Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Skype is a great tool to use in learning as it provides real time engagement with experts. This a great article with ideas about thinking outside of the box when integrating Skype. 

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 8:04 PM

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.

How do failures improve us? This post explores 8 ways that failures teach us lessons, including building empathy, humility, flexibility and creativity. Engineers understand that failure is a part of the learning process, yet in school we tend to look at failure as a negative component of learning. Is it possible for us to look at our practice and provide opportunities for our students to learn from their failures?

How to Fuel the Innovation Engine in Learning

How to Fuel the Innovation Engine in Learning | iEduc | Scoop.it

This post begins:

"Can creativity be taught? If innovation is truly the key to this country’s success, then it’s time to think strategically about engendering creativity into our education system."

It reviews a new book, 'Ingenius: A Crash Course in Creativity.' The author, Tina Seelig, discusses her 'celebrated Innovation Engine' which consists of 'three internal human factors and three external influences.

The three interal human factors are:

* Knowledge which provides fuel for your imagination

* Imagination which is the catalyst for transforming knowledge into ideas

* Attitude - the spark that set the Innovation Engine in motion

For information on the three external influences as well as using failure to learn click through to the article.

If you have not checked out Scratch, a free programming language from the MIT Media Lab, take the time to listen to this talk by the creator, and then check out the program at the Scratch site, http://scratch.mit.edu/. You may download the program, join an educator's community, check out projects, watch tutorials and much more. One question that is being discussed more and more is if we should teach students programming. We are also told we need to have our students be creators of materials. Scratch may be a program that will help us meet both these goals.

MIT's Scratch is a great program for high school students to learn.

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners | iEduc | Scoop.it

"The student’s eyes drift to the classroom window and the teacher’s voice fades from consciousness.

The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem. Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience makes clear that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning."


Via Beth Dichter
NikolaosKourakos's insight:

If you have wondered if daydreaming makes students better learners then this article will provide 15 reasons as well as many resources. A few of the reasons listed are (all are quotes):

* Daydreaming is the mind's natural state

* Daydreaming helps with critical thinking and problem solving

* Daydreaming...greatly increases the mind’s ability to smoothly shift in the face of unanticipated events and situations.

Και οι 15 λόγοι συνοψίζονται στο απόσπασμα από την Αναφορά στον Γκρέκο του Νίκου Καζαντζάκη:

 

Μια μέρα, ήταν άνοιξη, χαρά Θεού, τα παράθυρα ήταν ανοιχτά κι έμπαινε η μυρωδιά από μια ανθισμένη μανταρινιά στο αντικρινό σπίτι∙ το μυαλό μας είχε γίνει κι αυτό ανθισμένη μανταρινιά και δεν μπορούσαμε πια ν' ακούμε για οξείες και περισπωμένες. Κι ίσια ίσια ένα πουλί είχε καθίσει στο πλατάνι της αυλής του σκολειού και κελαηδούσε. Τότε πια ένας μαθητής, χλωμός, κοκκινομάλης, που 'χε έρθει εφέτο από το χωριό, Νικολιό τον έλεγαν, δεν βάσταξε, σήκωσε το δάχτυλο:

- Σώπα, δάσκαλε, φώναξε∙ σώπα, δάσκαλε, ν' ακούσουμε το πουλί!..."

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths

Top 8 Digital Storytelling Apps to Help Understand Student Strengths | iEduc | Scoop.it

Here are the "Top 8 Apps" for digital storytelling apps picked by Inov8. They point out that these apps encourage creativity, provide support and remediation for students with special needs, and can be used in many different classroom settings. "They are motivating, engaging and will encourage learners to demonstrate their strengths."

 

"For students with special needs, the creativity of digital storytelling apps has allowed us, as educators, the opportunity to observe and understand the strengths of our students. New apps are primarily hands-on and highly visual, and provide an opportunity for those learners who struggle with traditional instructional methods to take advantage of their abilities and strengths. Professionals in special education want to use apps in many different contexts, integrated into global curricula, across disciplines, as well as be able to insert their own content. Ultimately we want to customize, individualize and personalize the use of these digital storytelling apps for our students."
