Learn to Code for Teachers Part 3, or How I Spent My Summer Vacation - Technology In Early Childhood So this is the third and final installment in my Learn to Code: For Teachers series. See that stack of books in the picture above? That’s my stack of books, and I read them all this summer. I know, it’s not quite your average stack of of summer beach reads.

Energy and Calm: Brain Breaks and Focused-Attention Practices When presented with new material, standards, and complicated topics, we need to be focused and calm as we approach our assignments. We can use brain breaks and focused-attention practices to positively impact our emotional states and learning. They refocus our neural circuitry with either stimulating or quieting practices that generate increased activity in the prefrontal cortex, where problem solving and emotional regulation occur. Brain Breaks A brain break is a short period of time when we change up the dull routine of incoming information that arrives via predictable, tedious, well-worn roadways. Our brains are wired for novelty.

8 classroom uses for holographic technology Eliciting engagement and creating excitement among learners is every educator’s raison d’être. One emerging technology, still in its infancy but moving quickly toward classroom application, are holograms. As you may recall from science class — or your favorite sci-fi film — holograms are 3D images formed by light beams from a laser or other coherent light source. The multi-dimensional appearance results from the interference pattern of two beams reflecting an object. Linking Projects, Ideas, and Concepts with Popplet This is a guest post from Beth Holland at EdTechTeacher.org which is an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Recently, when looking for a new tool that would work across multiple platforms (Windows, Mac, & Chromebook in particular), I stumbled on Popplet. While I had used the free Popplet Lite iPad app as a mindmapping tool, I had been unaware of the truly awesome potential for using Popplet on the web! At first glance, Popplet seems like most other mindmapping tools such as Inspiration, Bubbl.us, or MindMeister. However, it has three critical features that separate it from the rest (on top of being FREE). First, not only can you create objects with text, but Popples can also include links, drawing, images from either your computer or the web, and video from either YouTube or Vimeo.

Psychological scientist Jamie Jirout and team analysed data from 847 children aged 4-7 from across America who had taken a commonly used IQ test for youngsters. It then looked at the home life of the children to find those who did best were more likely to play with traditional toys at home rather than sitting in front of a screen all day.

Zaption - Video Based Quizzes and More Zaption is an interesting video assessment tool that I tried when it was in beta last fall. This afternoon I received an email from the Zaption team asking me to take a look at the new version of the service. I was impressed by what I saw when I tried it this evening. Zaption is a tool for creating video-based quizzes. Unlike some services like TED-Ed that have students watch a video then answer questions at the end, Zaption allows you to display questions for students to answer as they watch a video. To create a quiz on Zaption you start by creating a "tour" in your account.
