How Can I Make My PowerPoint Presentations Amazing? | useful teaching resources | Scoop.it

"Dear Lifehacker, I have been tasked to make a slideshow for an event at work. I don’t want to make a generic PowerPoint with just boring text or pictures. What are some ways I can enhance the slideshow so it looks impressive and knocks the socks off my audience?"

I agree with you, Elke. PPT is more customizable and powerful.

Comics: Asian creators using the medium for social and gender justice

Comics: Asian creators using the medium for social and gender justice | useful teaching resources | Scoop.it

"This is pretty interesting video from Sharad Sharma – a growing network of mostly female creators who are utilising the comics medium and comics workshops to empower women and address social issues pertaining to gender in their part of the world, and also build on those strips to use them for other social commentary and discussion (such as creating comics addressing widespread issues of official corruption)."

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | useful teaching resources | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.

Your health plan – now with video games

Your health plan – now with video games | useful teaching resources | Scoop.it

Consumers and health experts alike have long tried to make healthy choices seem more palatable by adding a dose of fun. (Think parents sneaking vegetables into their kids’ macaroni and cheese.) Now, companies are getting in on the action, using games to nudge employees in a more healthful direction.

 

Experts say such game-like health programs can be used to encourage consumers to engage in a wide range of healthy activities—everything from working out to getting flu shots.

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | useful teaching resources | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Be sure to check out Wikipedia’s own resources for teachers as well. They have an awesome 12-week syllabus showing you exactly how you can integrate Wikipedia into your classroom. They also have training designed especially for educators."

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.
