2014-2015 editable A3 Sch Calendar .doc .pdf .jpg | What's New on Shambles.NET | Scoop.it

Editable A3 school calendar for the next academic year [northern hemisphere]  ... 2014 - 2015 as a word document.

Also available as .pdf and .jpg files ... but I suspect the editable Word version will be the most useful.

This is designed to be printed out on A3 paper or card ... for your desk or wall

Shamblesguru's insight:

I produce this template every year using Word on my Windows or Mac laptops ... hope it saves you some time.

I've never tried to edit this using the iPad App as am not subscribed to Office365 ... if you have tried then please let us kow how you got on ... is it 'do-able'?

Knowmia : free iPad App

Knowmia : free iPad App | What's New on Shambles.NET | Scoop.it

Knowmia Teach is a new free lesson planning and recording tool for teachers and their students. It helps you create short video lessons on any subject and publish them on Knowmia.com so students, other teachers and the public can find them.


Knowmia Teach makes it easy to bring in visual aids from multiple sources, organize them in steps (like slides in a presentation) and use your own voice and fingers to bring your lesson to life.

You can design each step in the lesson, record illustrations as you draw them, and create sophisticated animation sequences with a simple stroke of a finger.

We also give you the ability to describe your lesson in a way that makes it simple for anyone who is interested in the subject to find your video. 

Shamblesguru's insight:

The link here takes you to the Shambles flipped video tools area where Knowmia is listed

 

Other uses for Knowmia could be ... screencasting and digital storytelling.

 

Teachers in over 10,000 schools are already using this ... but for me the real power is when it is used by students themselves to author their own work.

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad | What's New on Shambles.NET | Scoop.it

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.

This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

Shamblesguru's insight:

This is a BRILLIANT screencast by Rachel Smith ... I'm envious and plan to learn this skill as soon as possible.

Please also visit the video on YouTube and read the comments ... apparently the version she used of "Brushes" is no longer available.

Adobe Captivate is a tool that will let us make lesson presentations, cool interactive activities and games, software how-tos, screen recordings, self-scoring quizzes (you can even set them up to post the grades automatically to an LMS), and more.

Videonotes : video annotation

VideoNotes allows you to load a YouTube video on the left side of your screen and on the right side of the screen VideoNotes gives you a notepad to type on. 
VideoNotes integrates with your Google Drive account. By integrating with Google Drive VideoNotes allows you to share your notes and collaborate on your notes just as you can do with a Google Document. 

It’s as simple as this: sign in with a Google account (VideoNotes uses Google Drive for storage) and then paste in the URL for a YouTube or Coursera video. Then as it plays you can start making notes on the right-hand side of the screen. 

Shamblesguru's insight:

The clever bit is that as you click on previous notes you’ve made, the video will jump to that point, making this a really useful tool for navigating documentaries, study guides and other long, involved videos.
