3 Presentation Tools Teachers Are Now Using

3 Presentation Tools Teachers Are Now Using
Presentations are more than just Powerpoint or Keynote. While those tools will get the presentation-making job done, there are definitely better options out there, especially for classroom applications, where you’re more likely to use all of the multimedia capabilities than someone showing revenue slides in a business meeting. The most obvious use for a great presentation tool in your classroom is for presenting material to your class. As the teacher, you can keep your ideas organized and your class on track regardless of where the discussion goes (just don’t forget to get back to your presentation!). The multimedia aspect will get your students more engaged than with just a lecture. We’ve put together a short list of some of our favorite presentation tools. Haiku Deck Haiku Deck is a free app that lets users create presentations using professionally designed themes. Projeqt Google Presentations We know that we don’t need to sell you on using Google’s tools. Related:  Undervisning med hjälp av programIPAD Icab

200 stycken på vår kursportal! För drygt två veckor sedan lanserade vi vår nya kursportal. En digital plattform som ger dig möjlighet att lära dig mer om webben. Upplägget är pedagogiskt, du får läsa på och sedan göra lektionsprov för att testa dina kunskaper. När du har gått klart kursen får du ett intyg och även en badge att sätta på din egen webbplats.

10 Best Apps 4 Teachers Most of what we do is for the students. The focus of this and many other blogs and websites is about learning, and rightly so, but there are also apps that will make our jobs easier too. I am talking about that catergory of apps that are designed specifically for the classroom teacher. Those apps that will assist us in the everyday little jobs that need to be done, often on the run and often while 10 other things are also happening in the room. There are plenty and I am sure as more and more teachers gain the confidence to design their own apps, there will be more suitable one to come. Here is a list of apps that you can use to make your job easier. Keynote: $9.99 Keynote for iPad is almost as powerful as the desktop application.

Wikis for Everyone - Wikispaces Socrative and Success Criteria | EdTechSchool I’ve often considered Socrative to be the gateway drug to the world of educational technology for classroom practitioners. It is simple, reliable, and gives you a great resource to judge student progress. You can provide students with instant feedback and you can leave your classes with some readily analysed data and feedback that can inform your planning. If you’re not familiar with Socrative, it is a digital assessment for learning (AfL) tool. But you’re not transforming learning! Now…I hear the cynics ask, how is ‘Socrative’ better than mini-whiteboards or voting cards? At this point, I wish to stress that, I haven’t removed mini-whiteboards from my classroom. But, where Socrative has really worked for me is in recording data that I need to examine later and, as I will discuss below, by providing the most efficient way to give students ownership over success criteria in their learning. Giving Students Ownership of Success Criteria The solution - Socrative So take the plunge! by

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad - By its very design, the iPad promotes consumption. Essentially an interactive mobile screen, the combination of physical form and supporting software-based user interface on Apple’s wunder-tablet suggests watching and listening, enabling you to tear the “monitor” off the desk and take it with you. By lacking a keyboard, input and production aren’t quite as natural. That isn’t necessarily because the iPad can’t accommodate such input, but rather that the software–and our habits as users–haven’t completely caught up with the not-insignificant shift in interface. But it doesn’t have to be that way. One microcosm of the potential of the iPad in learning is the concept of visual recording. Visual recording is what it sounds like it’d be. But executing it in practice–and then doing something meaningful with those iPad-captured images–isn’t second-nature simply because it’s not something you do everyday. 1. 2. 3. 4.

SAMR Model - Technology Is Learning | Learning ... Technology and jobs: Coming to an office near you INNOVATION, the elixir of progress, has always cost people their jobs. In the Industrial Revolution artisan weavers were swept aside by the mechanical loom. Over the past 30 years the digital revolution has displaced many of the mid-skill jobs that underpinned 20th-century middle-class life. Typists, ticket agents, bank tellers and many production-line jobs have been dispensed with, just as the weavers were. For those, including this newspaper, who believe that technological progress has made the world a better place, such churn is a natural part of rising prosperity. Remember Ironbridge Optimism remains the right starting-point, but for workers the dislocating effects of technology may make themselves evident faster than its benefits (see article). Why be worried? Worse, it seems likely that this wave of technological disruption to the job market has only just started. Until now the jobs most vulnerable to machines were those that involved routine, repetitive tasks. No time to be timid
