nswer: It’s easy! Youtube has a great tool called Spotlight that lets you make any video interactive. It’s really handy for lessons and quizzes. Essentially, you can ask students a question — or a series of questions — and when they answer show them a personalized video response according to how they did.

Tim Scholze's curator insight, January 3, 2013 10:15 PM

This may have potential if it's not just used as a way to try and keep kids attention so they don't mess around during a video.

Don't miss this key paper on educational assessment! 


There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.


This is the first in Students at the Center’s new Deeper Learning Research Series—David T. Conley, well-known for his influential research on college readiness, argues that the time is ripe for a major shift in educational assessment.

We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space.

Inventing Infographics: Visual Literacy Meets Written Content

Inventing Infographics: Visual Literacy Meets Written Content | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it
As the density of visual information increases, consider introducing your students to infographics as a means of more thoughtfully engaging with and creating written content.
Dean Mantz's insight:

This article written by Brett Vogelsinger provides a nice overview of integrating Infographics.  Brett discusses how he went about the process of designing, developing, and using the visual literacy approach.  What I truly liked about the article was his list of discussion questions used with students.  Those questions were:

"We discussed the following:

Which of these was the best infographic and why?How does the writer try to engage an audience, even an audience who may not initially care about the topic?Is the text or the visual design most important in each of these? How does the use of color and white space affect your ability to focus on the main message of the infographic? How is font size used to emphasize certain facts?Does the infographic make a claim or develop an argument? If so, how can you tell?" The other key item that stood out in the article for me was the photo of two student infographic sketchings.  The use of a draft sketch is a great way to get students thinking of design and topic points.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, June 2, 9:57 AM

It's easy to lurk in an online course, to linger along the virtual walls of the virtual classroom. The astute online instructor pays attention to the social presence of each student. Just as there are those who can seem to take up all the space and all the air in a brick-and-mortar classroom, there are those who seem to be able to do the same in a virtual classroom and forum. Then those who feel less confident in their knowledge, and perhaps in their writing, will be less likely to participate.


When conducting a webinar, wait time is HARD. We get anxious about the silence. As a presenter/moderator, what you can't know is if someone is wrestling with the mute button. It happens to all of us, so we need to be sure to allow several extra seconds not only to allow folks to formulate their thoughts but to wrangle the technology.


I like the idea of lingering in that virtual presence. Sometimes we're so glad an online event is over that we sign off too quickly. We don't have the luxury, if you will, of packing up our things as we do in a physical space. That packing up allows people to visit. When we pause in our packing, it signals our willingness to spend more time, that we're in no hurry to leave. Finding a way to pack up virtually, to signal that willingness to talk is important, especially for those who have been reluctant to share in the larger group. Plus sa meme change, plus c'est la meme chose.

Viljenka Savli's curator insight, October 17, 3:11 AM

“It’s hard to sit there and push yourself for hours,” Mr. Carey says. “You’re spending a lot of effort just staying there, when there are other ways to make the learning more efficient, fun and interesting.”

The first step toward better learning is to simply change your study environment from time to time. Rather than sitting at your desk or the kitchen table studying for hours, finding some new scenery will create new associations in your brain and make it easier to recall information later.

“The brain wants variation,” Mr. Carey says. “It wants to move, it wants to take periodic breaks.”

This is one of the important highlights in the article. Worth reading and doing some changes on yourself and when teaching others :)

Last week, Pocket Gems’ storytelling app Episode registered its 500,000th writer—not bad for a product that launched less than six months ago. While many of those half-million would-be creators are obviously amateurs, veterans of Marvel Comics and the CW’s Supernatural have signed up to created interactive animated serials, what Pocket Gems CEO Daniel Terry describes…

 

How Episode works is simple; readers download the app (via Apple’s App Store,Google Play or the Amazon App Store), select one of the available stories—choosing from “Hollywood Crush,” “Campus Crush,” “Rich Witches,” “In A Perfect World,” or “Stranded at Sea”—and follow along, safe in the knowledge that, at certain points in the story, you’ll get to make choices that decide what happens next.
