  • My thoughts How can I accommodate more learning styles? How can I make my teaching/learning more inclusive? What can I do in the class and out of the class? www.teachertrainingvideos.com

  • How can I do that? Screen capture software www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Screen capture software Records the screen of your computer as if you had a video pointing at it. Includes your voice. Can add real video to screen capture. Can add callouts, subtitles, arrows etc Example How it works www.teachertrainingvideos.com

  • Massive response to idea Videos received enthusiastically Created website for the videos Currently 350,000 visitors a year In surveys the number one reason for their popularity is the fact they are Visual and oral People can work alone It is self paced Flexible www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • My journey begins.. This has value everywhere How can we make feedback more inclusive? How can we make assessment more inclusive? What about other areas? www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Feedback www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • The idea starts First example just correcting grammar. Providing general feedback to the whole class Providing feedback on vocabulary Providing feedback on grammar Began to realise it could be applied to all subjects and contexts Feedback on blogs Long essays on MA programme www.teachertrainingvideos.com

  • Research begins Research in Norway @ Article in theTimes Higher @ Article Independent @ Article in the Guardian @ JISC report @ Research in Canada @ Report in the HEA Research at JISC Research in Japan Research at the Open University @ Research at Coventry University Research at Cardiff Metropolitan www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Impacting on Quality www.teachertrainingvideos.com Students like the voice. Students feel it is more personal. More information is conveyed. Feedback can be elaborated on. Feedback can be very timely. Likehaving the teacher sitting next to you. Student learning styles. Motivating/authentic listening material Special needs students Stylistic benefits
  • Course Support www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Making course material more inclusive When we set coursework When we create marking schemes Exam tips www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • The technology Original work done withTechsmith Camtasia I then began to use JING ( free tool) More recently began to work with SnagIt ( about $25 for educational version) Experimented with other free tools like ScreenR and Screencast-o-matic Help videos for all these tools can be found on my website @ www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Assessment www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • More inclusive assessment How can I change my assessments? -My visual -My oral -Less focus on always writing -More reflection -More collaboration www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Present.Me Student reflection Allows teacher/students to upload PP/Prezi/Google doc Add their webcam and voice Share on the internet We can offer students the choice How does Present.Me work? www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • myBrainShark www.teachertrainingvideos.com Upload PDF files,WordFiles, Pictures,Video Add your voice Compressed and available to share Speaking activities for students Teacher presentations for blended/flipped classroom Reflection Introducing yourself
  • Blogging Used on the University ofWarwick MA in ICT. Students keep a reflective blog of what they learn on the course. Images, text, video Present their blog at end of the course Engage with other learners. Phil Longwell Jo Gakonga www.teachertrainingvideos.com
  • Conclusions There is a key message about learning styles that can help us in our whole approach to teaching and learning. Start simple ( I was thinking about 4 styles) Thinking about how your teaching and learning can be more inclusive. Highlighted 3 key technologies that I think can help us Can be used in a whole range of different ways www.teachertrainingvideos.com
