MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning Development | Scoop.it
MathChat is an interesting new iPad  app that I discovered recently. As its name indicate, MathChat is an app that allows students to collaborate and work together on math problems.  This collaboration takes place in group chats where members get to exchange messages, use pointers to show how to solve a problem, or draw and add arrows to provide illustration and guidance on Math concepts. This collaborative feature of MathChat resembles to a great extent the work Whiteboard apps do.

Collaboration -- for the expansion of multiple learning opportunities.  Should students be encouraged to collaborate with others on tests and assignments?  Why is it that when students look up a word in a dictionary or consult a reliable reference source, that's OK, but if they consult a friend, that is sometimes considered cheating?

PhotoMath, the camera-powered calculator, is now better than ever -- AppAdvice

PhotoMath, the camera-powered calculator, is now better than ever -- AppAdvice | Learning Development | Scoop.it
PhotoMath, “the world’s first camera calculator” which launched on the App Store earlier this month, has received an update making a number of significant improvements to the application.

First, iOS device owners should find that the speed of both math recognition and calculation has been boosted as of PhotoMath 1.1.0. You’ll find that using PhotoMath on your iPhone or iPod touch is a more efficient process as of the app’s most recent update.

Second, PhotoMath 1.1.0 now also allows users to delete their scanning history. If you’ve been using the application to snap and calculate countless number problems, you’ll surely appreciate this change (nobody wants a clogged-up history page in an iOS app, right?).

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning Development | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:

Bring your teaching to life with animated videos to engage your students. Select from a bank of content or use your own. Could be great for reinforcing and inspiring. I might have to try one of these.

Doctor Who’s latest adventure sees him teaming up with a Dalek and trying to save the universe, but also teaching children some early computer programming skills.

This isn’t a TV show, however: it’s a game due to launch on Wednesday 22 October on the broadcaster’s CBBC website. The Doctor and the Dalek includes voice narration from current Doctor Peter Capaldi, and a new story by Phil Ford, who has written for the TV show.

How Standing Desks Can Help Students Focus in the Classroom - Mind/Shift

How Standing Desks Can Help Students Focus in the Classroom - Mind/Shift | Learning Development | Scoop.it
The rise of the standing desk may appear to be a response to the modern, eat-at-your-desk, hunched-over worker chained to her computer, but history paints a different picture: Hemingway, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson all stood while they worked. Donald Rumsfeld had a standing desk, and so did Charles Dickens. Workplaces are moving toward more standing desks, but schools have been slower to catch on for a variety of reasons, including cost, convenience, and perhaps the assumption that “sit down and pay attention” is the best way to learn.

Report Finds Teachers Underutilize Resources for Digital Games in the Classroom - Mind/Shift

Report Finds Teachers Underutilize Resources for Digital Games in the Classroom - Mind/Shift | Learning Development | Scoop.it

"While more teachers are using digital games in the classroom, how they decide which games to use and why is less standardized, according to a teacher survey of 694 K-8 teachers by the Games and Learning Publishing Council called Level Up Learning: A National Survey on Teaching with Digital Games.

The report finds that teachers learn about games through informal means, such as peers within the school or school district, and could benefit from more explicit training programs. By not having a more formal process, the report finds that “teachers may not be getting exposure to the broader range of pedagogical strategies, resources, and types of games that can enhance and facilitate digital game integration.”

So a quick session on gamification (turning lessons into game-oriented learning experiences) would be helpful for moving forward, but so would a session on the skills that students can build through existing games.
