Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it

"Frog Dissection for iPad is an app that is popular with biology teachers. The latest version of the app includes more labels, quizzes, and videos. Of course, the main purpose of the app still remains. That purpose is to provide a virtual environment in which students can dissect a frog just as they would if they had a frog and a scalpel in your classroom. The app provides step-by-step directions for students to follow as they virtually dissect their frogs."

What a great way to introduce dissection to students.

A cleaner way to learn about dissection.

Lee Hall's curator insight, May 24, 2013 2:11 PM

This would be good practice even if you are going to let them dissect an actual frog.

Custom Holograms - Dryden Art - Tricia Fuglestad @fuglefun

Custom Holograms - Dryden Art - Tricia Fuglestad @fuglefun | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it

A year ago I learned about using a smartphone to view holograms. The idea definitely interested me but it needed to be tweaked to work for my art room.


First, I needed the idea to work on iPads since that is what students have access to. Secondly, I wanted my students to be makers, not just consumers, so I needed a way for them to make their own hologram videos in the style of these examples.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

3D Printing in Early Childhood - Ms.Pana Says @PanaAsavavatana

3D Printing in Early Childhood - Ms.Pana Says @PanaAsavavatana | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it
Integration into the Kindergarten curriculum was a rather loose connection, but definitely a great introduction to 3D printing. One of the Kindergarten writing units revolves around “Looking Closely” at different things and writing about them like a scientist. Many of the Kindergarten teachers like to choose leaves as one of the objects students write about, so I decided to expand this idea into the design of a 3D printed leaf. To support students looking closely at small details as well as develop fine motor skills, each class worked together to make a blown up drawing of a leaf. In order to avoid having the whole class fighting over space to observe and draw around one piece of butcher paper, I set up the class so that I had three stations for the students to rotate around. The other two stations were a Bee Bot coding station and an Engineering Design challenge with Legos (design a bridge strong enough to hold a water bottle).

Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent

Know Students Better: 15 Tools for Formative Assessment @tonyvincent | The Eighth Floor | Scoop.it
When teachers know their students well, they can build strong connections that lead to better learning. Knowing students’ interests, strengths, and weaknesses help teachers tailor learning experiences for their students. Formative assessment is how teachers collect information about what students know, don’t know, and want to learn. Formative assessment takes many forms, including exit tickets, discussions, games, and quizzes. These kinds of informal assessments can also help teachers get to know their students as learners and as people.

There is a very wide variety of digital formative assessment tools that can be used for free (often charging for extra features). I’ve written a little about 15 of them below. Most of these tools work with any web browser, so they are great for laptops, computer labs, iPads, Chromebooks, tablets, and smartphones.

Richard Byrne shares several great ideas here that would work in every subject area. I love that Adobe Spark works well on Chromebooks, too. I'm using Page to create a new orientation presentation for 7th grade. It's so visually appealing, and I think the zoom feature will be a great way to highlight specific parts of the library.

 

Next year I'll have an opportunity to work with an 8th grade teacher who will teach both language arts and history. I already envision several projects where all three of the Spark tools will be useful!
