Questions App Lets You Ask And Answer Anything By Video - Edudemic

Questions App Lets You Ask And Answer Anything By Video - Edudemic | Digitized media | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Dunn

 

"It’s like a cross between Chatroulette and Quora with a sprinkling of Skype. A new app called ‘Questions – Ask and Answer’ lets you record a video of yourself asking a question … then wait for video replies to that question. Simple enough, right? You could use this app as a way to digital pen pals or, better yet, video-based pen pals with students from all over the world. However, it’s more about cultivating the best answer and less about social networking. In any case, the app is worth checking out and is quite fun to toy around with.

 

"You open up the app and can choose to ask or answer a question. Let’s say you have a burning question that Google or Facebook’s new Graph Search just can’t accurately answer. For example, you could ask something like ‘what do classrooms look like in New Zealand?’ After recording your 10-second video question, you upload and wait. While you wait, feel free to answer other questions asked by others."

Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 3:41 PM
Hi Robin, Yes, I understand and I think you're right not to test all the new tools, it is a lot of work and it is not always worth the trouble. What I can say after a few tests, is that the tool is slow and I do not really understand how it could be interesting for me. Finally, I think we can do the same thing with Twitterfall in a more simple and faster. But perhaps I have not yet understood what this tool can do.

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal | Digitized media | Scoop.it

By Kin Firtson

 

"New York technology teacher and trainer Rob Zdrojewski is flipping the flipped classroom--or, rather, his students are.

 

"Using a video technology known as screencasting, Zdrojewski, who will host two workshops at the upcoming FETC Conference in January, turns the popular phrase on its head by asking his students at Amherst Middle School to create instructional videos for their teachers. 

 

"The term 'flip your classroom' is really for the teachers to flip the classroom for the students, but this is like flipping the professional development for your staff--but having students teach the teachers," Zdrojewski says. "It's another catchphrase we've been using."

 

"He calls the student productions "Tech Under 90 Sec" or, alternatively, "Teaching the Teachers." The content focuses on educating teachers on how to use everyday technological tools like Gmail and Google Drive in under 90 seconds. Zdrojewski first assigned the projects this year when he realized valuable staff development days--the time when teachers typically receive technology training--were put aside in favor of sessions on Common Core State Standards, performance review, and teacher evaluation systems.

 

"We talk about not having enough time in our day to do stuff; well, now if you can find those pockets of time and you have 90 seconds or less, you can scroll through our mobile blog site, check out different videos, and learn something right on the spot," Zdrojewski says."

Below, you will find a link to a table I’ve made that puts information about these sources into an “at a glance” format. You’ll be able to easily reference what the tool is, what it does, and how it could be used in the classroom. You will also get access to links for the actual websites so that you can sign up and start creating! Before you do that, though, I’ve also got links to some examples on the final page for your perusal. (Keep in mind that these are just samples, not Pulitzer or Golden Apple material.) It is my hope that my own hours of time narrowing the field of free web tools will help others in their teaching, and help some new surfers to get up on that wave. Try to learn and implement one new thing this year… even that is a huge accomplishment. Come on in, the water’s fine!

Pawan Deshpande's comment, January 21, 2013 9:43 AM
Robin, thank you once again for pointing out the broken link.

There's only ONE broken link of which I am aware. The creation of eBook has been a four month long process and during the course of it one of the links has gone dark. The Color Association of the United States is a perfectly valid, and captivating example of picture curation, as noted in my previous comment. Lastly,the FedEx site is a perfectly valid example of curation that has served its purpose (criticizing the bailout), and is hence no longer updated -- but is still an interesting example of curation as a marketing tool.

There's nothing "curious" going on here. One of the sites has gone dark, as you pointed out. We have since updated the eBook to denote that the site is no longer active. Thanks for sharing the link -- hope you and your readership enjoy it.
Robin Good's comment, January 21, 2013 9:57 AM
Thank you Pawan for your kind clarifications that allow me to better appreciate this good editorial work you have done.

I think this type of publication is right on the mark in serving the needs of your audience and my criticism was only directed at highlighting how important, for anyone involved in this field, me included, to pay great attention to details as the reader often does not have the time to appreciate what is not immediately evident.

Please keep up such great work as it helps the whole industry grow while educating customers with great examples.
