Donald Clark Plan B: 10 ideas on use of much maligned TALKING HEAD videos in online learning

Donald Clark Plan B: 10 ideas on use of much maligned TALKING HEAD videos in online learning | Education technology | Scoop.it

Having cut my teeth in video production using presenters, shooting lots of talking heads and generally learning how best to use video in learning, I’m not for throwing the this baby out with the bathwater. The talking head is a well-used and respected form of communication. In learning it can be used to enhance online learning, if used with care, even innovatively.

Learning How To #Code in EVERY Classroom! By @SamPatue · TeacherCast #hourofcode #makered

Learning How To #Code in EVERY Classroom! By @SamPatue · TeacherCast #hourofcode #makered | Education technology | Scoop.it

"The hour of code school wide challenge of “can we get every student to code for one hour” is a great starting point. This also gets the administration thinking about computer science because they realize they don’t have anyone teaching that.


But if we get brave and kick the challenge up a notch we could change the very fabric of our school culture. You are asking “How do I kick it up a notch?” and “If I kick it up a notch may I still retain the right to subsequently kick out the jams?”


Kick it up a notch by challenging your school to have kids code for an hour in EACH CLASS during CS education week. That is right. get coding happening in EVERY SUBJECT.


You can get started now and check out the huge collection of activities"

The history of space exploration mapped

The history of space exploration mapped | Education technology | Scoop.it

"Humans have dreamed about spaceflights forever but only in the second half of the 20th century were developed rockets that were powerful enough to overcome the force of gravity to reach orbital velocities that could open space to human exploration. The awesome poster called Chart of Cosmic Exploration documents every major space mission starting from the Luna 2 in 1959 to the DSCOVR in 2015. The map traces the trajectories of every orbiter, lander, rover, flyby, and impactor which ever left the Earth’s orbit and successfully completed its mission."
