tom jackson's insight:

Here's my add to this question . . . when I viewed the clip I found myself thinking,  hmmm isn't the real key to this knowing the students  prior level of knowledge?  Anything that is presented for students consideration comes with an embedded  learning challenge, or not.  The key is getting the challenge to interesting an achievable level (Flow, Csikszentmihalyi). Make it too difficult and it achieves learner frustration and disconnect, too easy and boredom and disconnect result.  Presentation of ANY learning material, not just video, needs to provide a spark of curiosity and be scaffolded as students navigate the ZPD (Vygotsky).

Dean Mantz's curator insight, June 24, 3:40 PM

In setting out to explore new Scoop.it resources, I came across Timo IImoki's page http://www.scoop.it/t/education-technology-theory-practice/ ; Timo has shared a wealth of resources and it was an easy decision to follow.

 

This article is one that has a personal flare for me. In using my YouTube channel to share screencasts and student projects, there are times I need to make adjustments to uploads. In addition, I like to  share video editing tools with my students.  Thus, this tool feature is one deserving of being integrated into projects.

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia

Resources for Using iPads in Grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 by Monica Burns - Edutopia | classroom tech for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.
