Somehow I find Jing less intrusive than any Google product that asks for access to my private e-mail information. Maybe I'm just being naive.

30hands app for storytelling and presentation

Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling. Like pages in a book, photos or images are dragged around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, the teacher or student records audio over each image. Finally, the story or presentation can be published to the device’s photo area or uploaded to a 30hands collaborative learning site.

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names | world education | Scoop.it

By Ally Greer:


There are such things as stupid questions.


Just kidding, there aren’t. (Got your attention, though, right?)

 

I don’t care how many times we were told this growing up – I always find myself thinking, “Don’t ask that, that’s dumb. You should know that.” Well, guess what? Like I talked about in my last post, so many people of today’s world are in a perpetual state of learning. There is always something that seems obvious to one person that another person might not have ever thought about. The whole reason that conversing with others can be so amazing is because everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn. Why we view this as being stupid and not as an opportunity to extract new information is beyond me.


Don’t be afraid to keep asking.

Asking and answering questions quickly becomes the foundation for lifelong learning. Ally's insights reveal a young mind that's already addicted to learning (foreever).  A great read. 

Mindy M Walker's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:46 PM

Worth going through this post. If you don't know - learn - how to ask questions, you won't keep learning. Agreed - there are no stupid questions.

Dintinction is important when you start a new business - to distinguish your business offering as well as You as a Leader for the organization you represent.

There are some good suggestions in this.

Working on being a professional development leader? Know that your audience is King...context is more important than content. This makes me reevaluate all of my professional development sessions.

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

I agree the article raises some valid points and those are true no matter what software (or even manual flip charts etc) you use. There is more to giving an effective presentation than starting up PowerPoint (or any software) and it is really up to the presenter to ensure he/she captures the audience....
