The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”)

The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”)
NOTE: First, Wallwisher, the popular virtual “corkboard” or “bulletin board” Web tool changed their name — they’re now known as Padlet (though all their old links using the Wallwisher name work fine). Now, Corkboard.Me, a similar tool, just announced they’re changing their name, too — they are now known as NoteApp. Wallwisher was the first online application that let you easily place virtual post-it notes on a virtual corkboard or bulletin board, and allow you to post text, images, and/or videos on them. This kinds of apps have many uses. Several similar sites have followed in Wallwisher’s wake, and they have been helped by periodic technical issues Wallwisher has seemed to have (recently, though, they seemed to have fixed them). Here are my choices for The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”): Wallwisher, the granddaddy of this kinds of apps, lets you, with very, very minimal registration, create a “wall” where you can place virtual sticky-notes. Feedback is welcome.

Teaching the Brain to Learn -- THE Journal Research | Feature Teaching the Brain to Learn Here’s how educators can use the latest neurological research to help improve math and science instruction. By Greg Thompson06/02/14 Many educators have heard the old maxim, “If all learning is 0 to 10, then 0 to 1 is the most important.” Brain research backs up this nugget of wisdom, and neuroscientists such as Bruce E. Wexler makes it his business to keep up on the latest brain research, and his analysis suggests that the right kind of early interventions and techniques can change a child’s educational future. According to Wexler, “These systems are not wired at birth, and they’re not determined by our genetics. Wexler’s analysis supports the notion that kids who come to school without healthy cognitive stimulation may not be operating at their potential. Emotion and Learning The idea that the brain must be prepared to learn also applies to emotional states, because emotions influence cognitive abilities.

New Padagogy Wheel Helps You Integrate Technology Using SAMR Model Sometimes a visual guide comes along and it just makes total sense. That’s how I felt about Allan Carrington’s clever ‘Padagogy Wheel‘ which we featured on Edudemic last week. Check out the previous version then view the one below to see the differences. From what I can tell, putting the wheel on this site has generated a bit of buzz and I’m glad we could help spread the knowledge. But I was quite amazed this morning when I saw that the Padagogy Wheel had been updated. This new Padagogy Wheel (which honestly is less about iPads and more about technology integration now) should encourage you to focus on redefining your current standards, the current role tech plays in your classroom, and just about everything else.

3 Simple Ways to Record iPad Screen and Create Educational Screencasts February 11, 2015 In today’s post, I am sharing with you some interesting tips I learned from Jonathan Wylie to help you record your iPad screen and create instructional screencasts and tutorials. The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of creating a screencast on iPad are those popular apps such as Explain Everything and Educreations but the thing with these apps is that they do not allow you to record what you do on other apps. For instance, you can not open Explain Everything and go to Evernote app to record your screen there, once Explain Everything window is closed , recording stops. To be able to navigate your iPad and record this navigation, you will need to mirror your iPad screen to a bigger screen that is your computer. 1- Mirroring apps There are actually 2 powerful mirroring tools that would allow you to project your iPad screen onto your computer. B- Air Server To record your iPad screen from your computer, you can use one of these screen recording tools:

Cooperative Learning: Assigning Individual Tasks to Group Members Introduction When I first started using cooperative learning in my classroom, it was truly on a trial and error basis. And I'm here to tell you, I made LOTS of errors. I finally figured out that I was not giving my students sufficient directions and organizational tools. On their own, my kids determined who was going to talk (everyone), when the talking was to occur (constantly), and just exactly WHO was going to do WHAT (no one). Clearly, I had not given sufficient forethought to this. What follows on this page, as well as the Overview to Cooperative Learning and Grouping Strategies pages, is what I've learned from all my trials and errors. I'm not saying that I've covered everything here, but I am saying that this is certainly a much better way to start this endeavor than what I chose.
