Value of Low Tech: Paper Slide Videos (cross-posted from PlayingWithMedia.com) I’m working with a middle school geography teacher on some technology integration ideas for his curriculum. His students are studying Africa in upcoming weeks. We are modeling a low barrier creative process that requires deep level thinking & a focus on content. That’s exactly the reason I’m recommending “paper-slide videos” to the 7th grade teacher I’m working with now. Check out the full video by Lodge, it’s six minutes long and worth watching in its entirety. I’ve added resource links for paper slide videos to the “Quick Edit Video” page of the Mapping Media to the Common Core website. Thanks to Linda Clark from Piedmont Schools in Oklahoma, who shared “Paper Slide Videos” in February at EdCampOKC.

create barcodes QR DataMatrix You can encode either a link to a website, a message to a friend, or your contact details. Then turn the information into a mobile barcode, one that can be printed on stationery, advertising or packaging, a t-shirt, or even built into a website or a Facebook page - and read by an i-nigma enabled mobile device. Creating a mobile barcode is easy. Select what kind of barcode you want to create (QR Code or Data Matrix), then type in the web address (URL) or text you want to encode, and watch the mobile barcode being created, instantly. When you're finished, give it a title, and then scan, print or save it. The following requirements must be followed to ensure your mobile barcode will work effectively: Barcode size - Minimum 2cm x 2cm. White space surrounding the barcode - for best results, we suggest at least 4mm. of white space around the barcode. Scanning distance - A 2cm x 2cm barcode can be scanned from 10cm away.
5 Tech Trends that Could Supercharge Education in 2016 Science-fiction author William Gibson once said, "The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed." The technologies of tomorrow are already being tested in select classrooms today, laying the seeds for the future of how students could learn. With 2016 fast approaching, technology analysts have been busy prognosticating the top technology trends. A few of these technologies have already made headway into education, and others are poised for mass distribution, with the promise of ground-shaking change in their wake. We’ve reviewed a few of these trends through the lens of how they could affect classrooms in both K–12 and higher education. Virtual Reality (VR) Adds New Dimension to Learning VR is shaping up to be one of the largest technology turf wars of 2016. At ISTE 2015, representatives of Google Cardboard and Samsung's Gear VR were on hand to demonstrate how the technology could change how students learn. Google is already on the case. The support is certainly there.
