Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps

Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it

Teachers and administrators get a snap-shot view of each student’s most recent work in Docs, Sites, Blogger and Picasa, organized by class and student. Behind the scenes we create a folder in drive for each class for each student, then we give the right teachers access – no more sharing issues for students – student just drop their homework in the right folder for each class.


Via Anthony Beal
Mark Ayton's insight:

This is amazing!

You've bit the bullet and started using Google Docs with your learners. They're happily sharing stuff with you, but there's so much stuff in your shared folder it's all becoming a mess. How do you organise everything so that only the relevant stuff is shared, it's all in a structure your can navigate, and keep track of everything?

Shame it's not free, but at $4 per student per year Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps might just save your sanity ;-)

Google in Education | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it
Mark Ayton's insight:

I like Google Apps. I especially like their potential in education. Up until about a month ago Google's information on this was a little cumbersome to navigate with a few deadend URLs!. The site is now ordered by user type, tools & solutions, and general information. This will make Google in Education even easier to get to grips with!

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it

"The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells..."


Via Beth Dichter, Nancy Jones, Carlos Marcelo, ernestprats
Mark Ayton's insight:

This is an amazing resource. It lays out a matrix of 5 tech use levels against 5 activity types and provides video case studies in each matrix block for Maths, Science, Social Studies and Lauguage Arts. That's 100 easily accessed short video case studies! Although aimed at American K12 teachers the examples cover an amazing array of tools and techniques that will readily transfer to UK FE and Skills.

I love the idea of mobile note taking and have settled on mind maps for this task in meetings. For on-the-fly notes, memory joggers and to-do lists, pen and paper have taken some beating.

Write or dictate notes, add pictures and compile check-lists to a note board that synchronises across your devices and Google Drive. What next... Shared Keep boards hopefully?

Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online. | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it
Store photos and docs online. Access them from any PC, Mac or phone. Create and work together on Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents.
Mark Ayton's insight:

When you're comfortable with MS Office, despite the sharing and real-time collaboration advantages, the leap to Google Docs can seem just too much! Then there's all your existing Word, Excel and Powerpoint files, will they all need reworking?

Fret no more! MS has replicated just about every Google feature in a very familiar Office environment. It's web-based so will run on any device with a browser. It has all the common MS Office menu items and features, plus it allows sharing and real time collaboration. There are even forms for collecting survey / quiz data in spreadsheets.

I'm not aware of any scripting / add-in capability yet, but I'm sure it won't be far away.

- differentiation platform and
- scaffolded support system all rolled into one FREE iOS app.
Learners and/or practitioners can draw on a virtual whiteboard, record their drawings, narration and even annotate over pictures.
Ask3 also...
- allows learners to automatically upload these screencasts so that they are instantly viewable from all iPads logged into the same "class".
- also gives learners the ability to comment on each other's video - from within the video timeline; they can pause the screencast and add their own comment(s), question(s) or suggestion(s). All of these comments are instantly viewable for the class and practitioner to see and reply to.
There's more.
If text isn't enough to answer a question. Peers and/or practitioners can...
- pause the video where they want to provide help,
- comment,
- ask a question or solve the problem.
Ask3 then allows them to screencast over that paused image and to create their own video response, taking over from where the original video left off.
The video response is then available for the class to view in the timeline as well.
I'm sure that's enough to enthuse potential users.

Being an FE and Skills practitioner isn't easy.

Practitioners can produce excellent lesson plans and ensure they are fully prepared, only to fall flat in the learning environment.

What can these practitioners, and those engaged in initial teacher training, do?

To start with they need to know ...

their audience (learners) andwhat it actually takes to be an effective practitioner.

This interactive step-by-step visual guide provides some ideas and food for thought/discussion.

NOTE: Users access 9 additional infographics by clicking on each of the "9 Events in Learning"; each additional infographic has 27 tips of how practitioners may achieve each of the events in their learning environments.
