MyScript Calculator - Handwriting calculator

MyScript Calculator - Handwriting calculator | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it

Get MyScript Calculator - Handwriting calculator. This is a great App that I saw one of my students using when doing Physics calculations in class.

 

Not only does it convert handwriting into digital text but it then does he calculation for you. Will also carry out complex functions too - how impressive is this!

Team WhiteBoarding with Twiddla - Painless Team Collaboration for the Web

Team WhiteBoarding with Twiddla - Painless Team Collaboration for the Web | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it
Twiddla is a free, no-setup, web-based meeting playground. Mark up websites, graphics, and photos, or start brainstorming on a blank canvas. Voice and Text chat too!

 

Rather impressed by this tool. I like the idea that it is a truly collaborative board so you can edit other students work. Treating it like a Padlet means that students can move other students notes around. 

 

The grid feature is an added bonus which allows you to position objects where you want. You can also import images and websites as "backgrounds". Lots of very powerful tools.

Results processed as grpahs/charts and can be downloaded to Excel. Great "live" integration options within PowerPoint.

 

 

Does not give student feedback/self marking quizzes.

 

Amazing help and support features available.

Let's take a look at the three major areas we've improved upon in the latest versions of Fuse on iOS and Android. Now while shooting video you can pause a recording. Fuse now opens to the camera view.
gideonwilliams's insight:

Fuse has made some changes to its App on Android and iOS. Was my recording App of choice before Screenr and Screencastomatic.

 

Wonder if you can save to SWF format on iOS?

Plickers - Transforming Student Assessment and Data Collection

Another Quiz style, interactive polling system but with a big difference. Teacher creates the classes through the website and assigns names. 

 

Download the App on iphone, pad or android device

 

Each student is given an answer card (QR code style) which has four possible answers: A, B, C and D. 

 

Teacher gives out the question eg on a PowerPoint. Students choose an answer and hold up their card (in the correct rotation).

 

Either through web cam or scanning with the camera, each score is automatically recorded and stored in a chart. 

 

Looks very promising

Here is a great video showing it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeUge9K7SGk

PhET Simulations

PhET Simulations | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it

Dont often Scoop Subject specific features but these are utterly astonishing. High quality simulations for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geology and Maths.

 

Amazing  variety and variation within simulations. Models are chosen well eg Conservation of Energy from KE to PE is based on a skateboarder on a ramp. Options for this include energy transfer to Heat via friction. 

 

The electrical circuits model also allows you to explore pupil misconceptions with ideas such as pd and current

 

Many simulations also include graphical analysis and you can choose a range of ways to present the information

Blendspace - Create lessons with digital content in 5 minutes

Blendspace - Create lessons with digital content in 5 minutes | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it
Blendspace allows educators to blend their classroom with digital content.

 

Interesting idea here. Create mini lessons based on what appears to be links to videos, websites, presentations, images, uploading your own files and quizzes.

 

Could work well for cover lessons and perhaps be added to VLEs.

 

Claims to make a 5 minute lesson is intriguing.....Assuming it does not mean the lesson lasts 5 minutes!

Corinne Owen's curator insight, March 25, 1:03 AM

This program is brilliant in its simplicity. It allows the user to take any jpeg image and add interactive regions for labels and annotations.

 

From labelling the structure of the Earth to explaining the

water cycle, diagrams make for great learning in the diverse classroom. The use of visuals as a teaching and learning strategy supports both student comprehension, retention and promotes communication.

Top 100 Tools for Learning 2014 | Jane Hart

Top 100 Tools for Learning 2014 | Jane Hart | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it

I spent the weekend compiling this year’s Top 100 Tools List, updating the Top 100 Tools site and producing a slideset that I have uploaded to Slideshare and embedded below.

 

 I’ve also done a full analysis of this year’s list, and produced aBest of Breed categorised list, but here are some of the highlights from this year’s list.

 

The list was compiled from 1,038 votes from learning professionals from 61 countries worldwide

Lots of potential. Simply set the date in the future, write your message and add your email address then Submit.

 

Lots of amazing uses eg as part of INSET training with staff to get them to set goals they would like to achieve after a certain time (Letter to self). Could be used by students for goal setting in a subject or a time capsule for Year 7 students on entry!

Memrise - Learn something new everyday

Memrise - Learn something new everyday | Web2.0 Tools for Teachers and Students | Scoop.it

Given a nod about this by MFL Department.

 

Learn, memorise and testing site. Great for MFL but could be done in any other subject.

 

The teacher creates a course and on it puts a number of terms and their translation. If doing simple vocab, you can select from items already added. You also have the option of recording audio to support the learning. You can  add additional columns with pictures and text attributes (eg noun, feminine). You can also add extra levels..

 

Once done you open up to the students. The student learns the word (planting). You read/listen to each term and the translation. You can also choose a mem to see the word used in context (these are help tips suggested by others and could be video, picture, sound etc) As they learn they will be given tasks that include a mixture of memorising the words and testing their learning of it. There are a range of testing questions used.

 

You can save and exit at any time and go back to where you were

 

Tests are done against the clock. If you create groups, students can compete against each other and see their scores in a scoreboard table. 

 

Huge potential and opportunities.. Go and look at all the different features that can be done. I really like the Learn to use a Rubiks Cube course which combines videos and a range of quiz types..
