Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Great Tools for Telling Stories With Pictures - A PDF Handout

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Great Tools for Telling Stories With Pictures - A PDF Handout | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it
Composing a story from scratch comes naturally to some people. For the rest of us creating a story from scratch can be a struggle. Over the years I’ve found that using pictures helps a lot of students get started on crafting stories. In some cases I’ve had students create collages to represent elements of a story. In other cases I’ve had them choose five pictures and write two hundred words about each. Being asked to write two hundred words about five pictures feels a lot less daunting than being asked to write one thousand words in one shot.

Another great way to learn during summer:  get a few teachers together and chose a book to read.  Create a blog to share insights.  This could help reinforce technology skills and allow more to participate as they sit at the pool or take care of children.  This might be something that could continue into the school year.

Some interesting points made here. I agree with some of the points made for example setting an example for our students on the correct copyright procedure. Not sure though if the gain would be worth the pain of limiting factors such as slow internet and availability.

David Prince's curator insight, May 27, 12:33 AM

After downloading a couple of clips over time then reading the article I can see how important it is to be mindful of copyright on you tube. As a pre-service teacher it has become clearer that one must demonstrate clear guidelines on downloading information to show students that ethical behaviour is required within the ICT community.

"As teachers, when we lecture, we have the best of intentions. We have a concept we want the class to understand, so we stand and explain it to them. We give them background. Offer details. Anticipate and pre-empt common misconceptions. Illuminate the more entertaining bits. Emphasize the nuance."

26 Effective Ways to Use Twitter for Teachers & Educators Infographic | Teaching and Learning Resources for Faculty | Scoop.it

If you haven’t yet adopted Twitter as one of your go-to places for professional development and/or sharing pertinent info with coworkers, students and parents, you really don’t know what you’re missing! And it’s not just the latest celebrity drama!

 

Seriously, despite the 140 character minimum, tweets—articles, thoughts, opinions, inspiration, quotes, images and more—allow like-minded individuals (you and me) to connect, collaborate, discuss, exchange and even debate all sorts of ideas with virtual colleagues. Whether it’s best practices, instructional strategies, the latest and greatest tech tools or an innovative project, invaluable information is just a hastag away!

 

Check out the infographic below for an A-Z list of ways educators can utilize one of the most popular social media platforms on the edtech scene to make meaningful connections with others.
