Denise Kako's curator insight, November 30, 2015 7:41 AM

I like this article but through the title «Virtual Visits with Experts In The Digital Human Library» we can understand that its author Leigh Cassell remains in the common perception of Virtual wich consists in opposing Virtual to Real as something tangible, touchble. I invite the community to see Pierre Levy's perspective of Virtual in «Qu'est-ce que le Virtuel?» to better understand why this visit in the DHL is not Virtual since people are connected to each others as well as to the experts and the resources.

Julian Diaz's curator insight, March 20, 3:28 PM
i'm sure that most of nowaday's teachers have used ICT's in classroom and actually enjoy doing it. It has became a really necessary tool the use of virtual aids into the classroom.
Here there are 7 proposals of "modern tools" to use into the classroom that are specially usefull for gropus tasks.

In my personal opinion I really liked numer 1 which is a board tool that lets users organize thoughts and ideas spatially and plus, it could be connected to youtube and google drive (two digital toolsvery used by students) and i liked numer4 aswell because it is specially designed for children and teenagers.

Enjoy the reading and i hope my colleagues use some of these digital tools in their classes.
