Making Lesson Recap Videos with Screencastify | Sustainable Teaching. Making video recaps of my lessons has revolutionized my teaching. I am so grateful to Chris Aviles for suggesting it at EdCamp New Jersey. A parent told me she wishes every teacher made video recaps. A learning support teacher uses them to help my students study in her instructional support classes. Students who need multiple opportunities to learn and absent students benefit the most from video lesson recaps. I have documented how I use SnagIt to make recaps on my Chromebook. Watch this video where I discuss how I use Screencastify: After installing the extension… Before starting the recording be sure “Desktop” is selected and “Embed webcam” is not. “Desktop” makes sure Screencastify captures the entire screen. When you stop recording, Screencastify puts the video file in a Google Drive folder. Overall, I have been thrilled with Screencastify. Video lesson recaps have tremendously benefited my students.

How to Teach Students to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information. The volume of information available on the Internet is astounding, and it just keeps growing. Business intelligence company DOMO estimates that 571 new websites are created every minute. With that amount of information, it can be difficult for students to separate the gems from the garbage, but, fortunately, we can help them navigate online information easily and efficiently. What Students Currently Think of Online Information Image via Flickr by USACE Europe District Students today don’t know a world without the Internet, but that doesn’t mean they know how to think critically about what they see online.

Coiro suggests strategies to help students to effectively evaluate what they see on the Internet, practice refuting what is on the Internet, and cross-check claims. Identifying Good Content There are a few checks and balances to ensure that online content is indeed credible. Learning to Use Websites Effectively Students may not understand the differences in quality between websites. Learning Standards & Common Core State Standards Crosswalk.

Teachers And Social Media: Finding Your Comfort Zone.

By Dawn Casey-Rowe, Social Studies & Educational Technology Teacher Teachers And Social Media: Finding Your Comfort Zone “You’re a teacher. You shouldn’t blog.” My friend was serious–and concerned. Social media has the potential to strike fear in the hearts of many educators. As more and more teachers reach out in the public sphere, they wonder if this leaves them overexposed, and if so, the best practices that they should use.

“Well,” I reply, “I want them to use my Learnist boards, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t say in public on my blog, though I’m not sure the topics are of interest to them. The payoffs are huge. I now have a PLN, (Professional Learning Network) of national experts in education, tech, writing, blogging, social media, sustainability–any interest I develop. If you’re just jumping into social media, you might appreciate the following Learnist resources.

Interpersonal learning , personalized learning, second life learning , 3d learning, collaborative learning and virtual learning , these are just some of the few buzz words you would be be reading so often in today’s educational literature.

Things have changed , old methods and pedagogies are no longer relevant.

Designing Rubrics for Assessing Higher Order Thinking. 7 Habits Of Highly-Effective Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology. 7 Characteristics Of Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology by TeachThought Staff Ed note: This post has been updated with an updated visual from Sylvia Duckworth, who took our graphic from alwaysprepped.com (now getalma) post and created the above visual.

It is also sporting a new title, as the “habits of” is a trademarked term. As such, the new graphic and phrasing appears below. You can also see Sylvia’s tutorial on sketchnotes here. In most ways, teachers that use technology in the classroom aren’t much different than those that don’t. Any teacher worth their salt assesses, and then revises planned instruction based on data from those assessments. They manage their classroom in a way that works for them, create a positive learning environment, and (great teachers especially) collaborate with a variety of stakeholders to make sure every humanly possible attempt is made to meet all students need. 7 Characteristics Of Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

A Project-Based Learning Cheat Sheet by TeachThought Staff Like most buzzwords in education, “authenticity” isn’t a new idea. For decades, teachers have sought to make student learning “authentic” by looking to the “real world”–the challenges, technology, and communities that students care about and connect with daily. You’ve probably been encouraged in the past to design work that “leaves the classroom.”

Reach beyond the school walls. We’re going to take a closer look at progressive approaches to teacher planning whenever Terry Heick can be convinced to finish that series. The function of this image is to act as a kind of brainstorm–to help you get your own creative juices going to decide what’s most important when designing an authentic project-based learning unit–audiences, technology, habits, purposes, and so on. You obviously don’t even have to use these categories; they are just a sampling of the kinds of thinking that can help you make the shift from academic to authentic learning.
