Maria Persson's curator insight, July 18, 2013 5:48 PM

All part and parcel of having your 'digital' voice heard.  Great tool.  

Allison Kenney's curator insight, October 16, 8:46 AM

Not the same old PPT that we used to use.

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, October 20, 3:24 AM

Je suis de plus en plus convaincu qu'il faut raconter des histoires, même à des 'grands'.

While gaming is most prevalent in K-12 classrooms, even some graduate schools are getting in on the gaming action, and video games are fast becoming an integral part of training students to be doctors, educators, and businesspeople. Here are just a few of the schools paving the way in using gaming in graduate education.

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool

Find and Drop Images, Quotes and Info References Into Your Presentations with the New Google Research Tool | CALL to Teach | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: I used to love the Google contextual mini-browser (the Google Deskbar - 2003), something probably most people today have never seen nor have a memory of, but which in my humble opinion, was one of the best and most useful tools released by Google ever.

 

Well the little mini-search tool is back in a new customized format inside the Google Docs Presentation tool, where you can now easily search for reference, quotes, information and images related to the topic you are working on in your presentation.

 

Search becomes contextual and the relevant information found can be immediately integrated into the work we are creating. (Any information or image you find with the Google Research Tool can be intuitively selected and dragged onto the slide area, where it can be sized and positioned in any way you like.)

 

Each content item found with the Google Research Tool and utilized in your slide content is automatically linked back to its original source to simplify the credit and attribution process.

 

Extremely useful. Especially for quotes and images.

Try it out now inside your Google Docs / Drive account: https://drive.google.com/

The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly In 2011 — So Far | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | CALL to Teach | Scoop.it

This list brings together what Larry thinks are this year’s best ways to create online content easily and quickly. These web tools are excellent ways for English Language Learners, and others who might not be very tech-savvy, to have a good experience working with technology.
In order to make it on this list, web tools must be:
* accessible to English Language Learners.
* available at no-cost.
* able to be used to easily create engaging online content within minutes.
* willing to host user-created work indefinitely on the website itself.
* appropriate for classroom use.
* accessible without requiring registration.

Applying Video Games in Language Learning and Teaching — The learner perspective: a case study

INTRODUCTION

 

Video game industry is a rapidly growing field especially in Finland. The enormous success of the mobile game Angry Birds has shown how games could be the country's new specialty, and more and more schools offer courses, studies and even degrees on designing video games.

Similarly the field of game studies, also called ludology, is gaining ground and widening its scope even to gamer identities and game cultures as new research is made.

How To Integrate Video Games In The Classroom...

Why video games work in learning isn’t easy to answer. Some of it has to do with their engaging characteristics and their natural interdependence with other media, while the inherent gamification elements and diverse selection also factor in as wall.

But a powerful concept to consider is transfer.

Dan Bassill discusses ways educators and non profits recruit and utilize volunteers as tutors and mentors

Dan Bassill does some remarkable work applying his past business experience to his present passion for improving the lives of disadvantaged kids in Chicago through his tutor mentor programs. The mechanisms he sets up for that are interesting, instructive, and relevant to communities of practice which rely on the cognitive surplus of like-minded volunteers.
