Make Teaching History Fun with Video - 20 views

Animaps - 20 views

  •  
    Animaps extends the My Maps feature of Google Maps by letting you create maps with markers that move, images and text that pop up on cue, and lines and shapes that change over time.
    When you send your Animap to friends it appears like a video - they can play, pause, slow and speed up the action!

    I've got a new boss these days and she's getting us to use graphic organisers and reading strategies and such things. I was sceptical at first, but now I'm a convert. Do many people use graphic organisers in class?

    How do you use them mate? I found some excellent charts here http://moodle.egrps.org/course/enrol.php?id=136. Password is 'monty'.

    I use them for thinking maps, to show how concepts and ideas are related, as flow charts when necessary, as a way to show comparisons and contrasts and as a way to show umbrella terms and then related terms.
  •  
    I'm definitely a convert. I now spend the first half of each lesson going through the content and the second half skills-building using graphic organisers, summarising, etc.
