Educatorstechnology 4:40 AM 21st century education, 21st century teaching skills

As teachers and educators, we are in a constant state of flux. Traditional ways of teaching are taking backstage while new emerging methodologies are thrusted to the forefront. In fact, the educational landscape is changing so fast that it is hard to predict what our classrooms will be like in the near future.

Technology is definitely a key factor in this change but is not the only one, and certainly not the silver bullet of education. External environmental factors also have their say in what is happening in the education sector. Think about the current pandemic and the seismic impact it has on education, an impact whose ripples are still reverberating across the educational spectrum.

Google Meet is definitely one of the best video conferencing tools to use in your distance education. The education community is increasingly drawing on its communicative power to deliver courses, host meetings and PD sessions, organize online conferences, run virtual classes, and many more. Given its educational potential I have dedicated a whole section featuring resources to help teachers make the best of this platform in their teaching.

After we have seen how to record Google Meet captions and live chat messages, today's post features two equally important extensions that will help you charge your Meet with more practical functionalities:

1- Google Meet Enhancement Suite

Google Meet Enhancement Suite adds over 40 features to Google Meet. These include basic features such as : push to talk (allows you to mute and unmute yourself with a single click), auto join (lets you get directly to the meeting), quick leave (lets you leave meetings with a single click), set background colour, automatically enable captions on calls, auto video off, auto mute, and many more.
As for the pro features they include: auto record, speaker highlight, meeting timer, mirror videos, mute all, do not disturb mode, auto pin chat, auto-full presentation free on presentation, display clock, hotkey editing, dark mode, and many more.

2- Meet Plus for Google Meet

Another key extension that adds more interactive features to Google Meet. Basic features include: drag/resize/restore video tiles, dark modes, show/hide bottom bar, emoji reaction, help request (participants can request help from the meeting host), task management (participants receive tasks from the meeting host), trivia quiz (integrate trivia quiz in meetings), link sharing (participants can share links during meet sessions), meeting timer, stopwatch, and many more.

Free Resources to Help with Remote Learning in 2022

If you're looking for software and services to augment online and blended instruction, start here.

As the pandemic continues bringing change to higher education through the academic year, faculty, instructional designers and IT professionals are being more selective about the technology they choose for instructing and engaging students. While hundreds of education companies, nonprofits and other organizations made their software and services free during the immediate switch to remote learning, many have become more thoughtful about how they help educators master online and blended instruction. We've sifted through their offerings to bring you this updated set of free resources to help with online, hybrid and face-to-face learning in 2022.

If your organization has a resource that should be added to this list, send a brief message to rkelly@1105media.com with "free resource" in the subject header and include a link to your offer's website.

Adobe has developed a resource hub for education with free templates, links to free software (including Adobe Acrobat, Sign and tools for Google Drive) and videos with instructions for how to use the programs. https://acrobatusers.com/edu-resource-hub/educators/

5 razões para usar tecnologias digitais na sala de aula...há mais, mas

It might have been long coming, but one fact is becoming quite clear. Traditional classrooms can no longer keep up with growing technology today. For example, one factor contributing to this trend is the fast-paced development of educational games for kids and online educational games for kids.

Still, many teaching concepts cling to traditional schooling. The opponents of the change point to the possibility that technology in the classroom could promote cheating. Possibly, but the facts that speak about the need to use modern technology in the classroom are more overwhelming.

Current trends and events give ample reasons this change is inevitable. Even before March 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic, trends in modern technology showed the positive elements of its use in the classroom.
