A great slide presentation that focuses on images in your presentations - how and where to get them, how to enhance them, how to work with fonts and colors. Finally, there is a long list of image editing sites which will help you do the job.

John Dalziel's curator insight, February 27, 2:05 AM

Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office.

This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Drive, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office.
Unlike all of Microsoft’s other Office products, Office Online at office.com is completely free.
This is Office Online’s biggest advantage over desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

It  can be used on all the PCs you want without paying for additional boxed copies or subscribing to Office 365, Microsoft’s subscription service for Office.
Because it’s a web application that runs in your browser, Office Online will run on everything, from Linux PCs and Chromebooks to iPads and Android tablets.

It doesn't require any special plug-in and works in any popular browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari — not just Internet Explorer.
Should you use Office Online?

Well, that’s up to you. If you’d like a completely free version of Office it’s a compelling option.

On the other hand, you may need the more advanced features in the desktop version of Office.
NOTE: it does provide access to learners who can't afford the desktop version of office.

Andy Kenworthy's curator insight, February 27, 3:21 AM

This could be very handy for editing documents on the move when a desktop or laptop running the full suite isn't available and for collaborating with a team. I will be looking in to this further.

CERT's insight:

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning.
For instance outcomes on rubrics are measured by competence of use and most importantly the quality of the process or product.
Bookmarking a resource is of no value if the resource is inappropriate, invalid, out of date or inaccurate.
Bloom's Digital Taxonomy lends itself to problem and project based learning where the student must work through the entire process of development and evaluation. The 21st Century Fluency Projects 6D model for Solution Fluency is an excellent example of how to work through the project or problem based learning frame work.

Interesting article though most of what it describes is already possible. Also not much mention of augmented reality, which I think will become increasingly important.

Mauricio Martinez's curator insight, February 10, 5:47 AM

Some teachers still think of technology as "the future of classrooms", however, these innovations are already playing an important role in education. As the article says, "It's not about technology; it's about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools.".

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.
