- Eight ways to create screencasts and slideshares | Tech & Learning

- Eight ways to create screencasts and slideshares | Tech & Learning | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

By Joyce Valenza

 

"Recently I’ve been exploring the options for slide-casting and screen-casting...

 

"I’d like to begin to archive and more broadly share professional development. I’d like to offer teachers easy ways to present and archive instruction. To offer students new strategies for presentation and for archiving their work. To help me rehearse and archive my own formal presentations. And I am planning to do a little online adjuncting in the fall.

 

"And, as more schools and more individual teachers adopt the Flipped Classroom model, we will be looking for options to present content, lecture, and video as homework, so we can devote class time to more interactive and engaging collaborative learning strategies."

The greatest tragedy of progressive education is not the students' lack of skills, but of teachable character.

A totally different perspective of  some of todays's students that I rather concur with. Its all closely related to teaching to the test as well.

Exploring Literacy in Cyberspace - ReadWriteThink

Exploring Literacy in Cyberspace - ReadWriteThink | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
OVERVIEW
Whether they realize it or not, students are already immersed in a world of multiple literacies. This lesson invites students to become aware of the analytical skills that they commonly use when reading. The class first generates and categorizes a list of strategies and thought processes that can help to make sense of a print text, such as connecting thinking, visualizing, noticing text features, etc. They create symbols to represent each type of strategy, and work in pairs to identify strategies used in reading newspaper articles. This think-aloud activity is repeated with informational websites, as students transfer these skills, along with some other strategies, to navigating and reading online texts. Students then compare and contrast their reading of print and online texts, sharing what they have discovered about the thought processes and skills they used.
