9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

I have been sharing a great deal of educational posters here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I love using posters with my students and I know many of you love them too. Sometimes it seems like we can not find the exact poster we want for our class and this is when we need to use our techy skills to craft our own posters. The process is not very hard and anybody with the rudimentary tech knowledge can do it in a matter of minutes.

Like it a lot, but am worried that there's a lack of privacy, if we're talking about young learners.

Traditional Teachers Vs 21st Century Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Traditional Teachers Vs 21st Century Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Below are two of my favourite videos I have watched several times. The first video features a set of things or rather  traits of  traditional teachers. I using the word  traditional because the word traditional with some reserve as its meaning is loose  and can be interpreted to mean many things. The second video projects a positive image of teachers or what is known as "the 2st century teaching skills".

Aplicaciones didácticas de google Sketch Up en un curso de matemáticas a distancia

Aplicaciones didácticas de google Sketch Up en un curso de matemáticas a distancia | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Manuel Durán Vacas
Profesor de matemáticas del IEDA

Es indigno de hombres excelentes perder horas   como esclavos en el trabajo del cálculo, que, si fueran usadas las máquinas, podría ser relegado con seguridad a cualquier persona.

Gottfried Leibniz


Introducción


En la actualidad, los profesores de matemáticas disponemos de recursos para la enseñanza infinitamente más potentes que aquellos de los que se disponía hasta hace poco tiempo, como son los programas de cálculo simbólico, por ejemplo Wiris, o de geometría dinámica, como es GeoGebra. Estos programas son de acceso gratuito y se encuentran al alcance de todos, haciendo que, por primera vez en la historia, el sueño de Leibniz pueda llegar a ser una realidad. Es decir: hacer que nuestros alumnos/as prescindan de los tediosos trabajos manuales para que presten toda su atención a las relaciones y propiedades que presentan entre sí los entes matemáticos. 


En el curso 2011-2012 tuve el privilegio de ser profesor en un curso a distancia de preparación para la prueba de acceso a los ciclos superiores de formación profesional, en cuyo programa de estudios había una parte dedicada a la geometría clásica del espacio. Es bien sabida la importancia que tiene en el estudio de esta materia que el alumno/a pueda tener una representación visual de los distintos elementos geométricos, por lo que me embarqué en la búsqueda de herramientas informáticas que me permitieran lograr este objetivo.


Existen programas que pueden utilizarse para el estudio de la geometría espacial, como son Cabri 3D o Mathematica; pero son programas de pago y llegar a utilizarlos con soltura requiere una larga curva de aprendizaje. Por lo que, finalmente, acabé poniendo mi atención en el programa de diseño gráfico y modelado en 3D SketchUp.
