Electric Slide - deliver PowerPoint, documents and videos to any screen | Technology Technology Technology | Scoop.it

Electric Slide is the easiest way to wirelessly present PowerPoint slides, Office documents, PDFs and videos with your iPhone or iPad. Your device is a remote control that works anywhere with any screen. Since viewers just need your simple URL to follow along, setup is a cinch. You can also connect your device directly to a TV or projector via HDMI or VGA.

I agree Jacq! For some, the pricing won't be an issue. For sole proprietors, it could be something to carefully consider.

Absolutely cool. Now, how to make it work in a classroom with a diverse student population who perhaps cannot afford iThings...and the classroom PCs are not wireless...hmmm...

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog | Technology Technology Technology | Scoop.it

 

 

Susan Gunelius does a great job of suggesting how to put to good use the content curation potential on your own blog site.

 

Here her first two recommendations:


1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated:
It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.


2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts:
You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.

 

 

 

Good advice. Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

 

To get the remaining points, please read full original article here: http://weblogs.about.com/od/writingablog/tp/5-Ways-To-Curate-Content-On-Your-Blog.htm

An Infinite Collaborative Image Canvas: CanvasDropr

An Infinite Collaborative Image Canvas: CanvasDropr | Technology Technology Technology | Scoop.it

CanvasDropr provides a virtually infinite online canvas on which you and your friends / contacts can easily add, position, resize and rotate photos and video clips at will.

CanvasDropr can be used to brainstorm around visual collections, to select and organize images, and to prepare visual portfolios or tours to share with others or to be published online. 

 

From the official site: "The center of the CanvasDropr idea is to work and collaborate on a so-called "Canvas".

 

The canvas can be shared by an unlimited amount of people, and changes made in the canvas are updated real-time in every user’s canvas.

 

Users can easily drag and drop new images directly from their desktop onto the canvas."

 

CanvasDrops allows you to text chat in real-time with other "collaborators" you have invited as well as to set permissions for what "public" users can edit or modify on a "public canvas.

 

It is possible to place photos and video clips coming from Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Picasa or to import one simply by providing its URL. 

 

The final canvas can be shared on FB or Twitter, downloaded as an "image" or a .zip file containing all of its images and can also be "embedded" on any site or blog.

 

The service is free to use.

 

Check this video: http://vimeo.com/31591478 ;
