Emerging Technology for Classroom Instruction and Virtual Classroom (Phase I)
hi good day everyone today I will be sharing with you emerging technology for classroom instruction and virtual classroom ready we are currently in the middle of an educational Revolution with the emergence of Technologies changing the way we teach and how students learn but when coronavirus wreck havoc across the globe one of the sectors that has been hardly hit was education and when the World Health Organization or WHO organized or made its Global announcement to shut the operation of school institutions to prevent the spread of covid-19 pandemic on March 11 2020 after such preventive measures we approximately lost 1.6 billion of Learners worldwide that's according to the UNESCO report that covers Feb 2020 up until August 2021 it became alarming that UNESCO members call for a conference and gathered together all educational leaders around the globe just to address the school closures and other responses to the covid-19 pandemic is experiencing an unprecedented disruption of Education the meeting will focus on actions policies and partnership and how we can all contribute to addressing these challenges and due to the worldwide shutdown of schools and institutions the coronavirus pandemic forced many schools and colleges to switch to what we call as remote learning model and that's when learning became the norm this was covered here in our country in the Philippines by Foreign News Channel and that resulted in the rising demand for e-learning platforms and this tech became the hottest educational trends overnight. Thus the need for us to rethink the curriculum or design an alternative model using the e-learning platform was recommended as the best solution due to abundance in technology and one of the suggested solutions that UNESCO members have devised concerning technology is to turn to Open Educational Resources or "OER" since it has been existing since 2012 and since we are part of the UNESCO members our educational leaders and experts also took part in that decision making so we adopted idea and plan for teachers training for the said new modality in addition to monitoring the impact of Covid - 19 on education, UNESCO also has published a curated list of freely accessible elearning applications and platforms that can be used by parents, teachers and as well as our Learners and school systems there are tons to choose from. In addition to monitoring the impact of Covid -19, as the schools changed their method of delivering education , they also needed to change their structure along the way so we redesigned our teaching instruction to mirror both the Working World of the 21st century and the needs of its highly social, interactive, technology-focused students by leveraging technology and education just like using Collaborative Learning tools that allow teachers to work with each other and even with outside experts to plan and manage long-term interdisciplinary projects.
Furthermore it opened a lot of opportunities for us to reinvent our teaching methods that would work not only in physical classroom but also in digital platforms you might tell me that we have started integrating technology since 2012 when we first implemented K-12 right yes but its impact was only felt at its peak during the height of pandemic especially here in our country it was also the same year where the massive open online courses have been opened up to the world by edX, Udacity, Coursera and so much more and they have been educating the world since then so that is why one of the suggested solutions that UNESCO members have devised is to turn to open educational resources when we first transitioned our teaching instructions from physical classes to remote or online learning, in foreign countries they call it hybrid because they have given options to students to choose to enroll online as part of the curriculum itself and if you come to think of it technology can be a powerful tool to reimagine learning experiences on the basis of those insights and "One of the most important aspects of technology in education is its ability to level the field of opportunity for students" that's according to John King he is the U.S Secretary of Education. With technology, the opportunities are limitless come to think of it but it can only be achieved if carefully designed and thoughtfully applied. It has the potential to accelerate and expand the impact of powerful principles of learning the teaching students with technology is important as it is teaching them with Reading, Writing and Math. The society that we are living in now is already infused with technology and the world that our students would have would be way more advanced than as it is today, we never know. Technology is here to stay, we as educators, teachers must teach them how to navigate into the digital world as well as on how to use numerous technologies to solve various problems to prepare them for future work. Technology has made it possible for everyone to stay connected. With technology, learning becomes
more meaningful and fun. Through e-learning students and teachers connect, discuss and share their opinions and act upon situations collaboratively with the use of collaboration tools. Some educators use animations, podcasts and videos to make the e-learning experience more fun and immersive or interactive. Other e-learning platforms apply video-assisted learning with the use of interactive videos and other visual modes. While there is a wide room for creativity here and a bunch of tools to choose from. The challenge is not what to teach because
you already have that but the challenge here lies on which tools to use in conducting an online teaching that will be most suitable for your learners. The key there is to check the list and see for yourself to find which ones would be most convenient and comfortable to use for you. The question there is, what's in it for teachers? technology offers the opportunity to become more collaborative and extend learning beyond the classroom it connects us to people, data, content, expertise and learning experiences that can empower and inspire us to provide more effective teaching for all types of learners just like the this Filipina teacher is doing on the clip. Technology also offers access to instructional materials as
well as the resources and tools to create manage and assess their quality and usefulness. That's really useful on the learning platforms we have access to world-class resources. Educators can create learning communities composed of students whether it's in the library museums and other places. This technology enhanced collaboration offers access to instructional materials as well as the resources and tools to create management assess their quality and usefulness.We will become all collaborators of learning or facilitators of learning and through studying students learn and through teaching educators also learn new things every time.
