Prezi - The Zooming Presentation Editor | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

This is a great tool for creating dynamic presentations that allow you to highlight specific content. They can also be embeded into webpages. A great tool for creating assignment reports too.

As much as I love Prezi and will avoid using PowerPoint ever again, I wonder how quickly students can pick up the skills (even from the 1-2-3 at http://prezi.com/learn/ ) to create an effective presentation without going overboard on visual aids. Most of our courses are only 10 weeks and I just mentioned Prezi as an excellent alternative but not for our upcoming seminars in just over a week's time. So how long did it take your students to pick up Prezi?

Något nytt i denna artikel om det "nya" digitala samhället? #digiskol

Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, August 21, 2014 2:22 PM

People always seem to be complaining about this... our children are distracted... who wants to read when they can play games, but in effect children tend to copy their parents. By instilling a passion for reading from a young age we can try to balance out the claim that the young children do not like books or reading. One story a day... just like the apple, helps develop the creativity in children. It doesn't hurt by having the children making up their own stories and writing them together with their parents!

Why organizations need an e-learning plan

Why organizations need an e-learning plan | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

"The main argument for developing an e-learning plan has to lie in the benefits it can bring: clarity of purpose and measurable goals for the use of technology for teaching; setting priorities; identifying needs and resources; improved quality of teaching and learning; greater student accessibility; and above all, if done well, buy-in and commitment from faculty, instructors and administrators for the intelligent use of technology for teaching."

The Future of Mobile Learning

The Future of Mobile Learning | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

"The mobile learning device of the future won’t be a separate piece of equipment. Rather, mobile learning in the future will be an active part of the student’s world. Smartphones, televisions, tablets, in-car telematics and even household appliances will always be connected to the student’s academic life."
