8 Wonderful Blooms Taxonomy Posters for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Le... - 0 views

  •  
    Some inspiring examples of posters (actually more like infographics) about Bloom's Taxonomy. This may give you some ideas for your own posters. BTW...the blogger is a graduate student, and in 2013 published over 1,100 blog posts! That sound like a lot, but it is only four a day...doable if you 'don't have any family responsibilities'. I wouldn't recommend it. ;)

    Gulsum mentioned that she is using an interactive timeline (http://www.tiki-toki.com/) as a web-based material to teach tenses. Very nice idea. This is a new timeline I hadn't seen before, which produces a 'mashup' of maps and a time line -- very neat idea. One idea to use with students is to get them to create a short personal history of their family.

Amazon Storybuilder - 0 views

  •  
    Neat tool to create a 'storyboard' by Amazon. In BETA, so there could be bugs, but it looks like it is free. You do need an Amazon account -- which is also free.
  •  
    You could have used this to sketch out the flow of the use of the instructional materials for the design and development report. Teaching applications -- would be a great way for students to develop a role play, etc. I think there is a mobile APP for this as well.

How did English evolve? - Kate Gardoqui | TED-Ed - 0 views

  • What is the difference between "a hearty welcome" and "a cordial reception"? In a brief, action-packed history of the English language, Kate Gardoqui explains why these semantically equal phrases evoke such different images.
  •  
    Bulent's comment about TEDtalks for education prompted me to share this link, about the evolution of English. It shows you how TEDed has been developed for specific educational purposes. Notice that there is a introductory video, a short quiz, and then a 'think deeper' page with more resources to follow.

    Bulent -- thanks for pointing out the educational value of TED talks.

    Nice link -- it is a bit dated, however. These were the APPs from 2012. But, sometimes the 'oldies' are the 'goldies'.

    Hi! I discovered how to delete the comment with all the gibberish. You do have to be careful with DIIGO when highlighting with a mouse--especially on a web page, it is easy to accidentally highlight more than you intended.

    The 99U provides actionable insights on productivity, organization, and leadership to help creatives people push ideas forward.

    Hmmm...Interesting site. It looks a bit like TEDtalks in terms of the format of the videos (around 15 to 20 minutes in length), but the focus appears to be using social media to help people develop their own creative ideas. The Conference area is an interesting way to share ideas--it seems to have attracted a number of very creative people.

Swiss political party tries to ban PowerPoint | Technically Incorrect - CNET News - 0 views

  • "I have an operating principle that always helps me: I don't want to be right, I only want the best result. [In] over 14 years of public-speaking training, I have noticed that the use of [a] flip chart beats PowerPoint in 95 [out] of 100 cases. This is not wishful thinking on my part but proven experience."

Recommended Websites and Articles about the Uses and Misuses of PowerPoint - 0 views

  •  
    "Some of the following resources (particularly the articles) offer devastating criticism about PowerPoint. Some of the authors believe that PowerPoint is the worst thing ever created and that it's just a high-tech projection tool used as a quick replacement for more thoughtful presentations. Other authors advocate the usage of PowerPoint, focusing on its rich visual nature and its role as an educational and informational tool. Whether you love, hate, or don't care about PowerPoint, this computer software is here to stay. The following resources explore the dos and don'ts of using PowerPoint."

Teaching, Playing, and Programming: Why I Don't Use PowerPoint For Teaching - 0 views

  •  
    "Ok, I'm a freak. I admit it. I don't use PowerPoint for teaching. Well, hardly ever. Once or twice a semester. Around my institution-and across the country-that puts me in the tiny minority. I know this because my students find it unusual enough to comment on. (Update: Since I wrote this, PowerPoint use in the classroom appears to be on the decline, at least at my institution. Hooray!)

    Why do I take this heretical position? Part of it is that PowerPoint doesn't mesh well with my personal teaching style. But mostly it's because PowerPoint is just too hard for me. Oh, not making slides. That part's easy. I mean that creating a PowerPoint presentation that effectively supports my goals in the classroom is too hard. It's way too much work. Some people can-I tip my hat to them-but me? I'm just not good enough to do that."

Teach Naked? No. Use Digital Tools, not Powerpoint. « 21k12 - 0 views

  •  
    " In it, a Dean at SMU announces his plan to require teachers to "teach naked" by banning computers from his classroom.  (The video above is an interview with Dean Bowen. )  Research cited here includes this nuggett: "59 percent of students in a new survey reported that at least half of their lectures were boring, and that PowerPoint was one of the dullest methods they saw."  No argument here.  Bowen is admirably passionate that classtime be used for more active student learning: questioning, discussing, debating ideas with their professors."

Anti-PowerPoint revolutionaries unite - FT.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Actually I've been quietly doing something for years: I've been declining to learn how to use the ubiquitous piece of software. As a presenter, I'm a PowerPoint virgin, though as an audience member I've been gang raped by PowerPoint slides more times than I can count.
    And what have I got from the experience? It is hard to say because my default reaction has been to blank it. I can't remember one single slide that I've ever been shown. And as I must have been shown hundreds of thousands of them altogether, a hit rate of zero seems rather on the low side. This doesn't mean I've never sat through a good PowerPoint presentation. But when I have, it has been because the person speaking managed to get a message across despite the distracting visual clamour going on behind them."

Banning Laptops and Questioning PowerPoint | Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom... - 0 views

    "So here's a pedagogical aid that certainly has many pluses to it in adding color to lectures with videos, photos, audios, and yes, bullet points that can give a huge lift to dry presentations. Yet the trade-offs in getting students and policymakers to think through issues and come to grips with messy problems are substantial, according to critics."
