Transliteracy- QR Codes and Art

Transliteracy- QR Codes and Art
Transliteracy is defined on Wikipedia as The ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks. The modern meaning of the term combines literacy with the prefix trans-, which means “across; through”, so a transliterate person is one who is literate across multiple media. Ryan Nadel, in an interview on Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning, defines transliteracy even further: “The most fundamental notion of transliteracy is the ability to adapt. It’s creating a literacy and fluidity between mediums that’s not tied to space or modality.” I agree with Ryan: Transliteracy is closely related to “fluency“: Let me share a transliterate learning opportunity with you that I created (Art, iPads, QR codes, Language Arts and Digital Storytelling) in collaboration with our Art teacher, Mrs. Related My World of Reading- Part I 9.

Transcribe. Transcrire des fichiers audio en texte Transcribe est un outil en ligne qui permet de transcrire de l’audio en texte. Pour être plus précis, l’outil va vous faciliter la vie au moment de la transcription. Tous ceux qui ont eu un jour le besoin de transcrire en texte l’enregistrement audio d’une conférence ou d’une interview savent comment la tâche peut-être longue et ingrate. L’outil miraculeux qui ferait tout automatiquement n’existe pas ou en tout cas pas encore. Malgré les progrès considérables de la reconnaissance vocale cela reste encore de la science-fiction. Transcribe propose un système de dictée vocale pour des transcriptions simples, mais il offre surtout un outil de traitement de texte optimisé pour vous permettre de passer à l’écrit un enregistrement sonore. iPaddling through Guided Reading It's hard to contain my excitement and enthusiasm when it comes to Guided Reading and having a 1:1 classroom.

Mobile learning: improve your English anytime, anywhere Mobile devices and apps are changing the way people learn English. Teacher Emma Segev Opens in a new tab or window., who won last month's British Council Teaching English blog award, shares her ideas for learning English on the go. Comment below this post if you have further tips. Technology and language learning 5 Popular Tools That You Might Not Realize Work on Android Tablets There are certainly many more solid apps available for Android tablets than there were a few years, yet there are still many times when someone will ask me if one of my recommended tools is available for Android. In no particular order, here are five of my most frequently recommended tools that will work on Android tablets as well as on Chromebooks, iPads, and in your laptop’s web browser. Padlet is probably my favorite tool for quickly creating an online space in which students can post short notes, respond to questions, and share links to things they’ve made and or discovered. Padlet now offers an iPad app, but they don’t offer an Android app. However, Padlet does work quite well if you just open it in the web browser on your Android tablet.

An iPad Alone Does Not Make an Instructional Program If Apple’s stock depended at all on the number of districts purchasing the iPad, it would be a strong buy right now. At least that’s how it seems, when every district leader I work with has one on his or her desk and every district technology specialist asks me about iPad compatibility. Don’t get me wrong, I love my iPad. In fact, I come from an iPad-only family. My husband, parents, brother, and sister all have them—with different colored covers so family vacations don’t become confusing. Tips for Using iPads in the Classroom While for some teachers, iPads in the classroom are already a familiar part of everyday life, as of Pearson’s 2014 Student Mobile Device Survey, only 16% of students attended schools that provide tablets 1:1. For all the news stories and chatter in the educational industry about using iPads in education, many teachers haven’t gotten a good look at just what the technology can do for their students. But there’s reason to believe that could well change in coming years. The same Pearson report found that:

Irresistible: Why We Can’t Stop Checking, Scrolling, Clicking and Watching – ... The school near the GP practice where I work held an internet safety evening recently, subtitled “How to Keep Your Child Safe Online”. It was in the school hall, hosted by police officers, and explained the role of something called the “Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre”. The blurb on the leaflet promised parents of children between five and 11 would learn more about the dangers of the internet, and in particular, social media. I’m not sure when it became normal for kids to have to cope with malicious online messages, and be savvy about paedophiles masquerading as peers.

Redefining learning with iPads More teachers are getting hold of iPads for their work, but how can they go about getting the most out of them? Primary school teacher and iPad-innovator Lee Parkinson discusses how teachers can use the device to bring very specific subjects to life. The fatal mistake schools make when deploying mobile technology is thinking that by purchasing the hardware, that’s the hard part done. In fact, the easiest step in a school’s iPad journey is buying the technology; the successful use of the technology is determined by what schools do after this.
