TodaysMeet - Give everyone a voice

TodaysMeet - Give everyone a voice | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

TodaysMeet is intended to be a backchannel chat, but there’s much more users can do with it.
Users can create the same TodaysMeet room (and corresponding URL) for an entire year.
Their learners can bookmark it and can be there in one click.
If users need their learners to visit a site quickly, they just add the link to their TodaysMeet room and their learners can access it quickly. It's worth checking out "20 ways to use TodaysMeet in your Learning Environment (classroom) at http://ditchthattextbook.com/2014/01/30/20-useful-ways-to-use-todaysmeet-in-schools/

eduClipper

Educlipper
John Dalziel's insight:

eduClipper is a social web tool that was born from a need to address several issues that practitioners and learners are facing today, both in and out of the learning environment.

Because eduClipper was designed by an educator, Adam Bellow, an educational technologist who spent six years as a classroom practitioner before becoming a technology training specialist and then technology director, the tool has many unique education features that support practitioners, promoting practitioner effectiveness and professional learning.

eduClipper is a great tool for practitioners and learners to explore, share, and contribute information.

The site makes it safe and secure for learning to be enhanced by social tools and for practitioners and learners to build and be part of a global social learning network where what they create and share has social value and matters.

John Dalziel's insight:

Padlet is like a digital cork board. Anyone who accesses the Padlet wall you create can add virtual sticky notes to it with...
► text,
► images or
► URLs (unless you change the privacy settings).
Create a Padlet wall and add URLs to it, or your students/learners can add URLs themselves.
There’s a lot more you can do with Padlet; take a look at http://ditchthattextbook.com/2014/11/03/20-useful-ways-to-use-padlet-in-class-now/
