iPads – A Tool, Not Alchemy, for Education The topic of kids and technology is a hot topic again. This would normally be a good thing, if the questions that are being discussed weren’t fundamentally the wrong ones. It is, however, a familiar situation. We are going through a normalization of a new technology, and it will be met in the same way that technology has been met before: with skepticism, doubt and the occasional hint of technophobia. Discussions like these cloud the interesting part—the choices that parents make for their kids.

The 10 best classroom tools for gathering feedback Getting feedback from your students can serve multiple purposes: it can help you understand your students’ comprehension of the material, it can give you insight into what teaching methods work or don’t work, and it can help engage students in their learning process by knowing they have a voice that is heard. Not only can feedback offer insight for both teachers and students, it can be an integral part of group work and classroom time, given the plethora of connected devices in the hands of our students these days. That said, there are a lot of classroom tools available for gathering feedback. You can poll students or have them create a survey for a project, use clickers and other classroom response type tools in real time, get feedback on teaching methods, and more.

Animal Habitats There are some absolutely amazing sites out there for kids to learn about animal habitats. Here are a few of my favorites: Build an Online Habitat is where students choose animals and match them to the correct environment by changing weather, PingPong: Simple, Interactive, Free Q&A App For Teachers I’ve recently met with the creators of PingPong, an app that is aimed at providing a higher level of interaction between teachers and students. It works by simply letting teachers create questions either on the spot (during class), or as a series or prepared questions (exam-style) that students will have to answer, possibly in a limited time. The beauty of the app really resides in its simplicity and the fact that it is free.

This means that it could work with very young children, although I don’t see why it couldn’t be used for adults.
Video scribing, Whiteboard Videos, and Animation Video production - ydraw.com Although this will not get the best results when looking for increased traffic and conversion rates, this technique will provide a way to get an extremely cheap alternative to Ydraw’s whiteboard animation videos. Essential tools include a dry erase board, a camera, a computer, a desk, some dry erase markers, a chair, and a light. With these tools the artist can now set up their workstation. Place the light on the table, along with the dry erase board, and rig the camera to the light so that it can be right above the dry erase board. With the camera hooked up to the computer, all one needs now is for the artist to start drawing with the dry erase markers. If the artist makes a mistake, it is easy to rewind the video filming, erase the drawing sequences and start again.
