13 Easy-to-Use Tools for Creating Killer Visual Stories | Edtech | Scoop.it

Creating your own images is also an excellent tactic for re-purposing text-only content into enticing images. Here are some examples: Turn quotes into an interesting slideshow, post an event announcement on a pretty picture, place stats onto eye-catching graphs, give a blog post title some pizzaz, create an infographic about the history of your biz, create a catchy, custom featured image for a video, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Sample Student Learning Objectives For Hour Of Code - TeachThought

Sample Student Learning Objectives For Hour Of Code - TeachThought | Edtech | Scoop.it
You keep hearing about this hour of code thing, but you’re not a “hacker,” and aren’t real comfortable with teaching what you don’t know. Especially when it relates to technology and its fundamental programming.

You know this is some kind of “coding week.” You’ve seen our tips for integrating coding into the classroom. Now what to do? Turn students loose with Scratch or Codea or Kahn Academy? Well, maybe. Self-Directed Learning is a core learning fluency in an age of access.

This is a classic video from the University of Wisconsin-Madison that will open your empathy eyes and help you see (and hear) what it is like to use a screen reader. 


Accessibility is essential for all users. Section 508 (the ADA of the Internet) has been around for a long time.  UDL is making strides in course design.  Technology is improving... Still this information may be new to many.  Watch and imagine you were dependent on technology to read online.

This is a great point about "continuous partial attention."

Jodie Tighe's comment, March 1, 2014 6:02 PM
I find I'm in complete agreement about all of those bullet points. And I love the Oxford library shot. When I needed to concentrate hard as an undergrad, I studied in my university's Rare Book Room--it resembled the Oxford space in its lighting and high ceilings and bookshelves full of visually appealing books. I liked the climate control, which was done for the rare books, but the air always felt better to me in there (this was in the very humid South). The Rare Book Room also didn't have tables right against the bookshelves, which I think is a better design for not getting interrupted by someone looking for a book.
Rebecca Frazee's comment, March 2, 2014 11:49 AM
When I was an undergrad at U of Texas, I liked to study in the architecture library. Same type of space.
