5 Tools Students Can Use to Create Alternative Book Reports

5 Tools Students Can Use to Create Alternative Book Reports | teachers teaching computers | Scoop.it

This afternoon someone emailed me asking for some suggestions for tools for creating book trailer videos. It has been two years since I last wrote about the topic so I created a new list of tools for creating book trailers. Book trailers are short videos designed to spark a viewer's interest in a book. Having students create book trailers is an excellent alternative to traditional book report projects. A great place to find examples of book trailers is Book Trailers for Readers.

What Do You Want Kids to Do with Technology?

What Do You Want Kids to Do with Technology? | teachers teaching computers | Scoop.it

Wrong Answers: make Prezis, start blogs, create Wordles, publish Animotos, design flipcharts, produce videos, post to Edmodo, use whiteboard, develop apps

 

Right Answers: raise awareness, start conversations, find answers (to THEIR questions), join partners, change minds, make a difference, take action, drive change

 

Technology is a TOOL, NOT an outcome

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

Getting Started with Student and Teacher Created eBooks

Getting Started with Student and Teacher Created eBooks | teachers teaching computers | Scoop.it
Writing books with or for young children supports literacy skills and creative thinking.

 

One of the hottest topics in educational technology today has to be mobile content creation. With the rise of the tablet, particularly the iPad, K12 and adult students are eager for opportunities to learn just-in-time with their device of choice. Apple’s January 2012 announcement of digital textbooks and a teacher-friendly iBook authoring software has pushed the conversation around eBooks to the forefront of the educational landscape.

To meet the changing demands of our learners, teachers need to become proficient in mobile learning pedagogical approach that is grounded in a thorough understanding of mobile technologies hardware, software and OS. This session will prepare K-5 administrators, teachers and parents to support student use of iOS learner-centered devices including iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone in the creation of custom digital texts.
