Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 7:09 PM

This is useful tool for those teaching World History, whether the classroom is flipped or not. It provides images of the locations as well as descriptions. Teachers could refer to this site when they are in a unit where one of these places are referenced. They could use it to show what the location looks like today.

Vermutlich werden Schüler in Zukunft ganz ohne Tafel und Kreide unterrichtet. Stattdessen werden die Aufgaben dann - wie in der Waldschule in Hatten - über ein Tablet-PC gelöst.

Eight Brilliant Minds on the Future of Online Education

"It's hard to know when it will happen but at some point this will be transformative. The first stage is when it does what was being done before but better. That's what is happening now. But we're going to where we don't need to have two semesters, classes of same length, grading on the basis of things called exams. You can't think of another industry where a list of top 10 providers is perfectly correlated to what it was in 1960."

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 8, 2013 1:01 PM

The iPad can be a brilliant motivational tool for children in the classroom. The ease-of-use, coupled with the speed that you can get results means that it can be the perfect tool for integrating into your literacy planning. And, as many schools don’t have 1:1 tablet computers it can also mean that the collaborative and group aspect of the technology can be harnessed.

I’ve been working with teachers who are developing the writing process in an attempt to motivate their boy writers. We have been looking at the writing process and working out where the enthusiasm lags, or where skills need developing. This part of the process is important, reflecting on why the children are stalling, or on what the challenges might be really helps the planning process.

Finally we looked at what apps the schools have, what apps the teachers are confident with and, most importantly, what apps would support the different ‘stumbling blocks’ the children face.

Cómo crear una presentación interactiva de fotos en HTML5 | Nuevas tecnologías aplicadas a la educación | Educa con TIC | Foreign Languages Teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

La mayoría de las presentaciones de fotos, pases de diapositivas, etc. que usamos en nuestros blogs están realizadas con herramientas 2.0 que utilizan la tecnología Flash. Esto puede suponer un problema si queremos visualizarlos en los dispositivos IOS, cada día más utilizados por docentes y alumnos. Por eso, nos puede interesar la receta de hoy, os explicamos cómo crear una pase de fotografías, un slide en lenguaje HTML5, apto para visualizarse en todo tipo de dispositivos y en la web. La herramienta que vamos a utilizar es muy sencilla y no requiere registro previo.

Cómo se hace

Entramos en la web Slidemypics y, sin necesidad de registrarnos, podemos comenzar a crear nuestro pase de fotos. Para ello seleccionamos el sitio web donde debemos tener alojadas las fotos. Son estos: Picassa, Flickr, Facebook, Photobooket y Smugmug. Una vez seleccionadas las fotografías desde una de estas plataformas, las organizamos desde la opción "Organize photos"
