Ramya Arun Pai's curator insight, December 20, 2012 3:58 AM

There are three techniques shared in this article which can make your keynote look like the one described above.

 

The first, called the Magic Move is to be used to accentuate single or multiple graphics or objects between slides.

 

The next technique, called the Custom Move is slightly tricky. It is used to move a graphic within the slide itself.

 

The last technique, called Smart Build, involves displaying multiple objects on a single slide. Smart Build can be used to create an impressive mini-slide show within a slide.

 

Once you read this, preparing a presentation for keynote will be so much easier and the final outcome that much more impressive.

Let's stop talking about teaching w/ technology, and let's start talking about teaching - Google Drawings

Let's stop talking about teaching w/ technology, and let's start talking about teaching - Google Drawings | Digital learning. | Scoop.it
Most teachers don't care about technology. Here's the more important thing I've learned: they shouldn't. When I went through the education program at my college, I wasn't interested in learning how to 'create and share a Google Doc' or how to 'flip my classroom'. I wanted to teach English. I wanted to teach kids how to actively read, how to engage in thoughtful discussion, how to communicate effectively, and how to be lifelong learners. I wanted to teach kids to be collaborative, persistent, and reflective. I didn't want to spend time sifting through iPad apps, learning about different content management systems, or sitting through workshops about QR codes. I wanted to teach.

The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog

The periodic table of iPad Apps - Mark Anderson's Blog | Digital learning. | Scoop.it
"I was recently inspired by Sean Junkins’ (@sjunkins) periodic table of iPad Apps. I thought it was a really useful too – being able to map Apps to activities – I thought it a really helpful too. With that in mind, I wanted to be able to use it as a poster myself but whilst I thought it was great I didn’t however quite agree with some of the App choices. I wanted different categories too that related more to the use I thought would be useful in UK schools, hence I created my own version from scratch in Photoshop which I share below."
