Transcript of Using Technology
Google drive gives you the possibility
to store and access files anywhere.
Google drive has 15 GB free cloud storage
Use Docs, Sheets and Slides - very similar to Microsoft Office (free)
Quick office option - edit Microsoft docs
You can also create documents online, share and collaborate.
There are templates and you can create quizzes and surveys
Here are some ideas of how I have
used Google forms in my classroom.
Dos and Don'ts
Using Interactive White Board
SMART board Notebook/Open Sankore
Moodle enhances learning by:
being a great resource which is kept up to date and well utilised
being easy to use
is accessible from anywhere
uses Internet resources
extends learning opportunities outside of the classroom
a place to share resources
Here is my Moodle/iLearn page - http://goo.gl/og6zdq
Benefits of IWBs:
Can be used like a normal whiteboard for technophobes, but the notes are stored
Integrate a wide range of materials from different sources e.g. photos, video, sound, Internet, documents
Easily create interactive quizzes and games to capture learning
Create PDF files which can be printed or integrated into a VLE for students to view after class
QR codes are very versatile and can be used in many ways to engage students. Here are a few examples:
student projects - links to websites such as WIKIs/ YouTube/music etc e.g. video practical use of topic taught, for example calculating paint required to paint a room and produce a presentation, upload onto YouTube
link to your VLE (Moodle) page
provide additional resources to stretch students' learning both in and outside of the classroom
student feedback/exit cards e.g. Poll Everywhere/Socrative
encourage your students to display their class/homework by embedding QR codes in posters
Vocaroo is a free online site which allows you to create audio recordings without having to install software
Support different learning needs, teachers can provide
audio instructions or audio feedback to reinforce written feedback. Students can record stories, revision notes, conversations etc. and submit via email/online forum
What can you do with the code:
email the link or embed the code into a QR code or a VLE
download the audio file as an mp3 for iPods/iPhones for on the go listening.
Here link is a video tutorial http://goo.gl/wwScmP
Poll Everywhere/Socrative are online polling/quiz applications. Your audience can vote by text, twitter or online. They can use mobile phone, computers, or tablets.
warmer - a quick quiz for students as they enter the classroom
feedback on the class - 'What did you learn today?'
Gamify the learning experience - Socrative has 'space race'
Creating a CV
24 hrs - how students spend their time
Do use traditional teaching methods as well.
Do use technology appropriately.
Do ensure class rules are set for proper use.
Do trial the activity/tool before you use it in class.
Don't rely heavily
on technological tools.
Don't add it to the lesson unless there is a clear purpose.
Don't make the activity too complicated.
Don't be afraid to ask you students for help/advice.
Do share your ideas with your colleagues
Encourage students to use the technology in their pockets
Students understand and able to navigate their devices
Improve student's digital literacy - 90% new jobs need excellent digital skills
Personalised learning - anytime/anywhere
Expands and enhances learning - develop 'soft' and 'hard' digital skills
Use their own mobile devices to access and use college systems and access course materials
Capture and upload media, as well as using apps/web based tools such as calculators, dictionaries, QR codes and social media sites as part of their learning experience.

A screencast is a digital video recording that captures actions taking place on a computer desktop. Screencasts, which often contain voice-over narration, are useful for demonstrating how to use specific operating systems, software applications or website features.
How can we use is for teaching and learning?
Instruct students as well as connect people to learn online
The teacher records the lesson/information s/he wants to share, saves the file and sends to students
Students view the recordings in their own time
Promotes flexible learning and students learn at their own pace
Students create their own videos for peer teaching or assessment
