Bunkr Is The PowerPoint Killer We’ve All Been Waiting For

Bunkr Is The PowerPoint Killer We’ve All Been Waiting For | Verktyg för skolan | Scoop.it

French startup Bunkr is focused on one simple task: killing PowerPoint. To achieve this goal, the company’s well-designed web app will help you collect visual content and organize it into slides. The result is a very visual HTML5 presentation that works on your computer, phone or tablet. You can export your work in PDF or PPT as well.

Looks like a very functional app that will enable rapid production of slide decks. Cost is $3 per month. I think I'd rather buy it than rent it.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, August 30, 2013 3:37 AM

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad

How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad | Verktyg för skolan | Scoop.it

"The idea of a paperless classroom is not new.

 

In fact, there was recently one very good blog, TeachPaperless, dedicated to this very idea. In short, the idea promotes not just a reduction of paper and other physical resources, but rather a more efficient workflow, quicker communication, improved access to learning materials, seamless digital portfolios, and more naturally connected student-teacher-student networks."

Sarah Hibbeln's curator insight, November 14, 2013 9:01 PM

This article I thought was AMAZING! It intersted me a lot that video games might be able to treat Dyslexia people. The University of Padua in Italy found that 10 kids with dyslexia who played an action-filled video game for an 80-minute sessions increased their reading speed! These video games help Dyslexia people in focusing attention onto letters and words in an orderly way. Apparently, video games make you focus on the players to constantly redirecting their attention to different targets. The training worked on visual attention skills and reading hand in hand, and the reading improvements even exceeded those obtained in children after traditional therapies for dyslexia.  Dyslexia need to focus on building language skills, which video games improve. Finally, This article needs to get out more and help people in not only the U.S. but the whole world.
