Super excited for BISD to use this great new product.

jspellos's curator insight, July 2, 2013 9:54 AM

Looks really promising, though I wish the video on their site had audio as well (or audio that worked, at least).  Still, I'll keep my eyes out for this one.

LiveSlide to be available in August 2013 is designed to allow interactive slide technology to go mobile.

Free Technology for Teachers: New Course - Google Drive and the Common Core

Free Technology for Teachers: New Course - Google Drive and the Common Core | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have had the good fortune to introduce many educators to using Google Drive to help their students meet Common Core Standards in English Language Arts. All of those introductions have come in the form of in-person workshops. After many requests for this and after much planning I am now offering Google Drive and the Common Core as a three hour webinar series. While the webinar series is not free it is significantly less than cost of flying me to your school for the day.

On a Mac, you can choose to print a Web page, then instead of sending the ‘print’ job to a physical printer, you can export as a PDF. Then, open the PDF with OSX Preview app to annotate before emailing to others for their review.

 

On the iPad, the ‘Print’ option doesn’t have a PDF export option. This is where the Universal app Web to PDF comes in handy. Upon launching, you are presented with a Web browser to go to the page you need a PDF of. Browse to a Web page and choose the button at the bottom right of the screen, “Create PDF”. The resulting PDF is a great way to read a Web page later when offline too!

MOOCs: Making the Most of What You Learn

MOOCs: Making the Most of What You Learn | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it
"MOOCs do represent a significant educational innovation that can make the learning process more engaging. Often students can learn as much or more through online interaction with their peers studying the same subjects as those who participate in a typical campus-based course. Within a MOOC peers may grade each others’ work and provide valuable feedback that helps students to recognize their strengths and weaknesses. While all of this can enrich the learning process, it doesn’t provide recognized evidence of the learning that has taken place."

40 Open Education Resources You Should Know About | Edudemic | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

One of the best things the Internet blessed us with (besides Maru the box-loving cat) involves increased educational opportunities for children and adults alike. Although some progress still needs to be made when it comes to accessibility opening lessons up to special needs learners, there are plenty of resources for engaging a wide variety of absorption styles.

 

Whether you’re a teacher looking to incorporate new media into a classroom setting, a homeschooling family, or a parent hoping to supplement the day’s formal coursework, the following resources offer some particularly great examples of using digital technology to get kids exploring the universe. They’re fun. They’re free. And they feature a diverse selection of topics and strategies, meaning almost every user will find something of interest.

Technology Tools to Get Teachers Started

Technology Tools to Get Teachers Started | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

The culture of learning is changing, and technology is playing a major role in the transformation. Educators and students are altering the very nature of the classroom experience by increasingly turning to technology as an integral component of learning.

 

The result is that school is beginning to more closely resemble the real world, thereby becoming more valuable, relevant, and useful for everyone involved.

 

Sounds good, doesn't it? That's certainly the ideal, but there is so much out there: wikis, blogs, Twitter, social networking, and the near-infinite resources of the Web. Teachers, like a lot of us, may be overwhelmed, especially if, like a lot of us, they don't have a natural affinity for technology and the online world.

More Spanish: Five for Friday: 5 Web 2.0 tools to record oral communication | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

Today I want to share my favorite five Web 2.0 tools to record oral communication in the classroom.The biggest shift in oral assessment for my class occurred because of the variety of web 2.0 tools that can be used to record students. I still believe the best way to practice the language is in person, with a partner or in small groups, but the best way to formally assess a large group of students (at the same time) or gauge their progress is by using the following tools. Each one will fulfill a different need.

3 Big Reasons To Consider A ‘Digital Classroom’ | Edudemic

3 Big Reasons To Consider A ‘Digital Classroom’ | Edudemic | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

Because of their youth, students are at the front lines of the parallel digital experience. They were born into a world in which rapid technology, the Internet, even online profiles would play a de facto role in their lives. And whether they’re sharing pop-culture sound bytes or completing online assignments for school, students exist comfortably with an online parallel world. And educators have every opportunity to not only buy into, but reap the benefits of that phenomenon.

Five Ways to Empower Students

What's the most powerful resource in your classroom? Is it the formidable stack of textbooks, the encyclopedia, the computer? As much of a reader and education technology enthusiast as I am, I believe this most powerful resource is something else entirely. It's something collective -- the diverse imaginations, observations, opinions, hopes and dreams of students. By empowering students, you can engage them further in learning, provide a more democratic learning experience and, of course, find the most powerful resource in your classroom: us.

Good Read: MOOCs Take on the 1 Percent

Good Read: MOOCs Take on the 1 Percent | NHS Media Center | Scoop.it

“The fight over MOOCs is really about the story we tell ourselves about higher education: what it is, who it’s for, how it’s delivered, who delivers it. The most widely told story about college focuses obsessively on elite schools and answers a crazy mix of questions: How will we teach complex thinking and skills? How will we turn adolescents into well-rounded members of the middle class? Who will certify that education is taking place? How will we instill reverence for Virgil? Who will subsidize the professor’s work?”

For others, it's a forum where a class discussion can unfold 24/7. Either way, blogging can be a powerful educational tool. Suggestions for setting up a classroom blog follow.
