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.

10 ways icons from The Noun Project can impact learning Icons can help students construct understanding and remember new ideas. The Noun Project has the hook-up. Here’s how! (Icons via Images are powerful and very brain friendly. The majority of people think in pictures — and some think exclusively in pictures. At times, including photos, illustrations and other images can be considered silly and unnecessary in education — almost as if adding them is like putting up decorations in learning. Adding visuals to instruction and to products of learning can help learning stick long-term. There are TONS of places to get great images to incorporate into learning. Photos can convey an idea, emotion, concept, etc. well. And my favorite source for icons is The Noun Project ( What is the Noun Project? The site bills itself in this way: “Icons for everything. Just load up the site and you’ll see a variety of what’s available: A steak. The icons are available to use in two different ways: There’s also educator pricing! 1.

Digital Storytelling: What it is… And… What it is NOT | Silvia Tolisano- Langwitches Blog I was lucky to have shared my childhood bedroom for a few years with my grandmother, when she had come to live with us after an illness. At bedtime, she would tell me stories of her parents and three brothers and growing up in East Prussia, fleeing to the West after WW2 and the things that occupied her mind. I was hooked on storytelling. The fascination grew when technology became available and opened up possibilities that were just not possible before. I would give anything to have been able to record my grandmother’s stories and have shared them with my own children years later. Humans are natural storytellers. Maybe as part of a natural process, we tend to stick first to the familiar and “substitute” our task (see Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model). Over the years, I have seen in classrooms and created myself many stories, that are: Examples: Examples: Christopher Columbus creates 21st Century ExplorersListening, Comprehension Podcast Example: Collaborative Storybook: Florida Explorers

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. Pedagogiken och hur man integrerar tekniken i undervisningen är det avgörande för att stärka undervisningen och få önskad effekt på lärandet.
