10 key elements for page optimization in 2015 (Infographic) | Student Support | Scoop.it
A few months ago, I shared a very good infographic that explains how to optimize your website pages and blog posts. After looking at it several times, I felt that there were a few things missing. So, I did some research to find a more detailed infographic. SurePayroll's caught my attention. It's really well done!

I want to highlight one unique style that I hope becomes a significant part of presentations moving forward.

What is it, exactly? It’s a hybrid of a photo and video. You can also refer to it as an animated GIF, but don’t let the negative GIF stereotype destroy your perspective.

iPad App of the Week: Flickr | iPad Insight

iPad App of the Week: Flickr | iPad Insight | Student Support | Scoop.it
Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.

This week’s pick is Flickr.  A classic iPad app that recently went through a major update.  With Flickr you can upload, access, organize, edit, and share your photos from any device, from anywhere in the world.  Flickr has always had a special place in my heart as I initially used it to share all of our baby photos with family members when our first son was born over 12 years ago.  Since then, there have been so many other resources available to store your photos, especially in the cloud, that I haven’t used it in years–that was until the recent version 4.0 update caught my eye.   The newest update brings with it a welcomed addition of features to an already powerful app.

5 Math Apps for Math Averse Students | Edudemic

5 Math Apps for Math Averse Students | Edudemic | Student Support | Scoop.it
Math is a core subject and one used in everyday life, especially throughout the K-12 years. Students who enjoy and generally perform well in math classes will have their choice of an amalgam of apps to aid them in both study and enjoyment. There are, however, a fair number of students who simply don’t like to do math at school and who certainly won’t easily be tempted to do extra math at home. Luckily, there are a series of apps available to help math averse students. Some of these are geared towards students who need visual stimulation such as colors, patterns, and graphics to remain engaged in general math concepts. Other students, those who are geared toward auditory stimulation, will be interested only if sound and music come into play. In addition to focusing on multiple communication preferences, some math apps disguise learning in the form of game play. Students who have fun while learning can greatly benefit from these math ‘games’, especially if they are in the younger grades.
