Robots in Education: What's Here and What's Coming | Edudemic - 2 views

  •  
    "Decades before the computer revolution began to spread in earnest, science fiction's most creative minds sketched out a future most of us never thought we'd see. And yet between self-driving cars and yes, even hoverboards, that future seems closer than ever.

    Nowhere is this more of a reality than in the field of robotics. Sure, we may not each have our own robotic besties/slaves as the old sci fi shows predicted we'd have by now, but judging by the many creative ways robotics are used in so many classrooms today, well…We're pretty close. Let's take a look at some of the neatest and most inspiring ways Robot Education (RoboEd?) is unfolding today"

Flipping the classroom when home access is a problem | eSchool News - 0 views

  •  
    "Ask any educator, and they've probably at least heard of flipping the classroom. There are articles for days about the benefits and rewards to be reaped from flipping. Plenty of teachers have given it a go, or at least considered it. Too many teachers have ruled it out on account of their students' lack of access.

    It's true that our students come from all walks of life. We see the ones with the new Jordans or the latest iPhone, and their peers wearing the old hand-me-down sweater. All of them are our future. All of them are entitled to the best education possible. Only some of them are equipped with the means to achieve their fullest potential.

    Believe it or not, flipping the classroom can actually help close this gap. If only the gap weren't the main reason educators choose not to flip in the first place. So how can we reach kids who don't have consistent access?"

Pixar In A Box Teaches Math Through Real Animation Challenges | MindShift | KQED News - 4 views

  •  
    "The Pixar In A Box lessons start with a technical problem that animators face and work into the math from there. In each video a real Pixar animator lays out the technical problem, and then students get to experiment with interactive elements to better understand the problem. Gradually the video works towards a more explicit explanation of the math involved, and by the end the student is calculating to solve the actual problems faced at Pixar.

MUST KNOW Camera Features for iPad & iPhone Photography | iPad Art Room - 3 views

  •  
    ""The best camera, is the one you have with you." Chase Jarvis It's a classic photographic mantra, a call to action for image-makers everywhere. And these days, the camera you are most likely to have with you is the one embedded in your smart phone.

    But do you know how to use it? What about your students?

    There are many great features built into our mobile devices for photography, and a myriad of apps to produce exciting visual imagery. While some teachers and students are experienced users creating highly original work using complex workflows and inventive techniques, in my workshops I am constantly amazed that it's some of the most basic tips and tricks that get the most cheers, the practical solutions that are big wins for our classroom context.

    So, here are six foundational tools built into the iPhone and iPad camera that all teachers and students should know."
