The next wave in storytelling is short-form video :: Anish Patel | E-learning in VET | Scoop.it

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This interesting article explains how many companies are using the affordances provided by Meerkat and Periscope on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram in order to win customer attention. The techniques themselves are interesting and creative educators will surely find ways to harness this delivery system in service to their students.

Getting Started With Periscope In The Classroom - TeachThought

Getting Started With Periscope In The Classroom - TeachThought | E-learning in VET | Scoop.it
One of the more exciting apps that has recently made it’s way onto the social media scene is Periscope. Periscope is a live, interactive video streaming  app which allows users to broadcast media and footage while their followers engage in their content at the same time. When used in the classroom, students are able to connect with the world in real-time and interact with any of the content that is made available to them.

One of the ways Periscope can be used to enhance a lesson or unit is with a teacher-directed Periscope. Inviting students to interact in this way now allows for personalizing what is needed from each individual at that very moment. When creating content with a screencast program, teachers must already anticipate the needs of their class. With Periscope, teachers can broadcast content live to their students with the ability to tailor the video on the spot in response to student questions and conversations. Flipping a lesson, re-teaching a strategy, or communicating classroom information all in real-time now gives the teacher the power to easily personalize instruction through the interactivity of this app. Students on the other hand, now have the power to pick the path of their own learning.

Barbara Goebel's curator insight, January 23, 11:13 AM

A teacher-directed Periscope broadcast, teamed with Screencasting in the classroom, sounds like a fantastic tool for middle school students. I'll have to check out permissions, but this is definitely a strategy I'll develop.

Lars Thim's curator insight, January 25, 7:11 AM

Väldigt bra möjlighet för att jobba mer medialt. Tyvärr har appen använts på ett helt annat sätt bland eleverna i skolan. Vi kan inte förbjuda men vi kan hjälpa rätt.

THE 12 APPS OF CHRISTMAS - Home :: Dublin Institute of Technology

THE 12 APPS OF CHRISTMAS - Home :: Dublin Institute of Technology | E-learning in VET | Scoop.it
This 12 day free online project is aimed at students of all ages undertaking further education, third level education, and/or post-graduate study, and also at their tutors and lecturers. Each morning over 12 weekdays, starting Dec 1st 2015, a page will be released that reviews a particular mobile app and explores it in terms of how it could help students personalise their learning. More information on what personalisation means, and how it can benefit student learning, can be found on the student information page. An information page for educators has also been included and there it is explained what tutors and lecturers can do to create the type of environment that provides students with unique opportunities to personalise their learning.


Jim Lerman's insight:

The 12 days are over and all of the apps are now present on this website. All of the apps are focused on personalization of learning. While the site was developed for use primarily at the university level, most of the apps can be readily used in high schools. I found that about half of the apps were known to me and half were not. The pages for students and educators are quite useful. Very nice presentation; clever and thoughtful idea.

June Rumiko Klein's curator insight, September 5, 2015 7:16 PM

In all new technology, a successful implementation in the organization is the key ingredient to success.  A poor implementation does not mean the technology doesn't work.  A systems approach, with many adjustments for why "something failed" or didn't in all cases, will help to fine tune implementations.  Root cause analysis is key to avoiding reacting only to symptoms.  To do this type of analysis during and after implementation requires resources and leadership at the top.

Julie Jackson's curator insight, September 28, 2015 8:36 PM

This is a very controversial issue within our school district between the district and parents.  I hope this article will help our parents and staff have a better understanding of what blended learning incorporates into the classroom.

Déplacement de paradigme et les méthodes pédagogiques appropriées. 

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.
