Creating interactive video on the iPad | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

I think this kind of tool can be really beneficial for creating flipped learning or video orientated learning as the speaker can guide learners to various learning resources on the web. They can also embed visual support for language learners such as text and images and even write over the video as though it were a whiteboard.

Aurasma and ChatterPix: A fun way to bring photos to life with augmented reality!

Aurasma and ChatterPix: A fun way to bring photos to life with augmented reality! | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"In Science, my class has been investigating paper and its properties. One of these invesigations involved writing on two different types of paper and then talking about which was easier/harder to write on and why. I decided to have the kids take photos of each other and then use ChatterPix to add their voices to the photos explaining their observations. Once I had done that, I used the ChatterPix videos as overlays in Aurasma and voila! You have an Aura where a photo begins to talk when scanned. To see how to create Auras using Aurasma visit my post on Aurasma here."

Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own

Creating Great Images With Quotes Is Like Creating Flags For Your Fans To Wave: 3 Free Tools To Create Your Own | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Here are three great free tools to create such visual "social flags" in a matter of minutes (Quoted from Robin Good.... thanks, Robin!!)

 

1) QuotesCover.com - it provides you with tons of ready-made quotes, provers and citations that you can further edit and personalize - it lets you customize fonts, positioning, background image, and throws in some nice touches as "soft-focusing" the background, adding drop-shadows to your text, or emphasizing specific words. Output ready also for status updates, e-cards and prints. Ad-supported. 9/10 - www.quotescover.com 

2) ReciteThis.com - it helps you find a relevant quote by providing you with a number of preset genres, it makes it easy to edit it and then it offers a set of 33 pre-designed "visual cards" from which you can pick the one you like best as a support for your selected quote. You can preview the look of any pre-designed card with your quote by simply hovering your mouse on any such card. Ad-free. 7/10 - www.recitethis.com

 

3) Quozio.com - it allows to grab any text from any web page or to type your own quote, before offering a set of 38 predesigned templates that integrate a background photo and a particular font for your text. You can test and preview all available designs and then select the one you like the most. Ad-free. 7/10 - www.quozio.com

Kate Williams's curator insight, October 28, 2013 7:01 AM

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Maria Eva Blaiotta's curator insight, March 24, 10:24 PM

Free tools which will help you create your own images with quotes.
