Hele mooie en makkelijke manier om een quiz te maken gebaseerd op een afbeelding waarin labels worden gekoppeld.
NicolevdWiel's curator insight, November 29, 2013 4:17 AM

Leuke manier om een quiz te maken, maar is duidelijk nog een beta-versie. Na het fout beantwoorden van een vraag is een volgende vraag niet meer te beantwoorden. Lay-out etc. is nog niet echt mooi, nog even afwachten.

Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished

Webinars Curation: Find, Rate and Organize The Best Online Events and Lessons with Hublished | technological tools for educators | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Hublished has announced a new web service, launching privately this fall, that allows "publishers" to host, upload and deliver live webinars, and for "peers" to find, curate, organize and save the most interesting ones into their own collections / hubs.

For the first time ever, educated consumers and professionals can discover and share live, recent, and upcoming content from brands and experts.

 

"Hublished solves two problems, for the two different types of users that will be on the site.

 

For experts and brands, whom we call Publishers, Hublished is a central location they can promote upcoming webinars and upload recent ones, in order to reach new consumers and generate leads. For professionals and industry enthusiasts, whom we call Peers, Hublished provides a discovery and curation platform that helps them separate the hacks from the experts when it comes to cutting-edge information and continuing education."

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it | technological tools for educators | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I received an invitation some hours ago to join into closed beta test of Ping.it (formerly StormDriver).

It is a social content discovery platform that allows people to ping where they are in the Web right now, locate others in real time, and join them on any page.

 

From About Page:

"Ping.it offers a new way to discover interesting content in a social setting. Instead of leaving updates on social networks, just like notes on a fridge, simply share the experience of discovering content in real time, together. Don’t wait for people to tell you what they’re doing. Instead, take a look at Ping.it and join them on the spot!

 

With Ping.it you can see what pages others are visiting right now. You can also get pinged about the good stuff they find or ping your own discoveries.

 

Ping.it is all about the real-time aspect of the Web. Being aware of where your friends are online is one thing. Another is that you can instantly know what’s hot. In Ping.it you can see how many other users are interacting with a page, and if things get interesting you can get notified and join in the fun!

 

Every ping can be send to a specific topic – and all the people who follow it. This way you will immediately know if a new interesting page was pinged to any topic you follow. You can create your own topics, invite contributors, and together create useful scrapbooks of content. All topics have their own unique URL’s, so that you can share your best collaborations with the outside world.

 

We use cloud-enhanced browsing in order to let you enjoy your favorite content from within Ping.it. Instead of searching for stuff outside and then reporting on your findings through social networks..."

 These web tools are ideal for creating avatars. There is also the possibility of creating a cartoon out of one's own pictures.

Creating a cartoon out of your real picture is a good way to disguise your real identity while in the same time preserving your own feel and touch.  The web tools below  are really helpful for cartonizing your pictures.

Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, September 5, 2012 12:29 AM
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between. A great way to begin learning about Digital Storytelling is by watching the following video introduction to Digital Storytelling.
According to Bernard Robin, at the University of Houston, she states in her Power Point presentation that the educational uses of digital storytelling are immeasurable. She clearly shows that if this type of technology is used appropriately by classroom teachers its results will be effective in helping students with research skills, writing skills, organizational skills, technology skills, presentational skills, interviewing skills, interpersonal skills, problem-solving skills, and assessment skills. She also mentions that students will learn information from digital storytelling that will influence and improve their digital, global, technology, visual, and information literacy skills. The questions that arise around the practicality of using such technology have lead others to write about how digital storytelling can be integrated into the classroom to allow students to construct their own learning. In an article in Library Media Connection (2003) titled, What’s Your Digital Story? the authors explain that when we integrate digital storytelling into classroom projects we also enable students to construct their own stories. This pursuit requires students to become active participants instead of passive viewers. They further state that when students structure in narrative stories they are more likely to remember this information and commit it to memory as it is believed that our brains are wired in narrative stories and the construction of these stories help us to better cope with conflict and give us the ability to put incongruity into neat little packages we call stories. There is also reason to believe that by producing digital stories students become more critical when viewing media such as television, computers, and video games. They can now see how easy it can be to manipulate images and text to produce information that is less than truthful.
According to (Barrett, 2006) she sees digital storytelling as a means of creating a reflective portfolio that ties into a new type of learning environment whereas the instruction is student centered with multi-sensory stimulation. As students work collaboratively exchanging information in an active mode with real opportunity they develop and use critical thinking skills. The new learning environment has application because it is authentic and the learning is not isolated or out of context. She states that students will be able to:

• Communicate using a variety of media and formats
• Access and exchange information in a variety of ways
• Compile, organize, analyze, and synthesize information
• Draw conclusions and make generalizations based on information gathered
• Know content and be able to locate additional information as needed
• Become self-directed learners
• Collaborate and cooperate in team efforts
• Interact with others in ethical and appropriate ways

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia | technological tools for educators | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Knowmia is new San Francisco-based startup that offers a video lesson platform for teachers and students.

Knowmia are building the largest marketplace for short-form video educational content and the tools for teachers to create and publish outstanding content.

 

 

From "About Us" on official website:

"Knowmia is a destination for learning that features short video lessons from great teachers everywhere. We help you to find what you need to succeed in school in a personal, affordable, and time-efficient way. By bringing together a wide range of video lessons and making it easy to find what you need, we help you with challenging topics, prepare you for an upcoming test or new course, and find the right teacher for your style of learning..."

 

From review article on GigaOM:

"At launch, the site includes about 7,000 videos in a broad range of subject areas, from geometry and algebra to chemistry and physics to world history and American literature. The videos, which are about one to ten minutes long, have been mostly culled from YouTube and Vimeo and then reviewed by teachers working with Knowmia to provide editorial notes, create relevant quizzes and tag content according to subject, topic and skill.

 

Going forward, Knowmia will encourage teachers, as well as public and nonprofit groups, to add more videos. As the site grows, the plan is that the initial videos and tags will provide the foundation for additional notes and teacher-provided tags, which help teachers and students discover content.

 

The idea is that if students (mostly high school, for now) need extra help in a certain subject, say algebra, they can just go to the site, search for “quadratic equation” and instantly choose from a handful of short videos on the topic.

 

Knowmia’s focus on providing curation and structure, as well as sophisticated tools for teachers, will help distinguish it from other online platforms...."
