  • I copied and pasted the pre-service schedule (Spanish) to do this. It took under 30 seconds to do.
  • Took out HSS, but left in lunch. Used official UT orange color.
  • Go over the apps on this, esp. the bus, directory, library, maps -- nice because if you have location services set as “on” you can tell how far the next bus is and actually see it moving as it moves. New feature to app, “pushes” grades to students, need to hide column when you are inputting grades unless it’s okay for students to see them IMMEDIATELY.
  • Thanks Rosie for this tip!
  • Idea from Harriet -- can follow her, delicious-looking healthy recipes.
  • This slide counts down by 5 second until 3 minutes, and then it goes down by second.

  • Button timers countdown in 1 second increments – above are 6 different timers for 60secs, 45secs, 30secs, 20secs, 15secs, 10 secs. Each timer is constructed from a series of shapes piled on top of each other, and animated to disappear at 1 seconds intervals.To copy a timer, select the entire pile of shapes by clicking and holding the left mouse button whilst drawing a rectangle that completely encapsulates the timer.Note – it is possible to have multiple timers (possibly of different colours) on the same slide as each works independently of others.

  • This bar timer, will start when anywhere on the slide is clicked. The bar will move from left to right and the word ‘End’ will appear at the end, accompanied by a ‘Deep Gong’ sound. It is possible to change the duration of this timer to any time, by entering the animation settings, and changing the timing for ‘rectangle 3’. Note the time has to be entered as a number of seconds – so if you want 2mins & 30secs – this is entered as 150 (60X2 + 30 = 150).
  • This ‘sand timer’ will start on a mouse click anywhere on the slide. The ‘sand’ will drain from the top section to the lower section and when completed will show the word ‘End’.To change the timings of this timer, you need to enter the animation settings, and change the timings for the Isosceles Triangles. There will be 2 that need changing (to the same amount) – one animates the top triangle emptying, whilst the other animates the bottom triangle filling.When you change the timings these have to entered as a number of seconds.
  • These timers appear initially as a cream, coloured circle. The timer is initiated by clicking on, at which point the circle will fill up in a clockwise direction with the colour you see above.At the end of the time, a bell will sound.It is possible to change the timings of the timers by entering the animation settings and changing the timings of the relevant ‘Oval’. Note the timings have to be entered in seconds.It is possible to have multiple timers on the same slide as these work independently of each other.
  • These digital clock timers countdown from either 2 minutes, 1 min 30secs or 1 minute. The timings of these cannot be easily changed, although the colour can be by simply selecting the entire ‘pile’ of shapes that makes them up, and then formatting the colours.There is a bell timer at the end of the countdown, if this is not desired then enter the animation settings, and delete the animation that ends .wav from the animation listing.

  • Tech Tips for the classroom -Kathi Wong Fall 2013
  • Most of the information in this presentation is available on my blog, tecnolang.com The presentation itself can be downloaded from slideshare.com (search for kwong4) Questions: email kwong4@utk.edu I’ll repeat this information at the end of the presentation.
  • A free service which allows users to send and receive messages via smart device or computer limited to 140 characters. The “tweets” are open to anyone (in the world) to see. Uses hashtags (#) to track messages. sample tweet: Having fun and learning a lot at #MFLLpreservice! Twitter http://www.teachthought.com/social-media/60-ways-to-use-twitter-in-the-classroom-by-category/
  • Bringing characters to life: At California State University-San Marcos, students in a literature course use Twitter to bring Twilight characters to life, choosing characters from the series to personify on Twitter. A teacher in Illinois, used Twitter to have students post comments from Dante to his beloved Beatrice from each of the nine circles of hell and one from before or after the journey. Inspirational quotes of the day: Allow students to become more familiar with Twitter, and exercise reading and writing skills by having a student post an inspirational quote tweet each day, preferably relating to course content. Twitter puzzles: Tweet a puzzle each week, giving a prize to the first student who shares the correct answer. A Twitter story: Students can take turns tweeting stories together, using a hashtag to keep it all together as each student takes a turn to tweet the next line. Find foreign pen pals: Students can use Twitter to communicate with students in a different country, learning about their hobbies, home, school, and more. Track a word or event in the FL. Set up a foreign language news stream. Keep foreign language students informed of current events from relevant nations while simultaneously challenging them to use their translation skills by keeping a specific news feed. http://www.teachthought.com/social-media/60-ways-to-use-twitter-in-the-classroom-by-category/
  • Instructions: 1. Read the tweets and underline the cultural practice associated with the end of summer. 2. Visit the links (at the bottom) to learn what these practices are about. 3. Connect the tweet with the link which describes it. 4. Write a tweet (at the bottom) about a practice in your community associated with the end of summer. Zambombazo http://zachary-jones.com/zambombazo/ Examples: First one says Labor Day signals the end of summer. Another says it is marked by the parties at Barajas. Another mentions ads in the paper for school supplies from a famous Spanish department store. He put this together, apparently, by using the search terms “fin de verano” (end of summer).
  • 1. Students can snap a picture of your slide. 2. Students can record or videotape your lecture. 3. QR codes* can be used on a flyer for students to get -- and save -- more information or on a Word document to get answers. 4. Conduct research in the classroom. 5. Clickers/polls http://web.appstorm.net/roundups/18-awesome-survey-poll-apps/ 6. Google maps/photos 7. Use Foursquare to take attendance.** What kind of information can a QR code store? A QR code can store many types of text information, including: A website URL Contact Information A phone number A geographic location A text message to be sent to a phone number A calendar event http://www.bethel.edu/news/clarion/articles/2012/april/onion-foursquare Potential uses of smart phones in the classroom *A blog which shows how to create QR codes: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/29449/How-to-Create-a-QR-Code-in-4-Quick-Steps.aspx http://serenacarpenter.com/?p=1191**Pros/cons of using Foursquare for attendance:

