EdTechTeacher How To Start Using Augmented Reality In Education - from Beth Holland on Edudemic Augmented Reality (AR) allows teachers and students to extend the physical world with a virtual overlay. Whether you have iPad, Android, or a smartphone, scanning a trigger in the physical world with an AR app allows a new layer of information to appear. This information could be a link to a web site, a video, an audio recording, or even a 3D model. 14 Open Source Photography Tools In a recent article for OpenSource.com, JT Pennington shares his favorite open source tools for photography enthusiasts.

Creating Video Tutorials for a Flipped classroom A Flipped Classroom is a teaching model which reverses traditional methods. Instruction is delivered at home through interactive websites, teacher-created videos or content and moves the homework style learning to the classroom. Class time is used for creating tasks, exercises and problem solving while the teacher is present to assist and give immediate feedback whereas the homework is designated for learning content and students can form questions about what they have learnt to prepare for their next lesson. This allows the teacher more time to interact with the students. Some teachers like to create informative videos or ask students to create the videos for younger students. These can be made using screencasting software and some apps, such as:

Teaching Strategy: Fishbowl The “fishbowl” is a teaching strategy that helps students practice being contributors and listeners in a discussion. Students ask questions, present opinions, and share information when they sit in the “fishbowl” circle, while students on the outside of the circle listen carefully to the ideas presented and pay attention to process.

Fishbowls make excellent pre-writing activities, often unearthing questions or ideas that students can explore more deeply in an independent assignment.
