Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos | Technology in schools | Scoop.it

The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. Now, they’ve taken a step back and realized some things shouldn’t be in lecture form, and therefore shouldn’t be videos either. Instead, the two teachers have embraced what they call mastery learning, with an emphasis on students taking control of their own learning. Instructional videos are an optional part of a bigger move towards asynchronous learning.

11 Must Have iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

11 Must Have iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in schools | Scoop.it

"Today while I was lounging in Victoria Park, I took my iPad and started thumbing around through the apps I have. I was really surprised to find out that I have many apps installed but only some are being used on a regular basis. So it dawned on me to compile a list of some "must have" apps  that teachers should have access to. All of these apps are great for organizational tasks such as :  task management, bookmarking, note-taking...and media storage.

Tips to improve your searching technique

Nikolaus Wood's curator insight, May 24, 2013 11:26 AM

Personally I never use this model of search beyong spell checking. Using google to find a new interst seems rather broken to me, instead I prefer to find connections from what I am already interested in. Therefor having relivant searches rather than just extensions of the letters already typed would be more beneficial.
