eduMedia – Science in action! How To: Create an Interactive E-Book with Google Slides | Mr. Kamrowski Working in a one-to-one school district, where every student is provided with a device such as an iPad or Chromebook, can be a great opportunity of freedom for teachers and students. The device serves as an efficient tool to create and curate information, as well as, a flexible environment to share content. No longer does an individual need to negotiate with textbook publishers and be locked into the confines of the perception of the authors of a company when it comes to the content and methods that should be used to teach a specific skill or understanding. Why Google Slides? The easiest and most effective tool I have found to create e-books is Google Slides. How to Use Google Slides as an E-Book Creator Step 1 Decide the layout of your e-book. Step 2 If you are like me, you will want to create some consistency with your layout. Step 3 Add your content. Step 4 Share the e-book with your students and others. Take Your E-Book to the Next Level Question: Do you use e-books in your classroom?

Start het schooljaar eens op een 21e eeuwse manier! Leerlingen leren kennen en leerlingen elkaar laten leren kennen is elk jaar weer één van de leuke activiteiten die een docent aan het begin van het jaar mag doen. Er zijn ontzettend veel voorbeelden van hoe je dit kunt doen en de meeste docenten zullen zo hun eigen voorkeuren hierin ontwikkeld hebben. Misschien is het wel eens tijd voor wat nieuws en tijd voor iets dat wat beter past bij de huidige leerlingen. Het zichzelf laten voorstellen door leerlingen kan tegenwoordig namelijk ook op een ‘21st Century Skills‘ manier, ofwel door vaardig gebruik te maken van moderne informatie en communicatie technologie.

Vind je dit wat?
SmART Ideas: Create Your Avatar SmART Ideas: Create Your Avatar Have you ever listened or seen a commercial and felt like it was speaking directly to you? If so, you’ve been hit with what marketers call “the perfect avatar”. When advertising teams create a concept, they do so with an image of what their ideal customer looks like, what they say, how they say it and what’s important to them.

In today’s video tip, I’m sharing how to use this idea of creating an avatar to better understand and craft character development. Like this? Need that template?
