PowerPoint's built-in templates are convenient, but everyone knows what they look like, and you look unoriginal if that's all you use. Try these tips to make something unique that will help your presentation stand out.

This is a nice simple browser based whiteboard app that runs in the browser on most devices. Would be nice to have a few more features, such as import images etc, but there is also a lot to be said for simplicity.

Nenad Mirkov's curator insight, August 7, 2013 7:11 AM

Easy and usefull :)

Lorie Callander's curator insight, August 16, 2013 11:45 AM

I am trying this too. We'll see. There is also a teacher sign-up for limited sharing with and among students etc. I just want a whiteboard that I can easily access without making plans to leave my classroom to go to where the, difficult to navigate and use, whiteboard is.

Looks interesting,thanks.
Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

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.

Useful for explaining concepts in a visually interesting way.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Web Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Educational Leadership:Teaching with Mobile Tech: How to Transform Teaching with Tablets | Web Resources for the Classroom | Scoop.it

"If students were doing awesome things with an iPad, what would that look like? Here's another way of putting it: How does an iPad align with a vision of meaningful and purposeful learning?

 

Bereft of examples and inspiration, many educators struggle to conceive of iPad integration beyond mere substitution for whatever came before. Educators need guidance on how to leverage iPads as hubs of innovation that nurture the learning skills, competencies, and habits of mind that help students develop skills for today's world.

 

With that in mind, here's a look at two teachers and their iPad-infused classrooms."

Mershon Viscusie's curator insight, May 19, 2015 1:41 PM

Questions to ask:

How will learning be different?

How will students improve as learners? As scholars? As citizens?

What will they be able to do 3 or 4 years after the ipad adoption that they can’t do now?

If ipads are the answer, what was the question?

What does awesome look like?

How does an ipad align with a vision of  meaningful and purposeful learning?

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Looks like a great tool and it's entirely free. I like that it is based on the Wordpress platform, but removes the clutter and distractions that other blogging services have.

Great books give families something to talk about and keep kids engaged. Research shows that kids learn more when they use educational media with adults in their life. Children also learn more when they talk about a book while reading together. Kindoma combines the best of children's learning and family communication!

This is a nice idea. It enables parents or teachers to read books to their students or children using video communication.
