How Can Students Concentrate on Distance Education?

 Nowadays, when we are preparing to say hello to the 2020-2021 Academic Year, we will have to say hello in a slightly different way from the usual beginnings due to the pandemic. When it closed to schools in March, we thought that the schools would remain closed until the summer at most, then the pandemic would end in the summer and we would open the schools normally in September. However, unfortunately, this was not the case and the pandemic process still continues all over the world. In this process, it is not possible for schools to open normally. 

Interactive Digital Board Applications for Distance Education

 Distance Education has become one of today's standards. Although teachers get used to this situation, they still have to struggle with many shortcomings while doing their lessons with distance education. At the beginning of these, teachers are struggling to show the digital content they want to show to students comfortably, to make changes on these contents and to integrate their computers into the lessons more actively.

Escape Room in Education - Example of an Activity

When the term escape room is mentioned, we think of a game prepared to get rid of the mechanisms prepared in a space where mostly adults play. However, the Escape Room in Education is a room you want or need to escape in a gamified environment. Usually used as a fun experience, it can be adapted to a very exciting learning scenario for students, where they can compete to be the first to solve it or work together to escape from it. In this way, we wanted you to sample the escape room activity by preparing an activity rather than a description. We prepared an event using google forms for the escape room, where you can see many examples on sites such as Pinterest. Although our examples are digitally prepared, you can diversify this type of activity and turn it into activities that can be played in a space. As I said, you can find many activities on the internet, but you can prepare and experience one according to the situation of your students. In the rest of our article, you can experience the short escape room activity we prepared.

Algorithmic Thinking Activities for Preschool Children

Algorithms are all sequential logical steps required to solve a problem or a problem or achieve a specific goal. The steps of an algorithm must be sequenced in an appropriate order to do the task correctly.

For this reason, we need to equip children with problem solving skills, which is one of the targeted skills to be acquired in the 21st century skills, by combining them with Algorithmic thinking skills. There are both computer and non-computer activities to teach these skills in preschool.

E-Board Where You Can Teach by Looking at Your Students in Distance Education

 Michael Peshkin, a professor at Northwestern University, believed that turning his back on his students and lecturing reduced their motivation to the lesson, so he found a way to teach by looking at the students. The transparent board, the professor's own invention, also used a double-sided system and computer. We have published this article here before. A long time has passed since this article and the board named e-glass, which did not attract much attention at that time, was added to the use of teachers with much more technical features with the pandemic.
