Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices

Free Technology for Teachers: Read Write Think Timeline - A Timeline Tool for Almost All Devices | Tools and apps for ELT | Scoop.it

"Read Write Think offers a bunch of great web, iOS, and Android applications for students. One of those that I recently learned about from David Kapuler is Read Write Think's Timeline creator. RWT Timline is available as a web app (Flash required), as an Android app, and as an iPad app. All three versions make it easy for students to create timelines for any series of events."


Via John Evans
Richard Whiteside's insight:

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

With this Timeline tool, students could create timelines of the plot of a story they've read. Or they could use it to plan the plot line of a story they're planning to write.

Pixiclip funciona como uma tela em branco online onde se pode fazer esboços, escrever, anotar sobre uma imagem, gravar enquanto fala e, no final, partilhar com quem quiser.

As ferramentas são mínimas e básicas, o processo de criação é muito simples, tal como o registo do utilizador.

Simples e funcional!

ScreenChomp

ScreenChomp | Tools and apps for ELT | Scoop.it
This whiteboard app records touchscreen interactions and audio so you can share your ideas through video. ScreenChomp was developed with teachers and students in mind.
Richard Whiteside's insight:

From the people who brought us Jing, this is a great little app with loads of potential. It's like Jing, it's screen recording software, but it's for the iPad. Choose photo background, draw on screen and record the screen as well as audio. I love it already!

Make Presentations Different

Make Presentations Different | Tools and apps for ELT | Scoop.it

With SlideIdea, presentations are no longer a one-man show. SlideIdea gives presenters the tools to engage their audience through their audience’s smart phones, laptops, and tablets. Each SlideIdea presentation is provided a unique URL (i.e, www.sld.im/12345 ). Regardless of the location, an audience can simply input the URL into their internet browser and then immediately follow along with slides, participate in polls, ask questions, or even network.

Does look good this, I've only watched the intro video, but the idea of audience interaction could be quite a useful affordance.

Luís Cálix's curator insight, February 16, 2014 4:38 PM

Slideidea, uma nova ferramenta online de criação de slides, permite-lhe criar excelentes apresentações a partir de uma coleção de templates moderna e muito completa.

Mas onde Slideidea se distingue verdadeiramente da concorrência é nas suas possibilidades de interação com a audiência: cada apresentação recebe um url único, para partilha, que permite, ao público acompanhar a apresentação slide a slide, fazer comentários, votações, questões, etc.

Slideideia permite ainda importar (e melhorar) apresentações Powerpoint e ficheiros Pdf.

Não chega? Muito bem: com Slideideia pode ainda gravar as suas falas durante a apresentação. Excelente!

This is an excellent idea for letting kids work through your presentations at their own pace. I wonder how it integrates with Keynote for importing existing work?

I am definitely going to have a play with this one.

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Tools and apps for ELT | Scoop.it

"Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?

 

Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."

Digital writing is an integral part of the writing process.  Another way to enjoy writing;)

harloff's curator insight, November 28, 2013 7:29 AM

Touch technologies can bring haptics back to the process of writing - thus still beeing digital. We have seen great advances in how we consume content, but less in how we create it.
