Welcome to the School of You | Teachem

Welcome to the School of You | Teachem | Web_class | Scoop.it

Teachem is a new service that is using the TED Ed model of creating lessons based on video. On Teachem teachers can build courses that are composed of a series of videos hosted on YouTube. Teachers can write questions and comments in "flashcards" that are tied to specific parts of each video and display next to each video. Students can take notes while watching the videos using the Teachem SmartNote system.

You can create a sample course in Teachem to try it out, although you do have to create a free account. Note that students/participants also need a free account to write notes. Making a sample course is a straight-forward process of adding a video URL then typing out questions. When you create a Teachem course you can make it public or private. Public courses can be accessed by anyone that has the address for your course. Public courses are supposed to be discoverable on Teachem, but  finding any courses that you haven't created does not seem to be straightforward.

 

For comparison - note there are other similar tools - see scoop.it items on this page - Grockit answers and Vialogues.

 

Thanks to @richardbyrne for this resource from his blog Free Technology for Teachers http://www.freetech4teachers.com

 

My rating: 8/10

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 9, 2013 1:42 PM

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:04 AM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

Here’s a list of blogs that feed my teaching soul, hunger for knowledge, and need for deeper insights into teaching,  learning and writing. There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here,  so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom | Web_class | Scoop.it

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
