The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic

The Teacher's Guide To Badges In Education | Edudemic | Everything PLC | Scoop.it
Unfortunately, some students are not motivated by grades. Yes, this includes your brightest kids. Some kids could get an A on any test you give them, so they do not see the need for homework. Why do an hour of work every night when they know they are going to get an A on the test? Now you have a student who gets Fs on all his homework and As on all his tests. It turns into a C average, and he doesn’t care. How do you motivate him to do more or do better? The old-fashioned way – you give him a badge.

5 Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

5 Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom | Everything PLC | Scoop.it
Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

sarah kozlowski's curator insight, February 16, 10:56 AM

In the past, this application would be used in a collaborative sense to connect geographically dispersed learners. This article displays virtual collaboration reinvented through several of the mentioned activities. If Skype had a recording feature this would provide even more affordances to further reinvent itself within the e-learning realm.

Kelly's curator insight, February 23, 11:00 PM

While Skype offers an additional option, it is limited by the 1:1 connection (unless you pay for an upgraded version) as well as the inability to screenshare, etc. However, it may be a very good option when looking at international connections and low-cost alternatives and should not be summarily dismissed.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, February 25, 3:17 AM

As always you just have to have rich imagination and ideas how to use tools for creative and useful educational purposes  and it works!!! :)
