5 Ways Schools Can Think Like Startups

5 Ways Schools Can Think Like Startups | EduTech - technology | Scoop.it

"This is the age of the startup. The age where a teenager can change the world from his basement, and almost daily new apps and platforms are launched with the modest goal of, well, changing the world. In this age, Pete Cashmore and Mark Zuckerberg have more social capital than Ford or General Mills... So maybe the startup mentality has something to offer education–some lessons to not only pursue reform, but to understand itself better in the process.

Lino's curator insight, July 12, 2013 4:13 AM

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.

 

De uso libre. (No tenemos que registrarte o iniciar sesión para acceder a ella).
