Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014

Using iMovie App in Physical Education Lessons - November 2014 | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it

This month I have been supporting the PE department with using the iPads to enhance their lessons and pupils to analyse skills. Last year Apple updated iMovie app to include features such as Split Screen, Freeze Frame, Video Speed etc. This year the update has made some of these features a little easier to find.

 

Split Screen: We have used this to compare videos of the same skill taken from two different angles. For example, a cricket bowling action.

 

Video Speed: We have used this by splitting part of a clip where the skill is most demonstrated and slowing it down.

 

Freeze Frame: We can stop a clip at any point and create a freeze frame. This freeze frame can be split at either end to create a separate clip and textual analysis added.

 

I would also like to say a big thank you for all the great feedback to the iPad Teachers App. We are only at the start of the content we can add to this so look out for the first update in mid December with even more ideas. Details of the app can be found at www.ipadteachers.co.uk

Dean Mantz's curator insight, December 8, 2014 11:55 AM

I appreciate @John Evans for sharing this on his Scoop.it page "iPad in Education".  As I work with preservice students, those in certain fields claim technology is not an option as they don't understand integration.  With this article, I can provide my students another first hand example of how PE and technology blend.

I like the idea of students being able to create video as part of an assessment portfolio in HPE - innovative way of demonstrating competence in performing skills and could be useful in documenting improvement in skill performance
Lizette Labuschagne's curator insight, June 6, 2016 5:55 AM
our students are so diverse. in physical education both student with higher skill levels and students with lower skill levels could benefit from this app. This is exactly what I was looking for...to motivate our students, to motivate and support them all

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology.

Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy.

Banning and unbanning phones in schools

Banning and unbanning phones in schools | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
When it comes to mobile phones and the education sector, things aren't so simple, and answers vary considerably by place -- and are changing. In some countries and schools, mobile phones are not allowed at all for students (and in some cases for teachers as well) and/or their use is limited to certain circumstances inside (and in some instances even outside) of school. In other places, phones are allowed with few restrictions. In yet other places, long time bans on phones are being reversed. Even where bans are in place, phones are still to be found in schools, for better and for worse, and they are used for a variety of purposes (again, for better and for worse).

Mobile Phone use in schools an interesting discussion
Justin Morgan's curator insight, May 16, 2016 4:53 PM

The use of cell phones in schools has been a major controversy in the past years. When I was in high school, approximately 4 years ago, cell phones were not permitted. Times have changed. People rely on this technological device for so many things. Cell phones allow children and parents to stay in touch, especially in the case of an emergency. I think they are very important. It is understandable that people feel otherwise. Cell phones can be extremely distracting in a learning environment. I feel that the positive aspects of allowing cell phones in school outweigh the negatives. This article was one that I was truly able to relate to. At this point in our technological world, cell phones are a part of our every day lives and I feel it’s wrong for schools to permit them.

Teaching, Tech and Twitter: Gamifying Our STEM Lab. Leveling Up With Challenges, Digital Badges, Display Pages & More!

Teaching, Tech and Twitter: Gamifying Our STEM Lab. Leveling Up With Challenges, Digital Badges, Display Pages & More! | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
Our STEM Lab/Makerspace is a HUGE hit with our students. Since I oversee the lab and take the classes in I get bombarded by kids all day asking if it is their day to go to the STEM Lab. They are building, discovering, exploring, designing, problem solving, and having a blast doing it. However, as the kids continued to explore the STEM Lab we began to notice that they had moved past the exploration phase and wanted a bit more direction and challenge. We realized that we needed to up our game a bit to take our lab to the next level so we decided to gamify our STEM Lab with challenges and badges! It took some prep but once the challenge cards and badges were created we were ready to roll. We are happy to share our tips, tricks and resources so that you can gamify your STEM or STEAM Lab too.

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces!

Shannon Mersand: 12 Questions (and Answers) about Makerspaces! | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
What is needed to start a Makerspace in a classroom or school?

