Task 2: Create Your Own Flickr Page

Having your own Flickr account with a collection of images that you can use for teaching can be really useful. Flickr is a great place to store, share and find useful images and there are many other sites and web 2.0 type tools that take images from flickr and use them in applications, so if you have your own Flickr account you can make sure you use your own images when working with students.

Mix Images and Animation on Your Mobile

Mix Images and Animation on Your Mobile | Education and Technology | Scoop.it

You can then either use text to speech to write a script for the character, or you can record your own voice and the app will lip-synch you text to the character. This is very quick and easy to do. Here's how.

This exciting project is attracting the support it deserves - who else wants to join this publishing revolution and, in particular, support those who work selflessly for the public good in education?

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Why do so many Moodle courses suck?

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: Why do so many Moodle courses suck? | Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Given the state of many of these courses, it’s no wonder that drop out rates for online learning are so high. And of course Moodle isn’t the only culprit. Many of the other commercially available LMS (learning management systems) and VLE (virtual learning environment) platforms aren’t doing any better.
