I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Deakin Study Skills | Scoop.it
For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now.

:-) i think Prezi creates two team: who loves it, and who hates it! :-)
Vittorio Canavese's curator insight, June 4, 2013 8:19 AM

Prezi realizza presentazioni di grande effetto con il minimo sforzo, ma spesso l'autore non riesce a sfruttare il supporto nel migliore dei modi. Questo post fornisce indicazioni utili e semplici almeno per cominciare nel migliore dei modi.

Exploiting Infographics for ELT

Exploiting Infographics for ELT | Deakin Study Skills | Scoop.it

For those of you who haven’t encountered the term ‘infographic’ before, an infographic is a visual representation of, what is often, quite dense statistical information. This is the kind of information which can be very difficult to read as prose / text, but which, when transformed to a visual, can become accessible very quickly.

This is a bit like Pinterest, but with a purpose. You can form your collections of images, videos and texts into collections and present them as online magazines. This is a great tool for student projects. the down side is that you have to register through Facebook.

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | Deakin Study Skills | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.
