Newly launched, Slidebean seems to be trying to do what haiku deck does. Login is with Facebook, not my favorite way of doing things, but there are some nice effects here and it produces clean slide shows.

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?

A cool little tool that easily makes a picture using your quote (either your own or someone else's). There are background templates (though not very many) to choose from. You only have to type the quote, click on Create and...voilà, you have an image which you can insert in your presentation to add a nice touch.

Above you can see an example made by me.

How to block calls and text messages on iPhone using iOS 7

How to block calls and text messages on iPhone using iOS 7 | Technology | Scoop.it

We all know how annoying repeated calls can be. It’s the same with text messages. iOS 7 includes a great feature for automatically blocking phone calls and text messages from any contacts stored on your device. It’s easy to set up and totally configurable, so if that pesky friend decides they’ve had enough of calling you, it’s possible to unblock them at a future date.

Looks like a good idea. Especially since you become the owner of the work and it is not stored on a third party site...

Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 8:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.
