This is How Teachers Use Pinterest ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

This is How Teachers Use Pinterest ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Teaching and Learning English through Technology | Scoop.it

"It is really amazing the popularity Pinterest gained in this very short period since its official launch. Compared to some other social media outlets, Pinterest has made a real and major breakthrough . It has radically transformed the notion of bookmarking by making it visually engaging. This ' visual ingredient ' is what matters to today's netizens ( citizens of the net ). People are more attracted to visual cues than text cues and this is normal given the way the brain reads, processes, and interprets the incoming signals. Images take less time and less efforts to be internally processed."

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!
