30hands app for storytelling and presentation

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.

Nik's QuickShout: Downloading Online video | Technology use in Education | Scoop.it

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.


Via Nik Peachey
Teresa Gibbons's insight:

A quick clip can do wonders, but there is often the worry that something inappropriate will pop up as well. This certainly fills a need. Excellent.

The future of learning requires us to have the tools and the skills of connectivity and collaboration whereby we maintain streaming sources of very relevant and rapidly processable information. This appears to be one of these tools...

`The following is a list, written in the first-person, of ideologies or stances from a Terrible iPad Teacher:"


Via John Evans
Teresa Gibbons's insight:

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.

Met een knipoog: ik heb een iPad en ik gebruik 'm in de klas, daarmee ben ik een effectieve 21ste eeuw onderwijsprofessional. En zo zijn er nog negen 'waarheden'.

Great advice!
