Digitala verktyg – supertips Det går att använda digitala verktyg på ett strukturerat och ändamålsenligt sätt, till exempel för flippar, språkutvecklande arbetssätt och formativ bedömning, som ger goda resultat (Läs om STL-studie här). Men för många är vägen dit fylld av ”digital stress”, det vill säga man har förstått vad verktygen kan tillföra undervisningen, men insatsen att lära sig verktygen är just nu alldeles för stor. Därför blir det oftast ingenting. En sätt att göra berget lite lägre är att introducera enklare digitala verkyg regelbundet, till exempel med ett tips i månaden. Utan inbördes ordning. Skapa ett konto på Youtube (eller använd befintligt Googlekonto) och spara favoritklipp i spellistor som senare kan delas. Klipp från Youtube kan startas vid önskat läge. Ta en bild av tavlan efter en klockren genomgång. Använd elevernas texter i undervisningen. För att lätt hitta till rätt del i dokumentet kan ett index skapas längst upp i dokumentet. Använd ”Tillägg” i webbläsaren.

8 Tips to Power-Up Your Classroom Presentations Last month, I attended a Back to School Night for parents, sitting through presentation after presentation by teachers, some with slides that helped make their presentation a delight to listen to, and others . . . well, that's why I'm writing this blog post. The goal of a classroom presentation is to aid you in effectively conveying information in a way that allows students (or their parents) to remember what you said. Unfortunately, for some, the presentation becomes a crutch, and they begin to rely on the slides to tell their story, rather than to help them tell the story. I've been creating presentations using software like PowerPoint and KeyNote for 20 years, and I've learned a lot about how to most effectively communicate. 1. It's a common myth that better presentations use fewer slides. The number of slides in your presentation is irrelevant. In the movie Amadeus, the Emperor of Austria complains to Mozart that his music has "too many notes." Figure 1. 2. Figure 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
