Get MomentCam - Personalized Cartoons and Stickers on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.
John Dalziel's insight:

If you, or your learners, fancy something different, then why not make a caricature selfie?
Make a funny image of yourself, based on a photo you take with the MomentCam app, or one that you choose from your photographs.
The resulting images are all GIF images so prepare to see some of the resulting images dancing around.
It’s worth a few smiles at least.

Time-Lapse is a photograph technique that gives an accelerated view of slowly changing events.
John Dalziel's insight:

This was flagged up by my son Ben, Time Lapse is a photograph technique that gives an accelerated view of slowly changing events
Events such as movement of clouds, the rising and setting of the sun, a field trip with your peers, even individual activities or anything else that you can imagine. You will see them in a new way and otherwise undetectable patterns will emerge.

Scan Documents On Your Phone With CamScanner [Android & iPhone]

Scan Documents On Your Phone With CamScanner [Android & iPhone] | technologies | Scoop.it
When it comes to smartphones, many of us want to be able to use them to do all manner of useful home office tasks just to make our lives easier. So it's a phone, a camera, a handy email client, social networking centre and all the rest.

 

CamScanner is an application, available on Android, iPhone, Windows Mobile and Blackberry, designed to make high quality document scanning easy for users using their smartphone.

 

CamScanner is quite sophisticated, it is easy to scan multiple pages into one document and/or to auto-crop an image to exactly what a user wants to keep/share/save.

 

I've added the free version to my work iPhone to test the ad-supported, limited version; give it a go and see what you think!

 

I would think it is an ideal application for WBL Assessors.

Thanks for that, at first I thought why not just use the phone camera to capture a document, but this does open more avenues for assessment, will download, spread the word and and let you know

Thanks for the feedback Coling; Like many tools it isn't the tool, it's the way it is used.

Camera Plus Takes Your iPhoneography A Step Further

Camera Plus Takes Your iPhoneography A Step Further | technologies | Scoop.it

The App Store is saturated with camera apps, so why would you need another one? Despite the many, many photo and filter apps out there, Camera Plus still manages to bring a few fresh features to the table.

John Dalziel's insight:

Camera Plus Takes Your iPhoneography A Step Further.
Camera Plus is different, and some of those differences take the form of genuinely useful features – one of the most notable is the way in which users focus their shots.
Camera Plus also uses a sliding dial labelled Lumy that allows users to alter the exposure value to let in more or less light, allowing them to fine-tune a shot.
And that is just some of the things users can do!

ShoutOmatic: Audible Shout-Outs: Stop Typing, Start Shouting!

ShoutOmatic: Audible Shout-Outs: Stop Typing, Start Shouting! | technologies | Scoop.it

The ShoutOmatic platform lets Practitioners, Learners and other Stakeholders record short messages ("shouts") straight from their desktops and smartphones, and have them instantly delivered to others. These short "shouts" can be used in so many different ways, within the learning environment,in a more personalised way than faceless emails, texts, tweets etc.

"Shouts" are particularly suitable for educational use since they all come with their very own QR codes; providing alternative communication channels.

Many Learning providers use QR Codes for Educational Treasure Hunts, getting their learners, using their mobile devices, to learn. How about an induction tour?
