Anyone who has used the Prezi platform would know that creating a Prezi and uploading it to Prezi.com is easy enough, however when it comes to converting it to a YouTube video, there seems to be no native method of doing so...

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Websites to Share with Students in English Language Arts Classrooms | Scoop.it
E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages
Tracee Orman's insight:

Great article explaining how the brain interprets text in two different formats (on screen vs. on paper). I knew there had to be a reason why reading from a book has advantages over a screen and this article offers great explanations. In my own classroom research, those who read the paper copy of books do far better on assessments than those who read the digitial copies. Also, students score better on paper tests/quizzes than on online assessments. Knowing how long the quiz or test is and being able to look back or look forward on assignments and in books really is important.

Cool! I wonder if there is one for older students/adults. My students use tagxedo.com, but can't place the words themselves. It would be nice if they had that control. Thanks for sharing!

Finding Google Images For “Reuse” | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | Websites to Share with Students in English Language Arts Classrooms | Scoop.it

On my popular The Best Online Sources For Images list, I briefly describe how to search for images on Google that are licensed for “reuse.” Google says if you use it, its “results will only include pages that are either labeled as public domain or carry a license that allows you to copy or redistribute its content, as long as the content remains unchanged.”


Via Donna Browne, Tracee Orman
Tracee Orman's insight:

Share these tips with your students so they can find public domain and free for "reuse" images for their projects and assignments.
