Lou Salza's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:16 PM

"If you like to use your iPhone, iPad or laptop in your classroom because it allows you to effortlessly navigate the learning space, one of the greatest frustrations can be having to constrain yourself to the vicinity of the projector cable every time you want to share your screen with the class.

I have seen this as a common practice even in open plan learning environments, which instantly does away with it’s greatest feature by forcing the teacher to move back to the front of the room.

Whilst you can get wireless projectors at great expense, have you ever thought of using Apple’s $99 Apple TV? I hadn’t until recently, but since using it I could never go back to a physical projector/tv connection for the following 4 reasons:..."

I don't think that facebook users or advertisers are going to be going anywhere any time soon.  Yet, I do agree that LinkedIn is doing some great things to keep people engaged in their online ecosystem.

Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Blogging

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, March 1, 2013 10:05 AM

Realize that students may not consider blogging because they don't know anything about it. This stuff is not taught in most North American schools. I recall speaking to a group of grade 12s and someone asked me what a blog was.

Vance Stevens's curator insight, March 2, 2013 8:22 AM

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Using IT in the MDHS Classroom | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

Reflector in the Classroom

show iDevices from the students onto the classroom screen without using Apple TV

Craig Sugden's insight:

Reflector in the Classroom

Learning Connections (LC) Program Manager Anita Drossis recently visited LC District Champion Near North District School Board and found out about an amazing application they are using in the classroom that uses Airplay without an AppleTV.

Reflector can be loaded on to your MAC or PC and allows iDevices and newer MACs to send Airplay to that computer.

Near North teachers regularly use the app in math, design and tech classes for students to share items from their iPads.

Reflector works in three simple steps:

Install and run the reflector app on your MAC or PC that is connected to a projector Connect an iDevice to the same wireless network Use Airplay mirror on this iDevice - iDevice now displays onto the MAC or PC with Reflector

Thank you for sharing Near North!
