There is an emerging learning trend towards visual stimulus as a result of growing up with videos, TV, and technology from barbie laptops to Ipads.  This is a great resource for tutors to reach this audience while using few words.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 1, 2013 3:13 AM


For those who are looking for sound clips for their presentations or video soundtrack, FindSounds is an excellent web resource. This audio search tool is available both as a free web-based audio search engine as well as a commercial downloadable Windows software that specializes in finding, creating, editing and organizing sound clips.


The web-based version, can search any type of audio file on the web and it provides also a categorized repository of sounds that makes it easy to find some common sound types: http://www.findsounds.com/types.html


The downloadable software version, FindSoundPalette, can search for audio files by name, description, category, genre, source, copyright, format, size, number of channels, resolution, sample rate, duration, key, and tempo.It is also possible to search "by sound", a feature which allows you to automatically find similar sounds on the Web and in your sound collection.


You can also record your own sounds with the built-in audio recorder and edit sounds using the built-in audio editor. Useful is also the colorful Comparisonics waveform display which helps you "see" visually what you are editing.


N.B.: FindSounds is a long-time provider of this sound search technology which has been available online since the year 2000.

The one place to organize, present and share knowledge

John Dalziel's curator insight, January 5, 2013 2:33 PM

Edcanvas is a website that allows practitioners to collate online resources onto a single page for their learners to access.

These canvases can be shared with learners...

- via a URL link or

- by embedding into a blog/VLE/other webpresences.
A canvas creation is quite straight forward.

Down one side of the page is a search column that lets users search YouTube and Flickr as well as add resources from Google Drive and Dropbox and upload directly.

Those resources can then be dragged onto the canvas.
It’s another way of providing learner access to a number of different resources via a one stop shop, rather than having to share lots of different URL’s.
Learners could also use Edcanvas to collate their own canvases as they do research on given topics.

Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING

Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"A new study conducted by TRU provides a body of research which supports the idea that students use cell phones to learn, and also that schools are not acknowledging or supporting them fully, yet... Rather than banning, the study highlights the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 17, 2013 2:54 PM

The study was a survey of 1000 students in Grades 6 - 8 and came out with some surprising data. Key findings include:

* More than one out of three middle school students report they are using smartphones (39%) and tablets (31%) to do homework.

* More than 1 in 4 students (26 %) are using smartphones for their homework, weekly or more.

* Hispanic and African American middle school students are using the smartphones for homework more than Caucasian students. Nearly one half of all Hispanic middle school students (49%) report using smartphones for homework. Smartphone use for homework also crosses income levels with nearly one in three (29%) of students from the lowest income households reporting smartphone usage to do their homework assignments. (Note - 25% of students surveyed were from households of $25,000 or less income.)

The report has additional key findings as well as areas of significan opportunity, statistics on students interest in STEM, mobile device usage, benefits of mobile devices in the classroom, and the opportunity to increase mobile device usage in the classroom.

Creativity In The Digital Classroom-Over 40 Resources-Are They in Your School?

Creativity In The Digital Classroom-Over 40 Resources-Are They in Your School? | Technology for school | Scoop.it

"I believe that creativity is necessary in today’s classroom. In fact, creativity is one of the important 4 C’s (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity) that make up part of the foundation of a 21st century education. The remaining foundation is of course another C (Significant Content). I believe that when you put all of these C’s together you get two more C’s which make up the 'Common Core'."

This post is the first in series and discusses free resources that may be stored on a local computer or a network. The list includes Scratch, Sketc-Up, Gimp, 3 free office suites, Alice, a variety of tools that will help you make movies and more. Most are described in some  detail and there are links to additional resources to help you learn the tool.

Additional posts will discuss Web 2.0 apps that may be used on the Internet (and across platforms), web apps and sites that promote literacy and student publication and web sites that promote student creativity.

Randy Nichols's curator insight, January 15, 2013 6:30 AM

A good list to help you start (or continue) bulding a "digital toolbox" for multimodal compositions. (I will steal some of these ideas for my delicious links!)

ReadWriteThink provides templates for a variety of writing projects that incorporate a cube. The Bio Cube may be used after students have read, or before they write, a biography (or autobiography). The Mystery Cube will help them recall a mystery story after they have read it, or to pre-write one on their own. There is also a story Cube that will help them map out "key elements of a story" and there is Create-Your-Own Cube...you select the questions to a topic and then respons.
