this was bound to happen and provides kids with the actual tools they need to get ahead in the world of tomorrow, we just need to spread access and ensure they receive real info and not pseudo science online

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | ICTs in Education | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

Slides from Nik Peachey concerning iPad use in the context of one-to-one teaching. As well as providing some practical tips there are some useful links to tools that will enable students to practise diverse literacy skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 27, 2014 12:10 AM

Here is a great presentation filled to the brim with simple ideas for using iPads - from Tellagami (recorded animation) to TodaysMeet (backchannel) to Fotobabble (recording voice over a picture). Some of these are ones we have used at school before, others open up new channels we are yet to explore!

The context of learning is changing and Silvia Rosenthal (@langwitches) shares another great presentation. Her focus is on the change (and the challenge of that), the opportunity it presents to rethink learning and the growth potential as we amplify!

Super simple and great sharing opportunities.

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.
