Robin Good's comment, July 9, 12:12 AM
Hi Ana, first of all thanks for all the interesting stuff you find and scoop. You are a treasure trove. I'd appreciate though a bit more vetting of your sources and their content as to avoid articles like these which do provide a set of tools names but include no links, references, screenshots or an omogeneous way to review them. On the surface and from the title it looks great, but as you dig into it, you leave with quite a different impression. Given you are my trusted guide on some of these, I'd love for you to be a bit more severe in your selections in spite of quantity of scoops.

Anita Rissler's curator insight, April 2, 2013 3:36 AM

Om du inte tycker om att lägga på din egen röst på ett bildspel med förklaringar, ska du absolut titta på den svenskutvecklade gratistjänsten SlideTalk.net.  Idén är att man skriver text till varje bild som behöver förklaras. Sedan finns det sju svenska röster att välja bland som läser upp texterna (totalt finns 70 röster). Du kan påverka röstläget, lägga in pauser, välja snabbhet på talet och blanda manliga och kvinnliga röster.

Färdigställ bildspelet - från PowerPoint-fil eller enskilda bilder med texter - förhandsgranska, ändra och publicera. Med litet övning kan säkert texterna låta  mer naturliga och tydliga - http://bit.ly/10uTAGc.

Själva publiceringen tog ett litet tag. Bildspelet konverteras och blir en video som laddas upp till SlideTalks kanal hos YouTube. Med gratistjänsten blir videon offentlig. Om det här sättet att lägga på texter passar dig, kan du köpa ett årsabonnemang på tjänsten ganska billigt. En väldigt trevlig tjänst med svenska röster!

13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 2, 4:49 PM

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.
