Upcoming: YouTube Video Player Introduces Storyboards and Timeline Thumbnailing

Amit Agarwal has a scoop on the next upcoming version of the YouTube video player. He writes:

 

"The next version of YouTube video player will have one very useful feature – you can hover your mouse to any point in the video, without actually moving the playhead, and the YouTube player will show you an image thumbnail of the video frame at the position.

 

Thus you can easily get a visual gist of the whole video while the clip is still buffering.

 

I recorded a screencast video and that should give you a better idea of this new feature."

Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature

Free Technology for Teachers: Flubaroo Compared to the New Google Forms Auto-grading Feature | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
On Monday Google Forms received an update that allows you to create automatically graded multiple choice and true/false quizzes. To do this just go into your Form's settings menu and select "quizzes." You can then specify point values for each multiple choice question in your Form. In that same menu you can enter answer explanations. The quizzes setting also gives you the option of letting students see their scores immediately after completing a quiz. The quizzes setting is convenient, but it is not as feature-laden as the Google Sheets Add-on called Flubaroo.

Learning to Measure Media Literacy Outcomes | Educator Innovator

Learning to Measure Media Literacy Outcomes | Educator Innovator | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Our Media Literacy Competency Assessment Rubric uses the students’ final projects as indicators for levels of competency of a variety of skills, and measures how well students can put their new media literacy skills into practice. Every program track has a set of central skills-based competencies that fall under the LAMP’s broader intended outcomes, and the rubric can be adapted to measure these competencies according to the program. In designing the rubric, we had to clarify these outcomes and came to the determination that activism is key to the LAMP learning experience. So instead of trying to measure attitudes, our assessment tool evaluates the active work created by the students, and how it enables the roles they play in a participatory digital culture. For many students, the very act of producing their own work and challenging the media is a form of activism, and our rubric takes this into account as a key goal. We seek to uplift their voices so they feel comfortable challenging the media, and the projects they create are where these newly learned media literacy concepts and active media-making skills can be seen. The final projects produced by students show us how well they understand the concepts being taught, but also if students feel empowered enough to make their own active media messages.

Being a Young Black Male Teacher — The Synapse — Medium

Being a Young Black Male Teacher — The Synapse — Medium | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
It’s hard enough being a new teacher. You have to learn the craft, learn the kids, and learn how to juggle both while still following the curriculum and doing your job well. Kudos to every young black male teacher out there. You already know most of them didn’t give us a chance as students, so what are the stats on them treating us equally as peers? Shoot, maybe I am the hammer and all these experiences are just me nailing nails down for no reason. Maybe every last teacher had a comment about the shoes I was wearing to work just because they thought they looked that good. Maybe they initially thought I was the gym teacher because of my physique. Nevertheless, that is what it is like to be a young black male teacher.
Jim Lerman's insight:

Brief piece on an important topic. Definitely worth reading.
