It looks like they are only offering limited numbers of teachers at this stage. I also subscribed, but when I return to the website it's just the same invitation page. Perhaps Nik Peachey can clarify.

Great tool for TEACHERS!

I got a response to my email. I now have a new web address to use to use the site. I suggest you email also so the TeacherBox people know about your interest.

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Create an Online Whiteboard Space | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
Sketchlot is a free collaborative whiteboard service that works on any device that will work on a Chromebook, iPad, Android tablet, or any computer connected to the web. Sketchlot is designed for teacher and student use. Teachers create their own accounts and then inside that account they can create a list of students. Each student is assigned his or her own password to use to join a drawing shared by his or her teacher. Teachers can create as many drawings as they like and share them on an individual basis. Teachers can share their drawings to one or all of their students at a time. Students can create their own sketches to share back to their teachers through Sketchlot.

Umap est un outil de cartographie collaborative libre qui utilise les fonds de cartes OSM (Open Street Map). Il permet de créer ses propres cartes thématiques, de les rendre collaboratives et interactives.

Le Réseau Départemental de Ressources informatiques de la DSDEN du Rhône nous propose ici un tutoriel pour apprendre à faire des cartes personnalisées et à les partager avec d'autres utilisateurs (qui pourront éventuellement les modifier).

Ce tutoriel est téléchargeable au format PDF.

Pour ceux qui veulent approfondir leurs connaissances de cet excellent outil qu'est UMAP, ne manquez pas le guide complet en français sur le Wiki dédié et dont le lien nous est rappelé en fin d'article : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/FR:UMap/Guide

How To Writing: App Smashing With A Publishing Menu - Zig Zag Tech | Tools and Applications | Scoop.it
After our collaborative How To writing project, everyone was quick to get started on their own “expert” stories. Making lists of things we’re experts at helps generate ideas, then the stories start to flow!



We’ve published our writing several different ways this year, so I offered an idea menu of apps to publish with to my class. This is by no means a comprehensive list of tools. I just wanted to provide them a jumping off point to get started when they were ready to publish. Please feel free to download the menu here.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 8, 1:00 PM

I was just sent to this site to look at and I think it has some pretty awesome visual storytelling potential. I have no financial relationship here -- just passing along a new tool for you to consider.


The app is coming to you from the Netherlands and co-founder of myalbum Jos de Schiffart @schiffart.


I've tested out the site and app and really like it. It is very intuitive and easy to work with. The end result visually is stunning. Plus they just released their iPhone app today.


I think lots of you could use this tool -- myself included -- to create fabulous stories for your business. You might want to try it out.


Of course, your success with this tool will depend on actually crafting stories instead of just a progression of photos. You know -- stories that have a beginning-middle-end, a problem and resolution. And don't forget the transformation that occurs, and a key message at the end. But you know what to do!


Have fun with this new app and go create some incredible stories!
