bContext - present on iPad | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

bContext is an app that actively transforms the way ideas are shared by enlivening static documents with audio, writing, and drawing capabilities.

The app makes it easy for anyone (i.e. designers, architects, consultants, teachers, bloggers, journalists etc.) to add visual and verbal elements to transform complex ideas into engaging communications.

Great app for creating and presenting content using iPad. The app is free to download and use.

Get the app here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bcontext/id515971580?mt=8

Jim Lerman's curator insight, February 11, 2013 8:02 PM

I spent a lot of time checking this app out. It seems to be a really excellent way to create presentations on an iPad and deliver them using a variety of methods -- including screencasting directly from the iPad to any type of device (TV, computer, phone, or other iPads).The demos show uses in dealthcare, education, business, and PR/advertsing. The pricing model is a bit steep for schools, but maybe with enough pressure they will modify that. Looks like an app that offers a great deal of functionality. Do give it a try.

Comment please.

Transformative or just flashy educational tools? | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

There are a couple tools out now that I see bantered around in educational circles that I just hate! And there are some pretty awesome tools out there that are being used in rather old and traditional ways, and I don’t hate the tool, but I hate the use of them.

OneLook Reverse Dictionary

OneLook Reverse Dictionary | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get students thinking about how they explain what words mean. Unlike most dictionaries which gives you the meaning of a ord, this one will give you the word as long as you can give the correct maning. This is a great skill to develop as a language learner.

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

Pinterest has taken off in the past few months. According to a Shareholic study, it exceeds reddit, Google+, Linkedin, and YouTube as a referral source. It may seem as though everyone you know is Pinning something to the online bulletin boards to share their favorite articles, collections, and items available online.

 

This is a great social networking tool that you can use for educational purposes, whether you are a teacher or a student.

 

This tool can make it possible to create boards for specific projects and to collect and share lesson resources.

 

Be sure to see the education page!

Students often overshare personal information through social media sites. Hackers can use that to impersonate banks and other legitimate institutions to gain login information and personal details. Limit using specifics on any social media sites. Try not to ever use your full address, social security number or date of birth.

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning

How A Classroom Of iPads Changed My Approach To Learning | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

By recognizing that our prior experience with ICT had created paradigms that constrained our thinking, we are starting to glimpse new learning opportunities made possible by one-to-one integration of iPads. Rather than viewing iPads as substitutes for other technologies (including paper), it is our view that iPads can be used as tools and environments for learning that allow for deeper and more diverse engagements. Our journey with iPads in learning continues.

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | Technology for Business English Teaching | Scoop.it

In the most ideal class settings, mobile devices disappear into the background, like markers and whiteboards, pencil and paper – not because they’re not being used, but because they’re simply tools, a means to an end. The “end” can be any number of things: to gauge student understanding of a concept, to capture notes and ideas to be used and studied later, to calculate, to communicate, to express ideas.
