Jess McCulloch's participation at StoryWorld 2012 last week sparked a lot of interest. So, here's an article from the archive which gives great insight into the fantastic work that she's doing .

Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms

Many Ways to Tell a Story: How Transmedia Is Transforming Education In and Out of Classrooms | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

Cheryl Frose's curator insight, June 12, 6:03 PM

Transmedia, a broad descriptive word that literally translated means “across media” and encompasses many strategies that transverse industries, is generally regarded as the use of multiple media platforms to tell a story or story experience. Though the word “transmedia” is thought to have entertainment franchise origins, its adaptation for education purposes is both valuable and becoming more and more common. While teachers like Sansing are using coding and programming in their language arts instruction, others are taking advantage of increasingly sophisticated apps and interactive media for classroom use.

David Collet's curator insight, June 12, 9:28 PM

I guess this another favorite topic for me. Imagine using transmedia to teach maths and include cross over language components. After all maths has a language of its own.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 18, 12:15 PM

Transmedia approaches encourage (or even force) people to actively acknowledge and design for a fluid and multi-dimensional, rather than linear, media environment.  For the human brain, stories are not constrained by what's on the page. Transmedia begins to replicate how we think and encourages producers to innovate in each platform to create multiple touchpoints that facilitate our natural ability to imagine, project, expand and experience.

The Art of Asking Questions

The Art of Asking Questions | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
At one time or another, most of us have been disappointed by the caliber of the questions students ask in class, online, or in the office. Many of them are such mundane questions: “Will material from the book be on the exam?” “How long should the paper be?” “Can we use Google to find references?” “Would you repeat what you just said? I didn’t get it all down in my notes.” Rarely do they ask thoughtful questions that probe the content and stir the interest of the teacher and other students.

iPads Allow Kids With Challenges To Play In High School's Band - NPR

iPads Allow Kids With Challenges To Play In High School's Band - NPR | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it

"There's a steady stream of hype surrounding the pluses and pitfalls of classroom tablet computers. But for a growing number of special education students tablets and their apps are proving transformative. The tablets aren't merely novel and fun. With guidance from creative teachers, they are helping to deepen engagement, communication, and creativity.

 

In a typical red brick public school building in the Fresh Meadows section of Queens, New York, one creative and passionate music instructor is using tablet computers to help reach students with disabilities. In the process, he's opening doors for some kids with severe mental and physical challenges.

 

On the surface, the PS 177 Technology Band looks like a typical high school orchestra. But there are two big differences. First, while they use traditional instruments, they also play iPads. And all of the band members have disabilities. Some have autism spectrum disorder."

From Moodle to Edmodo to Inquisiq r3, there's a lot of tools you can use to manage, track, and deliver courses and training programs in your school. They're called Learning Management Solutions (LMS) or sometimes Learning Management Systems. Either way, how do you pick which is the best?

 

Key Takeaways

 

- The LMS industry is now a billion dollar plus industry.

- There are hundreds of LMS solutions out there.

- Moodle, Edmodo, and Blackboard are the big names in the industry.

- The most popular tool is not the most popular on social media. See: Edmodo vs Moodle

- Scroll down to the bottom to see the difference between who follows these companies on different social networks. View the LinkedIn stats in particular.
