This seems to be one of the microblogging platforms of choice for teens at the moment. It centres around creative expression and although you can use it through the browser it has been designed for use on mobile. Great for creating video, audio and image up dates. Very nicely designed platform.

Elizabeth Catania's curator insight, November 25, 2013 2:05 PM

I think it is so exciting to teach English pedagogy through multimedia. New Literacies as they call it, is so innovative and truly allows a student to make deeper, more menaingful connections from what they already know to what they are working towards learning. Knowledge is only power when you can use it and apply it as you share what you know with others!

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, May 2, 2014 5:25 AM

This tools enables you to upload videos from a range of sites such as Coursera and You Tube and then take synchronized notes. This means that as you create a note, a time is allocated to it and by clicking on a particular note you'll be able to link back to that part of the video. VideoNot.es syncs automatically with Google Drive so you can access your notes and videos from there. You can also send your notes to Evernote. It's very simple to use and easy to see the potential for both teachers and students. 

 

I came across this tool through Russell Stannard's eNewsletter. Russell creates training videos for teachers and has just uploaded  a short series relating to VideoNot.es. If you're interested you can view the VideoNot.es recordings at www.teachertrainingvideos.com Click on 'latest videos' in the menu bar at the top of his page and you'll find yourself in the right place.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.
