Are you thinking of implementing e-Portfolios in your classroom? Then this post will help you get quickly a deeper understanding of the bigger picture on using e-Portfolios. The post explores the why, the how, and whats of e-Portfolios and provides many helpful resources to get you started.

Kimberly House's curator insight, August 11, 1:57 PM

Very thorough guide to using, assessing and making ePortfolios happen. Plenty of tips and suggestions for which apps to use and how to digitise work. Nicely presented and easy to follow. Also does a good job talking about the 'why' of ePortfolios. This is the part I find some of my teachers struggle with.

Edmodo Training Videos by Russell Stanndard | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Edmodo is free and offers you a simple virtual learning environment where your students can share ideas and collaborate together. It has a very similar interface to Facebook and so your students will pick it up easily. What's more, students to do need provide their emails. It is really easy to create a group and then invite your students to join the group. You can create separate groups for each class you teach. What is more amazing is that it is free. You can create quizzes, polls, add up important dates to the calendar, run discussions and share links, videos, articles etc.

This is  a FREE LMS and does not require students to provide an email address.  You are able to upload documents, videos, MP3s, pictures and links to websites.  Edmodo is user friendly and a great way to introduce students to an online learning environment.

The Best iPad Apps to Use with SAMR Model ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

"SAMR model is a conceptual framework developed by  Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help you better integrate technology in your instruction. SAMR stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition. Each of these four levels correspond with a set of tech-based activities and learning tasks. The strength of SAMR model is that it provides teachers with a robust method to gauge and assess the efficacy of the technology they and their students use in class.

Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and your audience just gets bored or annoyed--which is about the worst possible outcome when presenting.
