PowToon - Brings Awesomeness to your presentations

PowToon - Brings Awesomeness to your presentations | ICT Teacher | Scoop.it

PowToon is a brand new presentation tool that allows you to create animated presentations and cartoon style videos just by dragging and dropping.

You need to create an account first but wow - first impressions are very good indeed. Great animated features including text and cartoon images. Add your own images.

 

Simple timeline to see where features start and finish. Easy to add in audio track.

 

Range of impressive templates and styles eg TV Advert, presentation, video, infographic video and social clip

 

Free account gives you 30 presentations.

 

Upload to YouTube or download as video (not sure what file type). Embed code promised but not actually working (frustrating!)

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | ICT Teacher | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

I am a big fan of Scoop.it.  It adds value to my professional career.  I find so many things that I am interested in.  It is fun for me to try to understand the algorythm. I believe that curation will be a powerful tool for our future.

Thanks for all of your comments and responses to my question. Perhaps the relative success of using Wibbitz depends upon the platform (if that's the right term!) upon which the web page rests. Interesting idea though.
