Multiple Media Search | Walnut Media Literacy | Scoop.it

I have to say that I think Spezify has just become my favourite new search engine. I think this is a really great search engine to use in class with students or to get them to use. It's really simple. It displays all results as images and it searches a wide range of multiple media sources such as video, image Twitter etc, not only text.

I think if departments reviewed their faculty, it would become clear to them which teachers should *not* be forced into using technology in the classroom.  Questionably, if those teachers cannot teach the assigned material any longer, they may be driven to learn it in order to keep their jobs, but honestly, if teachers don't possess these traits in today's world, the only thing they should probably be driven to is a different job....

Morgan Kroes's curator insight, September 27, 2013 11:57 AM

I upgraded to iOS 7 and I like it. It's a lot more modern looking. Everything is fancier, and even though they took a few things away, overall I like it. It originally slowed down my phone a lot, and drained a ton of battery. But I fixed it by switching some settings, and that was my only problem with it. Overall I like iOS 7.

Margaret Kooser's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:14 PM
iOS7 is a great improvement. Though I don't have an Iphone the friends of mine that do seem to be very pleased with there new update. Though the updates are looking more and more like Windows7 and Androids, I think it has a very creative and different quality that a lot of people do enjoy.

The voting 'eggs' in the suitcase, where each needed to be programmed, are obsolete.  Students and teachers can use their web devices to quickly set up polls and other interactive feedback quickly and easily with web based options, of which this is one of the simplest.  For iPad users, check out NearPod, Socrative, or Doceri, each with its own feature ist, to see which works best for you!  It can be difficult to move from traditonal modes of presentation to building interaction into instruction, but I am trying to plan future PD courses using this type of technology.  I would love feedback from teachers and professional development specialists about what works, pitfalls to look out for, and any other resources that you may suggest.
