  • Thank you to everyone who took the time to write to our textwall before the session and those who went to the “socrative” pre assessment.At any time during the presentation please use any of the ways to interact with us. Messages are anonymous but we will be displaying the content.The contact details have been replaced by xxxxx in this version.
  • Just in case you are wondering if you are in the right session – Welcome to technology tapas. If you should be elsewhere, too late, we have you now.
  • The object of this session is to provide a taster of how technology can support the delivery of learning by encouraging active learning.We are not going to look at the theory and we are not providing you with all you need to know to implement these ideas. It is more about sparking your imagination….. We hope to post much more information about the session on the community site xxxxxxxxx
  • During induction the xxxxxxx students were surveyed regarding their use and ownership of mobile technology, the results you can see on the slide. The results suggest that it may be possible in the future to channel our students ownership of personal mobile devices to support their learning? This session hopes to look at ways in which we might do this.Warning – in the real world you would not do what we are going to try this afternoon.We are going to imagine that all of you have had an induction session where you have been supported to get your devices on to the XXXX network. You have also had practice at the using the particular method/s of interaction chosen by your lecturers, so you would not be coming in “cold” as you are today.We are taking a giant leap of faith here today, some things will work, others less so. Please do not judge the feasibility of what is possible on how things go this afternoon.We have a very short time so we will move on very quickly from one thing to the next ... Remember this is a tapas, a taste to fire your imagination.Please do interact with us at any time, ask questions, add comments using SMS, email, textwall or twitter – we will be revealing the text wall at times, include your name if you wish.Just a quick word about “clickers” or voting hand set technology. There have been a number of sessions at the LTA conference over the last couple of years about the use of clickers, they have been used during this conference. We strongly support the use of clickers and in the faculty we have 100 clickers which have been used successfully by many lecturers and also by the LRC and others delivering induction.We have even used the clickers together with the turning point mobile app.
  • We hope there is plenty to think about and you have had a few ideas on how you might like to incorporate what you have just seen. If anyone has used any of these tools in their lectures we would be very pleased to hear from you, write to the text wall.Ok we need to move on if we are to taste more of this menu.
  • There are many subjects that we teach that involve the introduction of vocabulary, acronyms, multiple theories, etc that students need to absorb in order to make progress.This slide suggests several ways in which students can actively get involved in the process of becoming familiar with the required terms.On the slide you can see two examples of word clouds, one produced using wordle and the other by tagul. Both represent this session in their different ways. We will look at the difference between them in a moment.Other ways of putting new information into context is the construction or interrogation of online timelines or online glossaries. We may not have time to look at these this afternoon but the links are there on the slide of some examples.Let’s exit PowerPoint and have a quick look at the word clouds.(The next part of the session is outside of PowerPoint)

  • http://www.sapweb20.com/blog/powerpoint-twitter-tools/ Everyone in the audience who has a twitter account and is able to tweet now would you please tweet a greeting to #xxxxxxxx.What we intend to demonstrate is how a lecturer with or without their own twitter account can use twitter in lectures to obtain up to the minute news and views from either their students or from across the world.
  • Here is a second example, (the first example not for slideshare) using sea odyssey to see the reaction of the public to the titanic weekend events in Liverpool.
  • And here is an example using the alternate format, where you can see many more tweets on the same page.
  • http://www.sapweb20.com/blog/powerpoint-twitter-tools/Here is what the live slide looks like with no search terms yet. (This is an image rather than the active slide for slideshare version) Lets put a few search terms in to see what happens. We hope there are some tweeters out there, have you had any ideas on using this slide with your students, please share via twitter or on the text wall.Using twitter for up to the minute news and views#earthquake, #london2012 @number10govNot necessary for lecturer to have a personal twitter accountGet immediate feedback from your studentsIt may be possible to be moderated before display (checking on that)
  • Twitter can also be used as a way of interacting with the students in the lecture in a more structured way.If you have a twitter account please vote in this poll by sending a tweet to @votebytweet followed by the number of your choice, 1, 2, or 3 followed by the key word xxxxxason the slide above. It is not actually necessary to have wifi or internet to tweet, even simple phones that can send an SMS message can be used to tweet, provided you have set up your phone number in your twitter profile.I have put together a couple of videos about how to set up a twitter account without revealing any personal data, or following anyone, if you wish to have a twitter account for the purpose of using it in lectures in this manner and nothing else. There is also a video on how to set up twitter so you can tweet by text message.Ok lets have a look at the votes.XXXXX@votebytweet1 smsvote - this can be used if you do not have internet access (however you need to setup your Twitter account)
  • This probably won’t appear in slide share, the slide can be downloaded from the link

  • This very wet pooch is demonstrating the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion, otherwise known as ....inertia
  • The physics classroom galleries in flickr are excellent examples of how images can be used to make students think about their learning.Why not create a flickr gallery for topics in your teaching area?If we have time to look at the link great if not move on.
  • The quote alone has less impact than the quote with an image……….Note: how the license has been incorporated in the image,If you have been paying attention to the images in this presentation you will have noticed that they all have licence information embedded into the image so all copyright issues are taken care of.
  • Let us imagine we need an image of happy students ...
  • If you have not used it before the xpert website trawls through thousands of images that are creative commons attributed. It incorporates the license info within the image at a click.  Xpert Attribution tool searches Wikimedia Commons and Flickr and provides an easy way to get the image with the attribution information overlaid.
  • Here is a tip why not add the image to your blackboard site as well …… This may help the student to connect the information in lessons to the information and tasks you set on blackboard.
  • At any time during the presentation please use any of the ways to interact with us. Messages are anonymous but we will be displaying the content.
  • This is a screen shot of our vote results with the codes removed.
  • Here are some of the free text comments we collected using polleverywhere.
  • Information correct June 2012 we think! Do check if you want to use these tools.

    • 12. Using images to inspire in depth learning• The Physics Classroom says: This brings us to the topic of inertia. It is a fundamental property of objects to keep on moving however they are moving at a given moment in time. inertia is the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion. And so set an object inlink to the physics Check out the motion and it will obstinately resist a change in its state of gallery on flickr motion. Find an object at rest, and it will obstinately resist a change from its comfortable state of rest. This wet noodle of a dog utilizes this principle of inertia as a substitute for a towel. By rapidly changing the state of motion of its fur, the waters resistance to these changes causes it to be detached from the dog to follow a course of motion of its own. For the dog, this property of inertia becomes another instance of physics for better living. Who needs a towel when you have inertia? Further information about inertia can be found at The Physics Classroom Tutorial. http://www.flickr.com/photos/physicsclassroom/galleries/721 57625278916478