That's what makes teaching a novel profession, as learning and influence are limitless. So to make that happen we need sufficient knowledge about this emerging technologies, their impact and how to use them I am bringing that information to you so you would know which ones are you most comfortable using to make your classroom teaching instruction immersive, fun, engaging, interesting and thus effective not only for online teaching but also for teaching inside a physical classroom. So what are these emerging technologies right now. There are actually a great number of them and there are a lot of concepts coming on stream right now and expect the numbers to go up I'm going to introduce some that you might like to reflect on to see which ones resonate in terms of the relevance to your own practice I'm going to teach you how you can make your teaching instruction using this emerging technology so we will be discussing online learning, interactive quizzes or interactive quiz, interactive videos, gamification, interactive ebook as well as dynamic video lessons for the first part and for the second part we will have interactive assessments web development game development artificial intelligence machine learning and virtual reality this will be very helpful for us teachers let's start with online learning whenever you're online learning this there's also what we call as mooc or massive open online courses and due to massive open online courses technology has way too much to offer for today's generation it provided as a path way to become globally skillful through their courses knowledgeable and competitive without the cost of geographical barriers because we don't need to travel on too far places even finances because even others who don't have much money can also afford it with their freely accessible online selected course and social economic status and through this open educational resources campaign as suggested by unesco's the best remedy to address the ongoing educational crisis it opened up the awareness to be able to turn to this what we call online learning platforms and this massive open online process offered by the following massive open online crisis providers and the best the best of this is that it's because that we can be aligned with other um foreign countries with regards to the materials that they are using in their class so it's like very rich in learning resources and there's what we call Nano learning what is it all about Nano learning is a highly targeted learning method designed to help people understand subject topics through smaller inputs in short time frames usually about less than 10 minutes or just make it within three to five minutes similar to the concept of bite size learning or chunking it breaks down complex moments into simpler tasks or simpler inputs just like this one this is one of the example of Nano learning uploaded in social media it only covers like a few few minutes for the tutorial I think that's very creative right I like this one the reason for this is the new generation... they only have less memory retention so that's why they tend to go online and watch few or short tutorials so you cannot expect them to spend a lot of time learning new things or academically just like before before the pandemic so the best there is to make a short lectures that will be captivating for learners within the time frames of 3-5 minutes or not more than 10 minutes if you need that long and upload it on social media such as Tick Tock Snapchat Instagram as reels teachers are constantly looking for new ways to keep their students attention high in the remote education scenario the idea is to deliver short and simple concepts in an engaging format like the age of Tik-tok Snapchat and YouTube has somewhat proven this as an effective method for content consumption through social media platforms people want information quickly and concisely so they can move on to the next step. Another learning replicates this kind of style let's start with
another one creation of interactive quizzes so if you want something that is fun an elearning platform that can make it that will be easier for us to create and share and play learning games or trivia quizzes in minutes that helps you unleash the fun anywhere using any devices anytime then you might love kahoot. Kahoot gamifies learning through its interactive quizzes how does it work? and you can watch the link on the video at the end of the slide and this is how it looks if we have created a multiple-type of questions through kahoot and if you host the game you will be needing a large screen and the rest of the students will be accessing the Kahoot by entering their nickname and their pin that you have provided them. So how can you create a quizzes to work out. Just go to the Play Store download Kahoot app or you may go to the browser and type in kahoot.com click on the sign up for free button and click on teacher for your account type next is for describer your workplace just pick "school" and you will have this home screen or the home page just click on the plus button and it will open up all options for you to choose just click on Create and these are the type of quizzes that you can select for free version you can pick any type of quiz or true or false but for quizzes you are only given four choices if you need to add more choices then you will need to upgrade to premium this is how you toggle the timer button just click on the purple bar and this is where you can add the media for your question and this is where you can add questions and these are the four selections for the choices and make sure