    Video Tools The Video Tools feature is something I would need to think about using. I have numerous years of video producing, shooting, editing, and narrating. But putting together high quality video presentations is a lot of work, and very time consuming. However, I do understand there are quite a few persons who are "visual learners". For them, I would take the extra time to create video presentations and utilize them here, if needed. I am very interested in the online quiz feature associated with Video Tools. Dave@LaCrosse

Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 4 views

    • Kait Sanford
       
      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.
    • Rebecca Brink
       
      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.

Using Diigo in the Classroom - Student Learning with Diigo - 9 views

  • One common problem of student computer use in schools is access to student work from home. Not every school provides a way for students to access their school data. In such cases, if students create bookmarks at school, they will not have access from other computers.
  • Using Diigo, students can bookmark important websites and access them from school, home, the library or any internet-connected computer. Students will always have access to this data.

    After taking E-Learning for Educators I decided to try Diigo in a face to face course I work on. Many students have really appreciated it, especially those who don't own laptops and work from various school computers. For our two week term break we've asked each student to bookmark two articles with a short explanation why they have selected it as well as reesponding to at least one that someone else wrote as a way to encourage extensive reading. It has been fascinating to see the articles they are selected (these are Lao students preparing for university study in Australia) and their reactions to it. I've also set up a Diigo group for teachers at my school as a way to share articles that previous we'd print off or email around. Thank you E-learning for Educators for introducing me to this great tool!
  •  
    I should just add that I love getting the daily digest of updates from this group and often go directly to those articles, even if I don't always make it back to the group site.
  •  
    What a great idea to create a Diigo group for the teachers in your school. Yet another way to share and create a community with your fellow faculty members. Thanks for sharing!

Flipped Classroom A New Learning Revolution - 3 views

  • Flipped Classroom is an inverted method of instruction where teaching and learning take place online outside of the class while  homework is done in the classroom. Advocators of this approach believe that this is the ideal method of instruction in our digital age. They basically build their judgement on the following facts :
  • Flipped Classroom shifts the learning responsibility and ownership  from the teacher's hands  into the students'.  Students tend to perform better when they control when, where and how they learn. Teachers no longer dispense knowledge but rather guide and direct while students are the real active learners  Teachers create animated videos and interactive lessons and lectures and students access them at home in advance of class even. In this way all students can re-watch the video tutorials whenever they want. Classroom time can be geared towards data collection, collaboration, and application. Class becomes a place for students to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning. Flipped Classroom also "allows teachers to reflect on and develop quality and engaging learning opportunities and options for internalization, creation, and application of content rather than just fluff or time filling assignments."
  •  
    It's interesting how the concept of a "flipped classroom" is a "new" learning revolution. Has anyone heard of Kolb and experiential learning, or the Montessori method, or the work of Dewey? These "flipped classroom" theories have been around for years.

    I love this web site for suggestions for great books to read for my book clubs. You type in titles or genres you or the kids have enjoyed in the past, and they give you recommendations. (think Pandora for books) I have two accounts..one for my student book clubs and one for my personal reading pleasure. One thing I love is it will make a "book shelf" of hot reads in html code that can then be copied and pasted to your library web site so that kids can see suggested reading.

Prezi - Presentation Software - 30 views

  • "Coolest online presentation tool I have ever seen"
    • Dave Kunkle
       
      A super cool alternative to PowerPoint. Gives students the opportunity to collaborate on a presentation, rather than having to email it back and forth to work on it. This is an excellent presentation tool.
    • S S
       
      I love Prezi. It is engaging and it allows an individual to upload pictures and videos without worrying about whether or not they will run. Students love that it is not PowerPoint, too!
    • Patricia Priske
       
      Some of our students love using this tool. The end product is fun to watch; occasionally produces motion sickness.

      Prezi is a great tool for students that is similar to powerpoint. Unlike powerpoint students can work on a presentation together in different locations. Students can also access the presentation from prezi without using the same computer the presentation was made on or having to save it to a USB. However, the other computer will need to have a internet connection. When creating a presentation, you can create it on the same computer online or off which is nice. A great tool for students to use in group presentation projects!

      This would be a great tool to use for presentations at the health department. It would also be useful in presenting information to the community when doing grant work. Also accessible anywhere. I like that it is different than PowerPoint. Cloud-based: Information is stored and retrieved on many different social media platforms. For students: This would be an excellent way to gain practice and experience in a fun and educational way and prepare them for the workforce.

