Πειράματα Φυσικής με Απλά Υλικά - Science Experiments for Kids: Δωρεάν online μαθήματα από τα μεγαλύτερα πανεπιστήμια του κόσμου και την Google

Πειράματα Φυσικής με Απλά Υλικά - Science Experiments for Kids: Δωρεάν online μαθήματα από τα μεγαλύτερα πανεπιστήμια του κόσμου και την Google | Informatics Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Ο καθηγητής Σεμπάστιαν Θραν, επικεφαλής του κορυφαίου ερευνητικού εργαστηρίου της Google, είναι ό,τι πλησιέστερο σ’ έναν ροκ σταρ έχει η επιστήμη των ηλεκτρονικών υπολογιστών. Τώρα, χάρη σε μια εκπαιδευτική επανάσταση που βρίσκεται στην αρχή της, μπορεί να απευθύνεται σ’ ένα γιγαντιαίο κοινό νέων.

Πέρυσι διέθεσε δωρεάν στο Ιντερνετ το πτυχιακό μάθημα που δίδαξε στο Στάνφορντ, ένα πανεπιστήμιο που χρεώνει δίδακτρα 53.400 δολάρια τον χρόνο για ένα προπτυχιακό δίπλωμα.

Can All Classroom Lessons be Flipped?

Can All Classroom Lessons be Flipped? | Informatics Technology in Education | Scoop.it

In a Flipped Classroom, students view instructional videos at home. Classroom time is then used for cooperative learning or project-based learning where students move beyond the knowledge-level mastery to analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Rather than lecture during student contact time, teachers directly interact with individual students and student groups. As a proponent of cooperative- and project-based learning, I’m excited by the idea.

 

My concern is that proponents of Flipped Classrooms implement an “all or nothing” approach. A video from the Learning Place and one formal research piece, indicate that all lecture videos are viewed at home. A Flipped Classroom assumes that all students will view the videos at home. It also assumes that students have adequate listening skills.

Hi Thomas, you are right, but there are several good alternatives at more affordable prices. I am preparing a public list so that you can take direct advantage of it.
Thomas N. Burg's comment, September 9, 2012 2:08 PM
Hi Robin, I did some research since we are using it for a biz case. Knoodle might be interesting I think, and 9slides if they improve the editor … looking forward to your list :-)
Alex Haller's comment, January 10, 2013 7:28 AM
The problem with Knoodle is the poor navigation possibility. Not comparable with the SlidePresenter solution. But it really depends on what your goals are. SlidePresenter is an appropriate tool for corporations rather than for private use.

Traveloteacher: QuizSlides - a stylish interactive test creator

Traveloteacher: QuizSlides - a stylish interactive test creator | Informatics Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Last year my students did a webquest on English speaking countries. They showed their findings in presentations that they delivered to their peers in the classroom. I uploaded some of their presos to my Slideshare account (I still have more than a half to upload). One of their tasks was to create interactive quizzes in power point, which are absolutely meaningless on Slideshare.

However, last week I  came across QuizSlides, a great tool for ppts. QuizSlides enables you to keep interactive ppt multiple-choice quizzes interactive. QuizSlides is still in Beta and it's still free (The authors are planning to introduce premium features in the future, unfortunately.)
