Alison Rostetter's curator insight, November 26, 2017 5:59 PM
A very useful tool with all sorts of applications.  My students have used it to make short presentations.  The nice thing is, they can do the work when they have time, save it on a stick and bring it to class at any time even if they're busy.  It can also be privately shared with a teacher.  I use it for a speaking grade because I don't have time for personal interviews in term time.  I encourage questions from the class following the presentation for some inter-action.

17 Little-Known Tips, Tricks and Hacks for Using Google in the Classroom | EdSurge News | Educational programs, user guides and tips | Scoop.it
Here’s a slightly Orwellian way to check whether your students may have plagiarized part of their essays: the Chrome extension Draftback, which plays back the revision history of any Google doc you can edit—down to the keystroke.

That was just one of the many extensions, add-ons and hacks for the Google ecosystem shared at a pair of sessions packed to the rafters at the Spring CUE 2018 conference in Palm Springs, Calif. The tools span everything from music to time-saving shortcuts and supports for struggling students or those with learning disabilities. Check out these educators’ top picks or explore a list of attendee favorites here.

This appears to quite a practical product that represents a real step forward in maximizing use of iOS hardware (iPhones and iPads) to simplify quality video production. While I don't usually post about products that cost more than a few dollars, since my colleague Jeff Bradbury thinks so highly of it, I am sharing his endorsement.

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’? | Educational programs, user guides and tips | Scoop.it
Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace. The only choice a student gets is what box to check on the screen and how quickly to move through the exercises. For many educators that’s not the true meaning of “personalized learning.”

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 2017 10:12 PM
"Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace."

How is that different than the traditional process of prescribed set of activities. The only difference is pacing, maybe? What is different is it is an facile and trite new expression that is easy to throw out there and impress people. It is part of a nonsensical neo-liberal agenda.

I subscribe to John Dewey, William Doll, and Ted Aoki and letting students have a voice in their learning in ways that allow them freedom to make choices and still follow the curriculum-as-plan.
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 5, 2017 12:39 PM

Personalized learning is not learn at your pace and check the box when you are done. Thats control and compliance to learn something. Personalized learning misgiving the learner the  freedom to follow a meaningful line of inquiry, while building the skills to connect, challenge and analyze information and make their assumptions on best way to leverage those skills.
