The following example is a piece of work about simplifying algebraic fractions that illustrates the value of student explanations. The task was to make a video explaining how to simplify the three fractions below, complete with full explanations. No training was given on how to do this, and no apps were recommended.



This was my first attempt at asking this particular group of students to create a video. It follows that after years of simply writing down answers and them either being right or wrong, several students decided to assume that I was joking with this task and simply handed me in a copy of the answers. Job done. Or was it Wolfram Alpha’s job done?

Anyway, here is what a few responses to the task looked like

Rebecca Louise Melia's curator insight, April 9, 2015 6:32 PM

After researching their own life and milestones, students can create a list of significant events and then use this simple app to create a timeline of their lives. Timelines can be made using "before birth", and then each year of age so far. Creating a timeline can also be linked mathematics as it involves "sequencing events" (Mae-13MG) (Board of Studies, NSW, 2014).  

 

The finished timeline acts as a form of formative assessment, as it is a physical representation of their understanding of life events and their ability to use the technology. Students can be questioned about their work to assess their progress - In order to do this successfully students should be asked some closed questions, followed by open-ended questions, requiring some explanation (McMillan, 2011, p.118). Questions could include "What would come next on your timeline?" and "Do you think everyone would have the same timeline as you? Why?".

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | TecnoEducación | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:

Ik ben zelf eigenlijk helemaal niet zo handig in het ontwikkelen van content. Deze applicaties lijken echter gemakkelijk in gebruik.

Rob Overend's curator insight, October 26, 2014 5:20 PM

Bring your teaching to life with animated videos to engage your students. Select from a bank of content or use your own. Could be great for reinforcing and inspiring. I might have to try one of these.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, July 6, 2015 6:08 PM

There are some interesting ideas here. I'd like to learn how to make animation like these. Now I have some tools. I can also see some application for older children in learning.

So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.

This is the third post in a series of posts aimed at helping teachers and educators make the best out of Google Drive in classrooms. This series comes in a time when teachers are getting ready to start a new school year and hopefully will provide them with the necessary know-how to help them better integrate Google Drive in their teaching pedagogy. The two previous posts featured in this series were entitled consecutively "New Google Drive Cheat Sheet" and "Teachers Visual Guide to Google Drive Sharing". Today's post covers some interesting ideas and tips on how to go about using Google Drive in your classroom. This work is created by Sean Junkins from SeansDesk.

Explain Everything + Google Drive = Awesome - Mr. Losik | TecnoEducación | Scoop.it
I saw today via the Twitterverse that the whiteboard app Explain Everything  (iOS|Android) connects with Google Drive. I have primarily been a user of ShowMe when it comes to whiteboard apps but this might be the tipping point for me to move over to the EE side of the fence. Add in the fact that Explain Everything is also the only whiteboard app currently available on Android and it becomes even more attractive since I use devices on that platform as well.
