In Touch: Using videoconferencing to connect your class to the world Video conferencing can be used to engage students in learning, build cultural understanding, to learn from experts and reach homebound students. Here are several examples. Connecting Students to Build Cultural UnderstandingTeachers assist students in creating a list of questions to ask from any content area to build a better cultural understanding and build relationships with students from other countries. Students can learn about the history of that country, cultural foods, climate, religion, celebrations, language, school and other information from the country.Check out the innovative project Michael Kaechele did with his 7th grade students using Skype:
Education 4 Kids, Inc. For each sentence you will be provided three possible selections for the word in boldface print in the sentence (a fourth selection, "No Answer" is provided, and selected. It is the wrong answer as there is always an answer.). Check the selection that is the meaning closest to the usage for that word. A Good Example of a Student & Teacher Blog - And How to Make Your Own On Monday afternoon I had the pleasure of seeing Elisabeth Alkier give a presentation about the book review blog that she developed with her students and her school's librarian Dlo Duvall. The Bode Book Review is a blog authored by students in Elisabeth and Dlo's school. The purpose of the blog is to provide other students with short reviews to inspire them to read new books. In Elisabeth's presentation she explained the ground rules that students had to follow in order to contribute to The Bode Book Review. Two ground rules that stood out to me were that students couldn't give spoilers in their reviews and that when it came to commenting students were not allowed to correct each other's grammar and spelling.

Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Interactive Video Tools for Engaging Learners It's no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference. That's why I've been really excited to see a wave of new (and mostly free or low-cost!) tech tools recently that enable teachers to take favorite clips and make them more valuable for educational use. Whether you use videos to flip your classroom or you just appreciate the power of video to engage kids, maybe one of the tools in my playlist below will help you go deeper in 2014.

About Us PortfolioGen started as a project between two dedicated teachers from New Jersey. We were looking for way to create an online presence that would allow us to share our skills and achievements with our peers and administrators. Sure, there were options available to build webpages and share documents but nothing that gave the features, customization and simplicity that we were looking for. At first, this was a very basic site that we both used for our academic advancement but soon grew into a labor of love and pride as we noticed more and more people inquiring about the site, sending positive feedback and offering up suggestions. ePortfolios with GoogleApps This Google Site has been set up by Dr. Helen Barrett to focus on the use of Google Apps to create ePortfolios. On this site, there are instructions on how to use the different elements of Google Apps to maintain e-portfolios. Are you a K-12 educator wanting to use Google products with your students? I recommend that you don't set up "regular" public Google accounts for them... instead, set up a GoogleApps for Education domain where you can enroll your students and control access.
