Owen Kim's curator insight, March 1, 2015 5:47 AM

This shows how social media affects the society such as in school classrooms and how it is important to have some life in social media. I feel that social media has become a big part in this world that social media can bring quite a number of positive impacts and how it can impact a community, or rather a class. I think social media's impact on societies and people will increase both positively and negatively and there is no sign of decrease in usage social media.

Robyn Harrison's curator insight, March 18, 2014 12:39 AM

Ceremonies are sacred events and we believe that the Spirit of God is present and active through these actions and prayers.  Ceremonies are celebrated in a way that respects both the Catholic tradition and Aboriginal culture – a coming together of two ways. These ceremonies call us to be strong and true in faith and culture.

You can use this free tool to create timed mutile choice quizzes based around one or more YouTube videos.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 4:12 PM

This is one of my favorite finds this month! You can create trivs (short videos) and then create timed-multiple choice quizzes to do with them. You can also create questions to go with YouTube videos. This would be a great instructional resource for classes with iPads or BYOD policies.

Video Toolbox: A Good iPad App for Blurring Student Faces (when needed) - Moving at the Speed of Creativity

Video Toolbox: A Good iPad App for Blurring Student Faces (when needed) - Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Technology and Religious Education | Scoop.it

"Despite our best efforts, sometimes a student who shouldn’t get photographed gets in a picture or video. If it’s a photo, in the past I’ve either deleted the picture or used the free iOS app “TouchBlur” to blur that student’s face if they were in a group shot. Here’s an example of a photo like that from my class last year, when students participated in a “cantilever span” building challenge idea I copied from Brian Crosby.

Today my wife realized a video she’d recently taken of students showing off the “Jitterbug Robots” they had built included a brief view of a “redshirt” student. The videos are SO great I didn’t want her to have to take the entire thing offline, so I searched and found five different iPad apps which are touted to support video blurring. Here’s the summary of what I found for these apps, along with my recommendations. "

Susan Berkowitz's curator insight, November 22, 2013 6:55 PM

Any tool that generates student interest in storytelling is wonderful.  The ability of the iPad to capture student interest and help them to create is its strength.  For students with autism and significant language learning disorders, use these tools to create books about themselves and their daily experiences that they can hear and see over and over again.  These types of story re-tellings are whst build language and competence.

That doesn’t mean you can’t take pictures directly from the lock screen on the iPad, you just have to use Siri to launch directly into the camera app from the lock screen instead:"
