How Teachers Can Create Videos That Engage Students - Education Week

How Teachers Can Create Videos That Engage Students - Education Week | Digital Tools for Learning | Scoop.it
As a teacher, you may think slick production is the way to go in building engaging learning videos, but new data shows that variables within your control (and budget!) have more of an impact.

Via John Evans, Michail Darley
Michail Darley's insight:

This made me sit up with interest. Home made and imperfect videos for learning have more impact than slick, commercial ones if a few simple rules are followed. A must read!

Videos are a great way to engage students. Yes it can be time consuming but can be used over and over again.

WEAC's curator insight, August 31, 2014 10:28 AM

Here's a good back-to-school overview about creating classroom videos.

Reshelle Johnson's curator insight, September 1, 2014 11:36 AM

I enjoyed making instructional videos for my students and letting them make them as well.  This article covers why we should not be hung up on having a polished video because shorter, less formal videos can be more effective.  I used the app Explain Everything on my iPad to record lessons, but there are some who say that having the teacher in the video is more effective.  I wasn't ready for that.

Michail Darley's insight:

The student activities and the web resources menus are the places to go at Tammy's site. The handouts are Evernote presentations. Looks well worth spending half an hour looking for a gem or two.

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 100 Sites/Apps of 2013

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 100 Sites/Apps of 2013 | Digital Tools for Learning | Scoop.it

"Well, here it is my favorite and most popular post of the year, my Top 100 Sites/Apps of the year!!!  Continuing w/ the trend from last year, readers are going to find more and more apps on the list and less sites, as the flux in mobile learning and BYOD (bring your own devices) continues to rise.  Also, you'll notice that there are a lot of learning tools for Digital Storytelling & Math.  I believe the reason for this is because storytelling is a learning tool that can be used by a wide range of educators for any subject, and Math is a very popular subject w/ lots of diverse ways to go about teaching it.  W/ that I hope you enjoy this list and as always thanks again for reading!!!"

I am looking for new online tools to share with our teachers -- and this list looks like it has many that are easy to use -- and that enhance learning.  Like Geddit  -- where the students can give the teacher feedback on how well they understand -- sounds very cool.

It's still in Beta, but the word is that Legend is about as simple a tool to use as it gets. Don't be put off by the Primary School examples, it can be used at any level. Follow the links and sign up as a beta user. Let people know how you went.

10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe

10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe | Digital Tools for Learning | Scoop.it

They used to say content is king. But what really makes up content? Gone are the days when “content” meant purely text. Today, if you want to engage and enchant your customers, your content must have some visual cues. The human brain processes visual information much quicker than text. And with web 2.0 visuals like infographics, you can convey complex, boring data in a meaningful manner. Although infographics make things simpler, it can be time-consuming to create them. Here is a list of my top 10 tools to create your own beautiful infographics and more visual content (no Photoshop required!).
