Google Hangouts Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"Google Plus is gaining such a huge momentum within educational circles. More and more teachers and educators are flocking to it and this is probably just the beginning. I have been using this platform since its early days and I have learned a great deal about it. I personally view it as a mixture of Twitter, Facebook and Skype all in one place. From sharing resources and links to posting updates to video conferencing, Google Plus has all the features to render it a powerful educational tool."

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Jesús Torres Junquera's curator insight, March 4, 2013 10:05 AM

En palabras de Robin Good, desde donde rescoopit-amos esta nueva herramienta: 

Annotag es una nueva aplicación web que permite etiquetar y anotar cualquier clip de vídeo: grabado o cargado desde YouTube o Vimeo.
Gracias a ello se puede pasar fácilmente a las partes que se deseen de cualquier vídeo etiquetado: así resultará más accesible e informativo.

Una vez marcado y anotado un vídeo se podrá compartir en de sus canales preferidos de medios sociales o utilizar el "código de inserción" para publicar en su sitio web.

Annotag permite crear múltiples categorías en el canal, con objeto de facilitar la agrupación de los clips en carpetas.

Es posible añadir colaboradores adicionales: editores a su canal, integrar los comentarios de Disqus, Google Analytics y seleccionar un canal público "look" de la página Annotag propia, eligiendo entre una variedad de diferentes plantillas ya preparadas.
