Meet Pablo, the fastest way to create engaging images for your social media posts

Meet Pablo, the fastest way to create engaging images for your social media posts | STEM EDTech | Scoop.it
We've found engaging images to be quite like a magic wand on social media - wave a beautiful, eye-catching image, and watch the engagement on your updates go up, up, up!

And to make it even easier to design these images in a snap, we've built a new, free tool we'd love to share with you.

Meet Pablo, the simplest way to create engaging images for your social media posts, in under 30 seconds. :)

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

I've tried this out; it's very easy to use and makes very effective images. This is also a good way to make PowerPoint slides, just create and download. You can use Pablo's own stock images, any visuals from the web (observing copyright, of course), or your own .

Are we promoting creativity or boring our students to tears? Here are some demonstrations of what can be done.
InnovatingCreatingThinking's curator insight, March 6, 2013 11:33 AM

Students in successful classrooms not only understand what they are learning, but why they are learning it and how it connects to the world beyond the classroom. Whether it is designing all the components to make a house in a high school maths/technology class or reading a home reader in primary school, students are able to connect with the what, how and why  of learning.

20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture | TeachThought

20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture | TeachThought | STEM EDTech | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"It’s an age-old saying, “Give a man a fish, and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime.”

 

"What separates good teachers from the excellent ones? The excellent ones are handing out fishing poles; creating a culture in the classroom of independence and self-reliance. These students don’t just recite facts or regurgitate information- they have learned how to learn. They know that if the answer isn’t in front of them, they have the tools to do the investigation and research.

 

"So how do you cultivate a culture of “I can…” in your classroom?"

I have a confession to make. It’s a shameful, dark secret that I fear may be common to many adults around the world. And, when I was teaching, it was certainly one that I saw shared by many students I came into contact with.

What can you do on a Chromebook? Pretty much everything. | Tech Learning ~ by David Andrade | STEM EDTech | Scoop.it

"Chromebooks are getting more and more popular in education, the workplace and at home. They are very useful and capable, but I still hear, "but they are only a web browser, they can't do much", etc. when in reality, they can do pretty much everything [needed in everyday situations]. UPDATE: They also work offline, contrary to popular belief."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Andrade is a savvy participant/observer in edtech. Lots of great aids posted here.

In an attempt to give students more opportunities to interact with me I've created an iPad app that allows student response to instructor questions, note-taking, student questions to the instructor and even allows students to indicate when they're confused. All is stored to the cloud an can be accessed via web apps as well.

Attended a great Blended Learning Conference in Alban, NY this past week.  Blended learning turns traditional teaching on it's head.  You have to develop a plan that fits for your district or workplace environment though.