you also toggle the radio- button "on" for the correct answer but anyway if you did not and it will just prompt you to fix that question so you can save it and use it so this is how it looks here just like an example here the rest will turn red for incorrect answers and also one of the best thing that Kahoot offers is for math teachers they do have Math labs and it's very fun and interesting it's like a modern way of learning and whenever you save your quiz you can find it on the library the next thing that you would like to do is share it so just tap on it and you will see the three dots on the upper right just click on it and you will have the sharing options just like this one or you can copy the link and provide it with your learners and this is how it looks on the learner's end whenever they open the quiz that you have shared with them if you want to host a game this is how it looks you need a large screen and you you can pick a theme and they can answer it so what you're gonna do is just click on enter the pin you've provided to them it will ask them to enter the nickname so you better ask them to enter their real name because as a student. So you can see their scores and grade them more you can also choose to pick on flash cards to see how it looks and this is the pin that you can share among your learners which is that you can also copy the pin and share it in any platforms and this is how it looks so the same they will need to enter the pin or access the link enter their name and we will see the questions that you have created if you pick flash cards it's a form of showing your quizzes it would look like this so cute simple right now let's have a short quiz thank you foreign don't leave me in the dark oh yeah Right now let's proceed to the creation of interactive videos through the use of Ed puzzle.

stories lessons and videos with your learners then Book Creator suits for you by combining all those things that you love into an interactive ebook you can make the best output for your learners to access anytime Book Creator is the simplest but most inclusive way to create content in the classroom so this is how it looks if you will be creating your first ebook using the Book Creator platform you can just go to the browser and type in bookcreator.com if there's an existing Library you will be able to see that one But first you will need to sign up so this is how it looks if you have signed into Book Creator app urbancreator.com there is a three bar on upper left you can click on that one and if you have existing libraries that you have created before with lots of books that you have created last time then you will be able to see that or you can also join an existing Library all you got to do is just enter your library code and you would have your own Library color once you have created your very first book for your very first ebook Library the first thing first is if you will be making your first ebook just toggle or top on create new boob then select the book shape either portray square or landscape let's pick landscape for a demo it actually depends on whichever platform that you will be sharing this ebit through and the first thing is would be your to set up your cover page so whenever you would like to set up your cover page you will be needing to add image text for the title and for the order for you so you can click on the plus button to add image but you may also start with the eye button that's for the background of the cover page there are tons of beautiful colors and textures to choose from once you're all set up just click on the plus button wherein you can enter or import image either from your device or from the Google search engine so if you have selected the Google search engine there will be a Google search bar on top or in you can type in the title of the image that you are looking for and once you found it just click on it and it will be saved right to the cover page so all you got to do is to adjust the size of the image you can just extend it or if you're not happy with it you can also go back and select another one it's like drag and drop and you don't need to go back to that cover page and delete it manually you can just select another image click on it you can just hover the mouse here you're hovering to the image that you like from the Google browser so you can just select the image that you like and click on drag and drop it right there so when that whenever you drop it it would automatically set up on the cover page and all you have to do is delete the background the previous one and you can adjust it according to the size of your preference whenever you like I'll have it however you like you can also add another image if you like to if you want to images just for the background of the cover page once you're done just click on the plus button click on text of course you will be adding the title for the cover page the title of your interactive ebook there will be a pop-up box for you to enter the text and click on done and once you're ready then you can also click on the I button make sure that the text is highlighted so whenever you click on the I button it will be for the settings and layout of the text like the fonts the font size the font colors everything like you're doing it on a Microsoft Word then you can add another text by clicking on the plus button and click on text once you're ready to create another page just click on the arrow on the right side but you can see and click on the I button because there are other people who set up the background first just like when you're drawing for the first time on your