How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | Professional Learning Facilitator | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.

Reading with iPads – the differenc makes a difference


Via Nik Peachey
Anne Sturgess's insight:

The key statement is "Teachers will be required to adapt the way they teach to accommodate this new technology." Several factors mentioned here influenced the outcomes for students, not the least being the nervousness of teachers and the lack of suitable e-reading material; not a combination conducive to improving learning outcomes for students under any conditions, especially for students who already experience difficulty with aspects of learning. Schools looking to adopt a blended e-learning approach to teaching will indeed need to ensure that they have a robust infrastructure although not all e-learning resources are dependent on continuous web access. The winning formula: Sound pedagogical practice + the most engaging & appropriate technology available = successful outcomes for learners.

Manal Karnib's curator insight, April 22, 2013 6:41 AM

 iPads are an effective tool used within classrooms as it keeps students engaged with their work. Walsh (2009) discusses the affect technology is having on society as well as in the classrooms. As students are now given the opportunity to read electronically, allowing students to visually and interactively view novels through technological advancements such as iPad’s, enhances ones understanding of specific issues as it allows information to be read, listened to and comprehended in an interesting manner. Nonetheless the use of technology in the classroom does not come without opportunities as well as challenges for the teachers who use them to support learning. The main aim of the research project throughout this source was to see the effect iPads as an eBook has on students and if it has any impact on their learning. Results showed that although the students participating in the study reported an increase in engagement when using the iPad, there was not a corresponding rise in achievement. It was also seen that at times it served as a distracter and it also frustrated attempts to engage the students in “offline” discussion, suggesting there are strong implications for pedagogy. This source allows teachers to be prepared for any problems they may encounter when using iPads in the classroom as well as being able to relate to the other teachers that had mixed feelings.

 

Teaching strategies that can be implemented in the classroom with the use of iPads include having students use a range of applications that the teacher can download relating to any topic. For example when teaching Maths the teacher can resort to the range of application that teach students how to add and subtract in an engaging manner. Students can also use their iPads as an eBook and read and write about a range of books. This will ensure that all students are engaged and interacting with their work. Following on, as a form of assessment, the students can then read and write about the same book without the use of technology and have students discuss their experience with the rest of the class. Observing and recording how students respond is also an effective tool when assessing students.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

What Are The Habits Of Mind?

What Are The Habits Of Mind? | Professional Learning Facilitator | Scoop.it

"Habits of Mind are dispositions that are skillfully and mindfully employed by characteristically intelligent, successful people when they are confronted with problems, the solutions to which are not immediately apparent.  When we draw upon these mental resources, the results are more powerful, of higher quality, and of greater significance than if we fail to employ those habits."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 19, 2013 9:40 PM

The Habits of Mind come into play when you think about how to solve problems. They are not performed in isolation. When a problem arises you are drawn to the skills necessary to solve it. As teachers we may choose to use the Habits of Mind as we consider skills we want our students to learn and to use in the classroom. For more information on the habits (with a more thoughtful discussion on each of them) check out Chapter 2 of the book "Learning and Leading with the Habits of Mind" available on the ASCD website at http://www.ascd.org/publications/books/108008/chapters/describing-the-habits-of-mind.aspx.
