The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality | English as a Second Language, ICT & e-Learning | Scoop.it
While AR isn’t difficult or expensive to use (especially when compared to 3D Printing or Maker Spaces), it does require forethought and planning. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet with a back facing camera, an augmented reality app (many free), a trigger image (you create yourself, probably for free), and an Internet connection. Then, scan the trigger image with a mobile device app and see what happens!

Some nice ideas.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, March 20, 2018 10:34 AM
Some interesting applications for K-12, but there are some that can also be adapted for higher ed. 
 
Susan's curator insight, March 28, 2018 3:59 AM
Although AR isn't one of my favorite uses of technology in the classroom, I do think that it can be educational if used on occasion or as a one-off activity. Kids will certainly be amazed at what they see and you can build on that initial engagement to create real authentic tasks.

Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks

Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks | English as a Second Language, ICT & e-Learning | Scoop.it
One of the major criticisms of this method though is that a dull unengaging content doesn't suddenly become engaging because it's on a video on the web, so how do we get students to engage with the content and make sure they watch it in a challenging and interactive way.

Vialogues is a useful tool for attempting to do this (though dull content will always be dull) because it enables you to create interaction around the video that actually gets students to think about and engage with the content.

Ciudadanía Digital: algunas claves para tus alumnos

Ciudadanía Digital: algunas claves para tus alumnos | English as a Second Language, ICT & e-Learning | Scoop.it

Ciudadanía digital (también denominado ciberciudadanía o e-ciudadanía) viene empleándose con dos sentidos, partiendo desde dos ópticas y áreas de conocimiento distintas pero confluentes: por un lado, hay quien lo utiliza para referirse a la aplicación de los derechos humanos y derechos de ciudadanía a la sociedad de la información, y, por otro, quien lo limita a aquellas nuevas cuestiones relativas a los derechos y deberes de los ciudadanos que surgen en el entorno de las nuevas tecnologías. (ref. wikipedia) ¿cómo puedo explicarlo a mis alumnos?

Cómo crear un grupo en Gmail 

Cómo crear un grupo en Gmail  | English as a Second Language, ICT & e-Learning | Scoop.it

Pero si esta operación se repite a menudo, es el momento de crear una lista de correo, que Gmail llama Grupo o Etiqueta. Los nombres son bastantes descriptivos: se trata de crear un grupo con esas personas, y darle un nombre. Por ejemplo, Gente del gimnasio, o Compañeros del trabajo.

Al enviar un mensaje simplemente tendremos que poner como remitente el nombre del grupo, y automáticamente será enviado a todos los miembros.

La suite ofimática de Google cumple sobradamente con las necesidades de un usuario medio, sea para hacer documentos de texto, hojas de cálculo o presentaciones con diapositivas. Tiene, además, la ventaja de trabajar en la nube de Google Drive y el ventajón de ser servicios gratuitos —por algún lado lo cobrarán, que nadie regala nada en este mundo—. Por ello, estas aplicaciones googleras son una opción de primera para quien no quiera gastar en una suscripción a Office 365 ni comprar software alguno.

Una visión informal de Flip Teaching, fácil, entendible y aplicable

Una visión informal de Flip Teaching, fácil, entendible y aplicable | English as a Second Language, ICT & e-Learning | Scoop.it

Flip Teaching, Flipped Classroom o aula invertida, como quieran llamarlo, se viene definiendo como la inversión del modelo tradicional “la lección en casa” y “los deberes en clase”. Parece algo nuevo, innovador y, además es tendencia en innovación educativa.
Sin embargo, el planteamiento informal es antiguo, cotidiano y normalmente una pared con la que chocamos una y otra vez el profesorado (porque se intenta desde hace décadas y nunca funciona)
