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.

    "Edmodo helps connect all learners with the people and resources needed to reach their full potential."
    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.
    online outlet for student collaboration
    Students can take quizzes, share ideas, work on assignments and discover new resources.
    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.

Does PowerPoint Help or Hinder Student Learning? | Faculty Focus - 3 views

  • oo often we forget how significantly teaching practices shape learning experiences and PowerPoint is a perfect example.
  • Most studies find that PowerPoint has “no measurable influence on course performance and minimal effect on grades
  • Yet students often report a favorable view of PowerPoint, saying it helps them with learning, content organization and note taking. The students in this cohort confirmed these positive effects

  • the software organized lecture content and indicated which points were most important.
  • And then there’s the potential of PowerPoint to oversimplify the material
  • What students need to know is reduced to a bulleted list of five items described in five words or less
  • also worry that using PowerPoint encourages passivity.
  • PowerPoint does not easily accommodate digressions or a change in order that responds to what’s happening at the moment.
    • Debi Griggs
      Although I seldom use PPT in classes, when I do it is to accommodate digressions. The points help me return to the major points of the activity or lesson.
    Ideas to keep in mind when one depends too much on PPT

    Free Wiki classroom.
    Free Wiki space for educators.
    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". ;)
    Want to encourage online collaboration? Look no further than Wikispaces. This is just one of the line wikis which allow the public or only members to collaborate together. I have used this for graduate classes and it really makes it easy to share information. Don't want the ads? Apply for an ad free educational site.
    A free host site for wikis. Can be used as a Geometry proof tool.
    If you haven't already heard, this is a free place for students to share links, photos, documents, videos, podcasts, etc. It is also a place to have student discussions online.
    Great site for students to create online Wikis. A colleague has used it to have students create review materials for AP exams.
    A colleague has used this site to have students create review materials for AP exams and I am going to try it this year with my AP Psychology class. I have had students use Wikis on my class Moodle page and they seem to like the collaborative aspect of it because they don't feel overwhelmed by the workload.
    Great site for student collaboration for rojects and such
    Here is a free wiki service that I could use with my students! 
    A great tool for student webpage and project collaboration
