Oskar Almazan's curator insight, October 23, 8:46 AM
Quest lets you make interactive story games. Text adventure games like Zork and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Gamebooks like the Choose Your Own Adventure and Fighting Fantasy books. You don't need to know how to program. All you need is a story to tell. Your game can be played anywhere. In a web browser, downloaded to a PC, or turned into an app.
 
Ricard Garcia's curator insight, Today, 4:46 AM
Interesting tool to foster creativity in storytelling and narrative... a bit complex but rewarding if teachers devote some time to learn the tool.

Cómo descargar vídeos de Twitter

Cómo descargar vídeos de Twitter | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
Hace justo un año os enseñamos por aquí a descargar vídeos de YouTube o incluso sólo el audio de esos vídeos. En realidad, era una operación de lo más sencilla gracias a la amplia variedad de páginas web que ofrecen ese servicio a poco más de un click. Pues bien, doce meses después recuperamos ese tema, pero para descubrir cómo se pueden descargar los vídeos que nos encontramos en Twitter. Y el procedimiento es tan elemental como para YouTube porque, oh sorpresa, hay varias webs que facilitan sobremanera ese trabajo. ¿Lo vemos?

Using Infographic Creation Tools in the Classroom

Using Infographic Creation Tools in the Classroom | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it
The next time you need to evaluate what students have learned about a subject, ask them to create an infographic.  When students take the information they have learned and compile it into a visual format, it demonstrates mastery of the content. Infographics stimulate visual learning.  Encouraging students to create and share their infographics in the classroom takes their learning to the next level. Teachers need to provide students with infographic creation tools that provide students with a way to create infographics easily, to allow them to focus on the content rather than mastering a new technology. When evaluating infographic tools …
