Touchcast is an app for creating video content which links to various web based and embedded resources and media. It enables the user to create a video commentary which guides the viewer through various websites and study resources and gives a commentary of what these resources contain. At the same time the user can add supporting images to their video to support understanding of what they are saying. Great for creating flipped learning.

Knowledge is equal parts contructivism (conceptual) and connectivism (social) and to the degree that communication can be broadened and enhanced to affect both at the same time, knowledge devlopment becomes more enabled. Touchcast is the kind of tech development that could have just such an effect in this arena.  Ya.. this could be... fantastic!

This looks very useful but for learning&teaching or production? Not sure - further investigation required. Also: anyone know how much this costs?

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Common Core | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

A deeper understanding and learning through technology

Good article with some great advice.

Sandy Owens's curator insight, November 18, 2015 8:03 PM

Integration is at its best when a child or a teacher doesn't stop to think that he or she is using a technology tool.

Common Core and Teacher Evaluation

Common Core and Teacher Evaluation | Common Core | Scoop.it

The new school year offers teachers an unprecedented opportunity to prepare their students for college and career and the real possibility of losing their jobs.

 

"The Common Core State Standards that have been adopted by 46 states are designed to help teachers create lessons plans that focus on standards that are fewer in number, higher in substance and clearer in content than those that existed before ("What Every Child Can Learn from Kentucky," Time, Sept. 30). I hope that teachers will regard them as targets rather than as straitjackets. If they are implemented properly, teachers will still be able to be as creative as ever."

While the style of teaching may be upping the standards, it can also be foreign to parents.

A School With No Teachers, Where Students Teach Themselves

“We don’t want to teach them stuff,” he says. “We want them to find solutions on problems, because we don’t know the problem in the future. So we are creating students able to learn by themselves.”

This sounds like a really great approach to school.

This is only for a certain age group.
