An homage to the Commodore 64's SID sounds running inside your WebKit browser
John Dalziel's insight:

For some practitioners, especially if they’re a child of the 80′s,WebSID will definitely bring back some memories.
The WebSID is a digital recreation of the iconic SID sound chip, as used in the Commodore 64.
It’s very simple and easy to use, with a straightforward interface, and can be played using a computer keyboard.
The on-screen keyboard also responds to touch if users are accessing it on a smartphone or tablet or iPad.
WebSID also comes with a built-in delay effect for more sound design possibilities.
WebSID is also available on the Chrome Web Store so practitioners, and/or their learners, can play the synth offline.
Note: It's been built using the WebAudio API, so only works in browsers that support HTML5 audio.

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!
