Best Practices In Blended Learning

Best Practices In Blended Learning | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it

Originally, blended learning referred to adding an online component to instructor-led training or classroom education.

But now that technology offers so many varied options, a blended approach has evolved to mean the use of more than one delivery method to provide and enhance training and support. This is the way of the future.

Life After the Hour of Code - Edutopia

Life After the Hour of Code - Edutopia | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it
Now that the excitement of the Hour of Code has passed, and you still vividly remember your students' eyes light up while completing their coding challenges, you may be wondering how to keep that excitement going in your classroom. The only thing is, you don't teach computer science -- and you have no idea how to teach coding.

The great news is, that's fine!

I found this on Twitter this morning by way of Rebekah Radice. These ten steps are so basic, but a good reminder of what does work. I've learned this by trial and error on my own, but also learned it through my digital marketing class that I'm taking right now. These aren't hard steps, especially for most technical communicators, yet it's a good refresher.

Terri Rice's curator insight, February 13, 2015 11:51 AM

  This article caught my attention because my daughter is involved with a young man who, now I realize, must have a form of this disorder. I will strive to be a great deal more patient and creative with him in the future.

   I was very intrigued with the very last paragraph oh of this article. The topic of Universal Design is very close to my heart because I am "disabled", I prefer the term "challenged", but most people seem to think using the negative word. Regardless of labels, I need to have UD implemented for me and I also insist on my classrooms having arrangements and/or seating, plus technological tools in place to accommodate all persons without having to ask...and then wait for admin to follow through. Anyway, my point at the beginning of this very long speech was how I was glad to see UD referred to, but I was then disappointed because no concrete examples were shared as to how the office/meeting environment can implement UD.

    I do recommend reading this article, though the links are disappointing too. They take you in circles so beware.

Study Shows iPads Could Improve Literacy Skills in Young Children - InformED

Study Shows iPads Could Improve Literacy Skills in Young Children - InformED | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it
A recent study has found that kindergartners who use iPads in school are likely to score higher on literacy tests than those who do not.


The study, which was carried out in Auburn, Maine early last year, looked at 266 kindergartners who had been given free iPads to use in class as part of an experiment. Out of the 266 students, 129 were given lessons using iPads, while the remaining 137 were taught through traditional methods.


The results, which were published on Apple’s unofficial tech blog, TUAW, showed that in addition to better scores in every literacy test, children who were taught through the use of an iPad also showed an increased interest in learning and were more enthusiastic about going to school."

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia

Add Coding to Your Elementary Curriculum. . . Right Now - Edutopia | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it

"Code.org sums up the situation nicely:

"Computer science drives innovation in the U.S. economy and society. Despite growing demand for jobs in the field, it remains marginalized throughout the U.S. K-12 education system."

There are many reasons for this. As you well know, teachers are already stretched pretty thin, and often it seems like there's just no bandwidth to add something new to a very full schedule. Additionally, some schools have few or no computers and/or tablets for classroom use.

But the earlier we introduce children to coding, the more comfortable they will be when presented with more in-depth learning opportunities in middle and high school. Also, early exposure to coding helps teach children how important it is to understand computers as the valuable tools they are rather than merely fun playthings."

Audio Podcasting with iOS and YouTube - Moving at the Speed of Creativity

Audio Podcasting with iOS and YouTube - Moving at the Speed of Creativity | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it

 - Moving at the Speed of Creativity"In my continuing quest to find streamlined ways to audio record and share conference presentations at professional development events, today I used the free iOS app Voice Recorder Pro to record my three sessions at the Oklahoma EdTechTeam’s Google Summit, as well as Jake Heister’s session (with permission, of course) on Google Search. Normally I would publish audio recordings like this to my “Fuel for Educational Change Agents” secondary podcast channel, and I may still do that, but for now this workflow worked very smoothly and was MUCH less time consuming. It took 38 minutes from start to finish to publish these 4 audio recordings to YouTube, using my iPhone. The workflow I used was:

1. Audio record with the iOS app Voice Record Pro (free).
2. In the app, rename the file with the name of the presentation and add a photo to the file.
3. Save the audio recording as a video to your camera roll, first selecting the desired “template” for your accompanying image.
4. Upload the video to YouTube with the free iOS app, “YouTube Capture.”

A Collection Of Beautiful Educational Sketchnotes for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Collection Of Beautiful Educational Sketchnotes for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | plurilingüisme | Scoop.it
A few weeks ago, I shared here a list of some powerful iPad apps for sketchnoting (visual note taking) and I argued that sketchnoting has several cognitive pluses (e.g easy memory recall, quick processing of data, enhanced concentration, to mention but a few). I have recently bought a stylus and started experimenting with this new form of taking notes. My sketches are not the best but the more I practice the better they become. One of the things I learned from the different video tutorials I watched in this regard is that as a beginner sketchnoter you need to build a rich visual vocabulary that will facilitate your visual representations and to do this you need to have access to works of expert sketchnoters. Observing how they use shapes, colours, graphic organizers, text...etc will definitely help you learn how to create your own sketchnotes. One of the people I would recommend for anyone starting to learn sketchnoting is Langwitches.
