How to Use Periscope for Education - PikeMallTech

How to Use Periscope for Education - PikeMallTech | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it

"Periscope, Twitter’s live video streaming app, is taking the education world by storm.  Since its debut in early 2015, teachers and administrators are trying to figure out how to use Periscope for education and not just as a way for students to stream silly human tricks on live video to their friends.

Before we can get into how to use Periscope for education, let’s first define what exactly Periscope is and how you use it for those of you that are clueless for now."

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
A 3D Printer is a manufacturing tool used to create three-dimensional artifacts that have been designed on a computer. 3D printers have a wide range of shapes, sizes, and types, but in essence they are all computer controlled additive manufacturing machines. Similar to how paper printers lay down ink in one layer to create an image, 3D printers lay down or cure material layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object.

3D printers have a huge range of applications; designers use them to test out product ideas, manufacturing companies use them to make complicated parts for assemblies, and makers use them for DIY fabrication for anything they can imagine. Although the different types and uses of 3D printers vary widely, all 3D printers can be simply described as tools; they allow people to make things that they weren't able to make before.

From this guide you will learn what 3D printers are, how they work, when they should be used, and how to design for them and use them. I'll also provide some resources on purchasing printers and 3D printing services. Once you're through it, hopefully you'll be able to print some things yourself!

Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides)

Teaching Kids to Code (EdSurge Guides) | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it

"Every era demands--and rewards--different skills.

 

In different times and different places, we have taught our children to grow vegetables, build a house, forge a sword or blow a delicate glass, bake bread, create a soufflé, write a story or shoot hoops.

 

Now we are teaching them to code.

 

We are teaching them to code, however, not so much as an end in itself but because our world has morphed: so many of the things we once did with elements such as fire and iron, or tools such as pencil and paper, are now wrought in code. We are teaching coding to help our kids craft their future."

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
n case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena. Any one who knows me will tell you that I am not one for using tech for tech’s sake, despite my evangelist moniker. Use of technology in a cross curricular sense should be measured and done with consideration for the best potential learning outcomes.

With all that said, I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I thought it time that I shared some of the Apps that have stuck by me or have struck me for their ease of use and impact upon learning in the classroom.

Dinky Diana Kay Smith's curator insight, August 20, 5:22 AM

Children are not inspired to learn by repeating the same processes over and over. Children develop an interest in a variety of subjects because of interest. This interest can lead to a better understanding. Of a topic of interest when they are asked to research or are inspired to research to learn more about something. By allowing a child to delve into a topic allows for greater understanding in the sense of accomplishment.

‘Minecraft in education is a way to teach, learn and inspire. It’s students visiting ancient civilizations to create and play out their own stories. It’s exploring mathematical concepts like perimeter, area, and volume by breaking and placing Minecraft blocks. It’s practising collaboration, problem solving, digital citizenship, and leadership skills through creative thinking and innovative design. Minecraft in education is teachers and students inspiring each other to change the way we learn.’

School may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean learning has to. In fact, it is vital that it doesn’t!

When students let their brains take a break over the summer, they can lose the equivalent of two months of their grade-level math and reading skills. To combat summer learning loss and keep those STEM skills fresh over the summer, Project Lead The Way put together a list of super simple (and fun) STEM activities you can do with your children over summer break.

This picture supposedly taken in Nepal of a brother protecting his younger sister due to recent earthquakes is, in fact, false.

Some times are real photos of someone or something going through tragedy, but often they are not.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.
