Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it

Catchbox is a new throwable microphone designed to liven up audience participation, and in turn reduce the faffing around that seems to occur whenever a conference turns to questions from the audience.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged. That’s because, along with being able to sustain being dropped, the device has been engineered to automatically mute the sound when flying through the air or if it falls.

Design Thinking for Educators

Design Thinking for Educators | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it
Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.
Melissa Marshall's insight:

This site is a treasure trove of information on 'design thinking.' If you teach any type of practical course, this will surely help! There are loads of applications for this type of thinking, and it helps to ask the students what they think matters first.

Melissa Marshall's insight:

This article goes through some steps that you can use to set limits on the time users spend on the iPad. It is more useful at home with young children where they can be locked out with the passcode. Over the holidays, it might be a good idea to set the passcode to something the adult knows, and not the child, in order for kids to get some fresh air.

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Classroom Flipping: Jump Over The Hurdles - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it
Flipped Classroom is successful only when instructions are moved from group learning space to individual learning space. Now what the hurdle here could be.

Via Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.
Melissa Marshall's insight:

The hallmark of a flipped classroom is that it allows students to access the content independently of the teacher - but this creates responsibility for the student who may have never had this before. How do you foster independent learning and support students who, for whatever reason, do not access the content quickly or progress through as you would expect?

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, December 16, 2013 6:44 PM

The article is correct, not all students have internet access at home. In Thailand, almost every university student has a friend who has access to the internet (Mobile  phone) and of course campus has it. It comes down to time and resource management.

An App That Will Never Forget a File.

An App That Will Never Forget a File. | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it

by Paul Boutin

 

"Evernote provides a comprehensive single archive of your digital life, giving you one location to store and find practically everything saved on a computer or phone. And the files are automatically backed up on Evernote’s servers. It even makes sharing things with others far easier than emailing attachments around — but it will do that, too.

 

"The only real downside with Evernote is that it has so many features, which can make getting started with the app daunting. But once you understand how to do a few things with it, you can get working and worry about the rest later.

 

"Here’s the big point to understand: Use Evernote as the place you put everything you might need later. You can drag it in, tap it in or forward it in, and then search for it, share it or post it later. When you need to dig it up, you don’t first ask yourself which device it’s on — it’s in Evernote, from whatever device is at hand."

I keep going on and on about Evernote and I mean it. It is wonderful and means I am well on the way to a paperless office at home. Everything useful is scanned; everything not needed is shredded. The Evernote web clipper is a fantastic resource for saving stuff from online - you do not need to worry that one day the info will be missing. Highly recommended - and free.

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal | Prendi eLearning - Education, Technology, iPads... | Scoop.it

Vancouver teacher Brad Ovenell-Carter has been doodling notes in Moleskine notebooks at conferences for a while, causing heads to turn. People used to ask him for copies and he would snap a photo and send it to them.

 

When the iPad came along, Ovenell-Carter migrated his "sketch-notes" to his tablet, using a stylus to draw into an App called Paper (he preferred its simplicity to higher-end tools for graphic designers). That’s when he became an exemplar for the growing sub-culture of paperless learners, doodlers, iPad-only learners, live-scribers or — his personal favorite — "sketch-noters." Their craft raises new questions about the future of learning and even communication. 

 

In March of 2012, Ovenell-Carter was at an education conference doodling on his iPad and someone next to him suggested he Tweet out the notes. "So I did," he said. "I decided I would tweet them out and if they make sense to you, great. If they don’t, no sweat. They are just my notes." His Pinterest page and Twitter feed have ramped up with enthusiastic followers.

 

Sketch-noters have their own club called Sketchnote Army, led by Milwaukee-based designer Mike Rohde. He’s been championing sketch-notes since 2003, authoring The Sketchnote Handbook. His Sketchnote Army site profiles sketches from the growing community that includes more than 1,300 Twitter followers. Another practitioner, Rachel Smith, gave a popular TEDx talk about "Drawing in Class" that explored the potential for taking visual notes, a hobby-turned-profession for her, which she calls "graphic recording." She argues that visual note taking only requires listening for relevant points to jot down and doesn’t require immense artistic ability.
