How To: Screen Record Your iPad | The Tech Savvy Educator - 4 views

  •  
    "I support the technological efforts of a few hundred teachers and thousands of students within my school district. I know there are others that perform roughly the same function as I do around Michigan, and the United States. I figured there might be a few more of us out there trying to provide support for iPads and other iOS devices. I've been creating "how to" videos for iPads every week since the start of this school year, and I though it might be a good idea to create a how to video of how I'm actually making the iPad videos.

Joanne published the guide on Slideshare and you find it there, on her blog, or as embedded below."

  •  
    "I've taught about Google Drive/Docs many times in person and virtually. Many teachers have decided to completely move all of their files to the cloud to store them and edit them via Google Drive. The idea of having access to your stuff from any device connected to the web is really appealing; coupled with the collaboration features that Docs offers."

Kleinspiration: Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Co... - 5 views

  •  
    "Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image. For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster. Pretty cool, right? The first time it happens, it seems like magic."

These guides are also illustrated by screenshots and explanatory text and in some cases video clips.
    Today's tutorial is on the use of Google forms. By the end of this guide you will be able to :

20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture - 9 views

  •  
    "It's an age-old saying, "Give a man a fish, and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime."

    What separates good teachers from the excellent ones? The excellent ones are handing out fishing poles; creating a culture in the classroom of independence and self-reliance. These students don't just recite facts or regurgitate information- they have learned how to learn. They know that if the answer isn't in front of them, they have the tools to do the investigation and research.

    So how do you cultivate a culture of "I can…" in your classroom?"
