Arriva WeSchool, la piattaforma per creare lezioni collaborative

Classe ’90, nel 2012 ha fondato Oilproject, probabilmente il più seguito sito di e-learning in Italia con 1,6 milioni di studenti che ogni mese cercano ripetizioni e video lezioni. Oggi ha lanciato WeSchool, una piattaforma per “aiutare i docenti a fare didattica collaborativa in classe”. La piattaforma permette agli insegnanti di fare lezioni molto diverse dal classico schema frontale: con WeSchool, infatti, si può passare da un video di Youtube a un corso di inglese di Duolingo, si può integrare un Google Docs con una ultim’ora di una testata internazionale.

Ma che cosa è Chimpa?

Nuove apps per Animatori Digitali: Chimpa, per una didattica interattiva

Una piattaforma ‘didattica interattiva’ che consente di gestire e controllare i tablet di classe. La futuristica app associa, immediatamente, il device del docente con quelli degli studenti in classe. Il suo ideatore, Antonio Curedda di Xnoova – la società che ha sviluppato la piattaforma (composta, oltre a lui, da Roberto Tramelli, Alessandro Molinari, Giacomo Donati, Corrado Gaviglio, Paolo Malpeli, Paolo Moschini, Luca Bleve e con la partnership di Ligra Srl) dichiara a proposito di Chimpa: «L’abbiamo progettata ascoltando le esigenze dei docenti e dei ragazzi del liceo scientifico Respighi di Piacenza che vogliono ottenere il massimo dalle nuove tecnologie adottate dall’istituto.

Chimpa offre una suite di servizi finalizzati a migliorare la didattica in aula». L’interessante applicazione include diverse applicazioni, dedicate agli insegnanti, “Chimpa teach” e agli studenti “Chimpa learn“. Impari social learning. Procomún. Creating a Geek Culture in the Classroom.

I always hated Smurfs.

Creating a Geek Culture in the Classroom

I know, I know, hate is a strong word for something so benign as a blue troll in white overalls, but my disinterest made me an outlier in my fourth grade class. I was a girl who chose to watch Dungeons and Dragons on Saturday morning rather than Strawberry Shortcake. In other words, I was a geek. But the times they have changed. Some of this shift came about because of the embrace of technology and those who built its networks. No longer is "geek" associated with chicken heads and sideshows or taped glasses and suspenders. However, this new era does not mean that it's the geeks' turn to rise up and give wedgies to anyone not interested in Battlebots. Cultivating "Geekdom" -- Vital to Classroom Culture Every school year, I begin the first semester with the following quote from actor/director Simon Pegg: Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection.

September 5, 2015 The popular educational platform ClassDojo released today a new interesting tool called ‘Class Story’ which enables teachers to ‘easily and safely share updates and photos from class with parents’.

Class Story- A New Excellent Platform for Teacher-Parent Communication

Class Story is an excellent alternative to a public classroom website or blog and teachers can use it as a secure and private space where they can communicate with parents and engage in the learning of their kids. Fostering teacher-parent communication is the driving philosophy behind Class Story and as, Don Liam (chief product officer of ClassDojo) stated, it reduces ‘the friction in communicating with parents by providing a quick way to share important updates, photos, and all the moments parents would love to see but previously couldn’t.' Being part of ClassDojo app, Class Story works and syncs across any iOS/Android device and any web browser for both teachers and parents.
