Dial up the Dynamics: Learning Out Loud: Make Online Courses Meaningful and Accessible

Dial up the Dynamics: Learning Out Loud: Make Online Courses Meaningful and Accessible | web learning | Scoop.it
Developing critical listening and speaking skills is an essential element of a student's higher-education experience. However, verbally presenting one's ideas and listening to contributions made by student peers are not typical experiences for online students, as most activities in online classes consist of reading and writing. As online course offerings increase, institutions have an obligation to ensure faculty are empowered to teach with tools that enable students to learn out loud. These tools and the content created with them must be accessible to all learners, including those who are hard of hearing and have vision impairments.

Online teachers who use audio and video to connect with their students get better results. Asking your students to use audio and video tools to express their understanding dials up the dynamics of online teaching. Don't let accessibility concerns stop you! Go for it.

Common Sense Media Review: Flipgrid

Common Sense Media Review: Flipgrid | web learning | Scoop.it
Flipgrid is a website that allows teachers to create grids of short discussion-style questions that students respond to through recorded videos. You can create up to four grids with a Flipgrid account. Grids can be classes, sections, groups of students, research groups, faculty groups, or any collection of users interested in a common strand of questions. Each grid can hold an unlimited number of questions, and each question can hold an unlimited number of responses. Questions are short, text-based prompts (think Twitter) that can include basic formatting (such as bold, italic) and links to websites or documents.

I've always been an early adopter of teaching technologies.  This one is tempting indeed. This review looks at Flipgrid for use in Grades 6-12.    I can see it working at a graduate level. 

 

To risk a cliche: "The proof is in the pudding..."   You won't really know unless you try it.

Lots of potential for online classes with this tool.

Un manera de subir presentaciones, escribir texto y que una voz profesional de voz a texto grabe la presentación. La cuenta libre permite hasta 15 slides por presentación. Me parece, interesante. Lo comparto.
