5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic

5 Tips For Using Pinterest In Your Classroom | Edudemic | Techy Touchy Tools | 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!

Task 2: Create Your Own Flickr Page

Having your own Flickr account with a collection of images that you can use for teaching can be really useful. Flickr is a great place to store, share and find useful images and there are many other sites and web 2.0 type tools that take images from flickr and use them in applications, so if you have your own Flickr account you can make sure you use your own images when working with students.

Seems cool

Lyndsay's curator insight, April 3, 2013 10:17 PM

With the inclusion of literacy as a general capability within the Technologies Curriculum along with students being able to use a range of digital systems for diverse purposes (ACARA, 2013), this resource would be beneficial. It allows educators to use Fotobabble on the iPad to add audio recordings to images and then convert them to short video clips. This would also increase students engagement and would allow them to be involved in their learning.

How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios

How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios | Techy Touchy Tools | Scoop.it
As iPads proliferate in schools around the world, and students as well as teachers create more and more content, questions about what to do with all of those learning objects have arisen.

Lou Salza's curator insight, January 19, 2013 6:13 PM

"With recent upgrades to the Google Drive app on the iPad, it is now a viable solution for student portfolios that can be created in their entirety on iPad. Everything that is created by a student can be uploaded directly to their Google Drive account and into a “Portfolio” folder that can then be shared with any one of their teachers.

The Google Drive app now allows for thecreation of Documents, Spreadsheets, and Folders. Plus, the ability to upload photos and videos from the camera roll. WIth many PDF annotation apps such as Notability and Paperport Notes now allowing direct upload to Google Drive, the process of curating student work becomes even easier.

The video tutorial below explains the process of creating, uploading and sharing within the Google Drive app on an iPad...."

Teach - A cool app for iPad

Get Teach on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Carmen Arias 's insight:

Knowmia Teach is a new free lesson planning and recording tool for teachers. It helps you create short video lessons on any subject and publish them on Knowmia.com so your students and the public can find them. Knowmia Teach makes it easy to bring in visual aids from multiple sources, organize them in steps (like slides in a presentation) and use your own voice and fingers to bring your lesson to life. You can design each step in the lesson, record illustrations as you draw them, and create sophisticated animation sequences with a simple stroke of a finger. We also give you the ability to describe your lesson in a way that makes it simple for any student who is interested in the subject to find your video.
