MFaculty's curator insight, July 11, 9:03 AM

GHO4EDU is a collection of GHO that anyone can replicate. The idea is to demonstrate what others have already successfully done, then incorporate the best parts into your own GHO.

 

Of particular interest to faculty is the professional development GHO, where you can envision taking HR mandatory training up a notch! Further, connecting peer to peer across the spectrum of your specific discipline is a great way to initiate and then foster collaboration and professional networking.

 

Well worth the read!

We’ve shared some tips to take great pictures of fireworks with iPhone before, but fireworks are obviously in motion, so perhaps the best way to capture a firework show is with some great video. Fortunately, the iPhone and iPad have a wonderful video recording camera built right in, and with a few tricks, you’ll be able to capture stunning video of a firework reports, explosions, or even the entire show, using nothing but the iPhone and it’s built-in feature set.

For teachers interested in transforming their social studies classroom from the traditional mode to a more digitally based curriculum will find this fascinating. The ability to convert old PowerPoint presentations into videos that can be directly uploaded to YouTube are a tremendous offering. Creating and crafting your own podcast channel via YouTube is a terrific way of allowing your lessons to go home with the class and allows you more time in class to spend engaging students in the content!

7 mitos y realidades sobre la formación online.

 

Mito nro. 1, no se puede obtener un empleo acreditando un diploma logrado mediante aprobación de cursos en línea.  Reaalidad: 62% de los profesionales de RRHH creen que los diplomas obtenidos por cursos online son equivalentes o mejores que los logrados en universidades tradicionales.

 

Mito nro 2, sólo universidades de dudosa reputación ofrecen programas que se imparten totalmente en línea. Realidad: el porcentaje de instituciones que ofrecen programas completamente virtuales se ha duplicado en la última década hasta alcanzar 62.4%.

 

Mito nro. 3, los programas virtuales contribuyen con el aislamiento de sus estudiantes. Realidad: los cursos distribuídos en el formato presencial tradicional pueden también incentivar el aislamiento.

 

Mito nro. 4, obtener un diploma en línea es tomar el camino fácil. Realidad: si bien es cierto que el formato eLearning es más flexible, ello no significa que los cursos dictados en ésta modalidad sean menos rigurosos.

 

Mito nro. 5, "Tengo todo el tiempo del mundo para culminar mi curso online". Realidad: si intenta retrazar indefinidamente el cumplimiento de las tareas asignadas en un curso online, muy problamente, no superá ese curso. La procastinación no funciona el mundo real ni en el virtual.

 

Mito nro. 6, usted no aprenderá mucho tomando cursos vía eLearning. Realidad: investigaciones recientes indican que no hay diferencias significativas entre los resultados de aprendizaje por estudios virtuales y el método presencial tradicional.

 

Mito nro. 7, puedo hacer fraude en los programas de formación online. Realidad: muchas escuelas online han implementado sistemas de protección antifraude. Algunas otras exigen la realización de exámenes presenciales a sus alumnos. ¡ El gran hermano siempre está observando...!

iPad, the Photographer's Friend | Enlight Blog

iPad, the Photographer's Friend | Enlight Blog | E-learning | Scoop.it
The iPad isn’t famed for its photographic abilities. But in reality, it is one of the most useful devices a photographer could own.

Everyone who takes pictures has a favored digital workflow. For some, it is entirely iPhone-based, using filters and careful framing in preparation for the latest Instagram triumph. For others, it is a laptop operation which takes hours of patient sorting, followed by adjustment and layering. But there is a third way. The iPad’s processing power cannot compete with that of a computer, and its photographic credentials are less celebrated than those of a smartphone, and yet, you could argue that it combines the best of mobile and desktop.

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015 | E-learning | Scoop.it

I have blogged about using time-lapse before and it appears in our iPad Teacher Guide App (www.ipadteachers.com), notably to capture shadows moving across a playground. We use the time-lapse feature in I Can Animate a lot and even more recently where I have supported a number of schools who are capturing mini-beasts and even chicks hatching. The good thing about it is that it can be used with all year groups across a range of subjects but predominantly in Science.

 

The image above shows a typical workflow that we use combining I Can Animate, iMovie and Book Creator with Showbie used as the resource and assessment tool. The rule that we follow is that if the process takes less than a day (e.g Shadows across the playground, dough rising etc) then we use time-lapse. If it is longer than a day (e.g seeds growing) then we take the photos in I Can Animate manually because we want to use the iPads inbetween time.

This Chrome app enables users to draw on top of webpages using things such as a
● stylus,
● trackpad,
● mouse…etc.
It's particularly useful for annotating and illustrating content on a webpage.
NOTE: Whiteboard, at the time of posting this, is still in beta phase and as such several useful features are still in development stages. These include the ability to save your work in image file, add different shapes and lines to your annotations etc.
Currently, users can
● change the background settings of a webpage,
● change its colour and
● customize its opacity,
● add lines and
● draw using different colours,
● add and customize layers.
To start using Whiteboard...
● install the app onto Chrome,
● click on the icon of the app on the menu bar and select ‘Do it’.
A menu will be displayed on the leftside of the page that enable users to work on the background, line and layer settings.
To delete anything already drawn, on the webpage, just click erase or better click on the Whiteboard icon on the menu bar and select ‘Quit it’.
Well worth giveing it a try to see what you think of it.
Ideal for live on-line courses. MOOCs etc.
