This is a creative way to present. The visuals have to enhance the presentation.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, December 21, 2014 4:11 AM

Una guida pubblicata su Slideshare per realizzare presentazioni PechaKucha, uno stile originario del Giappone per realizzare presentazioni, che utilizza alcune semplici regole illustrate nelle 36 slides della presentazione che ho trovato nel canale di Paul Gordon Brown.

 

Si tratta di un interessante stile comunicativo cui ispirarsi per cercare di uscire dalla monotonia della maggior parte delle presentazioni. 

Riassumo qui alcune delle regole: 

# 20 slides mostrate per 20 secondi ciascuna per un totale di 6 minuti e 40 secondi;

# le immagini avanzano automaticament;

# le PKN o PechaKucha Nights sono incontri creativi in cui si condividono idee, lavori, pensieri utilizzando presentazioni in stile PechaKucha

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom

Delivering Differentiated Instruction in Your Classroom | Education | Scoop.it

Carol Ann Tomlinson, author of “The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners,” is the country’s preeminent scholar on differentiated instruction. Tomlinson defines differentiated learning as “ensuring that what a student learns, how he/she learns it, and how the student demonstrates what he/she has learned is a match for that student’s readiness level, interests, and preferred mode of learning.” She likens the reluctance to integrate modern knowledge of the learning process into the classroom to settling for a Model T instead of embracing 21st-century engineering.

Tomlinson is one of the contributors to ED 262 content

Audrey's curator insight, November 12, 2014 3:20 PM

Differentiation works when students take responsibility for their own learning.  Students in particular those doing A levels are given booklets, notes, presentations and textbooks with lesson plans and schemes of work.  When a teacher walks into the classroom students should not be sitting waiting for the teacher to tell them what to do.  They should already be engaged in looking over their own notes and ready to ask the teacher questions about aspects of the course that they are not certain of. Or ready to ask where they can get more information.

 

Most students have I-pads, mobile phones that can access the whole web.  They can look for information on youtube for most subjects which can add to their learning.  Differentiation has never been easier.  The teacher's job is to give out the resources, point students to where to find information, give overviews of the lessons based on the syllabus, which he students also have.  During class, time should be spent  understanding the information, discussions,  showing how to answer exam questions, followed by essays.  This is 21st Century learning and it works!

 

Have a look at http://www.hotmoodle.com  a website for psychology .

These videos focus on Grades 1 to 6.  Accessibility, differentiation, and solid lesson designs all meet under the banner of UDL. 


Lots to apply to the face to face, blended and fully online K-12 classroom.

Educators Need to be 21st Century Learners Too… | Education | Scoop.it

We expect our children to develop these skills. We integrate these skills in our every day lessons so that our students can grow and expand their knowledge. We create spaces so that our students can create and collaborate, whether it is a physical space or a virtual space. We expect our students to be good digital citizens, using devices, programs, and tools responsibly. We want our students to ask questions and explore for answers. We expect our students to learn, grow, and then reflect on that learning.

Redefining learning with iPads - Innovate My School | Education | Scoop.it
The fatal mistake schools make when deploying mobile technology is thinking that by purchasing the hardware, that’s the hard part done. In fact, the easiest step in a school’s iPad journey is buying the technology; the successful use of the technology is determined by what schools do after this.

Does Tech Hold Back Educators?

Does Tech Hold Back Educators? | Education | Scoop.it

Teaching is not easy. It is a profession that requires educators to be relevant. Being relevant doesn’t come with age. Just the opposite occurs, and it requires work to keep up. Teaching is not a profession that enables one to stop learning after the degree is earned and the job is secured. Technology is moving us all too fast for anyone to sit back relying on old methods and tools.
