Nicole Puffett's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:52 PM

Integrating technology into classrooms can be a very beneficial thing for students. Getting them started with technology at a young age is necessary in our developing world. The way that these technologies are introduced though is very important. Teachers must have a strong understanding of what they are doing, before they try to teach the kids. If they don't do this, then the technology really wont be utalized in a beneficial way to the students.

A comparison of the features, scope and price of the 3 main tools. Also see emaze.com - more interesting than PowerPoint, less 'dangerous' than Prezi!

Teri Thomas's curator insight, April 10, 2014 10:07 AM

Yes, Prezi is an option for some presentations, the most universal information in this piece is the 2nd to last line.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

The article compares three most used presentation tools - PowerPoint, Keynote and Prezi. There is a table that sums up pros and cons of each software and helps you decide which one is the best for you.

iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » 6 Days and 78 Resources for Digital Literacy Internet Safety | Classroom Technology | Scoop.it

At Anastasis Academy we are a 1:1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) school with EVERY student using technology throughout the day every day.  Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship are important topics for us because it is so integral to what our kids do while they are at school.  Whether or not you have a 1:1 program, these are topics that shouldn’t be overlooked!  Don’t assume that because your students are fairly savvy when it comes to learning technology, that they will automatically pick up on digital literacy.  Digital Literacy isn’t a topic that should be relegated to school either, it is essential that parents learn about digital literacy so that they can echo and enforce good technology use at home.  This week we will have a week of intensive digital literacy training for our students.  Being a BYOD school means that these topics come up as we go through the year often, it is nice for us to have an intensive week to refer students back to throughout the school year.  So much of digital literacy echoes good safety practices in “real” life.  As such, we spend time discussing online and offline safety practices during this week and have our local school deputy join us.  When I was a technology teacher, I would end this week with an Internet Driver’s License, students had to pass a safety quiz in order to get their license.  This was their ticket to being able to be online in my class.  Students could lose their license for inappropriate online behavior.  This was always popular for kindergarten through fifth grade students!  Below are our favorite resources to use.  We choose a different digital literacy topic for each day of the week, follow along or mix it up to meet your own needs!
