How to share a screen in Skype

How to share a screen in Skype | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Did you know that as well as make video calls, you can also share your screen with Skype? Screen sharing is particularly useful if you need a friend to help with some trouble shooting on your computer or if you're having a business meeting. Screen sharing works fairly well on Skype although it does use more bandwidth. If you experience screen freezes or the screen sharing responds slowly, try deactivating video calling if you're in a video call.

To share a screen on Skype, just follow these steps:

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore

8 Creative Uses of Google Drawings You Shouldn’t Ignore | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Did you ever click the bright red "New" button inside your Google Drive?

 

"Google Drawings isn't at the forefront of tools. The limelight is reserved for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. But let's do a reawakening of sorts and click on More to go to the "neglected" siblings. We have seen the usefulness of Google Forms. It's time to appreciate the versatility of Google Drawings.

 

"Google Drawings is the freshest among all Google Drive tools. It is not a full-blownimage editor like MS Paint. But the graphic editor is more powerful for one simple fact – it is a real-time collaborative application."