  • UT Apps to check out… Free - 83
  • Instructors can’t see info*; students can. Students can’t see info; instructor can. Differences among: “Show/Hide to Users” “Hide Column” “Delete Column” Grade Center tips Gone for good. *“Hide Column” is useful if you have a lot of columns, are completely done with some, and are tired of scrolling left and right to see them. You can get these “back” in “manage columns.”
  • Click on “+” sign, then, “Tool Link,” and name it. Choose “Email” as your tool, make it available to users, submit. Tired of wading through the Control Panel to send an email?
  • Can also access email through Grade Center
  • Consider a grade column with text display* for putting absences where students can see them. *Text display = Can type letters AND numbers and other symbols. For student absences, for example, you can type: 2A + 2T.
  • - Can input grades on Blackboard from a tablet, even an iPad, by going on to the Blackboard website (don’t use app). A little sluggish, however.
  • Apps to check out… Can set for any length of time. Continues to run in background as you return to your presentation and will “go off” without returning to it. Free Timer+
  • Class Cards $4.99 Helps you learn names; keep track of participation; keeps students on task.
  • $4.99 Good for tracking attendance (probably on an iPad) and informing students of absences (can download email addresses from Bb), but not good for taking attendance. Can save data saved here to a file which can be emailed to yourself. Attendance2 App
  • Apps to check out… Adobe Reader is far the best free option for PDF annotation. Adobe Reader isn’t limited in any way, and allows users to add “sticky notes” (with the ability to mark yourself as the author), free-hand drawing, and signatures. Free Adobe Reader
  • Apps to check out… iAnnotate allows you to very quickly record your voice ON a document which can be send through email to the student. Believe this is an iPad app only. Probably not feasible to use on a smart phone. $9.99 iAnnotate
  • Using the iPad to present in class Use a combination of Slideshark and Dropbox, both free aps.
  • Museum Apps $2.99 free on iPhone $3.99 on iPad Some “sub-apps” on specific artists Apps to check out…
  • free Apps to check out… Bump for Android and iPhone + can “bump” computer
  • Saving battery life “Double click” here. Hold icon down until it wiggles, then touch the “-”. Can also help if an app gets “stuck” or is giving you trouble. Worse case here: delete app and reload. …on the iPhone (and Ipad)

  • ABOUT THE TIMERS which follow for PowerPoints… There are several timers which follow. You can copy and paste them into your own slides. When you copy them, don’t just click on the timer and copy but rather make sure you draw a copy line outside of the whole box (give yourself a little space). These are made up of individual animations, so you need to make sure you capture all of them. The timers in the boxes (next five slides) were made by Kathi Wong. - The 1-3 minute timers count down in 1-second intervals. - The 4-5 minute timers count down in 5-second intervals until they get to 3 minutes, then they count down in 1-second intervals. - When they get to the last second, a “chime” is sounded Below Kathi’s timers are slides with some timers done by someone else (that Kathi found on the internet). They may suit your purposes better, especially if you are interested in timers that are longer than 5 minutes.

  • Countdown timers for PowerPoint Produced by Dave Foord
  • Terms of use • These timers are free for anyone to use within education or not for profit organisations. • You are entitled to download this presentation and add to your own internal system (e.g. VLE) to distribute to others. • You do not need to attribute the source, within the presentations where these timers are used. • You are not allowed to re-package this presentation (e.g. Remove the A6 Training and Consultancy Ltd logo, or ownership information, without permission from the owner.
  • Countdown Timers • The following slides contain a series of ‘timers’ that can be used in PowerPoint • The idea behind this, is one way to make a PowerPoint presentation to a large audience, slightly more interactive, is to set the students a question, activity, calculation etc. If appropriate a timer can be introduced, to ‘time’ how long is available for them to complete the activity. • There are timers for various different time increments between 10 seconds and 20 minutes. • To use a timer, all you need to do is enter the editing mode of PowerPoint - copy desired timer into your presentation, each timer is made up of many components, so when copying – you need to use the mouse to select all the components to do this – click and hold the mouse, top left of the timer, then whilst holding mouse button down, drag the mouse to bottom right of timer and release – everything within the region should be selected. You can now ‘copy’ – then go into your presentation and paste. • Timers can be resized, or formatted – just make sure you highlight all of the items at the same time (by using same method as above). • Most timers are set to start when they are clicked – the exception being the bar timers which start when you click anywhere on the slide. If you want timers to start automatically when the slide is viewed then this can be achieved by changing the animation settings to start automatically. • Some timers have a sound effect - this could easily be removed or replaced with your own sound effect. • Some timers can be altered to different time increments – see the how to videos (link below) for information. • Look at the notes area on each slide for information on the timers. • For how to guides on using the Countdown timers, visit http://www.a6training.co.uk/resources_powerpoint.php
