Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 13, 2014 7:46 AM

la necesidad de hablar diversos idiomas para poder vivir en una sociedad global ha generado el desarrollo de traductores en tiempo real que prácticamente eliminan, sino reducen, la necesidad de ir a una academia o instituto a aprenderlos. El traductor de Skype es un ejemplo claro de ello.

Da Rajib's comment, March 28, 2015 6:46 AM
Hello! Thank you for your article. I’d like to try to compare it to my previous experience of learning polish through Skype on online classes. I did around 10 conversations over Skype with a native speaker from http://preply.com/en/polish-by-skype. And I was pretty satisfied with their Quality. I think they have a strong teaching quality, practicing their course curriculum now I can speak polish like a native but i don't need to go any school, but I Want to try another option.

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School | Daring Apps, QR Codes, Gadgets, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it
There are lots of great learning opportunities when you use green screen effects in the classroom. I’ve written about some of those before, but almost all of them involved green screen movies. What about green screen photography? Is that possible on an iPad? It is, because there’s an app for that.

Recently I was reminded of the ability to do green screen photography when I read a blog post by Dr. Wesley Fryer. He did a green screen photo booth at the Fall Festival of the school he works at in Oklahoma. Great idea. So how do you do it? It all starts with the Green Screen app by DoInk. The rest is easy! Here’s how it works.
