John Dalziel's curator insight, September 20, 2013 4:35 AM

eduClipper is a social web tool that was born from a need to address several issues that practitioners and learners are facing today, both in and out of the learning environment.

Because eduClipper was designed by an educator, Adam Bellow, an educational technologist who spent six years as a classroom practitioner before becoming a technology training specialist and then technology director, the tool has many unique education features that support practitioners, promoting practitioner effectiveness and professional learning.

eduClipper is a great tool for practitioners and learners to explore, share, and contribute information.

The site makes it safe and secure for learning to be enhanced by social tools and for practitioners and learners to build and be part of a global social learning network where what they create and share has social value and matters.

Augmented Reality in the Science Classroom

Augmented Reality in the Science Classroom | Teaching | Scoop.it

"

I just finished week one of the new school year.  What an exciting four days!

Thanks to the ISTE Conference and a series of new connections, this summer was an inspiration.   Armed with too many new ideas to implement and a slew of new technologies, I jumped in, iPad first.  My new eighth-graders had never used iPads in the classroom, but based on their enthusiasm for technology, I knew anything I threw at them would be a huge hit!   I decided to go big and introduced them to augmented reality right from the start.  To say they were “impressed” is an understatement!"

This showcases an great app that focuses on Augmented Reality! The teacher who wrote this blog was teaching Year 8 students about safety, emergency protocols and tools in the science laboratory. He taught it in an engaging way with the use of an Augmented Reality app called Aurasma on the iPad. Each student had an iPad and were told to walk around the lab and take notes of the tools that were on benches.

 

He also talks about how he had a few dilemmas but worked his way around them and found other alternatives - it definitely shows his willingness to try something new in the classroom.

 

This is definitely worth reading, it could help you think of new engaging ways to incorporate Augmented Reality in the classroom.

Sketchlot is a web whiteboard for practitioners.


With Sketchlot practitioners can easily create sketches and share them with their learners.


Sketchlot does not...

- require learners to sign up, practitioners add them to their accounts.

- call for any software or plugin installation.

 

Sketchlot is designed to work on all current tablets, phones and computers.

 

The idea is for learners to create pieces of work, using their device, and share it with their practitioner.

Practitioners can...

- re-share work to others, or

- post it for others to view.

- also create and share a sketch on theirr interative whiteboard in front of their learners!
Practitioners can also embed sketches to their class website, pin them to pinterest or tweet them to twitter!

4 Powerful Apps to Visually Sketch Ideas on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

4 Powerful Apps to Visually Sketch Ideas on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching | Scoop.it

"One of the best techniques to catch and record ideas is through using visual graphs. Data that is visually encoded is more likely to be processed by the mind in a faster and easier way. This is probably the reason why students love it when comics and graphic are included in instruction. In this regard,  Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated a list of some powerful iPad apps that you and your students can use to visually grab ideas and create sketchy mindmaps. I invite you to check the collection below and share with us what you think of them."

As an avid mind mapper, I would like to add the following apps to the growing list: ThinkBuzan.com's iMindMap HD; Mindjet Maps; MindMaple, and iThoughts HD. Also, MindTools HD for the iPad (see mindtools.com) is a suite of tools covering a wide range of essential skills for students and workplace professionals alike.
Melissa Marshall's comment, September 23, 2013 11:02 PM
great, thanks Rick I will have a look at some of those! Evernote and Notability are my two personal faves, My students love Popplet for mind mapping and they draw a lot using Notability.
Rick Gill's comment, September 24, 2013 7:16 PM
I use Evernote on my iPhone, iPad and PC as well. Excellent tool for managing information of all types
