Hi Thomas, you are right, but there are several good alternatives at more affordable prices. I am preparing a public list so that you can take direct advantage of it.
Thomas N. Burg's comment, September 9, 2012 2:08 PM
Hi Robin, I did some research since we are using it for a biz case. Knoodle might be interesting I think, and 9slides if they improve the editor … looking forward to your list :-)
Alex Haller's comment, January 10, 2013 7:28 AM
The problem with Knoodle is the poor navigation possibility. Not comparable with the SlidePresenter solution. But it really depends on what your goals are. SlidePresenter is an appropriate tool for corporations rather than for private use.

Teaching is complex: Don't try to simplify what teachers do

Teaching is complex: Don't try to simplify what teachers do | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Prominent educator Stephen Dinham recently made some criticisms of primary teaching, some of which I support, but some were too simplistic. His views on educational research and his criticisms of 'process' versus product fail to acknowledge the complexity and nuances of developing skilled teaching.

A thoughtful article as we continue the discussion about teaching and its implications for learning.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 24, 11:51 AM

Last night, when I told a person that my research would be qualitative, they were left speechless. Most of panel discussion quoted quantitative research and spoke little about teaching. The word stakeholders was used as a place holder in the discussion. When we think that the appropriate language is business language we begin to fall short of the complexity of teaching.

