RealTimeboard biedt veel mogelijkheden om visueel en met bestanden, commentaren en tekst online samen te werken. Het Board kan gekoppeld worden aan Google Drive bestanden en presentaties. Gratis, in beta. 

 

(Ik heb het zelf nog niet geprobeerd, maar het ziet er indrukwekkend uit. Testers: voeg je reactie toe. Vind ik leuk ;-) )

Looks really useful for live online sessions and when used in tendem with Skype for audio interactions this provides a good alternative to web-conferncing tools like WiZiQ or Adobe Connect Pro.

How To Use Google Drive and Evernote To Create Digital Portfolios | The Best of Web 2.0 for schools | Scoop.it

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...."

Christine Bushong's curator insight, January 28, 2013 12:49 PM

I used Glogster EDU for the school wiki home page with the graphics used as links to wiki pages.  It's easy and effective.  This looks like an interesting way to use their graphics and link together glogs in a series to create a presentation.  Worth trying.

Mural.ly - a tool to fluidly lay out all ideas on one simple digital board

Mural.ly - a tool to fluidly lay out all ideas on one simple digital board | The Best of Web 2.0 for schools | Scoop.it

"Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It’s easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

What draws me to use the site is the ability to fluidly lay out all your ideas, thoughts, images, and whatever else you want on one simple board. It’s designed to be home to your random ideas, inspiration, and other thoughts."

This has so many possiblities for students.  The ability to collaborate and share resources on a project, creating a place for an artist to brainstorm their ideas, and a place to brainstorm for content, planning or curriculum.  Looking forward to learning more about this site and how to implement in the classroom.

Kimberley Lyles-Folkman, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 23, 2013 9:20 PM

We used mural.ly as a class...so far we like it as a tool in which to share ideas.

Strumento webware per la produzione di animazioni che possono essere utilizzate per la didattica. E' possibile realizzare narrazioni (storytelling) o ricostruzioni di processi.

streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:10 AM
Some day I would love to hear some stories of your past life as a journalist and how you moved from structure to the flow of story. What I like the most of a good news article, (written by a decent journallist), is the lead. In the B2B world, "having a point" is missed far too often and replaced with fluff words, such as state of the art. In this way, even though both news and B2B content march to a different drummer, as Simon Sinek points out, start with why, the rest will follow. Yet I also firmly belief a good story needs to follow the right flow to connect with and move the listener. On re-invent, no fear, we violently agree, it is a metaphor us engineers use all the time. To re-invent implies we are using things of the past, such as a wheel...
streetsmartprof's comment, January 17, 2013 8:12 AM
Small clarification, on start with why, I do not mean the story starts this way. As Simon points out, the why is in all things one does and helps us build what it is we are trying to achieve.
Karen Dietz's comment, January 17, 2013 4:39 PM
Hi John/Ken -- I love these comments! I was able to move from structure to story flow by taking oral storytelling classes with some of the top folks in the story performance arena. I could myself very lucky to have had those experiences and encourage everyone I can to take some oral storytelling classes. And creating writing classes along the way sure helped too! As you say, lead-ins are so important and so many folks I coach/train struggle with how to open a story. I think my training as a journalist definitely helped there. I totally agree with your points about fluff and starting out with why, and flow. LOL on the re-invent! Great minds think alike :)
