Producing Infopics

Producing Infopics | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Learning in Hand Show #30 is about making infopics. An infopic is a photo with text layered on top that is designed to communicate a message. Watch the video to see examples and to learn about tools and techniques for making your own.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
This is episode 30 of Tony Vincent and his Learning in Hand, a wonderful resource for digital literacy and keeping track with what's happening in IT educational trends.

You usually remember a photo better than you remember words, right? Visuals are more easily retained in memory than words. Pictures grab our attention faster than text. So how about we pair words with a picture to help us remember and convey information in an appealing way?

How to Use Padlet: A Fantastic Tool for Teaching

How to Use Padlet: A Fantastic Tool for Teaching | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Padlet is a versatile, easy to use tool for every teacher’s toolkit. Let’s learn the basics. At the bottom of this post, I have a Padlet that is temporarily open for you to post and share your favorite edtech tools.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Vicky davies shares Richard Byrne, author of Free Technology for Teachers, experiences in using this collaborative tool. 

You can: 
Type 
Record Your Voice 
Add a Hyperlink 
Add a Photo 
Add a Document 

The flexibility of this tool means you could have one class Padlet for the year and share resources and links throughout the year.

A concept that I liked.. in this artcicle is "Sandboxing"

Vicky goes.. "The first time you share it, have a sandbox Padlet. Sandboxing software means that you play with the software before you get down to “business.” Kids get a bit excited and sometimes silly. When they are done and get it out of their system, delete the Padlet and go onto the real activity."

How can I use Padlet in the Classroom?
You can:
1. Use it as a portfolio, or as a blog
2. Use it as a class backchannel and have discussions on it. 
3. Have students work a problem, and snap a picture of how they worked it.
