A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Secondary Learning technology | Scoop.it

Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.

Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.  

Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.

 

Important ideas:

 

a) Storify has a great educational potential;

b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;

c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;

d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;

f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;

g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;

h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;

i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.

In this workshop, we will look together at some web and mobile applications and establish criteria by which we can evaluate them to ensure we use tools that will lead to enhanced language learning.

Anthony M Gesamondo III's curator insight, June 20, 2014 9:51 PM

I am a huge advocate for the use of "Game Based Learning." Judy Willis has done a great deal of Neuroscience studies advocating the use of game-type learning to increase dopamine release in the students' brains. The "video-game" model of learning is one I employ regularly. This site not only has apps that fit the video-game model, but other useful apps for teachers and parents, ranging from apps to help with disruptive students to closing the gender-gap in computer science. This is a great site.
