Social Media & Technology in the Classroom | Facebook Twitter Youtube

Connecting with students is important; what better way than bringing in social media to your lessons? Each product is versatile to the subject you teach, and the content you want to get across. Want your students to draw up a storyboard for a short video? (Vine) What about analyze a character in a novel? (Facebook) Brainstorm a topic? (Pinterest) Talk about a news story? (imgur) … Snapshot of history? (Instagram) Discuss the viewpoints of stakeholders? (Reddit). Conversation between important historians? (Skype). Broadcast of an event from the eyes of someone else? (Periscope) Write a review of a business, like a restaurant? (Yelp) Or maybe even ask and answer a question? (Tumblr)Some of these adaptations use replacement names of the social media site in a font that students will recognise (for instance, Fakebook instead of Facebook and Instasnap instead of Instagram).Contents-Technology Usage Log-Vine-like Video Storyboard Bundle-Pinterest-like Board Template Bundle-Youtube-like Video Template-Facebook-like Bundle-Imgur-like Image Template-Instagram-like Image template-Twitter-like Graphic Organizer Bundle-Community Opinion (Reddit-Like) - Have You Read It?-Skype Exit Slip-Tumblr Ask a Question-Yelp Review-Periscope Broadcast-All About Me Worksheet-Spotify Song List-Technology Homework Choice Board

DCF for Primary

DCF for Primary

Rob-bot Resources presents a complete guide to support primary school teachers in the delivery of the Digital Competency Framework (DCF) in Wales.Following the Donaldson Report (2015), the need to improve digital competency within students across Wales was identified as being as important to the development of students as literacy and numeracy. This document provides practical solutions as to how primary teachers of years 3-6 can confidently deliver these requirements across a broad range of subjects. Where possible I have included "unplugged" solutions, i.e those that don't require a computer to fulfill the requirements, so that teachers of all backgrounds can feel confident in the delivery of the framework.***Please leave a review! ***

Delivering a Presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint Feedback Activity

Delivering a Presentation using Microsoft Powerpoint Feedback Activity

In this interactive activity you display the Powerpoint and learners review and take notes to identify areas of improvement. As the facilitator, you explain that Charlie Brown has just created a presentation and welcomes feedback before delivering to an audience. Tell students that they will be giving feedback at the end of the presentation. There job is to look at each slide and see if there are areas for improvement.Write notes as they go for feedback at the end of the presentation.This is an extremely useful activity that gets learners thinking about visual aspects of their own presentations. Each side has notes for the trainer to indicate the errors on the slide.I have used this with many learners. It is an effective activity and generates a lot of good discussion.
