Nik's QuickShout: Create Online Social Interaction Around Videos

Nik's QuickShout: Create Online Social Interaction Around Videos | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

Grockit provides a really simple and fast way to build social tasks and interaction around any video from YouTube and it does it in a way that is much more suitable for delivery to students, as the interface removes many of the distractions that a direct link to YouTube would include.

The idea is good but I fear that the interface is too complex. Firt I should focus on the video and later on Q&A and discussions.

This could help with the education article. About how people learn, it's a new twist on interactive learning.    -tanah

This looks like a great tool with lots of prompts to inspire student writing activities and a platform to enable them to share and interact around what they write.

magnus sandberg's curator insight, October 1, 4:23 AM

I don't know how I feel about Classcraft. Is it a way to make school more exciting or is it a way to make games more boring. Or both? Or neither? I dont know, but it certainly is interesting!

Lauren Lewis's comment, April 4, 1:00 PM
La presentadora mencionó un estudio hecho reciente por PollNation que examinó la adquisición/aprendizaje del lenguas con el uso de flashcards en aparatos mobiles versus los flashcards tradicionales hecho por mano en papel, por ejemplo. El estudio encontró que los flashcards mobiles con ciertas aplicaciones para iPhone, iPad, Android etc. produjeron resultados mejores y positivos que los flashcards tradicionales. Este es solo un ejemplo de cómo el aprendizaje de lenguas con la tecnología, particularmente con los teléfonos inteligentes o tablets, promueve la adquisición. Los flashcards de aplicaciones son inteligentes y tienen la capacidad de recordar tus palabras, tu progreso, o por ejemplo, notar ciertas palabras para practicar más. Son capaces de proveer apoyo del aprendizaje individual de manera práctica, fácil, lógica, y portable.
