Snip(download it at mix.office.com/snip) is a screen capture and annotation tool that also includes a whiteboard. It makes it really easy to create instructional video ‘snips’ by writing or drawing on a screen shot or on the white board screen. The resulting video can be saved as an MP4, or you can get a link to it, email it, or embed it!

Angélica Potes's curator insight, March 12, 2017 3:04 PM
Here and now, new technological tools are appearing with the objective of providing people with different benefits including those with educational and academic purposes. A great alternative is the creation of videos in which students can shape and illustrate different topics putting into practice the various options that a different breed of computers like chromebooks offer. A tool like that permit students to go beyond in the development of their matters, interests, tasks and duties that the academy requires. Hence, by the part of teachers is a much more different way of grading students that is out from the traditional framework of rating students' work. Perhaps, it can be something more wasteful but it also can be something in which the teacher can assess and value in a better way the students' learning process.

5 Movement Strategies for Middle and High School Students

5 Movement Strategies for Middle and High School Students | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Research continues to confirm what many of us already know: Too much sitting comes with a barrage of negative health consequences. A sedentary lifestyle can contribute to obesity, a slower metabolism, fidgety behavior, trouble focusing…and the list goes on. Dr. Ali McManus, an associate professor of pediatric exercise physiology at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna, recommends children should stand up and move around every hour. Here are a few strategies to integrate more movement into lessons.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 21, 2015 8:56 PM

I chose this resource because I feel that empowering our student body to be leaders in curating an environment which encourages technology integration is valuable. Peers have tremendous influence on each other. Furthermore, the ultimate inspiration for a classroom practitioner are the students. If students are demonstrating a desire to be technologically savvy it will augment the use of technology in the classroom. Certainly, I have learned much about technological resources from my students. Forming a tech team such as the one described could foster professional growth within the teaching staff.   

Heather Harriso's curator insight, October 23, 2015 10:15 PM

This is a great example of teaching students to be leaders at a young age and working toward a good cause. Who better to select for a technology initiative than kids who don't know a world without technology.  Not only does this build the school culture beginning with the kids but it immediately impacts the culture with the instructors as well. 

Jennifer Colin's curator insight, October 24, 2015 1:43 PM

I love, love, LOVE this idea! What a creative and interactive way to get students excited about the acceleration of technology, and to change the culture of a school to be more technology-minded.  I will definitely be talking with our principal about the possibility of starting a SWAT (Students Working to Advance Technology) in our school!   The best part of this article is that it not only explains what benefits and skills can come about from a SWAT team, but also contains specific information needed to get started.  An application, along with sample activities and events, is the perfect way to get a SWAT team off the ground.  I want to start tomorrow!  :D

These different quiz resources will be very helpful in creating a lesson where a quiz can be used to either get an idea of what students already know or confirm that they have taken in what they have learnt.
Brittany Cavanough's curator insight, May 29, 2017 8:45 AM

This is such an easy way to remember the different web applications one can use in the classroom. I have personally used Kahoot and Quizlet and think its a great way to start a lesson, settle the students down while also getting them ready for learning. I have not heard of the other quizzing tools but might be able to apply them in my next practical assessment.

When Is The Last Time You Observed One of Your Peers?

When Is The Last Time You Observed One of Your Peers? | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of teacher leaders recently. As we were sharing our beliefs about learning, reading about some examples and discussing what it could and should look like everyone was excited and you could feel the passion in the room. Then, I asked the question that I knew would dampen the mood but was necessary to move forward- “When is the last time you observed one of your peers?” As expected (because this happens every time I ask this question), the room went silent as they looked around anxiously. They replied with a variety of responses: “never”, “it’s been a long time” or “we used to do that…”. One teacher shared about how she still relies on many strategies she learned from observing her amazing cooperating teacher 20 years ago. This is because observation is a powerful component of how we learn.

10 Most Engaging Uses of Tech Integration - InformED | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Educators know that “tech” is not synonymous with engagement. But how do we recognise an engaging use of edtech when we see it? Most of us hardly have enough time to fully integrate the tools we want into our curricula, so measuring the relative success of one method over another is usually out of the question. That’s where a little research can help.

Absolutely Nick.......the connection between the pen, arm and brain is being overtaken by the internet and that's not a good thing in my view. Teaching Geeks (and I'd like to think I am one....? as I suspect you are yourself) - are going to become absolutely essential to maintain a high level of human interaction and body brain cognition.  Not just the mouse, eyes and the fingers.
