This may have potential if it's not just used as a way to try and keep kids attention so they don't mess around during a video.

12 Apps for Live-streaming Video

12 Apps for Live-streaming Video | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Live-streaming video is latest frontier of social media. Established social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) have their own apps, while first-movers in the space (e.g., Meerkat) are busily trying to differentiate themselves.

Live-stream content ranges from impromptu video blogging to produced efforts by industry veterans. For small businesses, live-streaming video may be a helpful, new way to engage an audience and establish a brand with little or no cost.

Here is a list of live-streaming video apps. There are fun, live-streaming apps to connect with and update followers, and there are live-video platforms with advanced production and lead-generation tools. Many of these apps are free.

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Helping students learn how to learn: That’s what most educators strive for, and that’s the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create.

Stretch student collaboration skills with Breakout EDU

Stretch student collaboration skills with Breakout EDU | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
There is a new platform for immersive learning games that’s taking classrooms across the world by storm. Based on the same principles as interactive Escape The Room digital games — which challenge players to use their surroundings to escape a prison-like scenario — Breakout EDU is a collaborative learning experience that enhances critical thinking and creativity while fostering a growth mindset in students.

There are two types of games available for teachers to run in their classrooms: the physical games (which are the main games) use the Breakout EDU box (or any box with a hasp that can be locked) with a set of locks, and the digital games which only need internet-connected devices.

Gameplay revolves around a Breakout EDU box that has been locked with multiple and different locks including directional locks, word locks, and number locks. After listening to a game scenario read by the teacher, students must work together to find and use clues to solve puzzles that reveal the various lock combinations before time expires (usually 45 minutes). Teachers can either purchase the Breakout EDU kit, which includes a plastic or wooden box and a set of locks, or the individual pieces of the kit can be ordered from Amazon directly. Either way, it takes about $100 to get started with the physical games; the digital games are free.

60 Seconds with Beth Hennessey

She is a former elementary school teacher, now researcher focused on motivation and creativity across cultures.

She has carried out numerous studies showing a powerful link between intrinsic task motivation and creativity of performance. This relation holds for everyone from preschoolers to seasoned research and development scientists. Yet most classrooms and workplaces are set up to kill intrinsic motivation ... with rewards, evaluations, competitions, and the like. At present, She is involved with a number of cross-cultural investigations of this phenomenon and is also collaborating with colleagues at MIT and in Singapore to develop a cutting-edge university curriculum to be used in the new IDC (International Design Center) at Singapore University of Technology and Design.

8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Isaac Asimov once stated that ‘self-education is…the only kind of education there is’. For Albert Einstein ‘ intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death’. The moral behind the quotes is that personal learning, self-directed education, informal learning, self-development…you name it, is a life-long process. It’s an endeavour that is internally motivated and driven by an insatiable desire to explore and understand the world. It is also a mindset, a thinking framework that positions individuals within their social realities.

Innovation Management Class

Innovation Management Class | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
I am teaching an MBA course on innovation management. It is actually a cross between competitive strategy, innovation management, and strategic management. It is all coming together fairly nicely. I am a little concerned about how it will actually work. Here is the in class plan so far… There is a textbook they are reading as background (but I don’t think I like the book). I have supplemented the NASA book, as well.  The infographic is clickable and links work for the first 2/3 of the in class activities and such.

Brushes 3

Brushes 3 | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Teachers can use Brushes 3 as a digital complement to their students' work with real-life brushes. One of the benefits of creating digitally is that you can easily achieve effects that are difficult to achieve when creating freehand with brushes. One exercise would be for students to compare and contrast techniques as they appear on canvas versus how they appear using the Brushes 3 app. Can they duplicate the experience? For beginners, teachers may want to talk about all the different brushes. What mood can different brushes evoke in your art? Don't expect your students' drawings to be magazine-cover worthy when they first start using Brushes 3. Its numerous features can create masterpieces or messes."

Google Classroom: Private Comment as Assignment - Teacher Tech

Google Classroom: Private Comment as Assignment - Teacher Tech | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
For assignments posted in Google Classroom, students are able to leave the teacher a private comment. This is one of my favorite features because it gives students an opportunity to ask a question privately. Students are more likely to ask questions through a digital platform than they are in person. The private comment feature, however, does not have to be restricted to students asking questions.
