The 10 Best VR Apps for Classrooms Using Merge VR’s New Merge Cube | EdSurge News

The 10 Best VR Apps for Classrooms Using Merge VR’s New Merge Cube | EdSurge News | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Recently, the world of virtual reality was shaken up when the popular Merge Cube by Merge VR dropped in price from $15 to just a dollar at many Walmart stores. When using specific apps, these cubes showcase different experiences as you rotate the block around with your hands. If you haven’t held a Merge Cube yet, they're made of a soft rubber material that’s comparable to a stiffer stress ball. (If you want to test out the apps first, you can print out a temporary paper cube.)

DigitalVibes's curator insight, December 10, 2017 7:53 AM
¿Sabíais que el 60% de los padres no ayuda nunca a guiar a sus hijos en Internet ni en las redes sociales? Una encuesta reciente de Australian Psychology Society (Asociación Australiana de Psicología), ha mostrado este dato entre otros muy relevantes, estableciendo una comparación entre los usos de la tecnología entre adolescentes y adultos australianos. En ella se muestra la gran dependencia de la tecnología en la actualidad por parte de los adolescentes, pero también por gran parte de los adultos.

Además, explica cómo este uso masivo puede afectar directa y negativamente en el autoestima de los más jóvenes. Por ello, aporta soluciones en las que los padres adquieren un gran papel, ya que se aconseja que los mismos naveguen por Internet con sus propios hijos, descubran redes sociales juntos, les ayuden a tomar las decisiones correctas, etc., pero siempre actuando como "compañero" y no como supervisor. Así se aseguraría la seguridad en Internet.

Google Slides: Watch Students Collaborate with Grid View :: Alice Keeler

Google Slides: Watch Students Collaborate with Grid View :: Alice Keeler | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"I’m a huge fan of collaborative Google Slides. Why open 30 documents when you can open ONE! The steps are simple.

-Create a Google Slides.
-Name the slides.
-DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON THEM. Students will delete your slides. Don’t bother.
-Close the Slides.
-Share with edit access to the students. (You can do this in Google Classroom by choosing “Students can edit file” or before you close the slides use the blue share button to change to “anyone can edit.”
-Ask students to add a slide and put their name in the speaker notes.


"I try to use collaborative Google Slides or collaborative Google Sheets more often than I have students do individual documents. We become a community of learners and I only have ONE document to open and give feedback on rather than 30."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This appears to be an especially useful and productive learning strategy. Keeler describes how to do it in great detail.
