The Best PowerPoint Alternatives for Creating Great Presentations - The Digital Shift | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

"We’ve all endured “death by PowerPoint.” It’s a painful experience for the audience and probably not all that fun for the presenter either. To help my students deliver effective presentations—free of those deadly bullet points—I have my go-to applications."

Richard Byrne shares alternatives to PowerPoint with a twist. He includes additional tools that help students outline their stories; find high quality images that are public domain and/or Creative Commons; and a variety of web-based presentation tools as well as Haiku Deck, and app for the iPad.

In total he shares eight resources providing links to all as well as short descriptions.

This isn't directly related to film production. Still, we all are called upon to make presentations. Some great resources here. Perhaps even helpful for producers, directors, DoP's.

This infographic provides a look at how we may develop 21st century critical thinkers. Using an image of a brain with eight areas that look at skills we need to know how to use,and that correspond with 21st century skills found in the Common Core and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

In addition there are six that we as teachers should be doing within our classrooms including:

* Integrate critical thinking skills within and across all content areas

* Establish safe, intellectually risk-free learning environments

* Allow time to develop critical thinking skills.

There is also a section called "Your Students' Path to Critical Thinking" that includes 25 recommendations.

The infographic is also available as a pdf file that you may download in an 11" x 17" version at the website.

Creative Conference Formats - Meetings And Conventions

Creative Conference Formats - Meetings And Conventions | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

 In response to a need to keep and increase attendance at conferences, planners have developed new education formats that create unique, immersive experiences.

 

Easy access to information is changing the way association members engage with their education. Today, organizers are faced with unprecedented competition from social media, webcasts and countless other online resources that allow potential conference attendees to learn just about whatever they want, whenever and wherever they want.

 

"People don't need to wait for formal learning opportunities anymore," says Kathleen Edwards, president of The Learning Evangelist LLC, a Maryland-based consultancy specializing in effective learning environments and strategies. "They're driving their own learning, so where's the incentive to travel to a conference and spend the money if they can get what they need somewhere else?"

My View: Flipped classrooms give every student a chance to succeed – Schools of Thought - CNN.com Blogs | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Video and article

 

by Greg Green,  principal at Clintondale High School in Clinton Township, Michigan. I’m a principal at Clintondale High, a financially challenged school near Detroit.

 

At Clintondale High School, our education model wasn’t working, and the people suffering most were students. We recognized that a change was needed and applied for a grant from TechSmith, a local company that makes screen and lecture recording software. They provided us with some technology licenses and helped us create a flipped class structure, which we first implemented in the ninth grade and eventually put into action for the entire school.

 

At Clintondale High School, we have been using this education model for the past 18 months. During this time, our attendance rate has increased, our discipline rate decreased, and, most importantly, our failure rate - the number of students failing each class - has gone down significantly. When we first implemented this model in the ninth grade, our student failure rate dropped by 33% in one year.

 

In English, the failure rate went from 52% to 19%; in math, 44% to 13%; in science, 41% to 19%; and in social studies, 28% to 9%. In September of 2011, the entire school began using the flipped instruction model, and already the impact is significant. During the first semester of the year, the overall failure rate at the school dropped to 10%. We’ve also seen notable improvement on statewide test scores, proving that students’ understanding of the material is better under this model.

A Focus on Attendance Is Key to Success

A Focus on Attendance Is Key to Success | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

By Robert Balfanz and Hedy Chang

 

The premise is simple: Students need to attend school daily to succeed. But the experience of modern American education demonstrates a reliance on basic assumptions regarding attendance that aren’t true, leading to a failure to tabulate and use simple data that could raise the educational performance of our students.
