Playposit, aumenta el "engagement" de tus alumnos con vídeos interactivos - Educar y jugar Si eres docente, y utilizas habitualmente vídeos en tus clases, presta atención, porque la herramienta que vamos a tratar hoy te puede interesar. Con Playposit podemos ir un paso más allá, añadiendo al vídeo distintos tipos de pregunta que, en mi opinión, incentivan al alumno a prestar más atención y a asimilar mejor los contenidos. Esta herramienta es también perfecta si quieres dar tus primeros pasos en la metodología Flipped Classroom, que cada día va tomando más fuerza. Yo mismo estoy poniéndola en práctica con algunos grupos, y no me está funcionando nada mal. Pero de esta metodología, y de mi experiencia con ella, ya hablaremos en otro momento. Vamos a centrarnos en la versión gratuita de Playposit que es bastante completa. Panel principal de Playposit Una vez que nos hemos dado de alta como profesores, accedemos a nuestro panel principal: Escritorio principal de Playposit Como vemos, es bastante intuitivo.

Psykopaint - Create and paint amazing art from photos The Paperless iPad Classroom with the Google Drive App Student Learning and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator This file discusses briefly (1) the four dimensions underlying the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and (2) several teaching approaches that will appeal to different MBTI profiles. The 126 item Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Form G, is the most reliable method for assessing student learning style. The MBTI provides data on four sets of preferences. These preferences result in 16 learning styles, or types. A type is the combination of the four preferences. The most common MBTI type for business undergraduates is the ESTJ, the Extraverted-Sensing-Thinking-Judger. The MBTI instrument should be administered in the first or second class period by the counseling center at your school. Extraversion (E) versus Introversion (I) This preference tells us how people "charge their batteries." Extraverts find energy in things and people. The majority of undergraduate students are extraverts. The majority of university faculty are introverts. Teaching Extraverted Students

LISTLY + THINGLINK Do you like making lists? Well, it's a way to curate your content and share with other people. This post is aimed to focus on two webtools which I've fallen in love with:LISTLY and THINGLINK LISTLY is a site used for making lists of websites and videos. THINGLINK allows you to tag images linking it to other websites, sound files, videos or even texts. My inspiration for this post came with a pinterest post which shared a list curated by Lisa Johnson entitled "Thinglink EDU examples" which I've embedded below. Thinglink EDU Examples View more lists from Lisa Johnson As LISTLY is a collaborative tool, I believe it would be perfect for classroom usage where the whole class can contribute in collecting content about a specific topic.

Thinglink convierte tu imagen en contenido interactivo Una de las reglas que aplico cuando maqueto cursos eLearning es intentar que el concepto “Visual” esté siempre presente. En la educación de hoy en día en la que los alumnos se encuentran más atraídos por lo visual debemos aprovecharnos de aquellas herramientas que nos permiten convertir el contenido en visual para acercarlos a un aprendizaje más significativo. Hoy os traigo Thinglink una interesante herramienta que combina el concepto visual e interactivo para explicar una temática en particular. ¿Qué es Thinglink? ThingLink es una herramienta que te permite convertir tus imágenes en un gráfico interactivo. Si en alguna ocasión has utilizado Glogster, Thinglink parte de una idea similar. En definitiva una idea fantástica para explicar un tema de una manera diferente, más interactiva y más visual. En empresas como Ikea ya han descubierto cómo buscarle el uso comercial pero también tiene un uso educativo. Haz clic en la imagen para ver un ejemplo ¿Cómo funciona? ¡Y mucho más! Related

iPad in the Classroom – Can we make it simpler? | With many educational institutions choosing to use tablets for learning, it can be quite intimidating for teachers when faced with so many applications. The diagram below serves to illustrate that less than 20 core apps can play a significant part in the learning process and hopefully temper any trepidation. (with thanks to Greg Hughes @deepexperience1 for his ideas and input) The apps indicated serve to enhance or modify existing practice with scope to be transformational. Twitter and Skype are part of many students’ lives, with immediate contact and communication a must. A PDF annotator and Skitch (with the ability to annotate images) might take a little more getting used to, but are invaluable to the educator with tablets in the classroom. Perhaps the most important collaborative tool however is GoogleDrive. (with thanks to dc12norfolk) As the video illustrates, GoogleDrive is a very powerful learning tool with transformational possibilities for students and educators alike. Like this:

20 Must-Have Educational Resources For All Teachers Edudemic often features posts providing a list of top resources for a particular category. Recently, the site posted the names of the LAUNCHedu finalists chosen by the SXSWedu® Conference, offering even more resources for the Edudemic staff to consider! On March 7, 2012, they will choose winners after a full day of presentations by the finalists. There are so many sites and programs on the Internet already, but this competition just goes to show that the need for educational resources is still great. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. I thought and pondered, considered and reconsidered, and researched and revised a list in my head this week. First, however, I created a wordle using some of the lists the editors have created recently. I divided my resources into categories, based on my interests as a teacher.
