      These are 'influential presentations' but far better suited to the higher level thinker than the Year 6 class. YouTube is better for variety of video.

      Just like Facebook for groups!

      A great way to look at it

      These are indeed 'influential presentations' but better suited to higher level thinkers - not an upper primary class. YouTube offers better suited, more catchy videos.

      I totally agree Christabell!

      You may be familiar with Wordpress as EduBlogs or other platforms using Wordpress.

      While TED looks to be useful and informative for adults, I have found it difficult to find any presentations relevant to the grade 5 and 6 level.

      Love the variety of videos available! (May need to be sifted through and checked to be sure of credibility)

      TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It is a series of videos of 'great minds' speaking on their area of expertise. You could find small snippets of really good stuff - but YouTube has shorter, catchier, more visually stimulating stuff

Visible Thinking - 11 views

  •  
    "Developing thinking dispositions-whether it is a disposition to strive for understanding, to figure out the complexities of fairness, to seek truth, or hunt for creative solutions-occurs within a cultural context. It is within cultural contexts that we develop our patterns of behavior and thinking that become our habits. Therefore, Visible Thinking uses an enculturative approach to develop students' thinking, immersing students in a rich culture of thinking in schools and classrooms."

    "What is CEQ*ALL? What happens when students are left to their own devices? In a WiFi Web 2 world, it could be many wonderful and amazing things? Web 2 empowers the self-initiated to learn more and more personally than ever possible before. But many students, well-trained in the "playing school" see free time a chance to goof off, to escape the boredom or avoid the stress. But what if students were truly free to learn as they wish in a supportive environment? CEQ*ALL provides a research-based, common sense approach to guiding personal learning to maximize intrinsic motivation, achievement and sophisticated thinking."

What Teachers Should and Should Not Be Posting on Their Classroom Webpages - 9 views

  •  
    More and more teachers have the opportunity to cut a slice of the Internet pie and share content with administrators, students, and parents. Many, however, are unsure what to do with this slice or how to serve it up to waiting guests. Fear not, I have a few suggestions that might get you started. I've broken it down to "Should" and "Should Not" lists in hopes of making it easy.

    A fairly basic description, but handy for people new to using a ClassBlog. The exciting part is when you go from ClassBlog to ClassPortal.

    "When you collaborate on an outline you and your collaborators get on the same page right away. The outline structure lets everyone see where you're coming from and puts your ideas in context. Meetings get shorter. Lectures and presentations are more enlightening. Project plans actually become useful."

    AS technological devices have become more portable and more popular, they've enhanced our connectedness at work. But they have also led to a greater degree of incivility - a trend that is damaging our workplace relationships.
  •  
    Increasingly schools are having to deal with this issue, in classrooms with students and with colleagues in meetings. At conferences delegates seem to be hiding behind their screens and I wonder what level of engagement is taking place between them and the speaker/s? What messages are being sent and received..on a number of levels?

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover | Video on TED.com - 6 views

    "Today's math curriculum is teaching students to expect -- and excel at -- paint-by-numbers classwork, robbing kids of a skill more important than solving problems: formulating them. "

    I know my students are learning how to use a text book, take them outside and measure/photograph a problem and they are left hanging. This is a great view on how to get students to discover knowledge. It is a powerful tool.
