Presentar datos en forma de gráficos o infografías es una manera visual y atractiva de mostrar información. Existen multitud de aplicaciones para esto, pero Piktochart es una herramienta muy interesante para que el alumnado (especialmente el de primaria) se inicie en la presentación visual de datos y el diseño de infografías sencillas.

DIGITAL YOUTH

In this article, Nicky Hockly and Gavin Dudeney consider just how 'digital' today's youth really

are, and what this means for language teachers

 

Many young people today seem to be permanently plugged into iPods or glued to their mobile

phones or FaceBook pages. These 'digital youth' often make us; the (slightly older) generation

feel hopelessly fuddy-duddy and out of date when it comes to technology. But how accurate is

this image? How sussed are the younger generation really, when it comes to technology? Let’s

take a look at the evidence.
