A cool little tool that easily makes a picture using your quote (either your own or someone else's). There are background templates (though not very many) to choose from. You only have to type the quote, click on Create and...voilà, you have an image which you can insert in your presentation to add a nice touch.

Above you can see an example made by me.

Communicates to the whole brain and expands  the impact of the quote.

Excellent source!  Fun to use.

iDesktop.tv provides a really useful and user friendly service for anyone who wants to use video clips from sources like YouTube, but doesn't want their students looking around at anything unsuitable, or for anyone who has ever found a really useful clip, only to go back later and find it has moved or been removed.

 

You can use the site to search through a huge collection of videos from various video sharing sites and when you find something you like the site will download and convert it to a file type of your choosing.

A very useful tool for k-12 virtual, flipped, or blended classrooms.

Invaluable for grabbing video you want to use repeatedly...

Lisa Purvin Oliner's curator insight, August 12, 2013 9:55 AM

Speed is an Invaluable Commodity in Classrooms and Lecture Halls: Students' Need for Readiness and Efficiency


To convey knowledge to the students we currently teach, over preparation is still better than too little. iDesk.tv is one way to appear totally prepared and knowledgeable about the world outside of classrooms and lecture halls. Because most students engage social media at hyper-speed, and this disposition is ingrained and forecasts how they will 'work' in the future, facilitators need to prove that their desktops are organized to meet that relatively new inclination and perception.


iDesk allows facilitators to take advantage of teachable moments (Havighurst, 1952) or switch media quickly to prevent digression or loss of direction toward a thematic objective. Furthermore, allowing students to see their Symbaloo homepage (for instance) prepared for a lesson unit or entire course with tiles that are subject specific and linked to pertinent lesson materials, theories, and videos (as on iDesk) models how they too can harness the semiotic power of their multimodality (Hull & Nelson, 2005) worlds. Also, don't be too quick to judge this attitude unfriendly to speakers of other languages because visual online preparedness allows instructors to return to subject matter seamlessly if informal assessment proves the need.
