Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Creating illustrations and infographics for ELT tasks

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Creating illustrations and infographics for ELT tasks | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Draw.io is one of my favourite tools and the one I use most for creating graphics and infographics. As someone who doesn’t draw very well and has only limited design abilities it has really helped me out a number of times and enabled me to produce professional looking illustrations, product mockups and teaching materials.

A recommendation for the free vocabulary learning system Duolingo, which also has a free iOS app, as a "supplement" to classroom activities.

Convert Your Photo and Picture into Cartoon effect in one click, directly Online and for Free.

 

Shona Whyte:

This seems like a trivial detail, but any teacher who has tried to get participants to make profiles which will help you identify them face-to-face (rather than upload photos of their cats, babies, or cars) will see the value.  It takes no time at all to upload a photo, choose your cartoon effect, and save the result.

Is There a Digital Divide or an Intellectual-Pedagogical One? | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

US educator Jackie Gerstein argues that lower-income learners have less access to digital technology for learning not only at home but also at school. 

 

What does this mean for our classrooms?

Not specific to language learners, but succinct coverage of essential issues in bite-sized chunks (digital identity, copyright and plagiarism, personal learning networks) which will be useful to teachers and learners alike.

Jackie Gerstein made a 2-minute video on the Flipped Classroom, "a model of learning based on the experiential learning cycle" using a tool called PowToon.

 

Shona Whyte:

It's too much too quick if you've never head of the flipped classroom, but otherwise it's a neat summary of the main elements of this teaching approach.

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper

Clip Any Web Page, Text or Link and Organize Into Collections with Evernote WebClipper | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Worth a look for language teachers - collect and share resources for teaching, or send students out on project work.

 

Robin Good: If you need to do research on a specific topic or need to easily collect and organize notes, web clippings and other content from the web into shareable "public" collections, you may want to consider Evernote (and in particular its Chrome extension and its Web Clipper feature).

Den Nicholson, has a short but useful tutorial just on this, with a couple of short video clips that can give you immediately an idea of whether Evernote could be a good addition to your curator's toolkit.

 

Useful. 7/10

SlidePresenter - free online multimedia presentations

SlidePresenter - free online multimedia presentations | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

Educational Technology Guy:

"SlidePresenter is an online presentation service. It has a free account that is full-featured and the service allows you to create videos that are synced with PowerPoint presentations. It is similar to Knovio.

SlidePresenter can be used to create presentations for use by educators in the classroom that can then be reviewed by students at a later date for review or reinforcement or to create training sessions that people can view on their own time. Students can also use it for class projects.

The free account limits videos to 15 min (similar to most of these services) but that is a good way to make sure your presentation is focused and concise. Each presentation can be tagged, embedded in other sites, and easily shared via social media."
