Adobe Slate: Amazing Storytelling Tool - ClassTechTips.com

Adobe Slate: Amazing Storytelling Tool - ClassTechTips.com | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it
 Adobe Slate is an iPad app that lets users of all ages create stories that can be viewed on any web browser.  Combining text, images and hyperlinks, students can transform research reports, persuasive writing, digital portfolios, you name it.
Adobe Slate is truly a creation tool and fits perfectly with my message of Tasks Before Apps.  With this app students can create content for authentic audiences and share their work with the real world.  The final product is truly beautiful and introduces students to the concept of web publishing and design.

6 of The Best iPad Apps for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 of The Best iPad Apps for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Here are some excellent iPad apps to enhance students creativity through digital storytelling. These are among the best apps teachers have been using with their students to create, narrate, and share stories. Using these apps students will be able to tell their own stories using a variety of multimedia materials that include: images, characters, avatars, photos, audio recordings, video clips and many more. The editing and creation functionalities differ from one app to the other but overall, the process is fairly simple and student friendly:

How to Remove Red Eye from Photos on iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily

How to Remove Red Eye from Photos on iPhone & iPad - OSXDaily | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Red Eye happens sometimes in photography, often if you’re shooting a subject while using the camera flash, or when a bright light is shining in their eyes. The appearance is striking and usually undesirable, with the subjects eyes literally glowing red. You may run into the red eye effect when taking pictures with any camera, but the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad all have a fantastic trick up their sleeve that lets you quickly remove red eye from just about any picture."

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

Educational Leadership:Teaching with Mobile Tech:Apps, Apps Everywhere: Are Any Good, You Think? | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it
The 11 apps I share here (not in order of my preference) fit these criteria. My students and I have successfully used them all, and so have many other teachers. This isn't an exhaustive list. With a million apps out there, even the most sophisticated ed tech user isn't going to know all the possibilities for useful tools. And thousands more new apps will likely be unveiled between the time this article was written and the day it's published. But this Top 11 list is a good start.

Social Media as a teaching tool: How to Tweet your students some knowledge - teachingwithipad.org | Social Media, Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"As teachers, the pull of social media on your students attention will already be well known to you. The online world exerts a magnetic lure on the attention of young people today, offering community and information sharing, entertainment and gossip in ways that often pull students away from the blackboard. Understanding this dynamic, some educators are now bringing social media into the classroom in surprising ways. By working with something your students already enjoy and don’t, perhaps, associate with learning, there are opportunities for creative teaching, as well as making genuine connection with your students."
