Robin Good's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:08 AM



HangoutMagix is a free web app which allows you to create the graphics elements to make your live sessions inside Google Hangouts look more professional.  


With HangoutMagix you can create an overlay bar with your name and title, add a call-to-action and display the name of your show with its logo.


The tool is very simple and intuitive to use. You select the graphic element you want to personalize, edit the text, change the colors, select a style among the pre-set ones and you are ready to save a transparent .PNG file that you can then import into Google Hangouts interface.


Free to use.

Opettaja-lehti - Seisovaa vettä

Opettaja-lehti - Seisovaa vettä | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Pasi Sahlberg elää niin kuin opettaa. Sahlbergin mielestä koulutuksen kehittäminen kompastuu johtajuusvajeeseen.

– Meillä on paljon opettajia ja rehtoreita, jotka olisivat valmiita tekemään isojakin asioita, jos olisi joku, joka tätä hommaa johtaisi.

Kansallinen suunnannäyttö, tuki ja koordinaatio ovat kadoksissa, uudistaminen näivettynyt paikallisten kehittämisprojektien pöheiköksi.

Suomalaisen koulun kehittämisessä ei saa pitää tärkeimpänä sitä, että olemme maailman parhaita.

– Pääasia on, että koulu kohtelee oikeudenmukaisesti kaikkia lapsia ja heidän vanhempiaan.

Ja jos halutaan mitata, on syytä oppia mittaamaan myös motivaatiota, hyvinvointia sekä halua elinikäiseen oppimiseen.
