6 Studies Showing iPads Improve Learning | Teaching Techie Teens | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers who are fighting for stronger tech integration in their schools often come against opposition from people who believe technology not have a positive effect on student learning. This is particularly true with iPads, devices that many people see as a device for content consumption, not creation. Below is a list of studies into iPads and learning, with dot points about what students the study relates to, the subjects involved and the results.

Early Signs of Autism in Toddlers, Infants and Babies - free dowload of ebook

Early Signs of Autism in Toddlers, Infants and Babies - free dowload of ebook | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

http://www.amazon.com/Early-Autism-Toddlers-Infants-Babies-ebook/dp/B00I5ETPWM

Since the brain and behaviors are forming at a rapid rate during the early years of life, early intervention can be helpful not only for the child but for parents that are in need of information about autism and sensory functioning.

This book is not intended to replace medical advice but instead is meant to help parents decide if they should seek a professional evaluation along with Leslie's personal story of how she came to get her two children's diagnosis.

April is Autism Awareness month and we wanted to give this book away FREE for 3 days between the 9th and the 11th of April.

It is available as a kindle download at http://www.amazon.com/Early-Autism-Toddlers-Infants-Babies-ebook/dp/B00I5ETPWM

CrazyTalk7 Pro: Create Stellar Animations On Your Mac | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

WHY WE LOVE IT

We know making your dog talk with your own voice is entertaining and will get everyone laughing hysterically. With CrazyTalk 7 Pro you can take pets, sketch drawings, baby photos or inanimate objects to create fun and interesting videos in minutes.

You can communicate in a fresh way with visual messages, animated holiday greetings, or lively presentations that grab everyone’s attention. Upload your creation to the CrazyTalk app to share and animate on popular iDevices.

 

THE PROOF

“Thank goodness CrazyTalk for Mac has been released. Now I don’t have to restart my mac into bootcamp. CrazyTalk has been the best tool for Facial animation on Jimmy Kimmel live for years for the simple reason: the script can always change at the last minute. CrazyTalk keeps up!” – Jesse Griffith, Animator – Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABCTelevision Group

“I LOVE the new CrazyTalk for Mac! It has finally arrived on the right platform for creatives to explore the boundaries of their imagination. CrazyTalk7 is an elegant and sophisticated facial animation app that will quickly become the secret weapon of animators and storytellers. Finally after a LONG wait CrazyTalk is available for the Mac!” – Eric Rosner, Illustrator

 

 

THE GOODS

CrazyTalk7 is the most popular facial animation tool that uses sound and text to vividly animate facial images.

With this groundbreaking Auto Motion technology, you just need to import images, specify the facial feature points and record your own voice to automatically generate lip-syncs to create 3D life-like, talking videos.

Jordan Funke's curator insight, March 5, 10:38 PM

This computer animation program not only looks like a whole lot of fun, but it would serve as an excellent tool for helping integrate the Design and Technology Curriculum with many Key Learning Areas within the classroom. For example, students may be required to write a report about a particular historical figure for History, or an inventor for Science. Instead of delivering this as an old-fashioned Word document, students could input their report into CrazyTalk and specifically design a character to look like their figure, who would then be able to recite the child's speech for the whole class. Using this program (or indeed any similar voice/animation software or app) would provide students with an opportunity to practise creative thinking skills as well as critical design experience, as they would have to manipulate the character's appearance, sound and so forth to meet the brief for their task.

Introducing Prism, Hot Literacy Tool for the Common Core ~ November Learning News

Introducing Prism, Hot Literacy Tool for the Common Core ~ November Learning News | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"The November Learning team is excited to share a hot new literacy tool, introduced to us by a brilliant teacher, Laura Robertson, from The St. Anne's Belfield Studio School in Virginia. This intuitive and multi-functional digital literacy tool can transform the way

 

 teachers approach close reading with their students, while sparking lively text-based discussions. Prism is a tool for "crowdsourcing interpretation." Students are invited to provide an interpretation of a text by highlighting words according to different themes or categories. Each individual interpretation then contributes to the generation of a visualization which demonstrates the combined interpretation of all the users. Prism helps to reveal patterns that exist in the subjective experience of reading a text and can serve as the launching pad for any number of common-core aligned activities, projects and learning experiences."

Sample Student's curator insight, April 16, 6:11 PM

What a fantastic tool. Text analysis is really important and committing one-self safely to this analysis is often problematic. Prism has the potential to support equity, engagement and involvement in text analysis as a collaborative tool. Perhaps it could be coupled with an individual and private activity, followed by the Prism highlighting activity. The individual would then be able to compare their responses with those of others and re-examine their decisions. Beyond this though, it links really well with the "Why did you say that" thinking routine. As a collaborative followup, two ideas occur to me - the first is simply to ask individuals to explain their actions and reasoning. The second is for individuals to explain why others might have made decisions different to their own, followed by interaction between partners, enhancing the complexity of the thinking around certain points.

I really love this. And it is suitable for any age and type of text.

edutopia.org – International educator Scot Hoffman is a big believer in the power of curiosity to drive learning. After nearly two decades of teaching around the globe, he also realizes that school isn’t always so hospitable to inquiring minds. (As Einstein said, “It’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”) That’s why Hoffman has developed The Curiosity Project, a self-directed learning experience that engages students, parents, and teachers as collaborators in inquiry.