    Prezi is PowerPoint on steroids. I used it to present at a state conference last November. Check out David Warlick's newest Prezi on literacy.
  •  
    Create presentations on the Web. Free version available as well as Student / Educator versions.
  •  
    This is a new way to present information - it seems to be more active on the screen than power point. The nice thing about prezi is that it is free for educators and students and you can create your prezi offline. Prezi's can even be embedded into blogs.
  •  
    Awesome tool for designing presentations. Offers a large canvas that you can design, animate, and add multimedia.
  •  
    A colleague built a course introduction for students in this and I can see that it has lots of potential.
  •  
    This is a great presentation tool that zooms in and out and really helps the audience see the connection between ideas and the 'big picture'. I have yet to use it myself but I've enjoyed watching TED talks that use it.
  •  
    I'm going to have fun with this - thanks Kris!
  •  
    Prezi now has a PreziViewer tool for the iPad. This should be fun!
  •  
    A good tool to use to improve one's public presentations.  This seems to be especially needed for today's teenagers in schools.
  •  
    Visualize your ideas. Pan Left, Move Right, Zoom-in on a detail, or Zoom-out to show the big picture. Insert images, videos, YouTube videos, PDFs, or other media to make your prezi highly visual. Choose from our collection of templates and themes to personalize your prezi. Present online or download and show your prezi anytime, anywhere.
  •  
    A really cool twist on boring old presentations!
  •  
    I can't wait to substitute my "original" note format with Prezi! I think this will work outstanding with my Smart Board!
  •  
    Great tool to zoom in on specifics or create a second path of detail. Also allows students to work on presentations from wherever they are located.
  •  
    Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery.
  •  
    This is very cool. I wonder how long it would take to learn. If it is reasonable, it would be well worth it.
  •  
    Have a colleague who uses this to teach nursing pharmacology. Great for visual presentation of process and decision making.
  •  
    I've seen others use this, but want to learn more
  •  
    I can see art, photography and design students enjoying this tool. It seems easy to manipulate and customize with their own work.
  •  
    This looks like an interesting tool to explore. I wonder about the difficult level for untrained ESL students.
  •  
    A collaborative presentation tool that is much more engaging that PowerPoint and that allows students to create presentations online or offline, interact with other students in their own classroom or around the world, and present from anywhere to everyone.  
  •  
    Prezi is similar to powerpoint but with more editing tools and capabilities. It's a nice tool for students because unlike PowerPoint, students can work on a presentation together from any location. The ability to access the presentation from any computer connected to the internet gives it capabilities PowerPoint doesn't have. You could also save the presentation on a laptop or USB. Students can also work on the presentation offline which is helpful if a student doesn't have access to the internet for several days.
  •  
    I use this for presentations in my class all the time! The students love it because it is something different besides just using powerpoint slides.
  •  
    Great alternative to powerpoint; coworker uses and really likes it
  •  
    This can be used instead of powerpoint.  Can be viewed as public and created by anyone with internet.
  •  
    I would use this presentation tool to design lessons that are engaging and interactive; especially time-on-task activities that require focus and application.
  •  
    Prezi is a presentation tool that has to ability to mesmerize K-12 students. I have used it to show the steps students need to complete for projects. This tool can also be used to show relationships between math concepts such as fractions and proportions.
  •  
    A tool I've seen and have wanted to try - now here it is! I hope to use it to create engaging presentations for my new smartboard that can be differentiatied according to the student or group I'm teaching.
  •  
    This can be a great presentation tool. Some of the animations should be used sparingly as they can be very jarring!
  •  
    I was introduced to Prezi last summer and had an opportunity to create a presentation that was used to introduce our PE curriculum to parents on Open House night. Our department received incredibly positive feedback from the parents as the presentation allowed for greater engagement than PowerPoint and I found it relatively easy to embed pictures and video.
  •  
    A cloud based presentation application.  
  •  
    This is a bit of a cheat since I've already been using Prezi. It's a great tool and very intuitive if you've used PowerPoint in the past. The audio narration is easy to add with Audible (also free), and there are many templates provided.
  •  
    Prezi - looks like an interesting tool to try for presentations. Recommended by my son who used in college.
  •  
    Takes presentations to a new level.  Particularly suited to complex topics that involve recursive processes.  Would work well as a means of helping my students better understand the writing process and the research process in our class.

    I feel that wikispaces offers more options for free than other online blog/wiki applications. I am able to host more pages and users than in PBWorks. Permissions can be set independently by page. These options are important to me since I am trying to build more collaboration of students across grade levels. I could delete student pages when they leave me to go to the high school, but isn't it way cooler that their info and account lives on so they can still participate? With the easy management tools, I can easily make sure everyone's contributions are on the "up and up". ;)
