Graphing Stories - 15 seconds at a time

Graphing Stories - 15 seconds at a time | technologies |
Graphing Stories: Short video stories that help students learn to graph on a plane.
John Dalziel's insight:

Graphing Story is a maths project by Dan Meyer.
It’s a simple concept which asks learners to take a video of an everyday event (e.g. weight-lifting) and create a simple graph. The idea is to show the relationship between time and the event. Everything can be graphed, and their grasp of graphs grows better when they understand the event (or vice-versa).
Some of these may seem obvious, but scratch below the surface and practitioners will see how real-world events can trigger their learners curiosity and, from the learners viewpoint, make learning more interesting.

Shoo Rayner - learn to draw better - YouTube

Shoo Rayner - learn to draw better - YouTube | technologies |
Everyone can draw. Anyone can learn to draw better. Forget about art. Drawing is a language that helps you communicate with others. Get some paper, make some...
John Dalziel's insight:

ShooRayner Drawing is YouTube channel that provides a variety of instructional videos to help learners and children (and anyone else interested in drawing) learn to draw better.
The videos are created by artist and children’s book author and illustrator Shoo Rayner.
Practitioners could probably use these videos with your own learners, especially with a flipped learning model, to teach them how to draw different things.
Most importantly, the videos provide younger learners a very solid starting basis into the concept of drawing which will, once mastered, enable them to create gorgeous drawings of anything they want.
There is also a section for artists and advanced creators where Rayner shares interesting pieces of advice about drawing and being a creative person.
