Mail Markup: Inline annotations and markup in Gmail, Email markup, Email annotations | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Mail Markup in Gmail is a Chrome extension which enables practitioners to preview an attachment from their learners without downloading it.
They can...
   - annotate the attachment,
   - add comments,
   - add those comments directly into the email, and
   - then send it back.
Potentially, a huge time saver.

Barc | Easily Add Real-time Posting, Commenting, and Community to your Webpage for Free | technologies | Scoop.it
Chat on any webpage or wifi network with Barc!
John Dalziel's insight:

Stakeholder voice (Learners, Employers, Administrators etc.,) is important, especially if learning providers want to provide more relevant content, to meet the needs of their website visitors.
They must gather and read comments they leave on the website. In order to do this, they must first have comments incorporated into their site.
Barc is a free to use tool that helps website owners; it helps them incorporate a new style of commenting on their website.
Barc offers learning providers an option of a chat-like commenting widget.
By selecting different options the widget is...
- started either opened or closed, and based on options
- placed on the bottom right corner of the site or
- placed on the right or left sides of the website.
Users can customise colours, and other properties of the commenting widget.
When all of the options are set, an embeddable code is generated to be used on the website for free.
Note: Currently Barc supports Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, Drupal, and more.
The Barc tool will soon begin offering premium plans in addition to its free ones.
I've added Barc to my eMagazine page...

sketchlot - Create a sketch, share it with learners

sketchlot - Create a sketch, share it with learners | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Practitioners create a "Teacher's Account" which includes a unique class code. They then add learners to their network.
NOTE: Learners log in using the class code created and their password (which practitioners can view, set and change).
For the next part, I found using a graphics tablet a big plus, practitioners create sketches that, when saved, can be...
- shared with any member of their class; using the share feature OR
- embedded in a class website,
- pinned to pinterest or
- tweeted.
Practitioners can create maths questions, science diagrams or even text for learners to view and then create their reply/answer by producing their own sketch and sharing it with their practitioner (Teacher).
A BIG PLUS: sketchlot is designed to work on all current tablets, phones and computers.
Practitioners can re-share work to others, or post it for others to view. Practitioners can also create and share a sketch on their interative whiteboard in front of their class!

Understoodit - Measure Students' Understanding in Real-Time

Understoodit - Measure Students' Understanding in Real-Time | technologies | Scoop.it

Understoodit is...

- a new web app;

- a tool for quickly getting anonymous feedback from learners.

 

The option to see the timing of when learners vote for "confused" or "understand" can be a great way to quickly determine which topics or what content to practitioners need to repeat.

 

Practitioners, just...

- open their account (it's still in beta by invitation only)

- open the simple poll of "understand" or "confused."

 

Learners...

- vote using any internet-connected device.

- vote whenever practitioners have the poll open.

- can vote multiple times; e.g. if they are confused at the beginning of class, but understand ten minutes later they can change their votes.

Kaizena · Give Great Feedback · Voice Comments for Google Drive

Kaizena · Give Great Feedback · Voice Comments for Google Drive | technologies | Scoop.it
Kaizena is the best place to help students improve their work. Import from Google Drive, add voice comments and attach mini-lessons.
John Dalziel's insight:

Kaizena is a good tool for providing audio feedback to learners.
To use Kaizena practitioners will have to authorize it to access their Google Account.
Having done that, practitioners can then...
  - open any document,
  - highlight a selection of text, and
  - record their comments for learners to listen to.
Giving feedback to learners is, for many, faster with Kaizena than typing, and far faster than a red pen.
Every feature is designed to save practitioners time.
For learners, Voice Comments make the feedback personal.
Last, but equally important, practitioners can address common problems with reusable mini-lessons. By adding a link once, practitioners can quickly reuse it every time they encounter that problem again.
Practitioners get to stop repeating themself, and their learners get clear next steps to improve.
(Note: Kai·zen - is a Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement)
When you visit the website, scroll down the page to find out more.
