How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic

How Evernote Is Revolutionzing My Classroom - Edudemic | Tool Box | Scoop.it
The great Evernote experiment is underway in the UK. Adam Webster details how he went all-digital with the help of iPads and Evernote.

 

By Adam Webster

 

"From 8th January – 22nd March I chose one class, my First Year class (aged 11-12) to give up using exercise books, reading books and textbooks. Instead, they would use only digital mediums that were available to them through an iPad that they were supplied with during each lesson.

 

"We are now at the halfway point of this test, and I wanted to reflect a little on what I have found so far."

VoiceThread - About - Digital Library | Tool Box | Scoop.it

This post is about using Voicethread as a tool for students to practice their speaking skills and build speaking confidence. This technology is now available as an App. It is a useful tool for rehearsal. EAP students can rehearse their presentations and IELTS students their Part 2 speaking. They can play back, anaylse their performance and rerecord. The teacher and other members of the group can comment. You can use video and images. Many teachers have trialled Voicethread and feedback is students like it and are motivated to use it ;-)

SC teachers, if you are interested, let's explore together and we can trial in our classes.
