Modern Spaces for Contemporary Learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    Think back to how you felt after the last day you spent at a conference or course. If things went well you probably came out feeling enthused by new ideas but also exhausted and fatigued in ways that you don't after a regular day at work. If the presenters have done their job well and you choose your workshops wisely, the day should have been full of learning that resulted from you having to think. Days like this should work our brains hard and it should be no surprise when we are fatigued by such an experience. - So how might our students be coping?

    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

      I really like the capability of combining programs like Notebook or smartboard, power point, PDF's or prezi into a one compatible platform.

  • Presentation Tools Show, don't tell Web 2.0 brings a whole new dimension to the old adage "show, don't tell"—and lets you share your presentations anytime, anywhere, with anyone you like. With Web 2.0 you can push the boundaries of traditional presentations, mix things up, and make learning more engaging than ever before.

      I actually have used Prezi for some classroom presentations; I find it gives presenting a bit more dimension and interest...and frankly, it's fun! I've gotten several of my students to use it, when they didn't have Power Point. It's really a great free tool.

      I used this one during a parent night to get feedback about couple of initiatives that we wanted to implement in our school.

Discovery Education Web2014 : Web 2.0 Tools - Community - 2 views

  • Community Tools Community-building and collaboration are two defining aspects of Web 2.0. A range of tools enable teachers and students to communicate, collaborate and share work. Some, like Edmodo, are designed specifically for educators. This Twitter-like tool lets you create custom mini-communities for classes, clubs, parents, etc and push out assignments, reminders and updates. Others, like GoogleDocs, are for general use but conducive to inter- and intra-school collaboration—in real time. All are easy to use. Case in point: a wiki—the Hawaiian word for "quick"—can be set up in 5 minutes!

      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.

    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.

  • PBWORKS: PBworks is my favorite Web 2.0 tool. I am a high school teacher and I create workspaces for each of the standards that I teach.

Students can access the workspace anytime to get information that they missed or just to review the information. Best of all—it’s FREE!

      I was really glad to see PBWorks listed. I had the pleasure of using this tool for a couple of courses that I was an online student in and it was an amazing collaboration tool! We actually used it to put together research for a topic. It does have it's quarks, which are pretty minimal, but I book marked it because I could definately see myself using this as a tool as an instructor.

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!

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud - 4 views

shared by mcphailj on 28 Jun 10 - Cached
  • Presence Text alone can’t deliver the subtlety and expression required for meaningful connection. If text were enough, we wouldn’t use emoticons, get on planes, or use web-conferencing software. VoiceThreading is a more human way to connect.
  •  
    A tool for having conversations around media. Upload pictures and then add comments. I've seen this used for students around the world to post pictures of their homes and then comment on the differences and similarities. Great language tool because comments are written and/or spoken.

    VoiceThread is a great tool for asynchronous communication about a specific image, document, or presentation. While text is neat, there is something special about listening to someone's voice.
  •  
    VoiceThreads could be created featuring presentations (about a primary document related to immigration) for teacher and student use, encourageing reflection (of historic photograph(s) taken at Ellis Island) by students, and host a debate (about immigration).
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great way to add voice to an online class. Students can create and participate in discussions with voice rather than simply text.

    This, right here, is what I desperately wish my students had in place of Finalsite as a way of creating blogs for their school Mission Portfolios. I know it isn't set up the exact same way, but it would certainly accomplish nearly the same purpose.
