Student screencasting

Posted on May 13, 2009 at 9:22am 0 Comments

In a previous post I mentioned how I stumbled upon 2 science teachers in Colorado who provide their students with screencasts of course material. Inspired by their success I began using CamStudio to create screencasts where I modeled how to solve chemistry word problems. I have a LaPazz pen tablet that allows me to write on my computer desktop and in microsoft programs like Word and Powerpoint. I posted the screencasts on Youtube so that my students… Continue

Evolutionary basis of ADHD

Posted on March 25, 2009 at 1:23am 0 Comments

I found the Discover March 2009 article "Are we still evolving?" by Kathleen McAuliffe very interesting. The article discusses evidence for human evolution that has taken place over the past 50,000 years. As an educator I found it particularly interesting when the writer discussed the possible evolutionary basis for ADHD. The notion that ADHD and the patterns of behavior that are associated with the disorder, could have at some point, provided our… Continue

Merit-based pay an Obama inititiative

Posted on March 14, 2009 at 8:34pm 3 Comments

I just read this article from edweek that discusses President Obama's educational intitiatives. Certainly merit-based pay is something many of us dedicated, motivated educators get excited about, but I think the devil is in the details here...Of course I want to make more money and have my work recognized, but I have trouble seeing how this type of program would work. What criteria will be… Continue

A practical and inspiring use of vodcasting

Posted on March 9, 2009 at 7:44am 0 Comments

I teach high school science at a small international school in Busan, South Korea where 90% of our students are ethnic Korean (check out BFS here). We have a substantial ESL population. The attention level of some of these students is very low, which I believe in some cases is linked to their comprehension level. I was inspired by stumbling apon this website that used vodcasting as… Continue

Second Life in science teaching

Posted on March 8, 2009 at 9:59am 0 Comments

I just found this article discussing the use of Second Life in teaching science. I have no experience with Second Life but must admit my interest is piqued. Curious if other teachers have tried using SL in their teaching(?).

Hi Cameron. I am fairly new to online teaching, but I will share what I know. My f2f and online classes are basically two different schools. I use Moodle to deliver my online classes. Right now due to numerous constraints (technical, philosophical, etc) our classes are jazzed up independent study courses. The vast majority of the students are taking the classes to recover credit. As you can probably imagine, this is not the ideal clientele for online learning, but we do not control who takes our classes. High schools from just about the entire panhandle of western Nebraska can enroll students in our school. Students take our classes online while still attending their regular school.

I do use some of my lessons with my face to face students, but generally I do not have them do the same work. The work online is geared to be completed individually. I like for my students to work in groups in my classroom.

I'd be glad to talk to you more about this. If yo have any more questions please ask.

Hi Cameron,

Kids do print them, but right now they only come out as a very clean 8.5 x 11 sheet. In the future, we will have other size options and you'll be able to order prints of the glogs right at our site. Right now, lots of kids put them on their lockers too.

When you are done creating a glog OR if you see one you like, you can very easily embed it into a profile by hitting the "share" button at the bottom right of the glog. This is available for most of the laregest social networks like facebook, myspace, bebo, hi5, etc., but not available yet on virtual world sites. If a site allows html embedding, then you can also grab the html and paste it into any site that allows.

Let me know if all of this makes sense.

Thanks!
Andrew
