Assistive Technology: IdeaPaint- Turning Any Surface into a Dry Erase Whiteboard - 0 views

  •  
    Giving students and teachers the opportunity to visualize ideas and concepts is one proven way to improve achievement in the classroom. While many classrooms now have whiteboards as well as interactive whiteboards there are still a large number of schools that still have traditional blackboards that long for the opportunity to have a whiteboard that they can put colored markers to. Replacing blackboards with whiteboards can be extremely expensive for schools when you take into account the labor and the price of good quality whiteboards. But what if there was a cost effective way for classrooms to transform their blackboards into whiteboards? In fact, there is a cost effective way to accomplish this using IdeaPaint- an easy to use dry erase paint that can be applied to almost any surface. In fact some teachers have used IdeaPaint to paint the walls as well as the top of student's desks. I had learned about IdeaPaint several years ago but was excited to see how educators in New Jersey were using this product in the classroom. IdeaPaint has a number of great videos on their website demonstrating how teachers across the US are using IdeaPaint in the classroom to make learning more interactive and more visually appealing.

  •  
    Inspirational quotes on your homepage are an excellent welcome to your parents and students.Need help finding a quote?Try ("find a quote" is in the top left corner), Homework assignments should be posted, but I do understand the difficulty with this.I was never one who could stone in my lesson plans two weeks in advance since my lessons seemed to alter regularly depending on classroom situations.If your web site does not already offer an assignment calendar, my suggestion is to create an RSS type calendar at SHOULD NOT POST Images copied from other websites.

Virtually Transforming Classrooms | EDC Blog - 0 views

  • Enter the world of the post-secondary Learning Management System. Sure, it’s multi-faceted and has a wide range of tools, but in the whole it remains difficult for students to openly collaborate in person, be creative from a distance and proactively learn class material, and all within the same environment, all at the same time.
  • Virtual worlds like Second Life and Lively beta by Google, on the other hand, are three-dimensional (3D) environments accessible over the internet through a high-speed connection. At first, they feel like games, but after some time exploring you begin to realize that it’s not all stimulation: It’s intuitive, interactive, collaborative, and social. These virtual worlds have not only begun to attract attention from companies seeking better conferencing tools, considerable attention has been delivered by educators who believe that virtual worlds have a place in the educational discourse through ‘immersive learning’ - worlds that can offer course content in a virtual setting in different ways that students can immerse themselves in, rather than requiring the student to be adaptive to the material.
  • According to Calongne, “Virtual world classrooms use a mix of media-rich course materials”, and “since a student’s understanding of complex content may be hazy, offering information in a variety of ways allows students to use the information and virtual environment around them to solve problems and create solutions for their projects.” Suddenly, students are a part of the learning and not just mindlessly assimilating concepts before storing this information in the back of their minds for the long term. Now, they can experience it.
