8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development - te@chthought | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

"The idea here isn’t simply that educators can improve by connected through social networks–they already are doing that. Rather, that schools can decentralize the teacher training effort by cutting them loose and supporting their self-directed efforts through an array of resources. The purpose of this post, beyond clarifying some how social media-driven and self-directed teacher professional development might work, is to offer some (mostly) concrete ideas for actually getting started designing such a program in your school or district. We would love to hear any suggestions in the comments because, well, that’d be social of you."

Genius Hour and the 6 Essentials of Personalized Education

Genius Hour and the 6 Essentials of Personalized Education | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

by Nichole Carter

 

"Last year, my school rolled out iPads for every student, and with the transition to Common Core, it was the perfect time for a massive curriculum shakeup. I'm lucky that my department gave me ample time to start working on this process. Simultaneously, I started experimenting with Genius Hour for my 8th grade students. Genius Hour equated to one hour a week, or one class day, where I let the students become experts in anything they wanted. This allowed them to explore their passions, and I saw engagement like never before. All of these things coalesced into a different mindset for me as a teacher. I'm nowhere near a full personalized education model, but I'm keeping the student-centered approach in the forefront as I continue this process."

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:

Bring your teaching to life with animated videos to engage your students. Select from a bank of content or use your own. Could be great for reinforcing and inspiring. I might have to try one of these.

Ten Ideas To Move Classroom Technology Closer To Blended Learning ~ 21st Educational Technology and Learning

Ten Ideas To Move Classroom Technology Closer To Blended Learning ~ 21st Educational Technology and Learning | Web Tools for Education | Scoop.it

by Michael Gorman

 

"As we employ the 1 to 1 experience, we need to ask two important questions. Is the 1 to 1 and the device about using technology, or is it about a more meaningful and engaging learning experience? Spending a day online for individual research can be a wonderful simple integration of technology experience, but might not be a true blended learning opportunity. Asking students to research and then collaborate with each other online in a collective experience takes this integration and provides more of a blended experience.

"The blended learning experience allows technology and the online experience to breakdown the traditional classroom allowing important transformation. One might wonder where on the spectrum of simple integration to blending learning a possible learning activity might be. I would like to share a lens of ten ideas that educators may wish to look at as they reflect on their 1 to 1 activity and classroom learning experiences that use technology . Sometimes it is just a simple tweak to bring out the wonderful possibilities of blended learning. Please feel free to read my ideas below that might allow you to use classroom technology to bring out a richer and blended learning experience."

Thanks to Jim Lerman for sharing this resourceful post by Michael Gorman on the topic of "Blended Learning".  

 

Recently I was traveling to a school district in western Kansas, along with a group of awesome education minds, to provide professional development.  It was during the drive west a close friend of mine brought up the topic of "Blended Learning" and how she planned to provide insight and engagement on the topic for her session.  We all agreed that one would probably find 8 or more differing definitions out of a group of 10 educators.  I just wish I had this article to share with her prior to the session.  The article does a nice job of breaking down and explaining "Blended Learning".
