8 Great Reasons to Flip Your Classroom (and 4 of the Wrong Reasons), from Bergmann and Sams | Emerging Education Technology

8 Great Reasons to Flip Your Classroom (and 4 of the Wrong Reasons), from Bergmann and Sams | Emerging Education Technology | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Here are the 4 Bad reasons:

Taken from article:

-Because you think it will create a 21st Century classroom: Pedagogy should always drive technology, not vice-versa.
-Because you think you will become cutting edge: Flipping isn’t about the newest tools.
-Because you think it exempts you from being a good teacher: Good teaching is much more than delivering good content.
-Because you hope it will make your job easier: That’s not going to happen and it’s not what the flip is about. The nature of the job changes, in many good ways, but it is not about making the work easier, and there are plenty of challenges along the way as the process is adopted and put to use.

Online text to speech (TTS) converter - SpokenText.net

Online text to speech (TTS) converter - SpokenText.net | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Take-Away

I am happy with my test drive of this Text to Speech converter.  It sounds more human than most free non-mac default programs.  The biggest advantage is that it saves it online for you for 30 days for free.  The biggest disadvantage is that there is a slight 1 minute delay in processing.

Therefore, I will use it when I am not at my primary computer or only when I know that I will want to save it as an .mp3 to listen to later or for sharing on the web with others

Ken Morrison's comment, August 1, 2012 8:11 AM
This is a very nice blog. I remember when teachers were excited about the idea of giving everyone a $xx.xx clicker so that we could record everyones multiple choice 'opinion'. If used wisely, Twitter is a much better use of the same concept. I like some of the other opinions as well. Specifically, I like the idea that it connects students in new ways to network and learn answers together outside of class.

The Teacher’s Visual Guide To Social Media | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Posted by Terry Heick via onlinecolleges.net

 

"What can social media do for you in your classroom? A lot, actually.

The use of social media in formal learning environments is an exciting possibility for a variety of reasons, including authenticity of learning materials, widespread availability, low cost (assuming technology to access it is in place), and other potential, including higher-level thinking possibilities, many of which we outlined in our twitter spectrum.

I like that these will be seachable so that they can be shared. I'm excited to test drive this. I agree that it may be better than social bookmarking, because even a well-organized diggo tag will have things off topic or for some audiences because we all have different ideas of the meaning of a word used for tagging.
