    This description of how a computer science instructor flipped his class is really a classic. You can do this with any subject, and not too long ago we did something very similar with Shaking the Way We Teach English for 20,000+ EFL teachers in an online class that ran fro over 2 years in 6-week intervals. This approach really works.

The less flexible the teaching, the more poorly boys read - UKEdChat - 1 views

  •  
    "n their study, Van Hek, Kraaykamp and Buchmann show that the structure of the education system influences the differences in reading performance by boys and girls. The less freedom that teachers and schools have to design their own teaching methods, the worse their pupils perform, especially boys. So the more standardised the education in a country becomes, the bigger the differences in reading performance by boys and girls. The researchers found the biggest difference between the sexes in Bulgaria, where education is very strictly standardised. The smallest difference was in Chile, where there is a lot of freedom to adjust teaching to the individual student. In the Netherlands the difference between boys and girls is also relatively small and the freedom for schools and teachers relatively large. "

    Metacognition is thinking about thinking. It can have a huge impact: "John Hattie concluded that Metacognitive strategies have a positive impact score of D=0,69 - just outside the top ten of the most effective pedagogical strategies available to teachers - when sustained in the classroom. Additionally, the Educational Endowment Foundation advocate that Metacognition provides a 'high impact for low value', being easy to implement." T/h Colin Hill

ClassroomQ: A Better Way to Ask and Manage Questions - Nick's Picks For Educational Tec... - 2 views

  • Teachers see an ordered list of student requests along with any optional comments that students may have provided. Simply clicking on a student’s name removes them from the list. A Better Workflow ClassroomQ can play an important role in the workflow of the student-centered classroom. Students requesting help no longer have to sit with their hands up, doing nothing for extended periods of time. Teachers can give their full attention to the student(s) they are working with, knowing that other students have been acknowledged. ClassroomQ Accounts Free accounts are limited to a maximum of five students in the queue at one time (which should be plenty for most classrooms). Paid accounts ($19.99/yr.) are unlimited and also offer the ability to view who has checked in to a class along, and the option to download data from each class session.

    "The ease of use and simplicity of design are what really make ClassroomQ stand out. After creating an account, teachers can start a class session with one click. "Students join the session by going to classroomq.com/students, enter their teacher's name and class code. They can then ask for assistance and will be added to the teacher's queue with the push of a button. They can also see how many students are ahead of them at any time."ClassroomQ Assistance Button "Teachers see an ordered list of student requests along with any optional comments that students may have provided.

Webjets.io - The new way to collect, organize and share anything - 1 views

  •  
    "When you first look at Webjets, you might think, "Oh, it's like Padlet." And in some ways, you'd be right: In Webjets, users create boards where they gather items on cards, placing these on a desktop that feels like a bulletin board. "But with Webjets, these cards work even harder than they do on Padlet, and they come in a variety of formats: A card can contain an image, an embedded video, a live Google Doc, an attached file, or a table containing a variety of elements organized into columns. Probably the best feature is that cards can be collected into folders, where the items are listed along the left, and the selected item appears in a larger window on the right. You can keep multiple folders on one board, and all cards can be collapsed or expanded, making it easy to neatly collect large amounts of resources all in one place. "Webjets would be an excellent, flexible tool for any kind of group project or curation task, whether it's done by you or your students." T/h J. Gonzalez

GeoGuessr - Let's explore the world! - 0 views

  •  
    "This addictive game plunks you down somewhere in the world using Google Street view. You literally start on some country road and the whole point of the game is to figure out where in the world you are. You can navigate down the road in the app, and you can turn around and zoom in to look more closely at things, but because the game often chooses the most remote locations, you often find yourself traveling for quite a while before you see any clues. Once you do see something-a road sign, ideally, or something at least with language on it-you can start figuring it out. "I don't even know if this is following the rules, but the times I've played this, I've been amazed at the number of resources I ended up pulling together to figure things out: I do Google image matches, use Google Translate to figure out what a language even is, and even look things up on Wikipedia to figure out if I'm on the right track. I've had four or five different tabs open to try and narrow down a precise location, and all the while, I'm learning stuff. I had no idea, for example, that there was an island called Gotland off the coast of Sweden! Or that there's an animal called a springhare in South Africa that looks an awful lot like a kangaroo" T/h to Jennifer Gonzalez

Equity Maps® - Improve collaboration, reflection & engagement- iPad App for S... - 1 views

  •  
    "Figuring out which students participate in a class discussion-and how often-can be a huge challenge. Equity Maps is an iPad app for keeping track of that. "You start by creating a seating chart that shows where students are sitting for a discussion. When the discussion starts, you just tap each student's icon as that student contributes to the conversation. Equity Maps keeps track of how long each student talks so that when you're done, you can get a summary of how often each class member participated, how many were active participants, and whether there was equal gender distribution among those who actively engaged." Sounds like a good teacher tool. T/h to Jennifer Gonzalez

    3. Google Tour Creator "A lot of teachers are already familiar with Google Expeditions, a virtual reality platform that lets users experience hundreds of places in the world in 3D. But what you might not know is that you can now create your own tours using Tour Creator. This tool enables us to create our own tours, using imagery from Google Street View or our own 360 photos, then publish them right into Poly, Google's library of free VR and AR objects. "Students can create tours as part of a research project, use them as a way to reflect after a field trip, or even as a supplement to a creative writing project. They can be used to create tours of your school, your classroom, or your town. If your school doesn't currently have much VR technology, start with an affordable Google Cardboard-just pop a smartphone into one of these and you now have one VR headset that can be used by a small group of students."

Designing Education - UKEdChat - 0 views

    "Many of us will have fond memories of children's TV engaging us to turn our used bottles into rockets, our wooden spoons into cartoon character puppets, and attaching googly eyes to anything which keeps still for more than 3 seconds! Schools are great at turning recycling into creativity, and design is at the heart of this. Later, the skills pupils learn turning pasta into planes and tins into trains fuel are the beginning of making the engineers and artisans of the future."
