Ik gebruik Canva zelf ook erg veel. Heel eenvoudig mooie plaatjes maken met mooie tekstkaders etc. 

Kost in principe niets, tenzij je een speciale afbeelding gebruikt, want dan betaal je per plaatje 1 euro.

Aanrader!!

Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality

Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality | Websites for Educational and Professional Pursuits | Scoop.it

Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image.  For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster.  Pretty cool, right?  The first time it happens, it seems like magic.

Kahoot! is a blended learning platform which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. Kahoot! is a blended learning platform which creates an engaging learning space, through a game-based digital pedagogy. 
Features
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO EXISTING STUDENT RESPONSE SYSTEMS?
LEARNER-CENTRIC,
USING ANY DEVICE
Not just a clicker, Kahoot! allows learners to both respond AND create with any device that has a web browser and works over wifi or 3G/4G, creating a variety of trusted learning spaces.
GAME-BASED PEDAGOGY
& ACADEMIC RESEARCH
Gaming mechanics provide additional engagement, motivation and rewards through learners' participation, with a game-based pedagogy which is proven by academic research.
SOCIAL IN
BOTH SENSES
The blended learning approach means that as well as the social experience created through asking/answering questions in a physical setting, Kahoot! is a platform for sharing, browsing, favouriting or playing content created by educators and learners globally.

UNDERSTAND, ASSESS AND ADAPT WITH DATA
Formative assessment and adaptive teaching happens though our data providing educators with a ‘snapshot’ of each learners current understanding AND longer term tracking of progress.

Tiina Kumpulainen's curator insight, March 10, 12:01 PM

Opettajan luokassa vetämä tietovisamuotoinen peli. Opettaja näyttää itse pelin tykillä ja oppilaat voivat liittyä siihen ja osallistua kisaan kännykällä, tabletilla tai tietokoneella. Pistetilanne näytetään jokaisen kysymyksen jälkeen. On toiminut hyvin ala-asteella ja motivoinut kaikki mukaan pelaamaan. Käytetty muun muassa sanastovisoina, mutta myös kieliopin opiskeluun monivalintavaihtoehtoina.

After having just read an article about the "droves" of teachers leaving the profession (NOT retiring but leaving), I found this piece. Since I'm nowhere near the retirement point (plus I'm still pretty passionate about my profession) I'm keeping this one handy to boost my spirits when I need it. Enjoy!

We usually see inspiring videos the week before school starts. I say, we need them now! We are dragging and still have 6 weeks to teach. Let's get inspired and finish the year motivated and excited about learning. Our students just may follow suit!
