Mary Clark's curator insight, April 11, 2:02 PM

While much of this can be done in Google docs, there are several features which can extend the conversation.  Teachers do need to share documents via email.

Es fundamental en este tiempo, como diría el sociólogo Richard Rorty "mantener las convesaciones en movimiento, como forma de investigación implícita". Estas herramientas ayudan.

This looks like a really nice tool to get students creating presentations and using their own voice to narrate. Great way to get students speaking.

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence | IT & education | Scoop.it

We all use Google to check if our writing is correct. We enter different phrases until we find the one that gives us most results – and this is the one we use in our own text. A smart approach, but not without its annoyances: revisiting the Google webpage breaks the flow of our writing, and its results often contain grammatical errors.

Krysta Hammond's curator insight, March 21, 4:26 PM

An interesting twist on varying your writing. But the comment was correct - there is a bit of a disruption to the writing process and they students need to be reminded that google is not without spelling mistakes!

Charlie Dare's curator insight, April 2, 6:56 AM
Writing a story line or script its usefull ~This looks like an interesting software tool which you can download and use to check your writing against the texts included in thousands of Google books. It can even detect context from the text you are writing and compare it to similar contexts. Interesting stuff!
Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, April 24, 8:36 AM

The application helps to check your writing (in English) not only regarding spelling and grammer but adds tools to check examples of the use of a certain phrase, context and synonyms, too.

Une alternative à PowerPoint, qui est de plus compatible avec les smartphones et les tablettes.

Filipe Cálix's curator insight, March 4, 2:15 PM

Strut é uma nova ferramenta grátis para criação de apresentações online capaz de o surpreender com a simplicidade de utilização e os resultados que gera.

Tudo o que precisa é de um browser, uma ligação à rede e alguma criatividade. Um dos seus pontos fortes e onde se destaca da concorrência é a manipulação das transições entre slides mas permite igualmente o uso de coleções nativas de efeitos.

Strut funciona perfeitamente em todos os suportes - PCs, Tablets e Smartphones - e não carece de registo. Pode gravar as apresentações no seu computador, importar e voltar a editá-las.

Trata-se ainda da versão Beta mas merece, desde já, a nossa maior atenção.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, March 4, 9:48 PM
Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a great tool for creating presentations and storing them online. It works in the web browser using html 5 and so will also work on most mobile devices. An excellent alternative to PPT.

A great resource for information on Flipped Learning.   Although based on the education system many of these techniques are being used for business training, meaning time spent in the classroom becomes more productive, interactive and meaningful.

Each SlideIdea presentation is provided a unique URL (i.e, www.sld.im/12345 ).

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Não chega? Muito bem: com Slideideia pode ainda gravar as suas falas durante a apresentação. Excelente!
