Identifying Minerals

Posted on Apr 29, 2015 by Brian Dawson Last Activity on Apr 29, 2015

These two interactive Edge Animate files are designed to help elementary students understand some of the different properties of minerals.  The Mohs' Hardness test encourages them to compare and contrast the different hardness of minerals as they are placed on a scale from 1-10 as determined by the German mineralogist, Frederich Mohs in 1812.  The scratch test compares the relative hardness of the mineral to a standard plate. The attached packages contain the .oam animate_package, the iBooks widget, and the files needed to run the animation through a web browser.   These animations, and many other interactive animations are in my latest iBook "Minerals" now on the bookstore.

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More