Passion - You need to have passion and a belief in the educational value of maker-style projects.

Space - This can be a whole room or only part of a room.

Supplies - Start small with simple craft materials. Often sending a message out to colleagues and the community asking for donations of materials works well.

Storage - Create a place to store materials when they are not in use and student projects as they are being worked on.

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
Technology is critical for innovation, yet schools struggle to get students interested in this area. Could teaching robotics change this?

The Queensland government has just announced plans to make teaching robotics compulsory in its new curriculum – aimed at students from prep through to year 10.

Robotics matches the new digital technologies curriculum, strongly supported by the university sector and states, including Victoria.

But while, worldwide, there are increasing initiatives such as the Robotics Academy in the US to teach robotics in schools, Australia isn’t doing enough to get it taught in schools.

To explain why we should teach children how to program robots in schools, we first need to understand what a robot is.

How to Manage and Edit the Mailboxes on your iPad | Ipads Advisor | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
The most extensively used email client on iOS is the default Apple Mail application. Sure there are various other email applications around that are much more function abundant as well as wonderful to use. the masses usually go with default programs that come pre-installed in their devices. On top of that, if you aren’t the sort of individual who dives down deep right into your setups, you typically lose out on some clever, helpful little suggestions on celebration. This is one of them. Did your know that in Apple Mail you can include additional mail boxes as well as customize your views to reveal only the mail boxes and sub mailboxes you wish to see? Surprisingly, I was unaware of this feature and inadvertently came across it one day.

A Very Good Digital Citizenship Guide for Teachers ~ EdTech & mLearning | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is an essential 21st century literacy that empowers students to navigate the digital world more safely, respectfully and responsibly. It is a set of interconnected skills that, taken together, form a holistic pedagogical framework to foster students learning in a digitally focused environment. To help teachers incorporate the ethos of digital citizenship in their classrooms, Common Sense Media has put together this interesting resource titled ‘Digital Literacy and Citizenship (teacher edition)’ . This is a curriculum designed specifically for upper elementary to help students  learn the basics of digital citizenship while also developing their digital literacy skills.

Coding and Bots - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein

Coding and Bots - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein | EUSD BTSA Induction | Scoop.it

"I have been asked to return to teach summer enrichment classes on maker education for elementary-aged learners at a local school during the summer of 2016. One of the new classes I am designing is called Coding and Bots. The description is:

"Learn how to code first by playing games and then by coding some bots including Sphero, OZOBOT, and Dash and Dot. All ages are welcome but the child should have basic symbol recognition/reading skills."

Two things to note about this class are, first, I learned last summer not to underestimate the learning potential of very young kids. These classes are mixed ages ranging from 4 to 10 year old kids. For most of the maker education activities, the very young ones could perform them, sometimes better than the older kids. Second, I am a strong proponent of hands on activities. Although I like the use of iPads and computers, I want elementary aged students to have to directly interact with materials. As such, I am designing Coding and Bots to include using their bodies and manipulating objects. This translates into having all activities include the use of objects and materials excluding and in conjunction with the iPad – not just using the iPad and online apps/tools to learn to code. The activities I plan to do follow:"

Carly Pechal's curator insight, September 24, 2015 11:20 PM

Gaming and Coding as most of us know is becoming a more regularly integrated part of education to promote learning, but why? Advanced thinking skills are needed to learn programing, think of all of the careers available with this requirement. Based on starting this integrating in education to students at a young age in the form of a games promotes this stimulating thought process. When incorporating content or the knowledge of an activity in a technological format it reduces the lack of interest and promotes it. While some look at it as a fun activity, other see it as a contest, either way, the students are engaged and learning the foundation of a concept that can land them admired skills. Based on this applications listed, there are multiple options for this skill to be reached in education. Looking at elementariness "Hour of Code," many of these apps can and are used during it as well as some are free.
