Great little addition for Prezi users to create polls right within Prezi. 

N Kaspar's curator insight, June 8, 2014 12:27 AM

Excellent tool.  And it works without a Prezi presentation for an event that spans over a week.  Very cool.

 

Tanja Gvozdeva's curator insight, October 25, 2014 2:15 PM

Sli.do is a great assistant when you present with Prezi. It lets you have instant audience interaction via real-time polls.

Basic account is free but your data are public and they are retained for 1 week, however, it is a useful application for classroom activities.

Sli.do also works with Google Glass and Eventbrite.

Thinking Creatively and Critically

Thinking Creatively and Critically | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it

Want Your Students to Think Creatively and Critically?  How About Teaching Them?

Ever hear a conversation like this in your department?

Professor X: "All these students can do is plug numbers into formulas-give them a problem a little different from the one in the text and they're helpless."

Professor Y: "Yeah, and they're also functionally illiterate-most of them couldn't write a coherent grocery list. On a quiz last month I asked for a clear and grammatically correct definition of vapor pressure, and a bunch of the students stomped me for it on the midterm evals. "I went into engineering to get away from this crap," one of them said.

Professor Z: "It's this whole spoiled generation-they want the grades but don't want to do anything for them!"

If you haven't heard anything like that, you haven't been listening.

Classroom Management and the Flipped Class

Classroom Management and the Flipped Class | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it
The flipped classroom casts a different light on classroom management issues, as teachers rethink one-on-one time, off-task students, freedom vs. control, and parent expectations.

 

Lets face it. We teachers spend far too much time and energy trying to keep students quiet so that they can listen to us. We have taken countless courses and workshops on classroom management in our careers, and it seems that the underpinning goal of classroom management is for teachers to keep kids quiet so that they can learn. Is there a better way to think about classroom management?

What’s Your Relationship with Your Textbook?

What’s Your Relationship with Your Textbook? | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it
I just read a couple of interesting studies exploring the relationship between the content in texts and the content covered by the teacher. The analysis was of introductory psychology courses and the conclusion not terribly surprising. The lecture and textbook material corresponded closely. If the chapter was long and the coverage extensive, a larger amount of lecture time was devoted to the topic as well.

A new free, five-week MOOC will help educators design more engaging blended learning courses. "BlendKit2014" marks the first venture into the world of MOOCs for @EDUCAUSE.

 

Participants of the new MOOC may pursue an official “UCF/EDUCAUSE Certified Blended Learning Designer” certificate for completion of the course if they submit a portfolio of the blended learning materials they develop throughout the course of the class.

BlendKit2014 begins on April 21 and is currently open for registration through the Canvas Network. For more details check out #BlendKit2014 on Twitter.

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it
Self-regulated learning is like your own little secret. It stirs from within you, and is the voice in your head that asks you questions about your learning.

More formally, self-regulated learning is the conscious planning, monitoring, evaluation, and ultimately control of one’s learning in order to maximize it. It’s an ordered process that experts and seasoned learners like us practice automatically. It means being mindful, intentional, reflective, introspective, self-aware, self-controlled, and self-disciplined about learning, and it leads to becoming self-directed.

Putting E-Portfolios at the Center of Our Learning

Putting E-Portfolios at the Center of Our Learning | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it

Guttman's goal in transforming the traditional model of community college education is to significantly increase student engagement, success, retention, and graduation rates.

 

E-portfolios are central to this transformation. They enable us to connect our high impact practices into a holistic, integrative learning environment for students. E-portfolios also serve as the primary vehicle for assessment at Guttman, using authentic student work to create a culture of learning and continuous improvement. Guttman is the first college in the country to be built with e-portfolio as the centerpiece of learning, connecting curricular, cocurricular, and institutional structures. Our vision statement reflects this:

How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students

How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it

"How long can you reasonably expect your students to pay attention during your lessons? Some psychologists claim the typical student’s attention span is about 10 to 15 minutes long, yet most university classes last 50 to 90 minutes. Students’ attention levels vary widely based on factors like motivation, emotion, enjoyment, and time of day."

Student-Created Digital Artifacts as a Teaching Strategy

Student-Created Digital Artifacts as a Teaching Strategy | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it

Students in my class on imperial Russian history faced an unusual final assignment: building a website based on original research on a topic of their choice. The impressive quality of their projects convinced me of the benefits of having students make online digital artifacts as class assignments. I suggest calling this teaching method "class-sourcing," an adaptation of the term crowd-sourcing. The latter describes the creation of digital artifacts best exemplified by Wikipedia.
A related but distinct method, class sourcing involves students building websites, wikis, blogs, videos, podcasts, and other digital artifacts as part of their class activities. As with a research paper, students conduct independent research on a specific topic, and then analyze, organize, and communicate this information. Doing so strengthens their research, writing, and critical thinking abilities as well as their understanding of class content.

Seven Steps to Creating Screencast Videos for Online Learning

Seven Steps to Creating Screencast Videos for Online Learning | HCC Faculty Development | Scoop.it
When I first started teaching online, one of the most frustrating aspects was that I did not have access to an old-fashioned blackboard to give students a visual map of what I was teaching. I felt restricted by the text-based instruction of the discussion board and eventually began creating colorful flowcharts to teach essay structure, for example, or PowerPoint slides to explain the MLA style format.
