Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, July 29, 2014 11:21 AM

It is important for educators to be very strategic concerning classroom design.  I reiterate this point to K-12 teachers often.  Remember, you're developing a learning environment that is inclusive of all students and is designed to engage all students.

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

Free Technology for Teachers: Listen, Compose, and Play Music on SFS Kids

Free Technology for Teachers: Listen, Compose, and Play Music on SFS Kids | interactive sites | Scoop.it

"Three years ago I explored and reviewed the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra's website for kids called Keeping Score. Recently, the site was overhauled with new features and a new name. The new site is called SFS Kids and it is loaded with good activities for elementary school and middle school students.

On SFS Kids students can learn to compose and play music. Your students can jump into any section of SFS Kids and start learning, but it is probably best if they work through the sections in order. Students get started on SFS Kids by listening to samples of different styles of music performed by the symphony. A pop-up dialog box appears with each selection of music. In that dialog box students will learn a bit about the style of the composition and performance they're hearing. After listening to a selection of recordings students move on to playing games in which they try to recognize and match rhythms."

Are you looking for tools that provide you with the opportunity to create rich, multimedia lessons and that support differentiation? The ThingLink Challenge that has been running this summer had one week that focused on using audio as well as ThingLink (for images and/or video) to design a learning experience.

This post from Susan Oxnevad provides great resources. She has embedded a video from CAST that discussed Universal Design for Learning and has links to resources as you watch. Just pause the video and check out the link!

You can also check out "Turn it Up with Audioboo on Padlet." This page provides access to a range of ThingLink projects that have audio links. You will need to click on the title of the image, which will take you to a page with a larger view, and on the lower right hand side you should see the word Source (in red) that will take you to the actual ThingLink page.
