7 Sticky Notes - Fun, interactive, powerful and cool Sticky Notes for your Desktop!

7 Sticky Notes - Fun, interactive, powerful and cool Sticky Notes for your Desktop! | technologies | Scoop.it
7 Sticky Notes is a 100% free desktop notes software that creates Sticky Notes directly on your Desktop! It has a great good-looking realistic sticky note appearance with great features, and it is at the same time simple to use, reliable, and light!
John Dalziel's insight:

Post-its on the desktop or Start Screen can be extremely helpful for remembering small but important amounts of information.
Many practitioners and/or learners will prefer to stop cluttering up their desk and go digital.
7 Sticky Notes is an ideal option, for those either running Windows 7 still, or if they’re on Windows 8 but prefer the desktop over the Start Screen.
7 Sticky Notes offers plenty of options for formatting notes and the text within them.
After the installation...
   -  an icon appears in the notification tray (the area in the bottom right corner of your desktop).
   -  Right-clicking the icon provides the option to open a new note.
When a new note is opened, the Note Configuration Window will appear beside it allowing users to change...
   -  the colour of the note,
   -  the font,
   -  font size,
   -  font colour
...and more.
There’s also an option to set alarms.

Chalkup: Social Learning Platform, Simple Learning Management. | technologies | Scoop.it
Chalkup is a new learning, communication, and social studying platform for the modern class. Use Chalkup for class discussions, assignments, course materials, messages, and flashcards.
John Dalziel's insight:

Chalkup is an on-line service that allows practitioners to create classes to which they can distribute announcements and assignments in a message board style.
Their learners can sign-in to...
   - see what has been posted,
   - reply to posts, and
   - submit assignments.
Chalkup allows practitioners to distribute Google Drive files to their learners and they, in turn, can submit Google Drive files to practitioners.
Practitioners can simply select a file from their Google Drive account and share it through Chalkup.
When learners submit assignments in Chalkup, practitioners can comment and draw on their Google Documents as well as give them a numeric grade for their assignments.

gClassFolders v2

gClassFolders v2 | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

gClassFolders is a script that will create folders for practitioners.
This can be for as many course sections as they need. The concept behind it is...
- learners have a "dropbox" folder in their Google Drive accounts that their practitioner has shared with them.
- to submit work learners drag files into that "dropbox" folder.
- From there gClassFolders sorts their submissions to the correct folder for each learner.

John Dalziel's insight:

Within education there are a huge range of teams that exist; sizes varying considerably.

It's important to keep these teams focused and at times,it's important to get them refocused.

This post, via a graphic by Mia MacMeekin, provides a range of ways this could be achieved.

Especially when considering stratergies to refocus their teams.
