Multimedia Assessments: Tools for making dynamic audio-and video-based tests | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Video, audio, and images can help students gain deeper understanding of a question. Previously, struggling readers might have had assessment questions read aloud to him or her. Now, multimedia tools allow these students to take tests independently.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 11, 2015 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 lessons | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

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.

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, PhD's curator insight, May 4, 2015 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, 2015 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.

Kathy Lynch's curator insight, November 11, 2016 11:55 PM
Thanks Inez Bieler! The graphic at the end listing Evidence-based Principles of Effective teaching: 1. Care about helping your students learn, 2. understand but do not excuse, 3. be clear about learning goals, 4. surface knowledge + deep understanding, 5. release responsibility, 6. give good feedback, 7. have students learn from each other, 8 manage behavior, 9. evaluate your impact, 10. always be learning ways to increase your impact. makes a good bookmark reminder. Self-assessment regularly would likely improve teaching more than many hours of random PD.

This is interesting because it shows how far the concept of 'Curation' has come in the last 10 years. I don't remember much about it but I remember that in the early days of Blogger, perhaps even before Google bought it, they had a tool or bookmarklet or some little button that had certain curation abilities. My first blog was on Blogger and I remember using that tool.

Later, I maintained a Posterous blog for a couple of years...maybe more. I liked Posterous a lot and was very sad when they sold it (Posterous) to Yahoo and then about a year later those jerks at Yahoo closed it down. I thought Posterous was a very nice blog with just the right amount of features to get the job done without getting too technical.
