Using Showbie as a collaboration tool

Using Showbie as a collaboration tool | IT | Scoop.it

I have been using Showbie for quite a while, both at my school and with the schools I support. It has certainly solved the problem of how students can quickly send their work to the teacher and the teacher share resources with the pupils. We have used it a lot and we like how it can be accessed online on devices other than the iPad. It also works well for assessment and archiving work. The class codes can be given to the headteacher so he/she can see all pupil portfolios, making it good to show parents and inspectors.

Each pupil has their own login in normal use. However, some of what we do at school is collaborative. For example, a group of Year 6 pupils can each be working on a short video which could then be stitched together in iMovie etc. It is not possible to for one pupil to send a file to another using Showbie so we have created group logins. This means that a group of pupils would all log in using the same username and password. Each student can then submit a file to an assignment and the other pupils see and download that file onto their iPads. Importantly the teacher can also see whole groups work and each part of it.

There are many collaborative tools on the iPad but as many schools are using Showbie then this may create another possibility.

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | IT | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | IT | Scoop.it

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

Using iPad Stop Animation within Primary Education

Using iPad Stop Animation within Primary Education | IT | Scoop.it

I have mentioned in previous blog posts that my favourite education app is the Camera app. Any app that then talks to the camera app makes it a more powerful and widely used app. One of my favourite examples of this is I Can Animate. It allows pupils or teachers to take a series of photos and then the app plays the photos as a video. iOS 8 also includes a simple time-lapse camera inside the default camera.

 

Firstly this can be used to inspire creativity as pupils can make inanimate objects move, such as Lego and plasticine by making subtle movements for each photo. What's nice about this app is it keeps an 'Onion skin' image each time so pupils can see where the previous photo was when lining the camera up.

 

At school we have used I Can Animate more for science than any other subject as we are able to capture processes. Here are a few ideas:


1. Take a photo each day of a seed growing and then watch the seed grow as a video. Videos of seeds growing in different conditions can be played side by side using the Split screen feature in iMovie app.

2. Take a photo every 5 minutes of different materials absorbing water. I Can Animate also includes a time lapse feature where it will automatically take photos at intervals predetermined by the user.
3. Using the the time lapse feature, capture a shadow moving across the playground.
4. Put a bird feeder outside the classroom window and record animals visiting. This video can then be used for data handling.
5. Record the weather outside the window. I can animate include a speed tool so you can condense longer videos.

6. Use time lapse of chicks hatching or small insects in a tank.

7. Use time lapse to record bread rising in an oven.

 

Most of the time we only have one iPad in the classroom so the teacher can share the videos with pupils as a shared resource in something such as Showbie.

Check out these great uses of stop motion video for Science classes. I truly enjoy  Stop motion video lessons as it provides  wonderful analytical problem solving situations for students.  When I conduct digital storytelling lessons, students display their critical thinking skills more often for me when using stop motion video, especially when using Legos. 

Vera Weber's curator insight, April 28, 2014 2:07 PM

Awesome ideas for Science!  Thank you so much!
