Make Presentations Different | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

With SlideIdea, presentations are no longer a one-man show. SlideIdea gives presenters the tools to engage their audience through their audience’s smart phones, laptops, and tablets. Each SlideIdea presentation is provided a unique URL (i.e, www.sld.im/12345 ). Regardless of the location, an audience can simply input the URL into their internet browser and then immediately follow along with slides, participate in polls, ask questions, or even network.

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Não chega? Muito bem: com Slideideia pode ainda gravar as suas falas durante a apresentação. Excelente!

Spell Up. Speak to play and build up your English. | CSPEducational Technology | Scoop.it

This is a great new game from Google which helps students develop their vocabulary through spelling and pronunciation. Using Chrome, students can actually speak to the computer and listen to the pronunciation of the words as they build a word tower. They can even listen to a speaking dictionary telling them what the words mean. This should get your students working autonomously to develop their own vocabulary and if they sign in they can track and share their results.
