Create Netflix-style learning with screencasts

Create Netflix-style learning with screencasts
Netflix gives us video at our fingertips. What if we created video in class as much as we watch it on Netflix? Here’s how. (Netflix logo used under fair use.) We have had students turn in documents, slide presentations and spreadsheets digitally for a long time. We’re comfortable with them. In the past, video has been a different story, though. Simple videos for everyday assignments just weren’t worth the hassle. Screencasts change all of that. A screencast — a video that records what’s happening on your computer screen — lets students demonstrate and create visually and with their voice. Screencast videos are often as easy to create as most anything else we do in class. And they’re as easy to turn in as a document with Google Classroom or a learning management system like Canvas or Schoology. Netflix is like a library of videos at your fingertips. Have your students started demonstrating learning with screencasts yet? In this post, you’ll see … Top screencast tools to use: 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3.

Digitala verktyg stärker undervisningen I min undervisning använder jag många digitala verktyg för att förbättra och effektivisera redan fungerande pedagogiska metoder och arbetsformer. De flesta moment jag har i min undervisning kan stödjas av digitala verktyg som motiverar, intresserar och utmanar eleverna. Genom att använda digitala inslag som en naturlig del i undervisningen kan jag förbättra förutsättningarna för att lyckas med ett formativt arbete. Efter utvärderingar och diskussioner har jag tillsammans med eleverna kommit fram till att de blir betydligt mer motiverade, engagerade och intresserade när digitala inslag är med i undervisningen. Jag är övertygad om att informations- och kommunikationsteknologi, IKT, har stor potential för bättre lärande, men det räcker inte med att tekniken utvecklas.

Review the Settings: Fem favoritverktyg för ökad elevaktivitet! – Patricia Diaz Förra veckans vabbande ställde ju till det lite (men eleverna hade faktiskt arbetat på bra med de uppgifter jag lade ut) men i onsdags var jag på plats igen och kunde leda lektionen som jag brukar. Får ofta frågan vilka digitala verktyg som jag använder dagligen (eller ja, under varje lektion) och efter onsdagens lektion var det lite extra tydligt vilka som är några av mina favoriter för att öka elevaktiviteten! Gruppslumpare Idag använder jag mig av Schoolitys ”egna” gruppslumpare Randomizer som fungerar utmärkt i Chrome. Eleverna är vana vid att den används av alla lärare på skolan så inga konstigheter för dem att sätta sig i nya gruppkonstellationer varje lektion.

Fake It To Make It I'm so glad you asked! There are a number of good articles on how to identify fake news, including this one from How to Spot Fake News. In addition, please: Do your research before sharing! If you see something questionable, look it up! Sometimes, just a quick Google search is enough. m.facebook Back in 2015, when we published our lesson plan Fake News vs. Real News: Determining the Reliability of Sources, we had no way of knowing that, a year later, the Oxford Dictionaries would declare “post-truth” the 2016 word of the year; that fake news would play a role in the 2016 presidential election; that it would cause real violence; and that the president-elect of the United States would use the term to condemn mainstream media outlets he opposes. Back then, to convince teachers that the skill was important, we quoted Peter Adams of the News Literacy Project on the “digital naïveté” of the “digital natives” we teach.

Copy Comments to Google Classroom Docs and Slides Several months ago I shared a blog post about "How to Force a Docs Copy WITH Pre-Loaded Comments to Help your Students". The post explained a URL trick you can use to not only make a copy of a document, but to also copy any comments you have made in the Doc. This can also be a creative way to provide additional resources, links, and assistance to your students in their projects. Instead of just getting a copy of a worksheet, HyperDoc, study guide, or other document, students can also have comments pre-loaded into their copy of the document. These comments can provide them with: Additional directionsHyperlinks to resourcesVoice recordings from the teacherA checklist of items for the student to resolveAnd more The only drawback was this trick does not work in Google Classroom.