canvas set up the background color and then add the image for your subject so same thing whenever you have selected the background or like the Border page of your first page of your interactive ebook then you can just uh click on the plus button for the adding image so you miss what you did on the cover page you can just import image from your device from the Google drive or from the Google search engine you can search for the image that you like same process same steps just drag and drop the image it will go straight to the first page it was already I actually fast forwarded fast forwarded this image and as I have mentioned earlier whenever the text is highlighted when you click on the I button what would be enabled is the text options for you like the color of the text the the outline of the text and if you would like to add more text of course there it's a book so there will be a lot of text to read so you can just select an add or the plus button for the pop-up box for text wherein you can enter the text and click done once you're ready and you can adjust it on the I button and change the color so this is how it looks another best thing that I like about the interactive ebook is it allows us to enter or embed videos from YouTube videos you can just copy the link of the videos find the embed link because there are two links that you can get from your from any of the YouTube videos one is for sharing links and one is for embedding links that you can also find it here find the link of the YouTube videos and go to the steps that we have done earlier and get to embed link there the videos will actually play whenever the viewers reached on that page and you can also record your own voice to customize your ebook and you can click

speaker icon to let you know that you have recorded something for that page and you can drag it and drop it to any part of the page whenever you like and click on the next Arrow for the next page or click on pages if you want to view everything you can delete the pages such there if there's something you would like to delete you can rearrange the pages because you can see it there including the cover page you can duplicate the pages you can rearrange arrangement of every Pages whichever comes first and you can go back you will be able to see each of the pages that you have created you can click on the play button to preview how it looks once it's ready to be shared there it flips on its own and it plays your there's an option to play automatically the audio for each page your books for every version by the way for the bookcreator.com or Book Creator platform
for a free version it allows us to create at least 40 books for one library and every pages of the book you can have as many pages as you like just only 40 books for now for one library or you can upgrade so this this is the sample ebook I just made the life of an artist behind the canvas our artist for today is famously known as Juan Luna who is Juan Luna as an artist Juan Luna De San Pedro Innovation Terra or known as Juan Luna so that's it now let's have a pop quiz alright true or false stretching an image that cover the entire page background can be a good effect to try next one true

making a game on the platform and it's not only for making a game because others uses scratch to create a music player so you will find it out because the very first thing if you don't know how to use the platform first is to navigate the platform the rest is up for you to explore explore your creativity and you will learn it in time just like when you're playing a guitar first the first time you try to practice playing guitar is you follow the rules step by step in order for you to um play the guitar for the first time following the chords of the particular song that you have selected but as you go along feel that you have that strong passion in music and playing musical instruments you will learn it and you will play from the heart so that's how it goes same thing with making a game it's not just only for making the games it's a very friendly user friendly and was made accessible for everybody by the MIT this was developed by MIT it's very beautiful scratch that mit.edu so that's the only thing that you need to remember and click on the create button if you will be creating the app for the first time by the way this is cloud-based mini you cannot upload it to Google Play Store you don't need to worry for that one but if you want you can ask questions because there's another option for you to create a game using the scratch platform the interface that will enable you to upload it using what we call this MIT app developer but we don't need to add some complexity on this so we'll just learn it how to use it for a teacher's end now let's have a short quiz about scratch what is the logo character of scratch cat duck dog cow what is scratch a social media a cloud-based programming environment an interactive quiz platform a game-based learning platform only games can be programmed via scratch true false you can program a music player using scratch true false what do you call the character in scratch Coke code blocks Sprite scratch is free true false scratch was developed by MIT true false you can upload your scratch project to Play Store true false in scratch codes represented in a form of visual blocks true false you cannot create an interactive stories nor animations in scratch true false thank you so much for learning with me and that's for Phase one it covers a lot and I hope that you'll learn something new next up would be artificial intelligence because I divided this into two see you there!
