Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 3, 2013 8:46 PM

The graphic (above) provides a nice visual to help understand the difference between project based learning and traditional units with a final project. Where are the differences? Traditional units have lectures, activities, quizzes, a review, an exam the project. With project bases learning you begin with an event plus a rubric and then move through a series of activites that help students reach benchmarks. Project based learning is authentic learning.

More information on this can be found in the post.

Literably Is An Excellent Reading Site — If Used With Caution | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Literably "allows students to read a text and have it automatically assessed for accuracy and words-per-minute speed. Plus, and this is what was most surprising to me, it also provides a fairly accurate indentification of student errors — in other words, what word they said instead of the word in the text. You’re able to provide the student or parent a link to the recording. And it’s free."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 6, 2013 10:21 PM

Thanks for Larry Ferlazzo for sharing this website that allows teachers to choose reading and levels for students to read and saves their reading so you can come back and access it via a dashboard. You will need to register and set-up your student list.

Ferlazzo also discusses the cons of this. There is value in having one-on-one time with students when they read so you determine if they are "racing through words" or having other issues that may not be apparent through a recording.

None the less this may be a great tool for some of your students. Students do have the option of re-recording.

Yet there is still the issue that students are citing images without checking to see if they have the correct permissions to do so. Students (and teachers) need to be aware of copyright rules. Using resources like Flickr you will find many pictures but students need to learn how check to see if the image is under Creative Commons and accurately site the source.

Langwitch does an excellent job explaining a situtation that she experienced with her students and provides screenshots to help you understand what to look for. Teaching students how to cite resources is teaching our students media literacy.

Consider having your students create an image that they could put under Create Commons and have attibuted to them of others were to use it.

Whether it’s a particularly complicated mathematical equation, a wordy poem or a tough scientific process, teachers have been coming up with clever methods and workarounds to help them stick in students’ brains for centuries."

Videos are a great way to hook students on a subject...add music and chances are good that students will listen and watch. Here are ten videos in range of areas. Three are described below.

* The Presidential Election Process - Learn about the "US presidential election, from primaries to inauguration day, including the importance of media coverage and fundraising!"

* Learn the Continents - Help younger students learn “about the different continents, understanding the basic geography behind them and recognizing them on the map.”

* Parts of the Cell Rap - An animated rap where "the relevant part of the cell lights up and moves to illustrate the song as it goes along."

Additional videos explore quadratic equations, MacBeth, creating a graph from an equation, states and capitals, the element song, and the life and works of Shakespeare.
