Starting to winnow through yesterday’s #HeyPresstoConf20 tweets, already found some useful and interesting stuff.
Slow Fast Slow is a nice app for changing speed of videos on iOS. I discovered it via a nice tutorial by
Andrew Brooks Rework Time – Playing with time using the Slow Fast Slow App with slow-motion video. I think my class might enjoy this especially if the sandpit is still full of water.
Today we’re announcing an all-new P2 beta as a standalone product, powered by http://WordPress.com. We’re excited to have you try it out: https://wordpress.com/blog/2020/08/06/improve-your-remote-collaboration-with-p2/
We had the p2 theme in Glow Blogs and I though it had a lot of potential. I wonder if running your own p2 will be on the cards? I’d love to see it back in Glow.
We removed the p2 theme from Glow a while back and it hasn’t been updated for a few years now.
In fact, designing a high-filtration but transparent mask or face shield might be an important solution in classrooms as well, to help keep teachers safe.
When windows cannot be opened, classrooms could run portable HEPA filters, which are capable of trapping viruses this small, and which sell for as little as a few hundred dollars. Marr advises schools to measure airflow rates in each classroom, upgrade filters in the HVAC system to MERV 13 or higher (these are air filter grades), and aspire to meet or exceed ASHRAE (the professional society that provides HVAC guidance and standards) standards.
This is a really interesting article. I am not sure how long I could keep windows open in my classroom as we move through autumn into winter.
failure and hope are the very things that have propelled human progress to date
the loss of the random and serendipity are worrying too. #tds1850
Loved the linked photoset of kids playing, outdoors & sometimes, somewhat risky.
Over the summer I am working on #GlowBlogs help site, improving accessibility, clearing out out of date content etc. Any suggestions for improvement very welcome. #GlowScot @GlowScot
Saving this here for following up after the summer break.
The concept had passed me by somehow until Mr Dorman from the @PedagogyTeamNLC introduced them to my class, which very much enjoyed by the children. I had planned on thinking about this a bit more, but other things happened.
Today Arron’s bookmark reminded me and took me to Librarians turned Google Forms into the unlikely platform for virtual escape rooms which links to this example: Hogwarts Digital Escape Room.
I’ve seem a few examples using OneNote and google forms before but this is probably the smoothest experience.
I had wondered if using password protected WordPress posts or pages would work.
I even make a simple set up Make an Escape which produces a sort of digital multi lock (all the answers are 123) before lockdown.
Today I started doing a little reading following Arron’s links, Breakout EDU Additional Game Creator Lab Resources – bit.ly/boeduresources – Google Slides looks as if it is worth borrowing from.
