The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger

The Complete Guide To Use Better Pinterest | ProBlogger | Online Learning Design - the Tools | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this long and useful article by ProBlogger about Pinterest:
"I believe that blogs in any niche, not just DIY crafty blogs, are missing out on huge amounts of traffic and exposure if they are ignoring Pinterest. If you want to see your blog grow in leaps and bounds in 2013, you’ve got to pay attention to Pinterest.

I want to make sure that you fully understand the power of Pinterest, I’m going to start with the very basics before digging into the good stuff that will get you the blog success you’re looking for.
At least read through the basics and info about using Pinterest accounts so that you have a better understanding of what’s going on and how to apply that to your blog.

Here’s what I’m going to cover:
- What is Pinterest?
- Why care about Pinterest?
- Basics of using Pinterest.
- Strategies for using your Pinterest account.
- Get your pins maximum exposure.
- Get more traffic to your blog using Pinterest.
- Pinterest tools for bloggers."

Each section is analyzed with many details. Read full interesting article here:

Pinterest is a Social Media powerhouse.  It takes a bit of work to keep up with PinEtiquette but it is well worth it.  We are up to 5 repins and 5-10 Likes or Board follows a day and growing.  There is Powere in those Pins!!

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers

Apps that rise to the top: Tested and approved by teachers | Online Learning Design - the Tools | Scoop.it

With the thousands of educational apps vying for the attention of busy teachers, it can be hard to sift for the gold. Michelle Luhtala, a savvy librarian from New Canaan High School in Connecticut has crowd-sourced the best, most extensive list of appsvoted on by educators around the country.

 

“I wanted to make sure we had some flexibility because there’s no one app that’s better than all the others,” Luhtala said. Some apps are best for younger students, others are more complicated, better suited for high school students. Many apps do one thing really well, but aren’t great at everything. Still others are bought, redesigned or just disappear — so it’s always good to know about an array of tools to suit the need at hand.

Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings

Recordium - Add Visual Notes to Audio Recordings | Online Learning Design - the Tools | Scoop.it
Recordium is a new iPad and iPhone for creating audio recordings. At first glance the app reminded me Sound Cloud. Like Sound Cloud, Recordium can be used to quickly create a spoken note or to record someone playing an instrument. Recordium can be used to trim the end or beginning of a recording. You can also snip out a middle portion of a recording and save it as a separate recording or trash it. Where Recordium gets interesting is in the annotation features. The app allows you to highlight and tag portions of your recordings. Your tags can even include pictures. Completed recordings can be shared to a number of services including Google Drive and Evernote.

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.
