10 Most Engaging Uses of Tech Integration iPads and iPhones for filmmaking - Learn about film Why use iPhones and iPads for filmmaking? If you own an iPhone, you’ve always got a small, easy-to-use camera in your pocket. It’s great for filming in situations where other cameras would attract too much attention. Video quality can be excellent, so they’re increasingly being used for news gathering and documentary work. You can edit on them, though iMovie is a bit cramped on the phone screen. The larger iPad screen is better for editing, particularly with teams or groups. Both devices can shoot really good quality video in the right circumstances. Why doesn’t everybody film on them? You’ll get soft, ‘noisy’ images in low light, and flare when you shoot into the light. Which iPad or iPhone? Every iPad and iPhone since the 3GS and the iPad 2 can shoot video. The best value iPhone for filmmaking is the iPhone SE. Get plenty of memory: video takes up a lot of space, so 16Gb models will fill up quickly. iPhones have better cameras than iPads and they’re easier to handhold. Do I need 4K?

5 Heutagogical Tips to Empower Lifelong Learners Online Posted by Becky Krill in Educator Tips, Online Education Trends on November 19, 2014 Prior to joining the marketing team at SchoolKeep, I worked as an educational program manager for an experiential learning company. As the company grew, I was forced to take on new, intimidating marketing tasks. I realized I had quite a bit to learn. During my transition to marketing, I became a heutagogic learner in just under 3 months, meaning I was markedly more self-determined, motivated and highly autonomous, without ever setting foot in a classroom. In a world where information is instantly available to us, the educator is no longer the sole proprietor of subject matter expertise.

Defining "active learning" is a bit problematic. The term means different thing to different people, while for some the very concept is redundant since it is impossible to learn anything passively. Certainly this is true, but it doesn't get us very far toward understanding active learning and how it can be applied in college classrooms. We might think of active learning as an approach to instruction in which students engage the material they study through reading, writing, talking, listening, and reflecting. Active learning stands in contrast to "standard" modes of instruction in which teachers do most of the talking and students are passive. Think of the difference between a jar that's filled and a lamp that's lit. Students and their learning needs are at the center of active learning. Using active learning does not mean abandoning the lecture format, but it does take class time. Basic Elements of Active Learning Talking and Listening Writing Reading Reflecting Keys to Success Be creative!

A New Era: Teacher As Coach | LeadUpNow Today’s post is by Elisabeth Bostwick, a passionate educator serving students daily in Horseheads, NY. When colleagues have entered my room, at first glance they thought I wasn’t there. I recall the bewildered look of one administrator that I worked for as he scanned the room thinking I had left it unattended. Typically one of the student leaders in my room will notice and point them in my direction. You see, as a coach I’m beside my learners as I question, reflect and provide feedback. Conflicting Titles While I view myself as a learning coach, my current title reads as “teacher.” teacher noun: a person or thing that teaches something; especially : a person whose job is to teach students about certain subjects. First Known Use: 14th century Definition of TEACHER for Kids: a person who passes on information or skill I interpret this definition of teacher as someone who can stand, speak, demonstrate, and ta-dah!
