PdfMasher

PdfMasher | ICTs in EFL | Scoop.it

PdfMasher is a tool to convert PDF articles (newspaper, academic) to MOBI or EPUB documents. Most ebook readers support PDF files natively, but it's often a real pain to read those documents because we don't have font size control over the document like we have with native ebooks.

Artículo sobre el concepto de "flipped classroom" con ejemplos de recursos. Me parece un post muy clarito sobre el concepto y el uso de este concepto de E-A. Me gustaría dar mi opinión  fundamentada y reflexionada al respecto en un post... próximamente.

Tutorial avanzado de Prezi

Tutorial avanzado de Prezi | ICTs in EFL | Scoop.it

Prezi no deja de evolucionar y dar sorpresa a los cada vez más numerosos usuarios de esta aplicación.

Una de las quejas habituales es que Prezi permite deslizarse sobre las presentaciones o hacer Zoom sobre los diferentes objetos, pero no permite insertar efectos sobre las imágenes. Pues bien, ahora (todavía en Beta) se agrega la función de Fade In a los objetos insertados.

Tutorial avanzado, para los que ya han preparado alguna vez un Prezi

Miquel Loriz's curator insight, March 12, 2013 3:21 AM

Una magníica herramienta también para los presentadores. Ayuda a organizar y sintetizar, evitando las presentaciones "río de texto" tan abundantes como pesadas.

Olga Exposito's curator insight, March 14, 2013 4:51 AM

Muchos compañeros me dicen que no les gusta prezi por su efecto mareante, pero a mi me parece una herramienta muy atractiva y no sólo desde la estética, su potencial para focalizar la atención del alumno en la enseñanza a distancia me resulta muy útil. Estupendo por ello que siga progresando.
