PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web

PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
You may have already heard about PhotoMath, the new iPhone app that lets you point it at a math problem on a textbook and then solves it while showing all the work involved.


Some are immediately reacting by citing it’s potential use in “cheating,” while others cheer that it might force math teachers and textbook publishers to be more creative in how they teach math.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

It is a cheater's dream or a way to provide instant process tutoring?

Wow this opens up some good debates on how we teach maths! An app that does all the work

Irmgard Huppe's curator insight, October 31, 2014 6:57 AM

I think I will try this!

Lee Hall's curator insight, October 31, 2014 4:09 PM

I think it is helpful when you are working at home to be able to solve a problem and make sure it is right. I hated finding out I had completed a page of problems all the wrong way.

YouTube is the second web search engine... just after google, and the 3rd social media around the world.

 

YouTube is the 3rd largest social media site on the planet. And its activity makes up about 20% of all social media activity.

YouTube is also the web’s 2nd most popular search engine — behind parent company Google!

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.

THE Journal January 2013: The Math of Khan | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Some love it. Some hate it. Khan's simple video tutorial approach has fueled interest in the flipped classroom and blended self paced learning. This is not a new idea or a new technology. However it all comes at a time when teachers need time to teach and the fascination and promise of online resources is at it's peak.   


This links to an online editon of the THE Journal. Always a good read.

New Common Craft Video: APIs

New Common Craft Video: APIs | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
 
What it teaches:
 
This video tells the story of Carson, who has an idea to sell interactive maps on his website. Rather than buying and implementing all the tools himself, he discovers APIs that help him get started quickly and build upon a foundation provided by specialists.  It teaches:
  • Why APIs can be important for organizations and websites
  • How APIs can differ from buying technology outright
  • How APIs work, using examples of map data and credit card transactions
  • What APIs can provide websites and applications
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Common Craft does a consistently exemplary job of explaining technical concepts.  You may not know what an API is. This video will help you understand an important idea that can change how you work and learn online.

How To Curate Content and Build Authority With Scoop.it | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

I first encountered Scoop.it months ago when I clicked on a Tweet from my friend Anise Smith.


 At that time, I’d never heard of Scoop.it and I was so amazed with the design and the interactive features of the service, that I contacted her right away for an invite. Immediately I became addicted to Scroop.it and started telling my friends about it and sending them invites. DiTesco from iBlogZone was equally impressed with Scoop.it and even months later
