projeqt - dynamic presentations for a real-time world

projeqt - dynamic presentations for a real-time world | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

From the website

"With Projeqt, your presentations never remain static. Pull in live tweets or blog feeds, insert an interactive map, add audio notes or stream videos. Let your presentations be as dynamic as you are."

 

Projeqt is an alternative to PowerPoint, Keynote, and Prezi. I like it better than all 3 because it lives on the web and is device agnostic. Basically, it's a cool way to tell digital stories that overcomes some of the linear limitations of PP and KN, while not making viewers dizzy like Prezi can. Built in HTML5, so it's future friendly.

 

It's simple to use and can integrate all types of media easily, while incorporating layering of presentations (stacks) and the ability to pull in live feeds including live tweets or blog posts.

 

Honored as one of the the best Web Services and Applications by the 2011 Webbys  and as an Interactive Awards Finalist at SXSW 2012. Do check it out. -JL

Hojoki - make all your cloud apps work together - very cool & free
***

Hojoki is a new service I just learned about from the Hojoki team. It's a very cool idea - it takes all of your online productivity apps and turns them into a newsfeed and collaborative space to work on projects.

I played with it a little today and will be using it more this week. It looks like something that could be very useful for education.

It' is in Beta now and free and there will always be a free plan available.

Here's more information and a video about it on Youtube

***

Teachers utilizing the cloud: Hojoki is your collaborative newsfeed for Google Docs, Calendar, Dropbox, Evernote and more

Hojoki’s basic idea is very simple: they offer one newsfeed for productivity apps. It connects to apps like Google Documents, Evernote, Dropbox, Mendeley and Google Calendar, building you a newsfeed and a collaborative space for your work.

Anytime an activity in any of your connected apps occurs, Hojoki informs you. You can share your activities with others in workspaces, where you can discuss events and manage whatever projects you’re working on. You never miss important changes from co-workers and have all your content in one place.

Digital textbooks get a boost with new offerings | eSchool News | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Apple recently made a splash when it unveiled its iBookstore, featuring digital textbooks for high school math and science education from McGraw-Hill and others. Now, Discovery Education has given digital textbooks another jolt with the release of its own high school science offering—and a middle school social studies product as well.

 

"Discovery Education’s new “Techbooks” expand on an instructional delivery model that Discovery launched for K-8 science in 2010. Much more than just digitized versions of static textbooks, the Techbooks include videos, embedded assessments, and other interactive features that leverage the power of the internet, the company says."

The 21st Century Principal: 6 Must-Have Mobile Device Apps for the School Administrator

The 21st Century Principal: 6 Must-Have Mobile Device Apps for the School Administrator | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

By J. Robinson

 

Ask yourself what makes an app on a mobile device useful, and the answer is that the most useful apps have these four characteristics:

*The app is available for and syncs across multiple devices. This means users can use the app on their iPad, Android phone, or even their Kindle Fire. Because of this feature, data created or stored by the app is available on any one of the devices used.

*The app is easy to use. This rule applies to any software, but most especially to mobile apps. It must have an easy to use interface and design. If it is too complicated, the difficulty of use outweighs any positive features the app might have.

*The app facilitates the easy sharing of data stored or generated. Being able to share using app has rapidly become an expectation, especially with mobile device apps. The ability to Tweet out a note from your note taking app or to email someone found links in your social bookmark app makes the app useful for 21st century learners. Any app that is about collecting needs to be able to share out what is collected.

*The app is free or relatively inexpensive. People aren't willing to spend a great deal for apps they use,especially if there are functional free alternatives, which there often is. At the most, the apps need to be inexpensive as well if they are to be most useful for the money.

elearn Magazine: Gamification: Using Game Mechanics to Enhance eLearning | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Maybe you've heard of the term "gamification," and perhaps you're wondering what it is and how it can be applied to eLearning. In short, gamification is the use of gameplay mechanics for non-game applications. Rather, game mechanics are the construct of rules that encourage users to explore and learn the properties of their possibility space through the use of feedback mechanisms.
