Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 2, 2013 10:06 PM

Do you want your students to have authentic writing experiences online that they may share with their classmates. Do your students blog? Do you blog? If you are not blogging with your class you should look at Kiddblog, a safe and simple location to set up blogs for your students. Kidblog has come out with 14 new features (based on user feedback). Accounts are free for students and you maintain control over every students' blog. Below are five of the new features.

* Are you a Google Apps school? If so you can sign up through Google and the student name and password will stay the same!

* Private comments - You may now leave a private comment for a student. That's right, no one else will be able to see it.

* "Comment for Me" - "Students now have a comment feed that displays all comments left for them across your entire Kidblog class community."

* Media Uploads - It is now easier to upload photos and videos.

* Student Dashboard - Students now have their own dashboard that provides stats about their posts and more.

An additional nine features are available if you click through to the site.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, June 29, 2:41 AM

This article makes Sense.  Isn't this what good relationships are based on?  Isn't this kind of thinking what builds a real community where a person belongs and can feel safe?  -Lon

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 29, 11:23 AM

True, true, and true. All effective teaching begins with the relational aspect. It is accurate to say that kids do not care how much you know until they know how much you care. It is a chiasmus, the switching of two words to make a memorable statement, and it is spot on!

Free Technology for Teachers: Create Stop Motion Animations with KomaKoma

Free Technology for Teachers: Create Stop Motion Animations with KomaKoma | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Stop Motion was one of the original video creation techniques. By stringing together a series of single images and displaying them quickly in order, film was born. Now on iPad, Stop Motion can be used as a technique for capturing learning as it happens, making drawings, models, science projects, or counting exercises come alive. Consider the power of creating a digital flipbook that could later be viewed as a video.

Introduction to KomaKoma
KomaKoma is a FREE Stop Motion iPad App that can compile together a series of photos taken in the app and then export them to the Camera Roll as a video. With a simple user interface consisting of only a few buttons, KomaKoma is very intuitive. The app launches the camera automatically (first time app users will have to allow the Camera access). A big red record button captures each image in sequence, and a big green play button plays the images back as a video. The only other 2 editing buttons are a blue “X” to delete the last image taken, and a yellow arrow for saving the video to the app’s Gallery.

NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition #byod #makered #makerspaces

NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition #byod #makered #makerspaces | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
What is on the five-year horizon for K-12 schools worldwide? Which trends and technologies will drive educational change? What are the challenges that we consider as solvable or difficult to overcome, and how can we strategize effective solutions? These questions and similar inquiries regarding technology adoption and transforming teaching and learning steered the collaborative research and discussions of a body of 56 experts to produce the NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition, in partnership with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). The NMC also gratefully acknowledges ISTE as a dissemination partner. The three key sections of this report — key trends, significant challenges, and important developments in educational technology — constitute a reference and straightforward technology planning guide for educators, school leaders, administrators, policymakers, and technologists. It is our hope that this research will help to inform the choices that institutions are making about technology to improve, support, or extend teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in K-12 education across the globe. View the wiki where the work was produced.

I've written several books to teach beginners of all ages how to code, and I know from experience that you don't need to consider yourself a techie or "good at math" to learn. In fact, kids often can learn to program faster than adults precisely because they don't know how "difficult" coding is supposed to be.
