If you re in the area, this is the biggest bang-for-the-buck in EdTech in Shanghai, considering it is a free beer or two. I very much enjoy going to these mini-events.

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students

A Chart Featuring Some of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Augmented reality is making some huge inroads in the field of education. More and more teachers are incorporating this relatively new technology in their classrooms. Augmented reality is also redefining the notion of learning by adding a layer of interactivity, engagement and vividness to students learning experiences. Teachers have been using augmented reality in many varied ways and across different school subjects, this post from Edutopia provides some good examples in this regard. The success of AR in education is attributed to the increasing availability of mobile apps designed specifically to help learners leverage the power of AR in their learning.  Below are some very good AR apps to try out with your students. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more to the list in the future. Enjoy

I like that it gives a comparison of behaviorism, cognitism and constructivism (even though we aren't looking at that school) and it also gives information about the teachers, learner and techniques, etc.

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation

How to Give an Emotionally Intelligent Presentation | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Emotions play an active role in almost all of our decision making. That's one reason why emotional intelligence, the ability to identify, understand, and manage those emotions, is such an invaluable skill. 

 

But how specifically does emotional intelligence help us with our daily tasks? Here are three tips to make sure your next presentation is emotionally intelligent:

1. Don't get anxious. Get excited.

All of us get nervous before a presentation, even if we've done it hundreds of times. So take that nervousness and turn it into something positive: enthusiasm.How do you do that exactly?

Spend those final few moments reviewing your favorite parts of the presentation. Remind yourself why you're doing this, and focus on the value you have to deliver to your listeners.

Now, take that enthusiasm and give a talk that you passionately believe in.
