Create a Free Video Letter to Santa Claus

Create a Free Video Letter to Santa Claus | Educational Ah-Ha's! | Scoop.it

This is a great idea for little kids who are too young to write to Santa Claus. Instead, you can create a video of your child talking to Santa (or you can use any video clip or even a still photo) and then upload it to Smilebox's Dear Santa letter creator. It's free!

The ability to adapt and the ability to encourage one's students to do the same.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:12 PM

Being a 21st Century educator is creating a learning environment that is social, collaborative and project based. Teachers, nor anyone else for that matter, will ever be able to keep up with all new technologies. The trick is to focus on digital technologies that facilitate student collaboration.

Michael MacNeil's comment, May 28, 2013 10:23 AM

Using the Socratic process the educator is a tutor.  The process  encourages evaluative and analytical thinking.

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 3, 2013 8:46 PM

The graphic (above) provides a nice visual to help understand the difference between project based learning and traditional units with a final project. Where are the differences? Traditional units have lectures, activities, quizzes, a review, an exam the project. With project bases learning you begin with an event plus a rubric and then move through a series of activites that help students reach benchmarks. Project based learning is authentic learning.

More information on this can be found in the post.

Melissa Jenkins 's curator insight, November 16, 2013 9:03 AM

Good visual as to how we should be shifting learning.

This article discusses way to incorporate project based learning into the classroom. Great ideas that could be used everyday in the classroom.  Ideas include allowing students to have a creative choice, give the project a purpose beyond the classroom, and allow students time to work in groups.
