Easy tool for recording audio with slides. I don't like that you can flip ahead thus getting the audio off sync with the slides, but it looks like you can control that.

Want To Create Interactive Moodle Content? | Using technology in teaching & learning | Scoop.it
Recently there was, what could have been, a fairly benign thread posted on the Moodle forums about how to create more interactive lessons. JP, the thread originator, was simply looking for a way to bring a little more life to the Moodle experience.

As can be expected from the Moodle community, there were others who immediately dove in and offered help and ideas – specifically by looking at all of the features available in the lesson module. However, JP was looking for something even beyond this.

The 8 Best Moodle Plugins for Course Presentation & User Experience | Using technology in teaching & learning | Scoop.it
Moodle Plugins are the most efficient way to get the most out of your learning management system. Think of your LMS like a smartphone - it does everything you need it to do, but sometimes you need a little more! If you want entertainment, you have a plethora of game apps to choose from. If you want to tap into social media, there's the Facebook app. If you want to work on you physical or mental health, there's a long list of apps that you can download that will assist you. Apps take our smartphones from a piece of technology, to a virtual hub for your everyday life. Moodle plugins are like applications - adding them to your LMS will tranform your online learning experience, allowing you to get the most out of your LMS.

Even though the article is long, and does seem to repeat what it is saying, this is an interesting read.  Why are our teachers not being taught so that they can support the needs of our children in the 21st century.  We need to come up with more engaging ways of exciting our children about learning, and about their futures, so that they see tertiary education as more than just a ticket......

11 Reasons why teachers don't use technology | Using technology in teaching & learning | Scoop.it

A recent survey reported in the UK newspaper the The Telegraph stated that as many as half of the teachers consulted for the survey said they rarely use technology in the classroom. This came as no surprise to me, but what did surprise me when I shared the article with my professional networks, was the number of trainers and teachers who actually blamed lazy and unmotivated teachers for this.

Reflections on my experiences of being a learning technology trainer.

Abdulsalam Al-Mukradi's curator insight, February 29, 11:10 AM

The use of technology is a big issue among teachers and educators. Whener we talk or discuss the use of technology, most teachers start mombling and react to the idea in a passive way. Some may be most teachers tend to say that technology is a waste of time, effort, and result to a boring classroom atmosphere. They also complain about the absence of some the necessary equipment for teacher and students to use in the classroom. The other reason they mention is the time that they need to spend preparing for the use of technology. In my opinion technology is the key of delivering information to studnets faster and enriching their knowledge and making the students the teachers feel great, supportive and enthusiastic to keep on studying and learning new ideas.I would highly recomment to every teacher to start and keep using technology to make thier teaching style unique.
