A Beginner’s Guide to Taking Great Video on Your Phone - The New York Times

A Beginner’s Guide to Taking Great Video on Your Phone - The New York Times | Tech Help for Teachers | Scoop.it
Not long ago, a filmmaker wouldn’t dream of shooting a movie on a phone because the quality was so inferior to what you could capture on pricier devices. But that’s changing. Consider this: The most recent project from the renowned American film director Steven Soderbergh, “Unsane,” was shot entirely on an iPhone.

Today, there are lots of reasons everyone from pro photographers to amateur shutterbugs are using phones to shoot video projects.

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom | Tech Help for Teachers | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, August 20, 2017 2:23 PM

Well, yes. But this suggests that somehow "society" is a nameless, faceless thing. Every human being is a part of society so how we encourage creativity, how we choose to be who we are, how we support those who are not the same as us and who add beauty to our lives makes a difference in how "society" influence what others think and do.

Get Free Kids' Coloring Pages Using Google Images | Tech Help for Teachers | Scoop.it
Psssst. Want to make your kid think you’re a sorcerer? I’ve got a trick.

First, you will need a magical machine called a printer. Then when the child is near your computer, ask, “Hey, what would you like to color right now? It can be anything. Your favorite character? Spain during the Cold War? A hot dog?” Your kid might respond with skepticism, but tell him to trust you. Then do a Google image search of his selection, and under Tools, click “Type,” and select “Line drawing.” Choose a high-resolution image, print it out, and hand it to your child with some crayons.

This is interesting! But it's good to add the usage rights -- Non-commercial with reuse or modifications and then try it. And also, maybe be ready for maybe inappropriate stuff to show up - or make sure SAFE SEARCH FILTER is on -- because you know! A search for hotdog could possibly bring up stuff + fandom drawings can be racy.

I love the poster that opens this article and it will look very familiar to those of you who know the Future Ready Librarian framework. These 8 elements also fits nicely with the updated AASL Standards so it's perfect for your library classroom. I think this would be a good starting point for a conversation with your principal or school administration if the topic of a library renovation or update comes up. How you design the space for a digital classroom vs. an analog classroom will be a very different process. What aspects of your library should remain brick-and-mortar and which ones can become purely digital? Read on.
