Good ways to help students look at primary sources.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, April 30, 1:37 AM

Researching gives the need to identify, organise and rate primary sources. Here are some great graphic organisers that allow students (or teachers) to do just that.

On peut écrire directement sur une page de notre power-point et faire des enregistrements audios et vidéos.  On peut aussi ajouter un quiz et partager le document pour que les gens puissent l'ouvrir avec un navigateur internet.

10 tasks every iPad classroom should be able to do - history tech

10 tasks every iPad classroom should be able to do - history tech | Technology for the classroom | Scoop.it

"The Educational and Mobile Learning site highlighted a great step by step iPad task tutorial by the folks over at iSupport. They outline five tasks http://bit.ly/1i54yMl that “every modern teacher” should be able to do and use in their classrooms.

 

It’s a great list:

 

A PDFA presentationAn interactive bookA podcastA movie

 

I really like how they put together an easy way to see how using iPad tools can lead kids through low level to high levels of thinking and doing.

 

But the list isn’t comprehensive. And it might start past the point where some teachers are right now.

 

So I’ve added five extra iPad basic skills that I think every teacher using iPads needs to have:"

[Infografía] 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher

[Infografía] 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher | Technology for the classroom | Scoop.it

We’ve mused in the past on the kinds of things teachers might be expected to do with technology in the classroom, what they should be able to do with an iPad (assuming they have iPads),

We’ve talked about the elements of a digital classroom, ways to share large files, and store and share files on the iPad as well.

The following infographic from dailygenius.com makes sense, then, in that context of being able to sketch out what might be required of a digitally-savvy and competent teacher. (You can give dailygenius a follow on twitter as well.)

Transmedia and Education: How transmedia is changing the way we learn

Transmedia and Education: How transmedia is changing the way we learn | Technology for the classroom | Scoop.it

Prominent examples of transmedia for young adults include the related book and app Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral (Penguin, 2012), a mystery about star-crossed teenage lovers told primarily through images—letters, photographs, and texts—which readers can manipulate in the app version. For those who seek it, Chopsticks videos and music clips are available on YouTube. Another example is Andrea J. Buchanan’s Gift (Open Road Integrated Media, 2012), a multimedia young adult novel about Danielle, a high school sophomore with a secret power. It has features such as a soundtrack, illustrations, a companion Minecraft “build-your-own-world” application, and Danielle’s journal.
