The coolest bits of classroom tech I've ever seen | Education IT - 0 views

  •  
    I met with a representative from Turning Technologies today. While many of you may have had the opportunity to use interactive response systems (so-called "clickers"), we're finally moving into the 21st century; now that we have reasonable computing facilities at all of our schools, our goal is to fully utilize them and add interactivity. Thus, these interactive response systems that allow students to answer questions and take surveys in class with their aggregated responses displayed within a PowerPoint presentation or on a standalone unit. The real beauty of Turning's system is its direct integration with PowerPoint (sorry, no OpenOffice integration, although the software can be superimposed over any Mac or Windows software). It includes a dedicated toolbar and a series of macros for automating the creation of interactive slides.

Make Any Printer AirPrint Compatible - 17 views

  •  
    AirPrint is definitely one of the more convenient features of iOS 4.2.1 and thanks to a new tool you can turn any printer connected to your Mac or Windows PC into an AirPrint compatible printer. The utility is called AirPrint Hacktivator and it's very easy to use, this is a much simpler method than using the prior hack to manually enable AirPrint in Mac OS X 10.6.5.

Teaching with Games: GLPC Case Study: Ginger - 9 views

    • Paul Boyer
       
      Particularly interesting to me in light of the special needs applications.
  •  
    The Joan Ganz Cooney Center released new research from the Games and Learning Publishing Council initiative. They conducted a series of video case studies and a national survey, Teacher Attitudes about Digital Games in the Classroom, undertaken in collaboration with and support from BrainPOP®. Each video case study shows an individual teacher who integrates digital games into his or her curriculum in exciting and innovative ways. This video features Ginger Stevens, a 6th grade special-education teacher at Quest2Learn in New York City. This video case study shows how she utilizes the intentionally game-like environment of her school to maximize learning for students with special needs.   Talks about kids interacting with each other AND digital images projected onto the floor and connected to the computer. Essentially a floor-based white board

ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment: ED-451 Technology Tools Assessment - 0 views

  • This semester I have been tasked to assess eight technology tools that I have utilized in my audio and visual education class. The tools that I will assess are Moodle, Firefox, NiceNet, Del.icio.us, Google Suites, Ning, Yahoo 360, and Jing. The last tool that I will be assessing was not required for this class, but I chose to assess it because I only learned of and used this tool while completing a different assignment in this class. Below are my assessments of the eight tools with star ratings out of five.

The Manual Works Prompter 5.4 Download - Freeware Files.com - Audio & Video Category - 13 views

  •  
    Do you ever need to read a script of any sort, for any reason? Would you find it easier if the script scrolled ´before your very eyes´ just like a professional ´teleprompter´ or ´autocue´ device? Then The Manual Works Prompter is for YOU! The Manual Works Prompter is a simple HTML Application (HTA file), and you can check and modify its content using any text editor including Notepad. Like a Web page, it needs no installation whatever and you can run it immediately from ANY media, including diskette and memory stick. The Manual Works Prompter loads, edits, and saves scripts as simple text files (TXT files). All you need to do is remember to save or move them to the SAME directory as the Prompter HTA file (the so-called Prompter directory). For the adventurous, or those experienced in HTML, you can include several HTML tags which the Prompter will honour when the script is displayed! Full details are in the supplied documentation.
