How to Create a Powerpoint Presentation that Won't Put People to Sleep | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Before a presentation your nerves become fired up and your heart starts to pound. While the audience may be sizing you up, they are only hoping for an engaging presentation. They want you to succeed and quite frankly they need you to succeed. The infographic provided by Udemy walks us through the three critical points to creating a great presentation.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 11, 6:25 AM

Are you looking for resources that provide "copyright friendly" images, audio and video for your learners? This post, by Richard Byrne, provides six resources. Each one provides access to materials that are in the public domain.

* The Moving Image Archive. This is part of the Internet Archive and includes over 1.7 million clips.

* The Public Domain Review is a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation and provides access to images, books, films, audio recording and essays.

* The Free Music Archive (FMA) provides access to free music. This collection is curated and provides a range of genres.

* Sound Gator provides free sound effects. Do you need the sound of a horn honking, or whipped cream coming out of a can?  This is a great place to go.

* Pixabay and the Morgue File are both great places to search for images. The Morgue File is a collection of photos, and Pixabay provides high-resolution images in the public domain.

Byrne provides additional details on each of these six resources in the post. Click through to learn more.

Augmented reality is an enhanced media experience in an environment for a user. There are multiple types of experiences. These computer generated environments let you hear music or sounds, watch videos, move and scale a 3D model, or place you in a scene that can be anywhere. All of these possibilities are interactive and require the user to trigger the possible experience.

Maximillian Danskin's curator insight, May 4, 12:57 PM

this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.   

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 4, 11:10 PM

Curriculum comes from currere which has to do with repeatedly running the course and autobiography implying complex conversations. These happen in School and outside.

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning

Why Aesthetics Matter to Learning | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
One obvious way to influence affect is through visual aesthetics, or the appreciation of an appealing design. Thus, the importance of visual design in learning is gaining in stature and will become increasingly important in years to come.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 4, 10:23 AM

Much of this applies to online learning, but aesthetics matter in a brick-and-mortar environment, too. Think about the classroom to which you respond, "Oh! This is nice!" as opposed to the classroom that seems to be losing its battle with clutter. Imagine the impact a confused environment has on a student. Great to have stuff on the wall, but after a while it can become just background and no longer have any meaning. Teachers already work hard to create a valuable and purposeful learning space, so asking them to have a plan for managing the resources and other stuff in the classroom might seem like too much. Except the really good ones are already doing it.

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units

10 Questions to Ask When Planning Tech Infused Units | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 24, 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.

Kimberly House's curator insight, April 25, 8:16 AM

Being an effective teacher contributes to having a productive classroom.  The ten tips of being an effective teacher are valuable, yet simple.  The top three that I find important are: "Understand students, but don't excuse their behavior," "Model the tasks and behaviors that you want students to learn," and "Continue learning new ways to be an effective teacher."  These principles are appropriate for teachers at any level.  It is a valuable article to reflect on.

"This post is promoted by Noet, makers of Encyclopedia Britannica Noet Edition and the free research app for the classics, who asked us to talk about the credibility of information research in a digital world. We thought, then, that it might make sense to focus on digital tools and resources that highlight the idea of credibility."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 5, 11:28 PM

Terry Heick makes it clear that this is a sponsored post and recommends 13 lessons and 13 tools that we may want to share with learners (and teachers) to help them gain a better understanding as to why research and credibility are important digital concepts. Below are several of the "lessons" that we need to understand.

* Not all sources are created equal.

* You can combine digital search with academic content.

* Question everything - even if you like the source.

* Want credibility? Cite your sources.

In addition to the 13 lessons there are also thirteen tools that are suggested, such as:

* EasyBib

* Summon (an alternative to Google Scholar)

* Zotero - a website that is free and allows you to "collect, organize, cite and share your research choices."

There is much more information in this post so take the time to click through...and think how nice it would be if our learners understood and embraced the 13 lessons.

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 22, 4:46 PM

Check out this new search engine called Wonder. Wonder is a 'human-centric' search engine. People who are knowledgeable in the field recommend resources. In fact, if you have a special area you need researched you may enter a 'ticket' explaining what you are looking for and researchers will "email you back high quality resources ASAP."

The search engine is free to use, but you must create a log-in (three choices available).

Once you enter your search terms items will appear with a small visual and some text. You may choose to save any item (and like or share an item). You may also request additional information (see note above) and the list of contributors is viewable allowing you to filter results by reviewer.

There are so many websites that students find that are not the best. This search engine would be great for students still learning how to search, or as a way to potentially see if the sites they find are also listed by Wonder. Take some time to explore and consider sharing this with students (I would suggest high school, and possibly middle school).

We really should ask whether the current education system addresses the needs of the future, even the present. Is this education model proven, and thus ideal? or Should we revisit what we do? how we do it? What we teach? Who we teach it to? and even When we teach it?
