Creator Processing ... Personal $ Svg $20 ✓ Great Video-based Review Activities for End of School Year May 31, 2014 This is the second post in a series of posts designed to help teachers wrap up the school year with engaging tech infused activities. The purpose is to keep students involved in learning until the last bell has rung. What I have for you today is a set of great web tools that you can use with students to create quizzes around videos. Most of these tools support the popular video hosting sites such as YouTube and Vimeo. And though there are minor differences between each tool, the overall process of creating a video quiz is almost similar. Using these web tools, you will be able to create video-based review activities around topics covered during the school year. Best Free Podcasts Minicasts allow you to combine photos with an audio track to create a video slideshow. You can share your minicast with friends on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and beyond. No skills?

Universal Design for Learning by Stephanie Richardson on Prezi Universal Design for Learning The inspiration for Universal Design for Learning: Universal Design for Learning was inspired by the Universal Design movement in architecture (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010a). Architects began making building plans that would suit anyone, so that not only would everyone have access to all buildings, but there would also be choices available. The idea behind Universal Design for learning is the same: design learning activities so they are accessible to everyone (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010a). Free Vocabulary Trainer.

List of 40 FREE Educational Websites According to webometrics, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly. Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education. Two thirds of the US college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can't stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago: "With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write. In the same way, once we have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries, where you can ask any question and be given answers, you can look up something you're interested in knowing, however silly it might seem to someone else." – Isaac Asiov
A Good Tool to Annotate and Create Interactive Videos for Your Class July 23, 2014 ThingLink is one of my favourite web tools for creating interactive images.If you have never used ThingLink before then here is a step by step guide I posted earlier to outlining the entire procedure to create your first interactive visual that can embed videos, maps, text and links. ThingLink has also released a new feature called ThingLink for Video. This new feature is still in beta phase but you can request an early access to try it. ThingLink video allows you to easily add interactive elements to public videos on YouTube. This is a great way to add rich layers of information and resources to videos you share with students. You can for instance add links to websites where students can read more on the topic of the video, or add links to other videos.

What is a definition of short story? A short story is fictional work of prose that is shorter in length than a novel. Edgar Allan Poe, in his essay "The Philosophy of Composition," said that a short story should be read in one sitting, anywhere from a half hour to two hours. In contemporary fiction, a short story can range from 1,000 to 20,000 words. Because of the shorter length, a short story usually focuses on one plot, one main character (with a few additional minor characters), and one central theme, whereas a novel can tackle multiple plots and themes, with a variety of prominent characters.
