A 4-Step Guide To Effective Lesson Planning - Edudemic

A 4-Step Guide To Effective Lesson Planning - Edudemic | Teach better | Scoop.it
Building lesson plans is an integral part of every teacher’s day. Integrating technology into lessons (that may have previously existed in a totally non-technology infused version) can sometimes be difficult, especially if the task at hand can be easily completed without technology – many of us wonder why bother if we don’t have to. While …

Check out this 4-step guide to creating effective lessons that integrate technology.

Step 1 - What level of learning is being addressed? The infographic looks at Bloom's, but you could use other resources as you design your lesson plan.

Step 2 - What level of technology will be used? SAMR (as in Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) are shown in the infographic, but there are other ways to look at the level of technology.

Step 3 - How should your classroom look? Four choices are provided.

Step 4 - How will you evaluate your students? Ten ideas are listed. You may find additional ones that you prefer to use.

As an initial framework to consider working with this visual may be a great tool, especially for folks who are still at the beginning phase of integrating technology into lessons.

Spell Up. Speak to play and build up your English. | Teach better | Scoop.it

This is a great new game from Google which helps students develop their vocabulary through spelling and pronunciation. Using Chrome, students can actually speak to the computer and listen to the pronunciation of the words as they build a word tower. They can even listen to a speaking dictionary telling them what the words mean. This should get your students working autonomously to develop their own vocabulary and if they sign in they can track and share their results.

Create simple animations in the same way as GoAnimate. You need to creater an account but you can embed the code in other platforms.

 

Limited by way of animation design but a nice way of having students present their ideas in a different way.

3 Edtech Tools You Can Use To Gamify Your Classroom | Teach better | Scoop.it
Gamification is one of the buzzwords in education right now, and for a good reason: Gamification is empowering, exciting, and under the right circumstances can be the disruptive innovator many teachers desperately need in order to change the dynamics between knowledge and the learner.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 4, 2014 10:52 PM

As schools are coming to the end of the year in my part of the world, many of us will begin to think about changes we might make next year in our classroom...and chances are for some that will include the concept of gamification.

This post from Edudemic provides descriptions of three edtech tools that may help you in this process.

* Socrative is a free program that allows you to create questions and students may answer using a wide variety of platforms.

* Kahoot is also a response system, but is designed gaming mechanics to provide motivation and engagement. There are many unique features to this tool and it worth checking out their website at https://getkahoot.com/

* FlipQuiz is similar to Jeopardy. It "makes it easy to design game-show style activities in the classroom that transform learning into an engaging and entertaining experience."

The post includes an introductory video for each tool.

Brainrush have just added a "bucket" template to their list of quiz generators (now numbering two).

 

You can have 2 (or more) labeled buckets. Players drag and drop text, image and/or audio into the correct bucket.

 

Super for categorisation tasks eg food groups, rock types or parts of speech etc. Lots of Science opportunities and I bet some MFL ones too.
