Six [totally awesome] Web Presentation Tools for Teachers at a Glance

Six [totally awesome] Web Presentation Tools for Teachers at a Glance | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Below, you will find a link to a table I’ve made that puts information about these sources into an “at a glance” format. You’ll be able to easily reference what the tool is, what it does, and how it could be used in the classroom. You will also get access to links for the actual websites so that you can sign up and start creating! Before you do that, though, I’ve also got links to some examples on the final page for your perusal. (Keep in mind that these are just samples, not Pulitzer or Golden Apple material.) It is my hope that my own hours of time narrowing the field of free web tools will help others in their teaching, and help some new surfers to get up on that wave. Try to learn and implement one new thing this year… even that is a huge accomplishment. Come on in, the water’s fine! At the live session, you even get me to come around, assist you, and personally answer your questions about how these contraptions work…

May I also add Present.Me that allows you to attach a video of yourself presenting to your powerpoint presentation. I use it to send to my class when I cannot be there for their lessons. Genuis.
Baiba Svenca's comment, August 3, 2012 12:01 PM
I agree Charlotte! Present.me is awesome, I use it too. And Prezi, and many more tools.... But that was the author's choice. I like the annotations and tips very much!

Great Free Web Sites for Teaching Election 2012 | NY Times Learning Network

Great Free Web Sites for Teaching Election 2012 | NY Times Learning Network | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

By Michael Gonchar

Description by Accomplished Teacher

 

"There are a number of free websites available to help teach students about this year's presidential election. The writer of this blog lists 13, including PenPal News Red Blue, which partners students with pen pals in different geographical regions, and the nonpartisan nonprofit ProCon.org, which details candidates positions without the spin. MTV's Fantasy Election also allows students to pick their "team" of candidates similar to fantasy football. "

Creativity Games - Brain Training for Creativity

Creativity Games - Brain Training for Creativity | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Description by Terry Eichholtz

 

"Creativity Games is a site that offers a weekly creativity game every Monday. There are also weekly challenges and resources offered. Although it seems to be aimed at an adult audience, I believe many of the ideas could be used with younger students as well. For example, I love the “New World Education Game” that was offered on August 20th. It challenges you to think of a new university course using the 4 words provided. As the “Strategy” paragraph states, our students are entering a new world with different technologies, and we need to come up with novel ideas for preparing them for this. I could see my gifted and talented students loving this idea, and many of the other activities on Creativity Games. This is a great tool for educators."

B Ritt Smetzer's curator insight, February 14, 2016 12:48 PM

This website was created by Ryan Chadwick, an IT teacher who has always been interested in how and why people learn the way they do. He loves to push himself and has come to realize that by having a creative mind he can do just that. He created this site to spread and develop creative thinking. The website gives the reader a step-by-step plan.  First you start with a weekly creative game that will challenge you to think in different ways.  Then you can check out their weekly learning resources and read up on many different topics, ideas and views.  Then you can take the weekly creativity challenge which challenges you to incorporate creativity into your everyday life.  This would be a fun weekly activity for a gifted learner or a teacher of the gifted.  It is very structured and involves stretching your brain in ways that you may never do on a daily basis. This site will inspire you to spread creativity, create new ideas and to just get those creative juices flowing. You may even choose to share your ideas and thoughts with friends, educators or other leaders in your community. I love the idea of this website and incorporating it into a classroom as a "brain break" activity would be extremely beneficial.

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

By Alec Couros

 

“… ten years ago, not one student in a hundred, nay, one in a thousand, could have produced videos like this. It’s a whole new skill, a vital and important skill, and one utterly necessary not simply from the perspective of creating but also of comprehending video communication today.” (Stephen Downes)

 

"If you follow my Twitter-stream, you know that I spend a lot of time viewing, collecting & sharing videos. In this post, I share ideas on certain types of videos that I’ve gathered and how educators might use related methods or styles to engage students in constructing and deconstructing media while becoming critical consumers and producers of digital media."

 

Couros provides a through description and video example of each type. Most helpful. -JL
