PicStory For iPad Is A Comprehensive Photo Management App With An Amazing UI | Redmond Pie | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

"I would feel quite confident in going out on a limb and guessing that most owners of the iPad use the device in some form to scroll through albums of images and photographs.The Photos app on the iPad offers some support for organizing images, but for those who crave additional power over their life through pictures then it is possible that the PicStory iPad app is what you have been searching for. PicStory is an iPad-only app that aims to let users have powerful control over the elegant organization and management of photographs that are stored on the device. One of the great things about the app is that it can be used at varying levels of intensity and doesn’t necessarily require total control of every aspect to be a useful installation."

Video: Teachers and students as media producers

"Need a quick, fun dose of inspiration? Check out this video, The Infinite Thinking Machine, a new (well, technically, it’s re-launched) Internet TV show for educators. This eight-minute episode focuses on teachers and students as media producers, creating photos, videos, animation, and multi-media projects as storytelling devices. Produced by CUE, the host is Ramsey Musallam, and executive producers are Mike Lawrence and Chris Fitzgerald Walsh. It’s well worth the time."

Vialogues : What is Writing, Anyway?

Vialogues : What is Writing, Anyway? | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

Kevin Hodgson says, "We often have discussions about whether or not technology and media and connectiveness is changing our perceptions of what it means to write."

 

And so begins a comment riff between us (I hope among us if others will join in) on his found poem/video "What is Writing, Anyway?".  All of this is made 'frictionless' (read--easy) by Vialogues ( https://vialogues.com/).  Vialogues allows you to upload videos, use youtube videos or borrow from others on the site which you can mark up.  The annotations can include Q&A, multiple choice questions, and comments/threaded discussion.  Comment and threaded discussion are the star attrations of the show.

 

Here is vialogue based on a video that one of Kevin's students created for his class this past Spring:  https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/4012 ; I am sure Kevin and his student would appreciate some useful comments and discussion.  It is open to the public for the moment so play nice.

 

It should be obvious to any teacher how this jacks into our students' love of video/YouTube/Vimeo/allthings vid.  We have hacked the vid with text, but I think this is quite a bit better than the generic and juvenile commentariat at YouTube otherwise known as troll magnets. 

 

I would like to see people use this to open up their workflow as they comment on how they used certain tools in making videos and what thought and work choices they made. Think of it as a director's commentary to a DVD.  I would really value such and I think Vialogues can manage it.

 

I would like to see the addition of other embeddable media here: slideshares, scribr, box, dropbox, but I am happy for now.  And it is FREE.

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative | Educational Technology and New Pedagogies | Scoop.it

For many of us, technology plays a crucial role in how we obtain and process information and apply our knowledge on a daily basis. As a father who often finds himself having to share his smartphone and tablet with his three young sons, I can tell you that for our students, things are no different. And because children are often exposed to technology at an early age, their cognitive abilities are even more wrapped up in technology than ours.

Forget GDrive: Bitcasa Gives You Unlimited Online Storage

Robin Good: Forget GDrive coming next week. I have just been testing for a few days Bitcasa, which promises unlimited storage for $10/month (free while in Beta) and I must say I have been quite impressed.

 

Once installed on your Mac or PC, Bitcasa makes itself available to "cloudify" any folder/directory you want with a simple click and then it works in the background to upload and copy all of your files to the your infinite storage drive.

 

You can sync-up different computers and portable devices and get access to all of your precious files from anyone.

 

To show how eager Bitcasa really is to receive tons of your files and to backup hundreds of gigabytes of stuff, Bitcasa has installed on my Mac a little utility (with my approval) that automatically offers me, everytime I plug in an external hard disk, to cloudify its contents. 

 

I have already cloudified over 20GB without a hitch and now I can see them from all my computers. 

 

If you need to work or collaborate with othe people, are on the move, and can't carry around a suitcase of hard drives, Bitcasa may provide an ideal solution at a very accessible cost.

 

Very promising. 9/10

I fail to understand something:
Bitcasa offers a solution that claims to be more convenient than the GDrive\Skydrive\Dropbox solution and offers unlimited storage for $10 a month. However, in an interview they admit that most users are not using that much storage.... So why would I chose to pay $120 yearly when I can pay google for example $60 for 100GB????

Moreover, the way Bitcasa is designed, the switching cost between services is not high so in case I need to upgrade my plan with Google to something that costs $120 I can easily switch to Bitcasa or to whomever gives the best plan and convenience.

I just can't see the huge added value of this service.

I am willing to admit that engineering-wise it looks good.
Robin Good's comment, December 25, 2012 7:00 AM
As I see it by going to the Bitcasa website, the service is still "free" for anyone signing up now, plus I consider "infinite" storage decidedly better for anyone who has several hundred gigabytes of stuff that doesn't want to lose easily. The real issue is: how much time does it take to upload all that stuff anyhow?

The Future of Collaborative Social Video Curation Is Here: Zeeik Paves The Way

Robin Good: Zeeik is a new web-based video curation site with a unique slant and some very innovative ideas.

 

Its key features provide some very stimulating ideas on how in the future you may go about curating, navigating and collecting video to create a guide or make sense of a specific topic.

 

1) Collaborative Curation

First of all, Zeeik is designed in a way that puts the topic of curation at the center, while allowing multiple users to contribute, search, find and select which video clips would be most appropriate for it.

"Users collaboratively make zeeiks in request-and-replay manner." Zeeiks are also similar to what a video wiki would probably be like, as they allow multiple editors to contribute and shape the final content.


2) Topic and Level Navigation

Second, Zeeik introduces (thank you guys for showing curation startups where is the next gear) a rudimental but still highly effective navigational gizmo, allowing any topic to be easily segmented into many sub-topics and levels. This new visual navigation addition is of the essence in providing a feature that expands the potential of curated content of orders of magnitude. A navigational tool that allows you to intuitively navigate from topic to topic and from high-level view to a very detailed one is exactly what I would like to see show-up across the board of content curation tools in the near future.  

 

3) Search, Collect and Excerpt Video Content

Third, Zeeik makes easy and effective to search video content on any topic, to tap into your video assets rapidly and to trim and excerpt specific sections from any video you decide to include. 

 

These ingredients by themselves make Zeeik a truly innovative content curation tool, and while its interface and usability may leave a lot to be desired, I think it deserves high praise for finally breaking new ground. 

 

Zeeiks can be easily linked or embedded into any web site or blog and can be used to create catalogues, guides, tutorials, textbooks, music album, or just about anything that is video-based.
