Digital Tools for Teachers: Creating Video Tutorials for a Flipped classroom

Digital Tools for Teachers: Creating Video Tutorials for a Flipped classroom | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it
"A Flipped Classroom is a teaching model which reverses traditional methods.  Instruction is delivered at home through interactive websites, teacher-created videos or content and moves the homework style learning to the classroom.


"Class time is used for creating tasks, exercises and problem solving while the teacher is present to assist and give immediate feedback whereas the homework is designated for learning content and students can form questions about what they have learnt to prepare for their next lesson. This allows the teacher more time to interact with the students."

Teaching With QR Codes

Teaching With QR Codes | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask?  Well, you know what barcodes are,  like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till?  The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information.  Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc.  To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device.  There are many available for free.  I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest.  Try it with the code above.  It should take you back to this blog."

Tackling Informational Text:Unlocking the Secrets of Complex Text ~ Educational Leadership

Tackling Informational Text:Unlocking the Secrets of Complex Text ~ Educational Leadership | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

by Mary Ehrenworth

 

"If you ever find yourself at a live baseball game with a dominant pitcher, you might experience one of those evenings in which you see no runs or even hits. Such games cause baseball enthusiasts to exult, and they drive the rest of the population into a torpid boredom. To the experienced "reader" of baseball, who is alert to what is happening on the field as well in the batter's box, a shutout game is full of intricacy and drama, crucial decisions, and debatable moments. To the novice baseball reader, it's a game in which nothing happens.

 

"We want students to be positioned to read complex nonfiction the way the expert reader of baseball reads the game—staying alert to the nuances and challenges of complex texts, to the reading work such texts demand, and to how they reward close reading (or whatever you want to call such alert, attentive reading). "Like any other art, craft, or sport, reading becomes more rewarding as we master its intricacies to higher degrees," writes Robert Scholes (1989, p. 18). Scholes suggests that texts release their secrets to those who come ready to see more."

The Language Of The Maker Movement: 38 Terms For Teachers

The Language Of The Maker Movement: 38 Terms For Teachers | Technology in K-12 Education | Scoop.it

"As the maker movement in culture moves from MacGyver jokes and what Noah did when Allie left him in The Notebook to something with a bit more academic and cognitive credibility, it has also begun to creep in to the education space.

 

As with any niche, there is specialized language–jargon–that may keep things murky for you. The 38 terms below by no means represent an exhaustive collection. (There are dozens of gadgets, circuit boards, and digital, robotic, and electrical wizardry we left on the cutting room flow.) But for most teachers in most circumstances, it should serve as a nice starting points."

Plotagon is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

 

Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a fantastic tool to get students writing dialogues and interactions. They can really see their scripts come alive and turn them into movies. The text to speech isn't great, but this still makes for motivating writing tasks for students.
