LectureScribe

LectureScribe is written by Brian C. Dean, an assistant professor of computer science at Clemson Univeristy. Audio Bug Alert: The latest versions of Adobe's Flash player managed to break the audio playback for LectureScribe-generated files (and also for several other prominent applications, e.g., Camtasia) by making playback sound garbled, with periodic squawks and other artifacts.

I'm not terribly thrilled with Adobe for their reluctance to address this issue in a timely or transparent manner, but in the meantime I've been able to figure out a work-around, which is incorporated into the latest version of LectureScribe. Please let me know if you encounter any further audio issues. Important Note: 26-minute time limit!

Why I Love and Use Learnist (and Why You Should Too)

I’ve had an account with them since it was in invite-only beta form and now, luckily for everyone, anyone can create an account with their Facebook credentials or with a valid email. What Is Learnist? Learnist allows you to create “learn boards” that are dedicated to a particular topic of choice. For example, I teach Advanced Placement (AP) French through the College Board. The course is divided into six themes. You don’t just have to limit your learn boards to traditionally educational topics. Recently at my school, we’ve started an Online Educational Resources (OER) initiative to reduce spending on print textbooks. Why I Love it! Once you have an account, you can follow people with similar interests, and they can follow you, you can “like” learn boards or individual “learnings” (the individual resources posted on the boards).

Does this sound like Pinterest? Is there an app for that? What can Learnist do for you? Sign up for Learnist at About Franca Gilbert.

Patterns: Learning, Thinking, Creating

The brain seeks and sees patterns, but when asked to find patterns, many people become uneasy. (Shelley Carson suggests that up to 80% of people find this type of thinking “uncomfortable.”1) This conundrum is the result of effort. When the brain instantly sees a pattern, it seems like a new insight has been sparked. When the brain has to search to find patterns, the rationalization begins. Patterns and the Brain “Patterns” was a major theme at the November Learning and the Brain Conference in Boston. Patterns are the cement of memory. Patterns and Teaching While interesting or even good to know, what do these research-based conclusions about patterns mean for education? Students need to learn how to dig deep and recognize patterns.

Searching for and identifying patterns across disciplines should be a common classroom practice. References Images ’741 – Cogs – Pattern’ Celing’ ClassTools.net: Create interactive flash tools / games for education.
