Perusall is a useful tool for turning a face to face course into blended learning without too much extra work.

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, September 26, 2017 4:28 AM
Order and assign textbooks, articles, or your PDFs in Perusall. Students annotate the readings and asynchronously respond to each other's comments and questions about the readings in context. With novel data analytics, Perusall automatically generates optimal student groupings and social interactions, grades students' engagement to ensure they are prepared for class, and nudges those who need help to keep everyone on track.

Great learning platform.

Juan Camilo Largo's curator insight, September 1, 2017 12:45 PM
Kiddom is a website recommended by Nik Peachey for several reasons. First, it enhances the planning and performance of classes by putting all your materials in the same place, which works similar to a cloud. It also allows you to create a class environment online. Therefore, you are able to adjust the setting for the class you want to create and adapt it to the courses you will add to the platform. It has the option to select the subject, grade, and students when you are creating the class. In addition to it, Kiddom offers you the possibility to analize your students' learning process through easy diagrams and statistics. Those are some of the great features that we can take advantage of when using Kiddom.

The Feynman Technique for learning | #LEARNing2LEARN

The Feynman Technique  for learning | #LEARNing2LEARN | Tools4Learning | Scoop.it
The Feynman Technique is perfect for learning a new idea, understanding an existing idea better, remembering an idea, or studying for a test. The Feynman Technique is a mental model that was coined by Nobel-prize winning physicist Richard Feynman. Known as the "Great Explainer," Feynman was revered for his ability to clearly illustrate dense topics…

Una tecnica de éxito probado para un mejor y mas eficaz aprendizaje
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, May 5, 2017 10:39 AM
By attempting to explain a concept in simple terms, you’ll quickly see where you have a good understanding of that concept. You’ll also be able to instantly pinpoint your problem areas, because they’ll be the areas where you either get stuck or where you end up resorting to using complex language and terminology. In addition to helping you pinpoint those problem areas in the concept you’re trying to learn, the Feynman Technique gives you a quick, efficient way to shore up those areas using targeted learning. It’s a simple technique, but it’ll help you study much more efficiently once you put into action. How to Use the Feynman Technique: Step 1: Grab a sheet of paper and write the name of the concept at the top. You can use pretty much any concept or idea – even though the technique is named after Feynman, it’s not limited solely to math and science. Step 2: Explain the concept in your own words as if you were teaching it to someone else. Focus on using plain, simple language. Don’t limit your explanation to a simple definition or a broad overview; challenge yourself to work through an example or two as well to ensure you can put the concept into action. Step 3: Review your explanation and identify the areas where you didn’t know something or where you feel your explanation is shaky. Once you’ve pinpointed them, go back to the source material, your notes, or any examples you can find in order to shore up your understanding. Step 4: If there are any areas in your explanation where you’ve used lots of technical terms or complex language, challenge yourself to re-write these sections in simpler terms. Make sure your explanation could be understood by someone without the knowledge base you believe you already have. Step 5: think like a child; while you’re working through the Feynman Technique for any given concept, it can be useful to pretend that you’re explaining that concept to a child. Doing this will boost your own understanding for one simple reason; a kid is probably going ask why? Why does that formula work? How can you know it`ll always work? While older people often become accustomed to taking things at face value, kids are naturally curious. They’re quick to point out their confusion. This is a great mindset to adopt.

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning | Tools4Learning | Scoop.it
As a former ELA teacher, I am naturally drawn to technology that supports reading and writing. Google Docs is fully-loaded with some features that can save us time in and out of the classroom, and often times can even save us a little heartache when it comes to supporting students.

One tiny little feature that packs an amazing punch is Voice Typing in Google Docs. This is a speech-to-text feature that is built-in to the most popular word processor in the world, and it is available to you and your students if you have a microphone in your devices.

You can dictate all kinds of words, lists, and writing into Google Docs. You can also dictate formatting, punctuation, and editing. But wait…there’s more! YOU CAN DICTATE IN OTHER LANGUAGES!!!!! WHOA!!!!
