Blended Learning Cycle

Blended Learning Cycle | My TechED | Scoop.it
Don Crandall's insight:

This is THE video that changed my classroom. I do not follow it exactly. I have tweeked it to fit the needs of 6th graders and my teaching style. Still working out the kinks and so far it has been very positive.

Don Crandall's insight:
Students use this along with Google Slides to create animated .gif files. Students have used this to show how moon phases change, the difference between transverse and longitudinal waves and I use it to create to animate drawings I have made.

Doctopus, distribute and manage students Google Docs | My TechED | Scoop.it
Don Crandall's insight:

No more instructions for students to copy my google docs. Now I pass out my google docs with Doctopus. Doctopus allows the teacher to pass out the same document to all students or different docs to different students or a document to a group of students. Pass it on...

Paparazzi!

Paparazzi! | My TechED | Scoop.it
Don Crandall's insight:

A great way make a poster or screencapture of a whole website!

 

You will need to download the .dmg file and install. After install simply copy the URL of the website you need and paste it into Paparassi's "URL" bar. Use the "finger" icon in lower left to browse the URL (use to get into a login website). Use the "arrow/rectangle" icon to download a image file.

 

To make the poster out of letter paper and a normal printer I used http://www.blockposters.com/.

Scale Model of Earth/Sun/Moon

A model that compares the sizes of and distances between the Earth, Sun and Moon.
Don Crandall's insight:
This is an example of how I used Prezi to show size and scale of the Earth, Sun and Moon.The zooming nature of Prezi makes it possible to compare sizes of things very nicely.  I also find it very useful when presenting content as a whole class discussion (the presenter can zoom easily around the presentation at the direction of the students).
