Unlocking video: 24/7 learning for iPod generation - EiC July 2012

Unlocking video: 24/7 learning for iPod generation - EiC July 2012 | iPad learning | Scoop.it

Truly a best in class demo of tech pedagogy.  David Read and Simon Lancaster give us just enough info to get out and do it.  Students are involved from the get-go in the learning.  I love how they refer to their screencasts as "vignettes".  Below is the money quote:

 

"...We conceived a leaner, more interactive format: the vignette. A vignette is essentially the edited highlights of a taught session, easily distinguishable from the lecture and has the potential to serve as a genuine open educational resource (OER). The core of the first year undergraduate degree program at UEA was reviewed for key concepts suitable for the vignette treatment. In close collaboration with the lecturers, a team of postgraduate editors selected 3-5 minute highlights from our assembled archive of recordings. These were annotated, augmented and enhanced using the full range of features within Camtasia, to produce bite-sized interactive multimedia learning aids. We reintroduced some of the interactivity lost in the recording by adding questions which helped to ensure the students watching did not slip into counterproductive passivity."

PicStory For iPad Is A Comprehensive Photo Management App With An Amazing UI | Redmond Pie | iPad learning | Scoop.it
"I would feel quite confident in going out on a limb and guessing that most owners of the iPad use the device in some form to scroll through albums of images and photographs.The Photos app on the iPad offers some support for organizing images, but for those who crave additional power over their life through pictures then it is possible that the PicStory iPad app is what you have been searching for. PicStory is an iPad-only app that aims to let users have powerful control over the elegant organization and management of photographs that are stored on the device. One of the great things about the app is that it can be used at varying levels of intensity and doesn’t necessarily require total control of every aspect to be a useful installation."

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom | iPad learning | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

 

The benefits of graphic organizers in education

 

- Teachers can use graphic organizers to engage visual learners and help them organize their thoughts


- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers


- They help students focus on connections rather than words 

 

- Finally , graphic organizers can help both teachers and students develop creative and critical thinking skills.
