De ontwikkeling in de ICT en het onderwijs volgen elkaar in rap tempo op. Dit vereist van het onderwijs een eigentijdse blik op ICT. De programma’s van MeeMetICT bieden de faciliteiten om zowel de onderwijsinstelling als geheel, de docent en de leerling wegwijs te maken in het ICT landschap. ICT is nooit een doel op zich. Samen komen we tot een eigentijds en effectieve invulling van kennisoverdracht. Ons motto is dan ook om samen te werken aan beter onderwijs van morgen!
Having a nice design slide for a presentation is one thing that so many presenters want to have. Adding the page with unique element such as moving image, transition, is a good idea.

Using interactive maps in the classroom encourages exploration, invites curiosity and promotes spatial thinking. Interactive maps can be used to provide students with background knowledge to launch a unit, or they can be used as a starting point for digging deeper into any concept through research. Interactive maps can be used to explore a wide variety of topics in traditional ways, or they can be used creatively to help students visualize just about anything. Explore this collection of interactive maps, created with ThingLink and published on a Padlet Wall.

"Annie Murphy Paul said: according to the [American Association of School Librarians], schools’ top three filtered content areas are social networking sites, instant messaging and online chatting, and games. Such activities aren’t (necessarily) inappropriate or illegal, but they are big honking distractions, and if we want our young people to learn anything during the school day, they must be kept away from these sites."
We are now in the age of visual information where visual content plays a role in every part of life. As 65 percent of the population is visual learners, images are clearly key to engaging people in eLearning courses. Moving and still images have been included in learning materials for decades, but only now has faster broadband, cellular networks, and high-resolution screens made it possible for high-quality images to be a part of eLearning visual design. Graphic interfaces made up of photos, illustrations, charts, maps, diagrams, and videos are gradually replacing text-based courses.In this post, we will dig deep into some statistics and facts to further convince of why eLearning developers should embrace visuals when creating their courses.

FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.
