Voki on Glogster

Voki on Glogster | Digital literacy, 21st Century learning | Scoop.it

Is there a way to embed a Voki on Glogster?  This is a very common question that we get from teachers! Unfortunately, the answer is no, you can’t embed a Voki on Glogster. But, we found a different way...

If you love Glogster for creating presentations and if you wish to insert a Voki "speaker" in your presentation, here is the way how you can do it.

The post gives you clear step-by-step instructions how it can be done. This may be particularly appealing to younger students.

How To Create A Screensaver From A PowerPoint Presentation

How To Create A Screensaver From A PowerPoint Presentation | Digital literacy, 21st Century learning | Scoop.it

Whatever the reason may be, you can easily convert your PowerPoint presentation slides into a screensaver. There are many third-party applications that offer conversion and some even charge some money for it. However, if you follow the instructions in this post, you won’t have to pay or download any application or program. You can easily set a slide or two—or even your whole presentation—into a screensaver that you can always see on your desktop.

These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing.

However like with everything else, technology has increased your choice of tools.
