5 Flipped Classroom Issues (And Solutions) For Teachers - Edudemic

5 Flipped Classroom Issues (And Solutions) For Teachers - Edudemic | Education Library and More | Scoop.it

by Beth Holland

 

"Have you been thinking about flipping your classroom this fall? Flipping can let you make the most of face-to-face time with your students. Rather than taking class time to introduce content and using homework to review concepts, flip the process so that students gain basic knowledge at home and then create, collaborate, and make connections in school.

 

"Creating video used to be out of reach for most teachers. It was expensive and required skills that could take years to master. Fortunately, it is easier and faster than ever to create videos for your students, especially with iPad. It also plays a big part in flipping your class, as it provides students with multimodal access to content and the ability to progress at their own pace. By giving students the opportunity to view and playback lessons via video, you free up class time for more cognitively difficult tasks. At EdTechTeacher, we have worked with many educators on flipping their classes and have noticed some common issues that often thwart their initial forays."

How To Create A Screensaver From A PowerPoint Presentation

How To Create A Screensaver From A PowerPoint Presentation | Education Library and More | Scoop.it

Whatever the reason may be, you can easily convert your PowerPoint presentation slides into a screensaver. There are many third-party applications that offer conversion and some even charge some money for it. However, if you follow the instructions in this post, you won’t have to pay or download any application or program. You can easily set a slide or two—or even your whole presentation—into a screensaver that you can always see on your desktop.

8 Things You Probably Didn’t Realize Siri Could Do - MakeUseOf.com | Education Library and More | Scoop.it
Siri has become one of the iPhone’s defining features, but for many people, it’s not always the most useful. While some of this is due to the limitations of voice recognition, the oddity of using voice to command a device is also partly to blame.

"Sat next to my Stepson while he does his homework which happens to be writing a story, "How can we describe the monster?" I say. "Big," he replies. "Ok, but I can think of some better words to use...what about gigantic, enormous, colossal???" I ask. "Big is fine," he answers."
