Binary Alphabet with Lego - Breaking New Ground - @kstrachan_bng

Earlier in the year I posted about a teacher in the Winnipeg School Division who created a lesson around binary bracelets. Recently, a colleague of mine directed me to a similar idea created by the LEGO brand!

Actually, the LEGO site documented four separate ideas: an online Bits & Bricks Hour of Code Activity, a Binary Alphabet, a LEGO mini robot and a LEGO game building activity. All fabulous on and offline coding based activities. But I want to focus in this post on the Binary Alphabet activity.

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Using Technology in k-5 Education | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

What Drone Technology Can Teach Students | Edudemic

What Drone Technology Can Teach Students | Edudemic | Using Technology in k-5 Education | Scoop.it
If you’re like most people, you think of drones in a military or even in a police context. It’s no wonder why, really, when they most often appear in news reports on the heels of a drone strike we’ve carried out in another country,  when discussing drone monitoring or policing programs, or in exploring the many safety hazards they bring with them. This makes it easy to view drones in a negative or at least a violent light.

But drones, just like all technology, are themselves neither good nor evil. Rather, it’s all in how we use them. Given the right context and guidance, drones can make a creative tool for learning, creativity, and experimentation.

There are, of course, many potential liabilities in using drones within an educational sphere, most pressing of which have to do with safety and liability. Another real issue even for hobbyists is the expense, which may require a grant or a campaign on GoFundMe or DonorsChoose.org to solve.

Still, drones are the future and the future is now. For a moment, let’s suspend some disbelief and any larger concerns, so we can look at the creative teaching potential inherent in this technology.

A fun way to engage your students

Ressources pour les cours d'anglais's curator insight, February 18, 2015 6:25 PM

Des idées simples à mettre en place comme remplacer les notes par des points d'expérience. la gamification permet de rebooster les élèves Mais ne remplace pas la pédagogie.
