Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings

Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings | school library apps | Scoop.it
Recordium is a new iPad and iPhone for creating audio recordings. At first glance the app reminded me Sound Cloud. Like Sound Cloud, Recordium can be used to quickly create a spoken note or to record someone playing an instrument. Recordium can be used to trim the end or beginning of a recording. You can also snip out a middle portion of a recording and save it as a separate recording or trash it. Where Recordium gets interesting is in the annotation features. The app allows you to highlight and tag portions of your recordings. Your tags can even include pictures. Completed recordings can be shared to a number of services including Google Drive and Evernote.

the visual tag feature is cool

ThingLink: Design Engaging Learning Experiences | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | school library apps | Scoop.it

As an instructional technology facilitator my goal is to weave together digital tools to design engaging, interactive learning experiences that support all learners and encourage higher order thinking. Of course, in order to be useful for teachers, these learning experiences need to be aligned to standards, initiatives and hot edtech topics.

Game Based Learning for Information Literacy Instruction. - University of Huddersfield Repository

Game Based Learning for Information Literacy Instruction. - University of Huddersfield Repository | school library apps | Scoop.it

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

PowerPoint file and workshop handout from presentation made by Andrew Walsh on this topic in Oct. 2013. The handout, particularly, contains numerous valuable links and resources regarding the most current developments in this field. Very useful

 

From the session abstract:

 

"Games are ideally suited to the development of skills, often requiring players to problem- solve, plan, and critically consider strategies to win the game. These are core information literacy skills underlining their suitability for use in the development of information literacy skills we try to help our library users develop. Game based learning can be used in several aspects of information literacy instruction. These include introducing elements of play to encourage reflection on students’ learning; using digital and tabletop games to teach information literacy topics within more traditional information literacy instruction (such as the game SEEK!); and more in depth digital games that students interact with outside library teaching sessions.

 

"This session will cover some key ideas of game based learning and gamification and describe how these ideas may be used in information literacy instruction. It will include a range of examples, including those the presenter has implemented. These include an online library gamification project, Lemontree (http://library.hud.ac.uk/lemontree); and a range of non-digital information literacy games including SEEK!, a card game for improving search skills (http://eprints.hud.ac.uk/15377/). It will draw on experiences from workshops the presenter has facilitated, where librarians design and prototype their own information literacy games.

 

"The session attendees will learn how they may use games in information literacy instruction in their own institution and how they can create games either by themselves or in partnership with others."

Draw them in with gaming apps like these  and then show them how to use these skills for inquiry!

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, November 10, 2013 2:51 PM

I'm going to try out the SEEK game in my library. Planning to play with classes and follow up with discussion. Then, I'll have it as a free play choice available in our game area, along with chess and checkers.
