Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling. Like pages in a book, photos or images are dragged around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, the teacher or student records audio over each image. Finally, the story or presentation can be published to the device’s photo area or uploaded to a 30hands collaborative learning site.
iDesktop.tv provides a really useful and user friendly service for anyone who wants to use video clips from sources like YouTube, but doesn't want their students looking around at anything unsuitable, or for anyone who has ever found a really useful clip, only to go back later and find it has moved or been removed.
This is extremely worthwhile reading. Teachers who seek information and are lifelong learners have great success in the classroom not only by finding what works for the class, but also by modeling learning excitement. Technology greatly enhances the classroom but does not replace developing relationships with your students.
