Annotate the Web with Popcorn Maker | screencast tutorial - The Digital Shift | EFL in the GCC | Scoop.it

"Popcorn Maker, a tool for enhancing and remixing Web video from Mozilla, holds a lot of potential for educators, according to Linda W. Braun. The library consultant and educator, who created an earlier tutorial on make-your-own infographics, takes the free, browser-based application for a spin in the following screencast."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 14, 2013 9:15 PM

If you have wanted to learn how to use Popcorn Maker check out this video tutorial. Learn how to use the drag and drop, insert text, images, Google maps and more. Final projects may be shared (that does require that you create a log-in) and embedded in web pages. Braun's final comment is "“For school and public librarians, teachers, and parents who work with kids and teens, there are a lot of possibilities."

Deep Learning vs. Surface Learning: Getting Students to Understand the Difference | Faculty Focus

Deep Learning vs. Surface Learning: Getting Students to Understand the Difference | Faculty Focus | EFL in the GCC | Scoop.it
Sometimes our understanding of deep learning isn’t all that deep. Typically, it’s defined by what it is not. It’s not memorizing only to forget and it’s not reciting or regurgitating what really isn’t understood and can’t be applied.

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | EFL in the GCC | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’