SOLUTIONS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND COMMON GOOD ALLOVER THE WORLD. Kind attention to all Jewish,Christians,Muslims and all other communities in the world Holy Quran is containing of 6666 verses which are dedicated  to angles by God. Out of it 87% of verses are related to Histories of Prophets and Wars , Earthquakes, Floods and Famine which affected the people who were residing at the time of Prophets . Muslims in the world are reciting whole Quran verses  frequently in all the Muslim countries and countries wherein muslims  are residing . they are affecting by  wars , Disasters , Tsunami , Earthquakes , Climate changes , loss of business , terrorism and also creating other problems with other communities  on the reasons that 6666 Quranic verses are handled  by angles in the world in accordance with Quranic Verses 42:51,52 According to Quranic verses 39:17, 18  and 55 , It is revealed  that  whole quran verses cannot be recited except very important verses can be recited towards social justice and common good for the purpose of peace , unity , health , wealth , faith , inter-faith , climate changes , improving business and stopping off disasters and terrorism and accordingly we have posted messages of God and also our research paper at www.goldenduas.com for the same purpose in accordance with all the international laws as follows: Now, the people of Jewish and Christians are saying that Quran is False, which itself established enimity between Muslims and these two communities not to attain peace in the world that Muslim is the second largest population in the world and they are following Quran Versus in the world.                                             The above communities shall find out the Quran Versus 5:8, 5:33, 5:49, 5:72 and also Isaiah verse 27:6. In the Quran Versus 7:138 as follows:[7:138] And We caused the people who were considered weak to inherit the eastern parts of the land and the western parts thereof, which we blessed. And the gracious word of thy Lord was fulfilled for the children of Israel because they were steadfast; and We destroyed all that Pharaoh and his people had built and all that they had erected. Quran Verse- 7:168 - as follows:[7:168] And remember the time when thy Lord proclaimed that He would truly raise against them, till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with grievous torment. Surely, thy Lord is quick in retribution, and surely He is also Most Forgiving, Merciful. Zechariah Versus - 14.2 & 14.3 - as follows14:2                 For I will get all the nations together to make war against Jerusalem; and the town will be overcome, and the goods taken from the houses, and the women taken by force: and half the town will go away as prisoners, and the rest of the people will not be cut off from the town.14:3                 Then the Lord will go out and make war against those nations, as he did in the day of the fight. In the Quran Versus - 17:4 to 17:8 - as follows: [17:4] ‘O ye the progeny of those whom We carried in the Ark with Noah.’ He was indeed a grateful servant. [17:5] And We revealed to the children of Israel in the Book, saying, ‘You will surely do mischief in the land twice, and you will surely become excessively overbearing.’ [17:6] So when the time for the first of the two warnings came, We sent against you some servants of Ours possessed of great might in war, and they penetrated the innermost parts of your houses, and it was a warning that was bound to be carried out. [17:7] Then We gave you back the power against them, and aided you with wealth and children, and made you larger in numbers. [17:8] Now, if you do well, you will do well for your own souls; and if you do evil, it will only go against them. So when the time for the latter warning came, We raised a people against you to cover your faces with grief, and to enter the Mosque as they entered it the first time, and to destroy all that they conquered with utter destruction. In the above, versus of Zechariah and also Quran Versus which are similar in nature to solve social justice and common good between these communities. Please visit and view the messages and research paper posted at http://www.goldenduas.com in the interest of social justice and common good in the world and spread the same to each and every corner of the world for discussion and to attain peace and unity in the world.  Nowdays, all the governments in the world or collecting huge taxes from tax payers and the same are utilizing for the purpose of peace in the world, but no result. The tax payers are suffering to improve their business and life. The following points may be taken in account to solve all the world challenges and disbute.Proposal to the United Nations relating to International Peace and Security to authorize Under Article 96(2) of the Charter of the United Nations. Hello,Our research report  is in conformity with Under Article 1(1) and 7 of the Charter of United Nations and the same maybe authorized by the General Assembly of the United Nations  in accordance with U/A 96(2) of the present Charter and U/A 2(2), 5(1),6(2),11(2),13(1), 15(1) (a) (c), 16(2) (a),(b),& 18 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights on the basis of U/A 33(1), 55(c), 70, 71,73(a) of the present Charter and accordingly  the research paper ought to have been debated with Vatican, World Churches Council, Commission of Churches on International Affairs, Jewish Foundation, Islamic Supreme Councils , researchers of UN and all the International bodies for the following reasons:“Reporting of world peace solutions between Christians,Jews and Muslims in the worldWe are here with attached our research report towards international peace and security for perusal and considerationsSince we are the independent and voluntary  researchers with out dependency of finance either from the government or any other agency, on the reasons that we are following Social Justice and Common Goods - Policy Paper of World Council of Churches and also By-laws of the Commission of the Churches on international affairs. Our researchers mainly follow the principles and rules laid down by the above important policy and rules.Under Articles 2.4, 3.6, 3.10&11, 8.1(b) of the By-laws of the Commission of the Churches on international affairs, we have posted our research report in United Nations Global Compact which containing of solving of problems between Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus in the world. In accordance with Articles 3.12 of the above By-Laws, it is a duty of commission of Churches to maintain and provide for the maintenance of contacts with International bodies such as the United Nations and its agencies include regional bodies and other non governmental Organisations, which will assist in the attainment of the aims of the Commission. The matter has being brought it to the notice of the World Churches Council and the Commission of the Churches asked its notice on the matter to the United Nations for your appropriate decisions. ?The World Churches Council Policy Paper on Social Justice and Common Goods is the best policy to the World peace and unity solutions, which has been published on 22 March 2011 and the same is in accordance with Psalm 85. The Church cannot succeed if it, isolates itself, Not only must Christians reach out to Muslims and other faiths in the spirit of ecumenism, but there is a need to embrace other people of different philosophical convictions. This requires ideological tolerance, maturity and self assurance in what one believes in. Such coalition building is made easier by choosing issues that unite organizations and movements and which have less potential causing divisions. At the same time we need an honest and inventive method of dealing with differences. The global movement for economic justice relies considerably on policy analysis and research conducted by hundreds if not thousands of academics researchers and scholars. ?Our consequences of the changing power relations in today's world is that there is more room in the public sphere for the affirmation of collective values and principles, experience proves that an informed public opinion can be powerful today, and can change governments public and international agendas. Again Churches are challenged to make use of this opportunity. They need to read the signs of time and to make their voices heard by responding to peoples cries for justice and dignity, and by speaking truth to the powers- whoever and wherever their may be. ?Christians do not have ready made answers and solutions to propose. The Bible offers guidelines (love, sharing, justice for the poor) but does not defined one "Christian" economy or "Christian" politics. ?Churches and Church related organizations can initiate public debates and largely use media means to reach a broader constituency, furthermore, regional thematic discussions can be facilitated with the ecumenical family. WCC should develop specific analysis depending on the context. ?What are theological implications for commodification common goods? ?How shall we ensure the participation all people in managing common goods in the world? ?How do we deal with power imbalances in the world? ?How can the ecumenical family engage itself effectively and in a coherent and convincing way in addressing global power imbalance? ?How can WCC lead a climate change campaign with social justice as a focus? ?What kind of collective values can be draw for the Churches to guide them in addressing the problem of commodification of common goods? ?The above questions have been answered in our research materials available at http://www.goldenduas.com and alsohttp://www.facebook.com/research of international development solutions and the same are to be discussed by the Churches, public and all its organizations in the interest of public safety, peace, unity, health, wealth, faith, interfaith ?                 Under this circumstances, it is just and necessary that UK, USA, Cambridge, Churches on the International Affairs are requested to accept our research paper and also our research organization as an organization under other faith category to assist the commission to achieve its goal of International Peace and climate changes solutions for the benefit of world community especially Christians, Jewish and Muslims, under the by-law 3.11 of CCIA. In view of the aforementioned submissions in the interest of maintenance of International Peace and Security, UN may be pleased to authorize our organization in the name and style of` Research on International Development Solutions `and also our research report in confirmatory with U/A 96 of the present Charter read with U/A 23 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and thus render Justice.  Now, Palestine Muslims are fighting with Israel , both countries are affected and innocent people are killed frequently which is against the Quranic verses 7:137 & 5:33 that no one can claim Israel Government areas which is a place of Israel People but not Muslim or Christian and they can only Allow worship in the Holy Places of Israel . These facts has not been Discussed for amicable solutions of social justice and common good by United Nations to respect Gods word . It is pertinent to note that why the jewish people are affecting the Muslims is mention the Quran 7:167 ? And the same should be taken into consideration by jewish people in the world in the interest of social justice and common good on the light of the research paper posted  at our website www.goldenduas.com and render justice.  Your successU.

5 Tips For Keeping Students On Task While Using Technology | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Playing games, chatting with their friends, and browsing the internet are all likely suspects drawing your students’ attention away from whatever the task at hand happens to be, but just because students have access to technology doesn’t mean you have to transform into device police and forget about teaching. Even if your students would much rather be watching videos on YouTube than learning about the Roman Empire, you still have the upper hand: they want to be using the device. Period."

Common Core: 5 Technology Tools To Measure Text Complexity

 

"This post specifically addresses one aspect of text complexity — what the Common Core terms “quantitative evaluation.”  It’s important to recognize from the onset that other measures must be in place to adequately explore complexity.

Currently, there are many web-based tools that help with the quantitative evaluation of books (for example, you can use Barnes and Noble to search by Lexile measure); however, as our students will likely be reading a combination of print and digital materials (especially in states giving the PARCC test), tools that help identify scales for online or digital text are also necessary. Here are five (mostly free) web-based tools that might be helpful as we curate reading content for students."
