EasyChalk

EasyChalk | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

EasyChalk ist die erste Online-Whiteboard-Software, die auf allen Boards, Tablets, interaktiven Projektoren und anderen Systemen läuft. EasyChalk kann jederzeit, an jedem Ort und mit jeder Hardware verwendet werden.

Ulrike Grabe's insight:

Von der Website:

"Hardware-unabhängig:
Sie können EasyChalk z.B. auch auf einem iPad nutzen, Videos oder Internetseiten einbinden, Dokumente digital erstellen und mit anderen teilen, egal, ob Sie mit PC, Mac oder Linux arbeiten.

Neueste Technologie:
EasyChalk verwendet die neuesten Webtechnologien (AJAX und HTML5). Da Java und Flash nicht notwendig sind, kann EasyChalk auch mit einem iPad benutzt werden.

Einfache Bedienung:
EasyChalk ist einfach zu bedienen und bewusst nicht mit Funktionen überfrachtet. Dadurch wird die Konzentration auf das Wesentliche ermöglicht:
Nicht die Technik steht im Vordergrund, sondern die Inhalte.

Online:
Da EasyChalk online verfügbar ist, sind die erstellten Dateien immer da, wo sie gebraucht werden: bei der Unterrichtsvorbereitung zu Hause, in der Schule oder bei den Schülern, die auf freigegebene Dateien des Lehrers zugreifen können.

Einzige Voraussetzung: ein aktueller Internetbrowser."

Instructivism versus Constructivism

Sometimes it feels like we hear conflicting messages regarding the teacher's role. There seem to be fads and pendulum swings about the nature of teachers' work and their role in the learning process. In this video Dr Julia Atkin helps clarify what the role of the teacher is really about -- if being intentional and responsive about the learning and the learners' needs. This is a useful discussion video for PLCs or to use with the community.

Creating own meaning without being left alone to do it!  We need to know our learners better.  When do we nudge is a critical questions.  Being explicit about quality and prompting for learning. #TSNet formative assessment in our schools is on track. A repertoire of approaches is needed.

Occassionally, I still run into people that assume that online is easier than face to face classes.  To their surpriise, they often report at the end of the course that they have learned far more than they thought they would and that they really had to work to keep up!  I think I'll share thiis article in the first session of my online courses.

Peer editing in digital and mobile environments | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

For years now I have been happily using EtherPad based services like http://primarypad.com/ and http://sync.in/ to get participants on the training courses I deliver to work collaboratively to create and peer edit texts. Increasingly though I've been having problems with the reliability of the free services these companies provide and the lack of reliable compatibility with mobile devices.

Like Dropbox For TV, Chromecast Changes The Game | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Chromecast, a thumbdrive-sized dongle that jacks into a TV or projector's HDMI port, lets you take over a screen with your computer or mobile device. It's been called "magical" by various gadget reviewers (a term generally reserved for Apple devices), and it sold out instantaneously last week after Google announced it at an event in San Francisco.

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is defined as a reflective and reasonable thought process embodying depth, accuracy, and astute judgment to determine the merit of a decision, an object, or a theory (Alwehaibi, 2012). Creative thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions, and theories. Possessing the capacity to logically and creatively exercise in-depth judgment and reflection to work effectively in the realm of complex ideas exemplifies a critical thinker (Carmichael & Farrell, 2012).

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 30, 2013 2:24 PM

I had a banner on my classroom wall for years. It read: "Learn how to think!"


In the conservative backwaters of Nevada this was considered a radical approach.  I even had a parent rant at me, "How dare you teach my child to challenge authority!"  


Still I persisted and can now smile knowing I've helped some of my students on the road to critical thinking.   


Is critical thinking a subversive activity in your school?  If so, be subversive!

Team WhiteBoarding with Twiddla - Painless Team Collaboration for the Web

Team WhiteBoarding with Twiddla - Painless Team Collaboration for the Web | e-learning in higher education and beyond | Scoop.it

Twiddla is a free, no-setup, web-based meeting playground. Mark up websites, graphics, and photos, or start brainstorming on a blank canvas. Voice and Text chat too!

 

Twiddla is a real-time online collaboration tool. Its beauty is in its simplicity and accessibility: no plug-ins or downloads, no need to work around complex firewalls, no advanced scheduling. It’s available 24-7 and the only requirement is a computer with an internet connection and a web browser. It’s browser-agnostic, user friendly, and probably more fun than you're supposed to be having at work.

Ulrike Grabe's insight:

Combination of colaboration tools like online-whiteboard and etherpad.

You can load webpages, documents or pictures into the whiteboard space and mark it up. You can even type mathematical equations in there either by using LaTex or choosing from the menu to the right.

Rachael Johnston's curator insight, October 20, 2014 10:53 PM

It is important to build your own brand and to promote yourself positively. You want to be polite to other users and make sure you have nothing on your profile that could be damaging to your reputation. This includes swear words, inappropriate or rude comments, and pictures and videos of drinking or drugs.  This is really important for graduating students who, most likely, need to go through and delete pictures that have been tagged in one Facebook

Make sure you give credit to others if you share something of theirs. Also make sure you are writing your own posts and not just sharing others. However, make sure you are posting valuable and relevant information. Listen and think before you write and make sure you are using proper english. 

It is okay to have debates on social netowrks with other users, everybody has the right ti voice their opinion, but don't let things get too personal or nasty. 

It is also essential to understand that there are also hings to be very careful of when using social networks. For one, people are not always who they seem. You should also make sure you do not assume a false identity. It is important to keep some kind of professionalism, but don't change yourself or hide who you really are. 

You must also make sure you are abiding by the rules of the network and report others who dont. 

Last but certainly not least, be very careful about who you share things with. There are certain places to share certain things. For example, you may post something bout your personal life in your Facebook status, but it is not appropriate to do so on your LinkedIn profile. Do not share pictures and videos with strangers, you never know how they will use these.
