Would students be more interested in learning how to search if they could be delving into music?

DocExplore : logiciel libre pour créer des livres interactifs augmentés | Tools for Classroom or Personal Use | Scoop.it

Alain MICHEL's curator insight, May 7, 12:56 AM

Un nouvel outil, fruit d'un projet universitaire, qui permet de réaliser des présentations enrichies façon livre interactif "augmenté".

Le principe fait un peu penser à celui du logiciel "Images Actives" puisqu'il consiste à définir certaines zones qui seront cliquables sur la page et pour lesquelles on fait apparaître des infos complémentaires (texte ou image ou vidéo) La différence, c'est qu'ici on peut rassembler ces images qui seront interactives sur autant de pages qu'on veut, dans un livre animé.

Exemple de présentation réalisée :

Des tutoriels sont disponibles sur le site :

http://www.docexplore.eu/?page_id=14

DocExplore est un logiciel libre disponible pour l'instant pour Windows et pour MacOS

Section Jeunesse - Marguerite Yourcenar's curator insight, May 9, 6:10 AM

Bernard Buchel's curator insight, June 10, 2:09 AM

Use the “Vanishing Spell” in PowerPoint

Use the “Vanishing Spell” in PowerPoint | Tools for Classroom or Personal Use | Scoop.it

...Speaking of the spell, do you remember the scene when Harry wished he knew a good Vanishing Spell to escape his fan Colin’s photograph-clicking spree? Or the time when Bill Weasley used this incantation to make a stack of scrolls disappear while cleaning up after a meeting of the Order of the Phoenix during Harry's first night at number twelve, Grimmauld Place?

Anna Costikoglou's insight:

 Let objects or text disappear slowly behind an object and later make it appear slowly from behind the same object.
