5 Ways for Students to Create Audio Slideshows | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Somewhere between a PowerPoint presentation and a full-fledged video is the audio slideshow. Creating audio slideshows can be a good way to add meaning to slides that otherwise might not mean much without a presenter. Here are some ways that students can create audio slideshows.

Five Free iPad Apps for Creating Video Lessons (AKA Flipped Classroom Lessons)

Five Free iPad Apps for Creating Video Lessons (AKA Flipped Classroom Lessons) | Serious Play | Scoop.it

One of the things that I'm often asked about is creating explanatory videos on the iPad. Whether you want to create these videos for students to watch as part of a "flipped curriculum" or you want students to create the explanatory videos to demonstrate what they know, these apps are good choices for reaching those ends.

8 Myths About Digital Learning


Myth #1: Students and teachers can find everything they need online
Myth #2: Digital learning is non-linear
Myth #3: The digital classroom is a playground
Myth #4: Digital learning is interactive
Myth #5: Digital learning is collaborative
Myth #6: Digital learning is creative
Myth #7: Digital learning develops problem-solving
Myth #8: The role of the teacher in a digital classroom is new and different

 

Each of these statements is a talking point or selling point for the expansion of digital tools in the classroom, especially 1:1 tools. Each is also an untrue generalization about digital learning - a modern myth.

This does not, of course, invalidate the concept of digital learning (...). My purpose is simply to remind educators to proceed with purpose. By questioning the validity of each of these statements as part of the on-going self-assessment of teaching strategies, teachers can improve their use of 1:1 digital tools. 

 

For the sake of simplicity, my discussion will focus on the iPad and internet tools, but the points apply to all tools that create a 1:1 learning environment that matches one student with one digital tool.

Mobile Learning: 50+ Resources & Tips : Teacher Reboot Camp

"I believe mobile devices will transform education. This is why I created a free ebook, Effective Mobile Learning: 50+ Quick Tips & Resources with helpful tips and several resources to help support this trend. One reason is because mobile devices are designed in a way that forces the teacher to give control to the learner. When we equip a classroom with iPads, iPods, small tablets, or cellphones the learning is literally put in the hands of the students. The teacher has to facilitate and walk around the room to manage the learning. Below are a list of 50+ Mobile Learning resources & growing! I hope this will help any educator new to integrating mobile devices with the knowledge they need to be successful! Feel free to pass these resources around and use them with your staff."

Create Digital Learning Content By Easily Combining Parts of One or More Videos with Images, Text, and Audio Using MettaWhat Is Metta?

Metta (www.metta.io) is a digital storytelling tool that allows you to create lessons using audio, videos, and images from your computer or from the web. It is a great online app for creating short flipped or blended lessons for students to help them learn outside of the classroom.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"Metta helps turning stories into short movies out of pictures, videos, text and sounds that are already published on the web. Polls and quizzes can also be embedded anywhere inside a video presentation to get controlled responses from viewers."
