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.

How to Make Money While Still a Teenager - Make lots of money - 0 views

    It's never too early to start earning and saving for the future. Not only will this help us become more responsible, it will also give us a hefty amount of life experience for when we're ready to engage in the adult working world. With that being said, here are a few ways on how you can make money while still a teenager. Sell Art If you're the creative type, you can definitely make use of your talents and skills. There are several websites that could help you set up commissions where you can get paid by drawing what the client requires. Research what clients are looking for. While there is a fairly wide variety of styles a client may require you to draw, there are certain standards to be met when engaging with one. Go ahead and do your research as to what kind of art do most clients need. This can vary from posters, flyers, logo design, character design, backgrounds so on and so forth. Build an impressive portfolio. You've done your research now it's time for you to look at your strengths and create a remarkable portfolio based on that and what your clientele might need. Put out your best work, make it diverse and play by your strengths! Set a price list. Before executing anything, research is extremely important. Go ahead and research about how you should price your work. Despite being a teenager, you shouldn't sell your art for a meager amount of money. Understandably, you do not have as much experience as big-name artists nor have you gotten a degree in art but work is work and bills need to get paid! Compare quality, compare prices and price your art accordingly. Look for websites that cater to artists. There are plenty of websites that cater to artists and plenty of ways to sell your art. For example, DeviantArt has a market open for artists who take in commissions for original characters or art based on shows, comics and/or books. Society6 allows you to draw show-based art and put them on different merchandises s

35 ways to use Twiducate for deeper learning. « taitcoles - 0 views

  • 18. Wordle Twiducate. The ‘print’ option enables you to upload all posts written in the class (also available for the ‘chat’ option), simply cut and paste this into Wordle and you will have a keyword cloud. This could be used for presentations, display, plenaries or starters. Put the word cloud up at the start of a lesson and ask the class “what do you think these students were writing about?”
  • 19. Student Twiducate Questions. Encourage your students to ask YOU questions. Perhaps you could set this up as a piece of homework, ask them to comment on a part of the lesson they perhaps they didn’t fully understand, or ask them to decide what they want to learn next lesson. By viewing posts before lessons you can plan directly for the specific needs of your class.
  • 26. Parent Page. This neat idea could be another way to communicate to parents about the fantastic and engaging learning that their children are doing in your lessons. You could write a brief synopsis of what students are learning in lessons, or to deepen learning ask each student in turn to add to the page; “Sarah, would you like to write three sentences to everyone’s parents about what we’ve learnt today?”
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • 29. Bookmark your presentations. Bookmark the PowerPoint, Prezi presentations that you have used in class. As well as the students having the opportunity to re read it etc, you could also ask them to produce a slide for the presentation as homework etc.
  • 34. Planning for teacher. Use the print option to view what you students have been chatting about, it may be very surprising. If they were all chatting about a certain concept, perhaps you will need to cover it again in another lesson in another way.
  • 35. Wordle it! Again using the print option in Twiducate, cut and paste the chat into Wordle and create a word cloud. This could be used for presentations, display, plenaries or starters. Put the word cloud up at the start of a lesson and ask the class “can you remeber what we were chatting about last lesson?”
  • For the more reluctant students, this allows students to discuss ideas BEFORE they post. Like any class dynamics some students will not be as comfortable as others in saying “but Sir! I don’t get it!”. Allow them to use this tool to ask other students about their learning.

How to Earn Money by Driving - Making Money - 0 views

    There are many smartphone apps that lets you use your personal car or bike and turn it into something profitable. The best part is that you can work on your own free schedule. There are certainly many options for you to use your ride that doesn't include you driving a person from one place to another. Here are some of them: Uber Many of us know, use and even has driven under the famous ride renting service. While it's not something that will make you indescribably rich, it definitely helps pay the bills and give you something productive to do during your free time. Make sure you meet the requirements. Uber definitely has requirements for people who would like to work as drivers whether part-time or full-time. These are of course not only to secure the credibility of their drivers and put their customers at ease but also so they could abide by interstate-sanctioned laws and remain in service for the people. Check if your car, your license and plate number is perfect for Uber's requirements. Register for Uber. Uber requires you to be at least 21 years old and has had 3 years prior of driving experience before they can allow you to work under their name as a driver. At the end of the day, Uber is a business and it is their number one priority to secure the safety of their customers by validating the capability of their driver. Find a schedule that works. Whether you choose to go full-time or part-time as a driver on Uber, choose a schedule that works perfectly for you. This is often something most drivers overlook and it leads to an unstable and irregular schedule that does not get them much ratings and therefore, not a lot of customers. Delivery Service Apps There are tons of delivery service apps that are inspired by the rise in fame of Uber. Not only are they convenient, they are also extremely varied and interesting. Here's how you can start delivering goods and or services. Look up apps. There are different delive

6 Ways to Honor the Learning Process in Your Classroom | Edutopia - 0 views

  • Roughly put, learning is really just a growth in awareness.
  • While morsels of information -- math theorems, for example -- may not change, the context in which students use them do change. Which in turn changes how we consider and use that morsel.
  • Even what we call facts -- significant historical dates, labels for ethnic groups, causes and effects of cultural movements -- all change endlessly, if not in form (how they're discussed), then in meaning and connotation (what we think of them).
  • ...10 more annotations...
  • And thus changing how students use this skill or understanding. And thus changing how we, as teachers, "teach it."
  • This could be thought of as depth of understanding, a term that produced a depth of knowledge (DOK) framework for measuring understanding which is still used in many districts. Bloom's Taxonomy (1) or even the TeachThought Learning Taxonomy (2) are all tools to help evaluate understanding -- how well a student "gets it."
  • 1. Use Learning Taxonomies
  • 2. Use Concept Maps
  • Have students map, chart, diagram or otherwise visually represent their own learning pathways and changes in their own understanding.
  • 3. Use a Variety of Assessment Forms
  • 4. Build Metacognition into Units
  • Prime the pump by assigning students quick writing prompts about their own thinking.
  • 6. Connect Students to Networks
  • As students connect to networks, the learning process will plug them in, not just to one teacher, or 25 classmates, or eight texts, but to something much larger -- and more able to interact with students organically.

    This is an awesome resource to use, especially with student who are more visual.
    This looks like a great site. Will use when teaching Human Development regarding memory and learning theory. Will also use as a strategy in Instructional Strategies. Great for ESE and ESOL also.
    I love it, I think it is so good for internationals students and ESL
    I think this is an awesome approach to foreign students and even those of us that need that extra assistance in ESOL
    I wonder can this be incorporated into a middle school class room lesson plan. We use books for so many years, until computers were introduced. Is it fair for students to be able to go online and use this Visuwords. I think this is awesome and feel it would be of some help.
