Tracking student blogs using Google Spreadsheets and Wordpress | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"I’m currently teaching a first year module on Open Source Software, one of the requirements for which is students write their findings up as blog posts. For that reason I thought it might be useful to be able to keep track of how much my students have been writing. Given there are 80 students on the module, some automation here would also be useful!"

Free Technology for Teachers: Add Interactive Elements to Videos With TouchCast

Free Technology for Teachers: Add Interactive Elements to Videos With TouchCast | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

"At the top of my list these days is an app called TouchCast. 

How many times have you watched a video where they point out a great resource only to say that you’ll come back to it later and never do? Or, have you ever shared a great resource and wanted to provide a variety of links for someone to choose from to extend their knowledge? It’s happened to me lots of times, and either I forget the links, or get distracted with something else whilst switching from one app to the other. TouchCast solves these issues by creating an app that merges the power of videos and the web into one."

Anthony Beal's insight:

Potentially an excellent app for video projects. Pull in other videos, live polls, web pages, charts etc. to allow interaction with your video.

As the British Library posts its greatest literary treasures online, new research reveals that young people could be struggling to engage with the classics

As the British Library posts its greatest literary treasures online, new research reveals that young people could be struggling to engage with the classics | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
The British Library has posted over 1000 of its greatest literary treasures online in a new website, Discovering Literature – including the manuscripts of Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Austen, Dickens and Wilde, the largest collection of childhood writings of the Brontë sisters, and other unique artefacts which shed new light on their life and works
Anthony Beal's insight:

As the British Library posts its greatest literary treasures online, new research reveals that young people could be struggling to engage with the classics http://pressandpolicy.bl.uk/Press-Releases/As-the-British-Library-posts-its-greatest-literary-treasures-online-new-research-reveals-that-young-6a2.aspx

 

The research was carried out in schools and colleges

 

•           Overall, it is clear that there is a desire among English teachers to make their lessons more inspiring; almost three in five (57%) of teachers say that it is difficult to inspire students with the resources currently available. Additionally, they perceive students as struggling to identify with both classic authors of English literature (82%) and engage with older literary texts (83%).

•           English teachers perceive that students prefer digital media than books (83%), and that overall, students rely on online resources for research (93%). However, they also tend to say that current resources available to students are uninspiring (57%), and that they appreciate the value of first-hand original manuscripts and historical documents for students (82%).

•           Similarly, there is a desire among teachers to have more access to resources (90%), recognition that English literature needs to embrace digital technology (86%), and that access to digital resources needs to be improved (82%). English literature is extremely highly regarded by English teachers, and student access to it is considered to be of enormous importance.

This is amazing!

You've bit the bullet and started using Google Docs with your learners. They're happily sharing stuff with you, but there's so much stuff in your shared folder it's all becoming a mess. How do you organise everything so that only the relevant stuff is shared, it's all in a structure your can navigate, and keep track of everything?

Shame it's not free, but at $4 per student per year Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps might just save your sanity ;-)
