5 Apps for Making Movies on Mobile Devices - Edutopia

5 Apps for Making Movies on Mobile Devices - Edutopia | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

"Every year at Hollywood award shows, we see fantastic movies celebrated for their rich storytelling and dynamic performances. Your students can become moviemakers, too, thanks to some powerful apps for mobile devices. With these tools, your children can take videos and edit their work to make professional quality movies using iOS devices (iPads and iPhones) and Android tablets."

Lou Salza's curator insight, March 5, 5:27 AM

Those of us who work with students who have print challenges can offer opportunities to tell their stories without the delays of language processing commonly associated with dyslexia. Once students are using the video technology, they can incorporate storyboards and scripts to advance and integrate language skills. --Lou

 

Excerpt: "....Your students can become moviemakers, too, thanks to some powerful apps for mobile devices. With these tools, your children can take videos and edit their work to make professional quality movies using iOS devices (iPads and iPhones) and Android tablets.

One good thing about this easy-to-use technology is that students can still use important English language arts skills like writing a narrative, planning a sequential story, and including key details when getting ready to make a movie. These apps can enhance the work that you are doing with children in the classroom and give them room to be creative storytellers...."

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

Educators Need to be 21st Century Learners Too… | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.

Ebooks v paper - FT.com | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

Yet research has already told us a lot about how we read now. First and foremost, it emphasises that even using paper, there are many different approaches. Most of us probably have a settled style: you might be a skimmer, a skipper, a front-to-back completist, a keeper of the pristine page or an obsessive writer of marginalia. Whatever the case, our habits have probably been created largely as combination of childhood experience and how the medium we read in is nudging us.

Definitely worth reading this article. I have heard many teachers proclaim that reading a "book" is more beneficial than an ereader, etc. I have not necessarily bekieved what they say, but the evidence is just not there yet, however it is beginning to come and my own anecdotal evidence seems to resonate with what is being stated here.

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Rethinking how Teachers Teach and Students Learn | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.
