The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog | Improving Vocabulary with Technology | Scoop.it
"I was recently inspired by Sean Junkins’ (@sjunkins) periodic table of iPad Apps. I thought it was a really useful too – being able to map Apps to activities – I thought it a really helpful too. With that in mind, I wanted to be able to use it as a poster myself but whilst I thought it was great I didn’t however quite agree with some of the App choices. I wanted different categories too that related more to the use I thought would be useful in UK schools, hence I created my own version from scratch in Photoshop which I share below."

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought

Technology Makes Reading Better. Here's Exactly How. - Te@chThought | Improving Vocabulary with Technology | Scoop.it
"Reading is just the communication of ideas through alphanumeric symbols. I’m not sure what this represents such hallowed ground for teachers, but it does. Personally I’d be more concerned with reading habits, reasons for reading, the quality of reading materials, etc. Symbols change, forms change, media change. See the gif animations that demonstrate how a student feels when “bae won’t respond to them.” This is your audience, and these are the symbols they gravitate towards. In the apps-for-close-reading post, I said that this “interaction” between reader and text during close reading “doesn’t require technology, but can be changed by it.” So it made sense, I thought, to guess at some ways this happens. Or should be happening, anyway. With more personalization, more access, and more connectivity, we should be creating a generation of close-readers that can’t get enough. So if we’re not, the question is, why isn’t that happening? The pieces are there."

"Choice boards are powerful tools for providing students with both choice and direction in their work. The idea, creatively shown below from teacher/blogger Monica Evon in the form of a menu, allows teachers to guide students towards certain forms of academic practice, or demonstration of specific standards. If, for example, you want students to show they understand how to calculate the area of a circle from real-life applications, you can create 8 different ways for them to show it."

How to use QR cubes to impress your students and parents

How to use QR cubes to impress your students and parents | Improving Vocabulary with Technology | Scoop.it
“ Parent teacher interviews can be one of the most stressful nights of the year. Especially if you have never done one before. Usually, you only have about ten minutes to impress upon these people that you are both competent in your role, and you also genuinely care as much for their children as mum and dad do. Sometimes this might be the only ten minutes you get for the year together. Today we are going to look at a surefire winner that will ensure your meeting finishes on a high no matter what. We are going to create some QR Cubes for you to take home to parents on the night that will be of use to them all year long. The idea is that they take their cube home scan the codes with their phone at home and gain insights into what has happened in the classroom or find out strategies for improving future learning opportunities at home. So, Let's go through the process. You might want to set aside half an hour to do this for your entire class. Firstly you will need to find 6 ( minimum amount for one dice- but make as many dice as you wish. ) items that you wish to share on your cube. Remember everything you direct them to needs to be based on the internet for this to work. Examples of this might be... 1: A video link to your classes input into this years school concert. Youtube or private video hosting will work. 2: A link to your class blog outlining what has been happening in the classroom. 3: A link to video you have made about expectations for parents in your class. ie: - How much should your child be reading etc. 4: A link to some math's or literacy games you have approved for use in your class that can be played on phones or computers. 5: A link to your email or twitter account so that parents can ask you questions at any time. 6: A link to free posters you can put up around the house to help out with tables or spelling etc. Then you need to convert your links into QR codes. This will take no more than 5 minutes to do all 6. Simply watch my instructional video below on how to do this. So then you simply need to copy and paste your QR codes onto a 3D dice template which can be found here. Print up a class set. Get your students to make them at school and be sure to give one out to parents at the meeting. It will certainly show them something they have never seen in their own experience of school, and makes a great first impression. If parents need a little info about QR codes you can direct them here. Finally. You don't have to make dice you can take this in any direction you want. Id love to hear your thoughts and ideas. ”

The power of digital student portfolios

With the spreading use of computers and mobile technology in schools, going digital with student portfolios has become more popular.

Sra. Spanglish: Three Apps, Three Types of Movie Projects | Improving Vocabulary with Technology | Scoop.it
"A quality five-minute movie project will suck weeks away from your class time, if done right. Then again, with the right technology--a coupla iPads, apps, and Web 2.0 accounts for example--a decent 30-second video can be churned out in a class period often with just the technology half your kids carry in their pockets. There are three basic categories of movie project: basic non-edited,edited nonscripted, and scripted edited. that more or less align with different levels of assessment: practice, formative, and summative. The products of these project types are also suited to different audiences: self, teacher/peers, public. Since Christmas came in July, and I now have my very own set of 10 class iPads, I've selected an iPad app to focus on for each movie making level."
