual storytelling is a hot topic. As this quick post shares, retention after 3 days for a text and a picture is 65%. Text and audio only? 10%


The next part of the post shares graphic facilitator Dan Roam's rules for what images to share based on the type of information you want to convey. Yeah! The complex is made simple :)


I also really like that this post is actually based on real research -- that's cited. So we know this is real.


CAVEAT: This post is about sharing information -- storifying information, in other words. I still -- after many years -- vividly remember stories I've heard from all kinds of storytellers (professional and not) and never a picture was shared. Yet those images/stories conveyed orally stick with me today.


So don't go thinking that every time you share a story, you have to show a picture or use PowerPoint. Not true. Except on the web.


So when the medium calls for images to accompany your stories -- use the visuals in this post to guide you.

Jackie Gerstein shares nine questions that you might consider asking yourself as you design new units. Two are listed below. The infographic she designed, with nine questions is in the image above, and you can access a list of the nine questions as well as the infographic in her post.

* Will the learners get the chance to share their work with other learners with a more global audience?

* Will the learners find the learning activities engaging? interesting? relevant? useful?

Gerstein's questions help you focus on the learner.They may help you transform lessons in ways you had not envisioned.

Charting culture

"This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble. The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The team is based at the University of Texas at Dallas."

#Makerspace for Education - University of British Columbia MET #makered | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Despite the popularity and trend of the term “makerspace”, educators have to search hundreds of articles, websites and books to determine what this term is, how to begin, where to locate materials and determine the educational significance. Another complication is that the resurgence of this DIY movement found its grassroots in the public population and is just starting to make its way back to education. This makes navigating materials from an educational lens even more challenging.  Makerspace for Education, is a collaborative digital space for educators to explore how to create and use makerspaces in their own environments and will help to transform pedagogies of individual educators through immersion in the context and the support of a community of practice.

This post, by Alan November, ask six question that help districts help "clarify for educators the unique added value of a digital learning environment, and whether their assignments were making the best use of this environment.

November believes that innovation is critical, and shares his perspective that technology needs to move beyond the ability to function and move the school community (teachers, staff and students) to be more innovative, which requires that the "design of learning" that will lead to new levels of student achievement.

The six questions he raises are below:

1.  Did the assignment build capacity for critical thinking on the web?

2.  Did the assignment develop new lines of inquiry?

3.  Are there opportunities for students to make their thinking visible?

4.  Are there opportunities to broaden the perspective of the conversation with authentic audiences from around the world?

5.  Is there an opportunity for students to create a contribution (purposeful work)?

6.  Does the assignment demo “best in the world” examples of content and skill?

Additional information is included with each question in the post. How would you score your school or district?

tom cockburn's curator insight, December 24, 2014 6:17 AM

Motivation and cooperative learning are good uses problems arise for people in the evaluation and assessment and that compromises the acceptance of such by potential employers etc. The difficulty is in discerning the difference between collaborative or shared learning as opposed to simple collusion in getting answers which may not entail much,if any learning,other than how to cheat and thus disadvantage genuine learners who have made an effort.Thus making use of others' research to inform your own projects is not the same as claiming others' work as your own...and that is a big selling point for systems like Turnitin and others.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."
