Home Setting a Goal When You Feel Overwhelmed With Technology Options When I visit schools to facilitate workshops there is usually a mix of folks who are off and running with technology use in their classrooms and folks who are just getting started. When mixed together with those who are off and running, the folks who are just getting started can sometimes feel like they have so much to do to get caught up to their colleagues. In those situations I remind folks that they don’t have to learn it all on their own today. I encourage setting a small goal of getting comfortable with one new thing per full month of the school year. If you can work toward that goal, by the end of the school year you will have eight to ten new things in your teaching playbook. Learning to use Google Apps for Education is a good example of employing this “one thing per month” goal. And always remember this, even if you feel like the kids know more about the technology than you do, you are still the expert on teaching in your classroom.
15 Free Display Graphics to Use with Your E-Learning Courses A lot of rapid elearning content finds its roots in repurposed classroom slides. The challenge is to rework the screens and get rid of the bullet points so they don’t always look like classroom slides. A great way to get out of the PowerPoint look is to create screens that hold content in different ways. For example, if you put a TV monitor on the screen you’re less inclined to use bullet points. So a good way to rework the screens (and get rid of bullet points) is to think of different types of display screens you can use as content holders. WARNING: Course context is everything. With that said here are a few ideas from previous posts and those are followed with some new ones and free downloads. You can download many of these templates (and more) from the E-Learning Heroes community. In today’s post, I thought I’d share yet one more display screen graphic—the projection screen. Here are a few simple projection screen images that I created. Generally, I like to keep the screens simple.
The 3 Best Free Games On The Mac App Store [Mac] But that’s not what I want to talk about today. Instead, let’s talk about the real reason the App Store is cool – the free Mac games! The selection available on the Mac App Store is still a bit slim (58 titles at the time of this posting) and many are ports from the iPhone and iPad, but there are a few gems that can keep you entertained for the low price of free. Alpine Crawler Currently the most popular free game on the Mac App Store, Alpine Crawler seems a bit weird from a distance. It’s a side-scrolling game in which you navigate a truck across terrain. Seems simple, right? Alpine Crawler is a game about momentum. Dink Smallwood Back in 1997 a small, three-man game development studio called Robinson Technologies released Dink Smallwood, a 2D adventure game. Now Seth Robinson, one of the game’s original developers, has ported the title over to Mac OS X, iPhone, iPad and Android, giving the title yet another lease on life.
