How to Make the Most of the World’s Top Photo Feeds in the Classroom | Edudemic

How to Make the Most of the World’s Top Photo Feeds in the Classroom | Edudemic | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“ From the smartphone Annie Leibovitzes to the Instagram Ansel Adams, it seems that everybody is a photographer these days. This is a fact teachers can and should take advantage of in the classroom – and for many reasons more than to expand the student photo repertoire beyond the selfie (though that is certainly an admirable goal). While a good lesson in photography itself is a fruitful place to start, digital photography can be a launching point for lessons in writing creatively, thinking critically, expanding the student worldview and building empathy that extends far outside the classroom. Let’s take a look at a few of the best photo sites out there today and discuss a number of ways you can make the most of them in your classroom.”

MindMup

MindMup | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.

Use the Impossible to Fail Quiz to Give Students Instant Remediation

Use the Impossible to Fail Quiz to Give Students Instant Remediation | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Does your gut (and your assessment) tell you some students didn't get it the first time you taught it? Would you like to give students remediation exclusively for concepts they don't understand? Isn’t it impossible to deliver precise remediation to each student in your classroom?"

The quiz is impossible to fail because it directs students to a review video when they incorrectly answer a question. Students then re-try the question. Every time they answer incorrectly, they are directed to the video. When students answer correctly, they move on to the next question.The quiz is meant as a opportunity for students to practice and receive remediation when needed. It is not meant to be an assessment tool. Each student will eventually choose the right answer to the questions.


Via C.Rathsack
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
There is a lot of talk about how failure helps learners to learn. This technique has the best of both worlds. Students can get an answer wrong but are then given another chance to try, and another, and another, if necessary. This makes them responsible for their learning but allows them to achieve success and to learn along the way.

How can I convert my handwritten notes into Word documents?

How can I convert my handwritten notes into Word documents? | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“Michael has a large pile of handwritten notepads that he would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents I have many A4 pads of handwritten notes, which I would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents.”
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
If you want to take notes by hand but also want to keep the notes digitally, be warned, you may have limited success with OCR software. One Note, my favourite piece of Microsoft software, seems to be the best option to creating digitised, handwritten notes. Kinda defeats the purpose of toting that Moleskin around though.
