Yet another web tool to make it easy to share your presentation. I don't really see students using it but I can see myself using it with a presentation on the ipad. Upload presentation, start broadcasting and then access it with the laptop that is connected to the projector. Must try it soon!

I'm trying these 3 ios tools from qrayon.com out. AirSketch - lets you show what is on your ipad on your computer/projector. Good for math class. Inkflow lets you write and insert images and resize, etc and publish to the web or email. Vittles will let you record your voice while writing and displaying/annotating images so it makes a little video that could be shared online as well. Good idea for flipping. These are the free versions I'm trying out. I'm sure the paid would give more options.

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

Student Blogging: Creating a Rubric ~ Empathic Teacher

Student Blogging: Creating a Rubric ~ Empathic Teacher | Web Tools in Education | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Isgitt

 

"I’m ready to assess my students’ blogs from the first semester.  Does anyone else feel like the first time you assess any new assignment that you’re just trudging through murky molasses?  I’m so slow at the assessment piece right now.


"I’ve been looking around at student blogging rubrics as I try to decide which components a) I’ve actually taught and b) seem to represent my objectives for blogging as reader response.  I know that I should have had a rubric before we even started all of this, but I just jumped into the project with many unknowns.  


"I’ve learned that about the only way to force myself to do something new is to just start doing that thing before I have completely concrete plans.  My apologies to whichever group of students has to do the project first!...


"I’ve been trying to create a rubric, so I’ve been searching the web to see how other teachers are evaluating their student blogs.  Here are four that I like:"
