A picture is worth a thousand words, but how about using them to generate better questions and move up Bloom’s Taxonomy. What are better questions anyway?
This very simple site will will illustrate for teachers how to create better questions to ask students as you work your way up Bloom’s taxonomy.
Bloom’s – Level 1
Bloom’s – Level 3
Bloom’s – Level 5
Write and ask more effective questions using this technique. Ask similar questions when choosing textbooks, software or even tablet apps. What level Bloom’s is this?
There are always occasions when you would like to capture a screen or part of a screen from a software program or the Internet and use the image in a worksheet, test, poster, etc.
Over the years I have tried all kinds of programs including the Smart or Promethean Camera tools. But the Free Dowce screen capture tool is even easier and saves you some steps.
Most capture tools require that you paste the captured screen into another program and then save the image as a graphic file. Dowce gives you a choice, immediately save the captured image as a graphic file OR paste the captured screen area into another program. You can do both in one step. Well in two clicks.
Capture the whole screen or just a portion of the screen Dowce lets you define the screen capture area.
Dowce has just made screen capture a whole lot easier and your worksheets, PowerPoints, Publisher files, etc. a whole lot more interesting.
Dowce is a Free Windows program.
We have to have some fun once in a while and the site Neave Interactive allows you to do just that! There are several interactive applications on the site but the one I am going to discuss here is for the webcam.
I have my students create Music Videos in PowerPoint and this site can be used for creating some great effects for the videos.
There are over 30 effects that you can try. Each picture can be downloaded as a .jpg photo for use in other programs.
Me, Normal, well as normal as I get.
Having a wedgie!
