Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

The Best Language Learning Apps For 2015 - Te@chThought

The Best Language Learning Apps For 2015 - Te@chThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

 - TeachThoughtSkills like vocabulary and foreign language speaking are right in the sweet spot of what unattended and automated–often considered the very worst kind–can do.

But it needn’t be that way. Handing a student a tablet as they practice basic skills with an app–especially one with adaptive design–is a perfectly legitimate use of edtech as far as we’re concerned, and language learning is very much a part of that.

So with that in mind are ten of the best language learning apps for 2015, updated to include those with social dynamics, like HelloTalk, recent entries like Rosetta Stone, and stalwart Duolingo. We’ve also made an effort to include multiple languages, including Mandarin, French, Spanish, and English.

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com

Why 3D Printing Needs to Take Off in Schools Around the World - 3DPrint.com | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

."Where 3D printing has yet to really make a huge impact, but provides an ample amount of opportunity, is within educational institutions. These range from elementary schools to high schools, universities, and maker spaces around the globe. One reason that 3D printing has been quite slow in making its impact in these institutions is simply because of the lack of knowledge of the technology by the decision makers in charge.

Because the technology is so relatively new, the greatest impact may come via the introduction of 3D printing into public and private grade schools. The younger a person is, the easier it usually is to introduce new ideas and methodologies. This is why young children are so quick to learn new languages, when compared to their older adult counterparts. This is what makes elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools the perfect place to begin really introducing a curriculum based around 3D printing.

Just about every subject within a school curriculum could benefit from 3D printing technology. We will outline a few of these below:"

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

My story colleague Paul Smith, who wrote the fab book "Lead With A Story" for leaders, is coming out with his new book "Parenting With A Story" Nov. 12th. You can read more about it here: http://amzn.to/1ti7sBu 


In this post Smith tackles the challenge of creating a 6-word story ala Ernest Hemingway. When you are trying to write a story -- I mean a real story -- for social media (i.e. 140 characters), mastering this skill is critical. And darn hard.


You can see how we all fumble with this in the post Paul writes, and the examples folks share. Lots of comments and opinions abound -- but no story.


Here's my attempt at a 6-word story: Played golf. Boss won. Kept job.


Here it is as a 127 character Twitter post: From my window in Palm Springs, golfers whack the balls. Who will win as they swagger through the greens? Ahh, the boss prevails again and jobs are kept.


Read what others did and submit your own. Have fun with this. And remember, constraints are essential to creativity!

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite

How to Use Scratch for Digital Storytelling - graphite | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Digital storytelling involves combining digital media (images, voice narration, music, text, or motion) to tell a story. Over the past few years, digital storytelling has become an increasingly popular and effective way for students to meet a range of learning goals in the classroom. Scratch, a programming project from the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, might be an unexpected tool for digital storytelling. But using Scratch to tell a story is a “twofer”: Students practice important ELA skills and at the same time use computational thinking."
