I’ve shared some of my favorite apps for teaching coding skills to students. From early elementary through high school, each one has a place in the hands of students holding a tablet. Whether you incorporate these apps into a lesson in math or science or provide time during an after school program for children to develop problem solving skills, you’re sure to find one on this list that meets the needs of your students!
A good public speaker takes their audience on a journey, leaving them feeling inspired and motivated. But structuring your speech to get your ideas across and keep your audience engaged all the way through is tricky. Try these eight storytelling techniques for a presentation that wows.
Tieto- ja viestintätekniikkaa (TVT) opetetaan suomalaisissa yläkouluissa harvoin valmiiden yhtenäisten oppimateriaalien avulla. Hyvin usein opettajat kokoavat materiaalit itse eri lähteistä. Ekonojan tutkimuksen mukaan kuitenkin myös TVT:n opetuksessa valmiista oppimateriaaleista on monenlaista hyötyä sekä opettajille että oppilaille. Ne muun muassa helpottavat opettajien tuntien suunnittelua. Oppilaat puolestaan hyötyvät mm. monipuolisista harjoitustehtävistä. Materiaalien tuottaminen ei saisikaan jäädä TVT:ssä pelkästään opettajien itse tehtäväksi.
There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.
Äikän 5. kurssin tyylisuunta + teos -työt tuotettiin sähköisesti. Tuloksena saatiin tutkielmia, Wikipedia-artikkeleita ja videoita. Kaikkiin liitettiin QR -koodit, jotka opiskelijat kävivät kiinnittämässä koulun seinille sopiviin lukupaikkoihin
" instaGrok is a research tool that I first started sharing with teachers a couple of years ago. Students can use instaGrok to search for a topic and quickly get lists of facts on that topic, links to information on that topic, videos, images, and quizzes on the topic."
"Making movies on the iPad is one of those activities that I often see in schools. I love to watch how quickly even very young students can produce a professional looking movie. It is a great way for them to illustrate what they have learnt. Normally I would say that editing movies on the iPad is best done using iMovie but it is not exactly cheap, especially if you have a raft of other apps you want your students to have. Here are a couple of apps for editing movies that do not cost the earth. Many of these apps also contain features found on the more expensive apps."
"2013 has been another memorable year for the iPad App Store. The number of apps designed specifically for the iPad hit the 500,000 milestone this year and is now well on its way to 600,000. By now, there are excellent iPad apps for just about any purpose. From heavy-duty productivity and business apps to wonderful educational apps, to beautiful apps for working with photos and for creating art, music, videos, and more. And of course we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to great iPad games and entertainment apps."
It is not a secret that I enjoy helping teachers learn how to use video creation tools with their students. Creating videos is a process that students enjoy because the final product is something that they can share with a potentially large audience.

"Mobile learning is becoming increasingly popular in the workplace. There are a variety of reasons for this, but many have to do with the accessibility of mobile devices, the savings associated with a mobile enabled learning program, and the convenience mobile learning affords the learner. In fact, today if there is a learning management system (or courses) that do not perform on mobile devices, it is borderline in-excusable. In five years time, it will be flat-out archaic."
"The National Film Board of Canada recently released a fantastic new iPad app for creating stop-motion videos. NFB StopMo Studio allows you to take a series of pictures and stitch them together to create a stop-motion video. Like similar apps you can adjust the number of images that are displayed per second."
