Multilingualism: Switzerland’s unique selling point - SWI swissinfo.ch | Articles re. education | Scoop.it
Switzerland is a good test case for how the world might benefit from more multilingualism, argues language expert Gabrielle Hogan-Brun.
Alison Rostetter's insight:
As a Swiss resident this information appealed to me.  Mother tongue English but also speaking Swiss dialect and reading and understanding 'High' German plus a smattering of French and the ability to order a pizza in Italian.  Here I get to use languages, in the UK I probably wouldn't.

LiveSlides: Embed any web content in a PowerPoint presentation | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

Kick off your presentation with a YouTube video. Then ask the audience a few ice breaker questions they can answer from their mobile phones. Throw in a live Twitter feed to keep them on their toes. Finish it off with an interactive Q&A session. All of that, and more, is possible when you can insert live web content into your presentation with LiveSlides.

 

Make presentations fun again:

Turn a passive audience into active learners. Interactive activities, like multiple choice questions, engage the audience making presentations more enjoyable.

Audience powered Q&A sessions

Tackle the most relevant issues your audience wants answered by letting them upvote the questions they care about and downvote the ones they don't.

Live-updating word clouds

Know what your audience is thinking. LiveSlides can help reveal prominent ideas by presenting these insights as a live word cloud visualization.

One Simple Way to Screencast with Office Mix

One Simple Way to Screencast with Office Mix | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

A 2-Minute Technology Tip on Screencasting by Vicki Davis (@coolcatteacher). A screencast is when you record the screen. While there are many great options out there, Office Mix is so simple, I’m using it for most screencasting. In this example, students have written a few lines of code in Scratch. Then, they open Office Mix. They use the screen recording tool to capture their program in action. Finally, they make the video and upload it to PowerSchool Learning. This tutorial video shows everything except the uploading process.

Alison Rostetter's insight:
I usually use SNAG IT, for which I made a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, but it wasn't that expensive.  I have also used SCREENCAST O COM but that is - in the free version - only for narrating and not recording from your PC.  Obviously, this one needs some trying-out.
