Mural.ly

Mural.ly | Teaching with Web Tools | Scoop.it

What Mural.ly offers is a new way to collect and share ideas that gets away from the traditional, page-based way of looking at things. That means that, like with Prezi, users get a scrollable space which can grow both horizontally and vertically according to needs, instead of being limited by traditional paper dimensions that have been standard for years, first with physical notebooks and then with the earliest digital tools that replaced them. Users can grab websites, photos, audio and other media and work arrange them on a virtual canvas, as well as invite others to work together at the same time in the same space. Finally, Mural.ly is also designed to be at home on touch devices, so the web product is ready and optimized for touch input and manipulation via devices like the iPad.

Smaragda Papadopoulou's curator insight, February 21, 2013 2:59 AM

With NetClick, you can make your existing slide content interactive. There is no need to re-author slides or learn a new system for making presentations. Get instant, visual feedback on what part of a slide is confusing. Students can indicate exactly what part of diagrams, pictures or text they want to discuss — in an instant! Students can express their interests and doubts without being put on the spot. Being shy or worrying about peers' reactions won't prevent anyone from participating.

Free Technology for Teachers: 19 Educational Games About U.S. Civics

Free Technology for Teachers: 19 Educational Games About U.S. Civics | Teaching with Web Tools | Scoop.it

"iCivics is an excellent source of educational games that offer lessons in civics. Since its launch a few years ago, iCivics has steadily grown to the point that it now contains nineteen educational games for students. All of the games require students to take on a decision making role. To succeed in the games students have to apply their understanding of the rules and functions local, state, or Federal government. Some games require an understanding of the U.S. court system and or the Constitution."

An Overview of iOS 8′s New Accessibility Features - MacStories

An Overview of iOS 8′s New Accessibility Features - MacStories | Teaching with Web Tools | Scoop.it

Since this year’s WWDC keynote ended, the focus of any analysis on iOS 8 has been its features — things like Continuity, Extensions, and iCloud Drive. This is, of course, expected: iOS is the operating system that drives Apple’s most important (and most profitable) products, so it’s natural that the limelight be shone on the new features for the mass market.

 

As I’ve written, however, the Accessibility features that Apple includes in iOS are nonetheless just as important and innovative as the A-list features that Craig Federighi demoed on stage at Moscone. Indeed, Apple is to be lauded for their year-over-year commitment to improving iOS’s Accessibility feature set, and they continue that trend with iOS 8.

 

Here, I run down what’s new in Accessibility in iOS 8, and explain briefly how each feature works.

Paula Jamieson's curator insight, August 5, 2014 4:42 PM

I see huge value in the Thinglink tool (both App and Web), especially if you are a Google school and create or store digital archives online (as all you need is a URL to link too). 

 

Our Year 4 to 6 teachers have created a Thinglink (placed on their clasblog) using their class photo and linked each one of the students blogs to it - simple, effective and visually capturing (Whanau love being able to view their blogs easily).

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses | Teaching with Web Tools | Scoop.it

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

Popplet is a tool that allows users to visualize ideas. Teachers and students can create graphic organizers, timelines, and many other forms of visual organization. Popplet's strength as a collaborative brainstorming tool, however, should not lead teachers to overlook its usefulness as an effective presentation tool.

"While gathering resources to share with campus teachers, I stumbled upon the Photo Mapo app and quickly added it to my list of tools for summer archival. The intent was to provide a repository of tools and applications that educators could utilize in the midst of their staycations and vacations that could also be extended to the classroom. Photo Mapo is a FREE app that does just that. "

Slingshot - Share Your iOS/MAC Screen with Anyone Around the World! - teachingwithipad.org | Teaching with Web Tools | Scoop.it

"From the makers of the extremely popular Reflector (also featured onteachingwithipad.org) comes an exciting new application called Slingshot. If used to its full potential, Slingshot can bring together both educators and their students to collaborate and make presentations in a whole new way.

 

AirPlay mirroring has been an excellent feature in the classroom to promote wireless mobility while you circulate among your students. The features of Slingshot takes this capability one step further. Now, anyone who joins a session that you host will be able to see your screen as you teach (providing that they have a compatible device). The possibilities of this are plenty."
