Baiba Svenca's curator insight, March 15, 12:20 AM

Even though Adobe is not a free software, their product InDesign lets you stand out by creating stunning presentations. Watch the tutorial that will give you an insight into the creative process.

InDesign is aimed at academics but in my opinion it can successfully be used in general education as well.

Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, Today, 12:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.

How To Use The SAMR Model For Classroom Tasks - Edudemic

How To Use The SAMR Model For Classroom Tasks - Edudemic | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it

"The SAMR (Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition) model is a framework used to evaluate the technology being employed (or that you’d like to employ) in your classroom. Basically, it offers a way for you to look at how technology integration might affect teaching and learning. Accordingly, many teachers and administrators who are in the process of choosing between classroom technology options employ the SAMR model to determine what might be worthwhile and what wouldn’t."

Or the time when Bill Weasley used this incantation to make a stack of scrolls disappear while cleaning up after a meeting of the Order of the Phoenix during Harry's first night at number twelve, Grimmauld Place?

Most ebook sellers try to lock you into a particular ecosystem. If you don't mind buying from the same company every time, this isn't too bad, but you lose the ability to comparison shop, as well as making it difficult to switch apps. Fortunately, there's a way around this problem.

Becoming A Whole Teacher

Becoming A Whole Teacher | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it

"In his essay Two Minds, Wendell Berry, unsurprisingly enough, offers up two tones of thought produced by two kinds of “mind”—Rational, and Sympathetic.

 

One is driven by logic, deduction, data, and measurement, the other by affection and other wasteful abstractions—instinct, reverence, joy, and faith."
