Forma innovadora de cómo combinar dos recursos digitales para implementar a través del juego con realidad aumentada, el sistema eLearning complementado con reactivos, mismos que se podrían adecuar para el desarrollo de contenidos en el área de las ciencias sociales por ejemplo. Esto requiere de equipos multidisciplinarios y equipos de producción de materiales didácticos interactivos, tal vez ya contemplados por las empresas dedicadas a la producción de software educativo en línea.

eduCanon | Designed for use in blended learning environments

eduCanon | Designed for use in blended learning environments | Digital tools for education | Scoop.it

eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

Class Charts - seating plans and behavior management software

Class Charts - seating plans and behavior management software | Digital tools for education | Scoop.it

Seating charts are an essential part of any good teacher’s tool kit. They help organise students into appropriate learning groups and minimise behaviour issues – the class teacher asserts their authority before the lesson even begins. We take seating charts a step further. You can optionally include and display key data (eg SEN, reading age) about each pupil which is used to intelligently position pupils in the classroom to maximise learning.

Begoña Iturgaitz's curator insight, January 10, 4:06 AM

As I  expect positive behaviour and engagement from my students,  I find it pretty useless. However,  it may be greatly interesting for keeping records on, for instance,  learning to learn sklills or procedures; for mastering processes.....etc.

Voxy - Learn a language from life

Voxy - Learn a language from life | Digital tools for education | Scoop.it

We don’t believe learning should be based on static content, memorizing verb charts, grammar rules, or learning vocabulary words out of context. That’s why we create engaging exercises with authentic language used by native speakers. We don't write lessons for you, we curate real-world discourse and turn it into lessons adapted to your language level.

You can access it through any device, but the mobile app looks really great and it's one of the first I've seen that really seems to be drawing on the multimedia capabilities of mobile and tablet devices for language learning.
