The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology Integration as a Learning Tool | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Are MOOCs and eLearning Just Fads?

Are MOOCs and eLearning Just Fads? | Technology Integration as a Learning Tool | Scoop.it

"The Massive Open Online Course, aka MOOC, is an online course designed for unlimited participation and open access via the web. MOOCs have made a mark because the history of learning has now changed. Anyone with an Internet connection can take MOOCs, at no cost, from a top university. MOOCs, just like eLearning and Virtual Training, show how the nature of learning - be it in the education sector or Learning and Development in the business world - is changing. But just like the principle of MOOCs, which some will dismiss as a fad, the principle of eLearning is that it’s cost effective, efficient and can deliver great results. It’s all a matter of how you use it."

Great reminder that no matter the obstacles, teachers can make a difference for their students! Effective teachers do not give up on their students or give in to the pressure of the "system."  Maintain high expectations that are individualized for students, collect data that can guide you in impacting student learning, turn parents into partners, share with colleagues, and build a cooperative team with the common goal of helping each child reach his or her potential.

"When it comes to crafting individualized instruction for your students, ExitTicket tops the class. Tested against other apps in its category, this app emerged as the fullest-featured piece of exit ticket software I’ve seen. Although indispensable for offering individualized instruction, it also offers the additional advantages of being aligned with national Common Core and Science Standards initiatives. After using it over the course of a week for lesson-planning and student assessment, I found that Exitticket’s features and continuity with educational standards create a seamless experience."

EDpuzzle Review: Easy-to-Use Tool Lets Teachers Quickly Turn Online Video into Lessons | Edudemic | Technology Integration as a Learning Tool | Scoop.it
There is a staggering amount of free video available online that makes great fodder for teaching students, particularly in flipped classroom settings. Instead of giving students YouTube links or telling them to search for a video on a particular subject, with EDpuzzle teachers can select videos, edit them down, assign them to students, and quiz them as they watch.

EDpuzzle is a very simple tool that walks teachers through the video lesson creation process, with only a few limitations. With this solution a teacher can make the most of the video assets he or she has access to, plus everything the Internet has to offer. It is also an easy enough experience that you can quickly create individualized video lessons for different students and their particular needs or areas of interest.

6 Ways to Promote an Engaged Learning Environment

6 Ways to Promote an Engaged Learning Environment | Technology Integration as a Learning Tool | Scoop.it

"There are a lot of myths surrounding the type of pedagogy and instructional strategies that promote knowledge building and higher order thinking in the classroom. In an engaging classroom, learning is messy. Students are engaged in inquiry processes that are meaningful to them, and socially constructing new knowledge bases that are also culturally relevant.


Despite the push for learning strategies that engage student, there still exists structures and cultures and frameworks that learning must be quiet, focused on the teacher as the main socializer of knowledge, and that worksheets and memorization, and compliance are necessary from students to achieve."
