Linda Dougherty's insight:

Just showed high school teens how to use this to make a mobile app for their study group.  They made a QRCode poster to share with their classmates.  Very cool way to introduce school groups to ORCodes and smartphone apps all bundled into one neat package!  Also, can see teachers and librarians using this as an alternate to a webpage or wiki.

Librarydoor: Voki - Avatars - Crazytalk and Other Pseudo Friends | Digital Tools for Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"......sample essential questions that could be used for research reports that are Common Core aligned, using Vokis, Xtranormal, Crazytalk, or other avatar generator tools.   For each question, notice the synthesis of "facts" required to answer the question.  If your teachers are crafting research to "fetch facts"  and not do anything with those facts, they are not Common Core aligned.   Higher level thought is developed by requiring kids to think, conclude and create something with their "facts." from Paige Jaeger

Linda Dougherty's insight:

Great combination of avatar apps like Voki and essential questions for "research projects"  Perfect share with those teachers who shudder at the thought of a written research assignment for their content areas.

Via Baiba Svenca, PuertoTICs, Edgar Mata, CERT, Alex Grech
Linda Dougherty's insight:

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Alex Grech's curator insight, October 9, 2013 4:18 PM

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.
