Make It Real with iFakeText - Edutech for Teachers -Jamie Forshey @EduTech20

Make It Real with iFakeText - Edutech for Teachers -Jamie Forshey @EduTech20 | CCAFMS Technology Resources | Scoop.it
Yeah, we all know how much students like to text… So, why not leverage this obsession by taking advantage of a web tool like ifaketext.com, a nifty online generator that mimics the real thing. Not only is it super simple to use, but it’s a visually engaging way to allow students to demonstrate what they know in a unique way. Plus, there’s nothing quite like using one of the most popular forms of social media to grab our students’ interest and attention, right?

Hi there! FYI - the first tool listed there is the YouTube editor, but YouTube retired the editor a few weeks ago.

Hilarious Ted Talks for the Classroom – Engaging and Effective Teaching

Hilarious Ted Talks for the Classroom – Engaging and Effective Teaching | CCAFMS Technology Resources | Scoop.it
After years of testing out various talks in the classroom, I finally found a few that always go over well with my high school students. Of course, it has a lot to do with the talks being funny. Who doesn’t like to laugh? But there’s also a deeper meaning and positive message with each that resonates with the students. There is no particular order to this list. They each are awesome in their own right.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 9, 2017 10:01 AM
What was once a web filled with code and scrolling text, the Internet is now the world’s largest conglomerate of images. And as visual content continues to rule, the number of images available online will only grow. But just because you can Google an image — and technically copy or save it — doesn’t mean the web is a free-for-all of visual data. Photographers and designers need to put food on the table. If every online image was available for free, there would be a lot more starving artists. Fortunately for them, copyrights apply in cyberspace just as in print. And anyone using an image without appropriate rights and permissions can find themselves in plenty of hot water. Understanding the ins and outs of image licensing and usage can save digital marketers, web designers and other content curators from unnecessary penalties, ranging from cease and desist notices to lawsuits and financial demands. Want to be sure you properly use images in your online content? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just follow our five simple steps, and you just might save yourself a load of legal trouble.

Creative Commons remains the best licensing system that promotes creative work and its appreciated.
