How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad | 2.0 Tech Tools for Education | Scoop.it

"Visual recording is what it sounds like it’d be. As opposed to recording audio, visual recording captures visuals, though not necessarily in photographic form. The process of visually capturing ideas with the iPad isn’t terribly complex in concept. If you can think of concept-mapping, you’ve halfway there."

I am not a doodler, though my video work obviously requires thinking visually.  I am exploring the world of visual notetaking which has always fascinated me, plus I've seen several people  using sketches on Periscope videos to communicate concepts on the new platform. Looks like fun, either by hand or with apps.

7 Reasons Why Blended Learning Makes Sense

7 Reasons Why Blended Learning Makes Sense | 2.0 Tech Tools for Education | Scoop.it

SMARTER SCHOOLS | by Michael Spencer Education no longer comes in rows and textbooks, but from a combination of sources. 


Let’s start with a definition. What exactly is blended learning? Here’s a great, generally useful definition found on the City Prep Academies website that clarifies the term: “[Blended learning] integrates face-to-face classroom time with online learning (facilitated at all times by a classroom teacher), combining the effectiveness and socialization of the classroom with technology-enhanced online materials.”
