We do not agree with the "100 great apps" approach because you will never make it to #17 let alone #100. Here are a list of 5 FREE tools we recommend to use this upcoming school year to increase student engagement, deeper level thinking, teacher productivity, and make parent communication flawless! "

Thanks for this scoop! The TeachThought site has helpful links related to students bringing their own devices (BYOD). I think it's important to find ways to resolve problems around BYOD because having a device you are comfortable using adds value.

Interactive video has punching power, especially for computer based training, flipped classrooms, and with a little creativity almost any video enhanced lesson can get even better.

The future is not about a single device or set of devices. According to this author,


"The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Teaching and learning is going to be social. Schoolsof the future could have a traditional cohort of students, as well as online only students who live across the country or even the world. Things are already starting to move this way with the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs)."

Sock Puppets App - The Creative Language Classroom

Sock Puppets App - The Creative Language Classroom | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

"

My husband Chris is the shyest person on Earth. Seriously! We’ve had some “thrilling” dinner conversations about his school. He basically only liked the parts where he worked alone. French class… he’d rather take a 0 than speak in front of a class. When I lesson plan, I try to think about the shy student. How can I get them talking comfortably? Skits? That’s really pushing it. Record them speaking on camera? Better, but still unnerving. Sock puppets? YES!!

 

This is a free iPad app where the students record their voice to moving sock puppets. They pick how many puppets, the background, the props, and then they distort their voice. If they choose two puppets, they can have a conversation with each other. They are so excited to show off their creations.   I am going to use them tomorrow as an interpretive listening activity."

The lit review is note worthy however there is more evidence from k-12 than higher ed, and the one case study from higher ed does not indicate positive results, however there are some take home messages consistent with other literature.

 

See white paper

"...the potential of Flipped Learning lies not in the videos but in how delivering direct  instruction in a different environmnet opens up time and space inside the classroom to engage in higher leverage instructional practices and individualize learning. Teachers need to be thoughtful about how to  maximize the opportunity for students to become active learners who are empowered to take charge of their own learning. Even critics acknowledge that the changeover to the Flipped Learning model encourages teachers to re-evaluate their teaching (e.g., Stumpenhorst, 2012)."

 

"Indeed, teaching successfully in a flipped classroom is even more demanding than is traditional teaching. So, if Flipped Learning is to succeed, teachers will need to be trained and supported in how to engage students more deeply in content."

Diane Goodman's curator insight, July 21, 2013 11:05 PM

The flipside of the flipped classroom is that it challenges teachers to reconsider what is done and how time is spent in the classroom - that is, what students do to learn and what teachers do to facilitate and support learning, in the space left by the removal of 'teacher-talk'. For some, this is a paradigm shift that requires letting go of the attachment to content, in favour of a focus on the learning process ...

Abstract

Research examined 12 randomly selected blogs from a population of 38 teacher-created, teaching-centered blogs to determine whether they were useful reflective devices for practicing middle school teachers. The amount and depth of reflective practice, as measured by a researcher-created rubric, was examined as well. Results indicated that all participants engaged in some level of reflective writing. However, the depth and level of reflection varied within and among the blogs. The results reported here are useful for framing future research on the efficacy of middle school teacher blogs.
