Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015

Time Lapse iPad Workflow - July 2015 | Educational Technology Grab Bag | Scoop.it

I have blogged about using time-lapse before and it appears in our iPad Teacher Guide App (www.ipadteachers.com), notably to capture shadows moving across a playground. We use the time-lapse feature in I Can Animate a lot and even more recently where I have supported a number of schools who are capturing mini-beasts and even chicks hatching. The good thing about it is that it can be used with all year groups across a range of subjects but predominantly in Science.

 

The image above shows a typical workflow that we use combining I Can Animate, iMovie and Book Creator with Showbie used as the resource and assessment tool. The rule that we follow is that if the process takes less than a day (e.g Shadows across the playground, dough rising etc) then we use time-lapse. If it is longer than a day (e.g seeds growing) then we take the photos in I Can Animate manually because we want to use the iPads inbetween time.

So many uses for this and a clearly explained workflow!

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units | Educational Technology Grab Bag | Scoop.it
Here at Edtech at About.com, we've put together a list of potential technology-related questions that you may want to ask yourself when planning for instruction and designing curriculum. Many of these ideas are inspired by existing frameworks and philosophies focused on tech integration.

Via Beth Dichter
Kimberly House's insight:

This is an excellent article and very helpful for teachers looking for a way in  to using or enhancing what they do with technology. The list of ideas for each section are high quality. Great recommendations and ideas here.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 2015 8:35 AM

How can teachers best integrate technology into their lesson plans? This post looks at 10 questions we should consider asking ourselves, and provides suggestions of tools to consider using that will help us seamlessly integrate technology. Below are the first four questions.

1. How am I activating into my students' prior knowledge?

2. How am I presenting information to students in an engaging way?

3. How am I collecting, disseminating, and annotating student work?

4. What opportunities and resources am I giving my students for practice?

Integrating technology should become a component of our lesson design. As you review the additional questions you will find that not all apply to every lesson you teach. Think about your objectives and then select the question(s) most applicable.

As you look at the suggested tools in the post make sure that you try using the ones you choose. There is nothing more frustrating than to use a tool as a teacher, and you know it works...but when the student logs in the tool is blocked due to permissions. My lesson learned...I must test each and every tool, so that I know how to use it and to make sure students also have access.

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do

"This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do."

After you review the list you might consider how many of these skills are taught in your school, or consider which should be taught in school.
Five of her ideas are below. Click through to the post for the rest.

It is comprised of four media authoring approaches available on most smartphones, tablets, and laptops: making photos, taking screenshots, filming videos, and screencasting.

Each of these approaches allow teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience.
