Bart van Maanen's curator insight, July 14, 2:54 AM

Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.

Julie Cumming-Debrot's curator insight, July 22, 2:25 AM

Looks like a very interesting tool here.  Thanks for sharing Nik.

Joe Shimp's curator insight, July 25, 8:52 AM

3 Ways EdTech Is Moving Beyond the Classroom | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Lately all eyes seem to be on edtech, specifically technology’s role in education, especially in terms of how new offerings are reshaping the classroom. New tools are meant to help improve educators’ teaching abilities, help enhance the actual learning process and also help students become more tech-savvy. But while such tools are important to the overall education ecosystem, technology can also make an impact long before and after a lesson takes place."
