I agree Andrew. Tools are tools and it's all about how you use them that counts.

Good question Thomas! I think it is an ongoing dance between learning good storytelling and then learning the tools for maximum impact.
Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:44 AM

After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!

Video and the web are coming together. Experience both like never before with TouchCast: a new medium that looks like video, but feels more like the web.

TouchCasts are completely clickable. A TouchCast is a video that is fully browsable, responsive, and alive. Webpages, images, and an assembly of video Apps (vApps) can be tapped for a two-way video experience.

If you love Glogster for creating presentations and if you wish to insert a Voki "speaker" in your presentation, here is the way how you can do it.

The post gives you clear step-by-step instructions how it can be done. This may be particularly appealing to younger students.
