Apple have recognised the particular market we represent.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 6, 2013 3:51 PM

Good, but for teachers in New Zealand the curriculum and professional development still needs to be connecged to these resources. Teachers can do this, of course, but wouldn't it be nice if there were some resources available which make those connections?

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:56 AM

But are these apps really any good for education?

Make Presentations Different

Make Presentations Different | Education | Scoop.it

With SlideIdea, presentations are no longer a one-man show. SlideIdea gives presenters the tools to engage their audience through their audience’s smart phones, laptops, and tablets. Each SlideIdea presentation is provided a unique URL (i.e, www.sld.im/12345 ). Regardless of the location, an audience can simply input the URL into their internet browser and then immediately follow along with slides, participate in polls, ask questions, or even network.

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Não chega? Muito bem: com Slideideia pode ainda gravar as suas falas durante a apresentação. Excelente!

Otra forma de hacer presentaciones....

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, April 9, 2014 1:45 AM

This is an excellent idea for letting kids work through your presentations at their own pace. I wonder how it integrates with Keynote for importing existing work?

I am definitely going to have a play with this one.

"In the recently released iOS7, there is glitch that enables nested folders to be created. At The iTeach Hub, we have found nested folders to be useful on our iPads. We believe that the ability to make nested folders in iOS7, would be particularly useful for educators, therapists and caregivers. We want to share the procedure to create nested folders and the benefits that they offer."
