13 Ways To Use iMovie In The Classroom

13 Ways To Use iMovie In The Classroom | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

Is there an app for that? Well, chances are there are dozens of apps for anything you want to do, but sometimes you find one app that is robust enough to have multiples uses for you and your students. For me, iMovie is that app. Use it for everything from slow motion videography to documentation, to presentations and everything in-between.

Why I abandoned my AppleTV for Airserver

Why I abandoned my AppleTV for Airserver | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

In summary, I traded a $100 piece of hardware for a $12 bit of software that allows streaming of iPad screens to my smartboard in a format large enough to read from the back of the classroom.

__________________

We've been using Airserver for a couple of weeks now and find it very reliable. The thing I like is that you can have multiple devices on the screen at the same time (e.g. an iPhone AND iPad). Plus there is a PC version as well.

A Teacher's Guide to Fixing No Child Left Behind

Test obsession, narrow curricula, blaming teachers--a few problems resulting from the No Child Left Behind law that are unpacked in this animated video. The video details some of the problems created by NCLB and describes President Barack Obama's proposal to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and solve them. Written by a teacher at the U.S. Department of Education, the animated video offers a vision that strengthens teaching, narrows achievement gaps, raises standards, and prepares all students for colleges and careers in a global economy. It includes video clips of Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.

Being a 21st Century educator is creating a learning environment that is social, collaborative and project based. Teachers, nor anyone else for that matter, will ever be able to keep up with all new technologies. The trick is to focus on digital technologies that facilitate student collaboration.

Writing Apps – Supports for Students with LD 

Writing Apps – Supports for Students with LD  | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

Writing is considered one of the most difficult literacy tasks. Many students with learning disabilities struggle with the process of writing as well as the mechanical componets of the writing task. Technology can provide support to the mechanical demands of the writing process and is often a welcome tool to students. When asked about AT supports for writing there are many, however some of the standard AT tools of mechanical writing are voice recognition, use of text to speech, word prediction and adaptive or customized writing environments. Although there are others (especially those with text to speech) here are some apps that show good reviews and provide basic features of the standard AT tools for writing. At the present, phonetic word prediction does not appear to be present in writing apps (may be found in more advanced text-based AAC apps such as Predictably).

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core

UDL Guides Personalizing Learning to Meet the Common Core | ICT Tea | Scoop.it

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is used to design curriculum, lessons and instruction based on the diversity of the learners in their classroom.

 

How can UDL guide personalize learning to meet the Common Core?

 

When a teacher understands his/her learners through the UDL lens, he/she creates a flexible learning environment and provides opportunities for learner voice and choice. When lessons are designed using the UDL model, the lesson includes goals, methods, materials, tools, and assessments to reach and support the maximum amount of learners in the classroom. Learners can use this model to help them understand how they learn best and what learning path they can take to become an independent expert learner, leveraging their natural abilities in the process. This process helps the learner create their personal learning profile that is understood by both teacher and learner.

The importance of this strategy is that both the teacher and the learner understand who the learner is and how they learn best. The learner and the teacher uses the UDL lens to personalize learning. So what does that look like? An example of an 8th Grade unit on the Civil War serves as an example along with two students who can meet a number of CCSS when they choose and use the tools to support their learning. Explore our new website, Personalize Learning (www.personalizelearning.com), to learn more about the research, models and educators who are personalizing learning.
