Maria Eva Blaiotta's curator insight, October 5, 2013 9:04 PM

Storytelling can contribute to academic success. It reminds us that the spoken word is powerful and that telling stories and listening to them can enhance our students’ ability to communicate their thoughts and feelings. Here are some digotal storytelling tools we can use in the classroom. 

Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, October 11, 2013 9:50 AM

Tools that can be used for storytelling at elementary/middle school or for students of EFL: Storykit, Educreations, Comic Life, Storybird, and Kerpoof

Thea Phillips's curator insight, October 15, 2013 8:06 AM

These are some great tools to get you into the heart of story telling . They help you to create the book of your dreams

Take A Look At What Happens Every Single Minute On The Internet

Take A Look At What Happens Every Single Minute On The Internet | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Early last year we learned that one hour of YouTube is uploaded every second. It was a bracing reminder of just how many people are spending their time online simultaneously.

 

Created by rewards site Qmee, the infographic "Online In 60 Seconds" is a pie chart that shows off the sheer amount of online activity that takes place every single minute. The amount of YouTube videos uploaded has already increased from January 2012's 60 hours per minute to 72. Additionally, over 1.8 million things are liked on Facebook, and 278 thousand bon mots tweeted. Not depicted in the chart: the amount of work that is going undone while all of these items are being viewed.

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

Many people are concerned about online privacy. And, conversely, many more are not, freely sharing any and everything on their favorite social networks, paying little attention to their mobile app settings, and happily letting Google track each keyword that they search.

It’s easy to get paranoid about all this stuff, but it does pay to be a little careful when using the internet, particularly when it comes to your personal safety. And while Twitter holds pride of place as one of the safest social networks, by taking the time to educate yourself on the security and privacy settings within your profile, being mindful of which third-party apps you allow access to your account and ensuring that you aren’t making it easy for burglars by constantly telling the world when you’re not at home, you can rest assured that you’re doing everything you can to keep your presence safe on Twitter.

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

By: Ronald C. Jones


As an online instructor, I can fulfill the minimum requirements of the university regarding interacting with students, or I can create a learning environment that facilitates student engagement in the classroom. Students enroll in online classes because of the need for scheduling flexibility, work-life-school balance, costs, and convenience. Although online learning holds many advantages, the potential drawbacks revolve around the lack of personal interaction between the instructor and student, as well as the student-to-student contact. Keeping students engaged in the course is a vital function of an effective instructor.
