Exposure enables photographers to easily tell vibrant stories with their photos. Assemble a more complete narrative than you could with a feed or lonely photo on a permalink page.
Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a really great tool for browser or mobile. It has loads of really beautiful photo narratives and students can use it to collect their photos and produce their own.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, March 25, 2014 2:27 PM

A lovely tool, but the free version is really just a trial. Not too expensive, though, at only $5 a month for anyone who has need of it. 

JordiMarínba's curator insight, March 26, 2014 5:53 AM

Ready to create your amazing narratives with your mobile? This is a great tool which assembles photos on a permalink page.

10 Lessons in Digital Literacy | PeacheyPublications.com | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

This e-booklet contains a collection of ten lesson plans to help you develop students' digital literacies and critical thinking skills. Based around authentic infographics the lessons start by using discussion to help students access what they already know about the topics and then move on to comprehension and a range of tasks that help students to explore the validity and authenticity of the information they find. They finish with structured research and presentation tasks that encourage students to work collaboratively and share what they have learned.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Allo and Duo: new apps for smart messaging and video calling

Allo and Duo: new apps for smart messaging and video calling | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Duo is a simple, fast one-to-one video calling app for everyone—whether you’re on Android or iOS, a fast or slow connection, in New York or New Delhi. Like Allo, Duo is based on your phone number, allowing you to reach anyone in your phonebook. And its simple interface fades away when you’re in a call, so it’s just the two of you.
Nik Peachey's insight:

Duo looks like a very interesting and simple to use video communication tool.

If you are looking for specific, but new phrases to use, this may be of interest to you.  People collect their own phrases, idioms and collocations and use them in sentences to show how they are used. It's much like a vocabulary list, but instead of words, there are phrases.
