This looks fantastic!

reyhan's curator insight, December 12, 2013 1:14 PM

EdCanvas is a web service which allows you to search, find, clip and collect any kind of content, from text to video clips and to organize it into visual boards for educational and learning purposes.

 

Differently than Pinterest, EdCanvas is specifically targeted at the education world and at schools and teachers, and it makes possible not just to collect "images" from web pages, but to collect and organize whichever content elements you want, including full web pages.

 

EdCanvas boards also offer the ability to easily reposition each item in the collection according to your preferences and it provides a number of pre-set layout options for displaying content in your boards.

 

The strongest feature for EdCanvas is an integrated search engine, which allows you to search for images, websites, video clips across Google, YouTube and Flickr, and lets you grab and drop any relevant result into anyone of your collections. Furthermore Edcanvas can connect directly to your Dropbox or Google Drive giving you access to all of your personal library files.

GeoGuessr: Let's explore the world!

GeoGuessr: Let's explore the world! | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

GeoGuessr is a geography game which takes you on a journey around the world and challenges your ability to recognize your surroundings.

John Dalziel's curator insight, May 15, 2013 4:20 PM

GeoGuessr is a simple game based on Google maps.
An image is provided of an unknown place somewhere in the world and users have to guess where it is and click that place on the map.
As it's based on Google maps street view, users can actually explore around the image and look for clues.
Once they click on the map they will see the real location and how close or far away they were.
Points are awarded depending on how close users are to the real Users have five turns to score as many points as possible.
Using an Interactive White Board, and Triptico to randomly select learners, practitioners can...
- show learners provided images
- ask them to guess where it is and
- ask them to justify their answers by describing what they can see.

A great way to bring the world into the learning environment; good for learners to explore inside the images and pan around to look for clues. Could be used for discriptive language development; get learners to write short descriptions of each of the five places visited during one game.
I found it fun and a little addictive.
