A Handy Chart Featuring Over 30 Educational YouTube Channels for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
“ Below is a curated collection of some of the best YouTube channels created by teachers for teachers. This is a work we have published a few months ago and is meant to provide teachers with a handy resource where they can access a plethora of educational video materials to use in their instruction. We have arranged these channels into the following categories: channels for science teachers, channels for math teachers, channels for chemistry and physics teachers, channels for learning English, channels for educational documentaries, and channels that provide intelligent content for students. Enjoy ”

Which of These 4 Instructional Strategies Do You Use in Your Class ? ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Instructional strategies, according to Alberta Learning, are “techniques teachers use to help students become independent, strategic learners. These strategies become learning strategies when students independently select the appropriate ones and use them effectively to accomplish tasks or meet goals.” the strength of instructional strategies is that they determine how teachers can go about realizing their teaching objectives.

15 Summer Reading Ideas to Add to Your Bucket List - Brilliant or Insane

15 Summer Reading Ideas to Add to Your Bucket List - Brilliant or Insane | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Several weeks ago, I invited Brilliant or Insane readers to join me in brainstorming a bunch of tips that could entice kids to fall in love with reading this summer. At the time, quite a few teachers I support were in the midst of rethinking traditional summertime reading ideas and I was hoping to inspire them.

Here’s what we know: when readers have choice, access to texts they are eager to read, and time to do it, they thrive. When any of these factors are compromised, they disengage quickly. The conversation that unfolded in the comments section of my Bucket List for Summer Reading post validated this perspective.

Making Learning Visible: Doodling Helps Memories Stick - Mind/Shift

Making Learning Visible: Doodling Helps Memories Stick - Mind/Shift | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
While doodling has often been seen as frivolous at best and distracting at worst, the idea of sketchnoting has grounding in neuroscience research about how to improve memory. When ideas and related concepts can be encapsulated in an image, the brain remembers the information associated with that image. William Klemm, a professor of neuroscience at Texas A&M University, says the process is akin to a zip file.

“This is a way to get your working memory to carry more,” Klemm said at a Learning and the Brain conference in San Francisco.

50 Resources For Teaching With iPads - Te@chThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

The four traits of collaborative leadership - Virgin.com

The four traits of collaborative leadership - Virgin.com | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

So what does tomorrow’s leader look like? Here are four traits on the rise:

 

Part of the team. For a millennial workforce, working collaboratively is key – and that includes the chance to challenge and question the boss. Great leaders will spend time meeting their staff and really listening to what they have to say.Admitting mistakes. Authenticity rules, and that might mean having the courage and conviction to admit lack of knowledge or making the wrong call. Humility is critical, particularly in an age of transparency and public accountability.Multi-sector experience. Millennials are far more likely to move between jobs and sectors as they develop their career, and they’ll expect their leaders to have the same breadth of experience. The journey from shop floor to CEO isn’t as relevant for tomorrow’s workforce.Female characteristics. It’s still a shocking truth that 5% of Fortune 500 positions go to women, but the evidence shows that businesses benefit enormously from behavioural traits often considered to be female, such as emotional intelligence, diplomacy and complex social skills. Women make great leaders.

Good infographic. Collaborative leadership is a feature of the new world of work.

daniel truran's curator insight, July 7, 2015 4:55 AM

An additional trait I love to see in a collaborative leader is the belief in #HumanNobility : believing that each individual has unlimited potential and that I as a leader need to allow that potential to contribute to the team in a collaborative natural flowing way.

Some good items to purchase. I have to get some of the iPad microphones. Also uf you buy the USB Dock for your camera, you can use this to transfer photos and videos from one iPad to another directly. When you use the iPad charging cable to connect to the USB Dock it tricks the iPad into thinking the docked iPad is a camera. If you are using Explain Everything or video recording on teachers iPad to make lessons you can quickly transfer the training to other iPads in this manner.
