Explain Everything 2.0

Réaliser une analyse de texte avec Explain Everything - Edulogia Cet article va porter sur l’utilisation de l’application Explain Everything sur le iPad. L’automne dernier, j’ai eu l’opportunité de rencontrer Greg Kulowiec à Boston. Cet ancien enseignant d’histoire est maintenant formateur pour la firme de développement professionnel EdTechTeacher. Selon Greg, Explain Everything est de loin l’application la plus puissante du iPad. Maintenant, voici l’intention derrière cette approche. 1) Votre élève écrit son texte dans Google Drive sur le iPad Il écrit son texte seul ou en collaboration. 2) Le texte va s’ouvrir comme un PDF dans Explain Everything Une fois dans l’application, le texte est sous la forme d’un PDF ce qui veut dire qu’il n’est pas modifiable. 3) Bloquer le document dans le projet Une fois que le document est à la bonne place, il est possible de le bloquer avec le bouton i (inspector). 4) Faire une annotation vidéo Une fois que le texte est bien placé, il est possible d’insérer une nouvelle vidéo dans le projet. 5) Enregistrer la vidéo

Super Teacher Tools Productivity Archives - Teaching In Higher Ed A couple of weeks ago, I was the mini workflow guest for the Mac Power Users podcast, episode 240. Katie and David were in rare form. It was David’s birthday and perhaps nearly the last episode he recorded prior to announcing that he was going solo with his law practice… I spoke about how to use screencasting to give feedback to students in a way that students report seems more authentic, honest, and helpful. It’s the first 15 minutes of their live show, recorded live on February 7, 2015, episode 240. Listener Follow Up I heard from a couple of Mac Power Users, after the episode, which was so rewarding. David M. from Qatar wrote to say that he purposely doesn’t include a track changes document for his students, as he wants to be sure they listen carefully and digest more of the feedback that way. I hadn’t clarified on the episode that I don’t do track changes for the purpose of making corrections to the students’ papers, either.

A Must Have Google Drive App for Teachers May 8, 2014 Since the introduction of add-ons to Google Drive a few weeks ago, I tried several of these extensions on my Google Drive and I am really impressed by the great service some of them offer. Today, I am sharing with you one of my favourite apps to use on Google Sheets. This add-on is called Doctopus. Doctopus is a handy Spreadhseet script which allows teachers to make copies and hand out google Drive files to students listed in a Google Sheet. Doctopus also allows teachers to keep track of their shared documents with the possibility of providing timely feedback to students right in the spreadsheet itself. Watch the video below to learn more about how to use Doctopus on your Google Sheets. BoomWriter | Simply The Best Group Writing Site
