Presentation Apps: A New Take on an Old Task - Lindsey Fuller | Reading Today Online

Presentation Apps: A New Take on an Old Task - Lindsey Fuller | Reading Today Online | Technology | Scoop.it

"For my recent Engage post, I asked my students to review apps we had used to create presentations in our classroom. The apps included a variety of tools for making traditional slide show displays. But the beauty of the devices we are using in our classroom is that we can go so much further, and break past those conventional boundaries.

With that in mind, I would like to share some of the apps my students utilized in creating presentations that were of the less traditional variety. "

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

The future is not about a single device or set of devices. According to this author,


"The future is about access, anywhere learning and collaboration, both locally and globally. Teaching and learning is going to be social. Schoolsof the future could have a traditional cohort of students, as well as online only students who live across the country or even the world. Things are already starting to move this way with the emergence of massive open online courses (MOOCs)."
