Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, January 22, 11:02 PM

Since Xtranormal ceased trading last year .. I have searched the web for a replacement without much success.  However, Plotagon runs a good close second; it is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

I am piloting it now it's completely free and currently in beta stage, but you can start using it right now.

5 Proven Ways to Engage Students In Your Classroom - Edudemic

5 Proven Ways to Engage Students In Your Classroom - Edudemic | MeeMetICT | Media, Technologie, Apps en Tools in het Onderwijs | Scoop.it
“No matter what subject they teach or what age group their students fall into, all teachers face the same basic challenge: They have to find a way to actively engage students in the learning process. Today’s learners tend to respond best to interactive teaching methods, so many instructors have integrated technology into their lesson plans. …”
Via Beth Dichter
more...
Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 20, 5:37 PM

The five proven ways to engage students are:

* Use Responsive Technology - There are many ways to have students respond to questions throughout a class period. One that is free that you may want to check out is Socrative.

* Define Objectives - Make sure there are clearly define goals that are written in student-friendly language. And be prepared to make quick changes if the responsive technology shows the need.

* Add Context - The post explains this as having a pre-assessment question to help gauge the existing topic knowledge, followed by a question part way through the period to help see the students understanding. At the end of the period a final question (post assessment) would help see if the students are understanding the concept taught.

* Keep it Simple - Make sure that your presentation material is simple. Too much information on a slide may be too much for the students to understand. Remember that visuals are critical and classroom discussion will also help students learn new material.

* Make it Interactive - With technology it is easier to keep students engaged, but make sure to change things up throughout the lesson. There are many great resources online that help with this, and many have been explored in this Scoop.it.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, July 21, 12:40 AM

An excellent article: Engage student using these methods. 

1. Use Responsive Technology - not just tech for tech's sake, such as writing answers. Use tech that demands a response. 

2. Define Objectives - Tell students what they need to be able to do, know, learn, show. And tell them early on, so they get time to practise it before you assess. 

3. Add Context - Make it connect with what they know already. Look for prior learning (the old KWL chart is great for this!) 

4. Keep it Simple - Your presentation and the way the content is delivered should be simple to access.

5. Make it Interactive - With technology it is easier to keep students engaged, but make sure to change things up throughout the lesson and the term!

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper. On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | MeeMetICT | Media, Technologie, Apps en Tools in het Onderwijs | Scoop.it
Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning? Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use. Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!
