This would be great for Pri EL teachers! :)

Riley Tuggle's curator insight, February 2, 2015 10:06 AM

I believe these five online services are extremely helpful for teachers that teach in huge schools that have hundreds of students per day. They can easily record an audio or video of something all the students have to do on a daily blog. I know they could just post something they wrote to tell the students what to do, but some kids learn visually rather than just reading. -RT

8 Unique Online Presentation Tools for Students

8 Unique Online Presentation Tools for Students | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

A great presentation is more than just a vehicle for delivering facts and information. You know this because when you've witnessed a great one you've walked away entertained, refreshed, and inspired.

Great presentations are a combination of carefully chosen visuals, concisely plotted information, and often a very simple approach meant to connect to an audience rather than overwhelm them with bullet points and embedded media. In such presentations, everything has a purpose and place.
