How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

Great ideas and excellent modelling from Rachel. I like her suggestion that you can practise using Youtube or TED talks and create your charts as you follow along. Amazing. Thanks for scooping, Rod!

Twitter for Teaching and Research

Twitter for Teaching and Research | E-Learning and advancing teaching | Scoop.it

Objections to Twitter are usually along the lines of “What can you say in 140 characters?” “It’s all about celebrities and what they had for breakfast”; “it’s full of racist trolls”; “it’s a trivial medium – what could it possibly offer me, or teaching and learning?"

 

This is the image problem that Twitter has with a lot of academic staff – they just don’t see the point. I do sense a switch in this attitude though, as more and more academics start to use it, and they see their peers using it, and their students, and their institutions.

 

===> What they will find, once they dip their toes is that it is an incredibly useful medium for teaching, learning and research. <===

14 Technology Concepts Every Teacher should Know about | E-Learning and advancing teaching | Scoop.it

So you are coming across too many tech terms that it becomes hard for you to draw clear boundaries between what each of them refer to. Well we do share with you this confusion and that is why we deem it important to put forward a list of the major and most popular educational concepts that are technology-related.

 

The list below is a simple attempt to help you better capture the full picture of what all these tech terms are about by providing clear definitions to each one of them.

Some of these are unfamiliar to me as an Ed Tech Specialist.  I will do some investigating but "Know" (lowest level of Bloom's) may be the best we can expect from some of our classroom teachers.  They may, however, become experts on one or two of these concepts.  Whatever they choose.
