The 35 Most Innovative Apps Of The Year | Digital History Toolbox | Scoop.it



"In the mobile-first 21st century, apps have become one of the most important elements of any product or brand. But as the users of millions of crappy apps can attest, designing a good one is tricky. So what separates a great app from shovelware?

After receiving hundreds of submissions for this year's 2016 Innovation by Design Awards, our jury selected the apps that landed on that magic formula. Check out this year's 33 finalists, and two winners, below."

Nora Morton's insight:
Digital tools continues to change the ways we experience museums.  Cleveland Museum of Art introduces three digital visitor experiences: The Collection Wall, ArtLens, and StudioPlay.  As noted in the article, "But we are not just talking about entertainment, because once the visitor is completely focused, it is possible to let him understand more information in a relaxed atmosphere."

Developing Your Digital Study Skills

Developing Your Digital Study Skills | Digital History Toolbox | Scoop.it
Making the move from our safe and trusted traditional literacy habits to newer digital skills can be quite a challenge, but as teachers I think we are really unlikely to be able to use technology and help our students use technology really effectively unless we are prepared to face this challenge. Technology needs to be more than part of the way we teach but it also has to be part of the way we ourselves continue to learn and part of our everyday professional practice.

Danielarv's curator insight, October 11, 2016 4:25 PM
This article show the importance of technology in the classroom and how the use of an online tool as Scrible can improve the collaborative learning. Scrible is a simple browser plugin that you can activate whenever you find something interesting online. The plugin opens a toolbar which enables to annotate and markup webpages with different colour highlighters, sticky notes and change the colour of the text. Also it enables to share the information with others and create a simple link with this information. These links can be either as ‘read only’ or as ‘editable’ pages where students can see annotations and also add their own; making a collaborative learning.

This Classic Storytelling Model Will Help You Give a Mesmerizing Presentation

This Classic Storytelling Model Will Help You Give a Mesmerizing Presentation | Digital History Toolbox | Scoop.it
Have you ever gotten a sense of déjà vu while reading a book or watching a movie that’s otherwise totally new to you? Obviously you have— so many stories are built on the same foundations of archetypes and tropes. Stripped of complexities, all stories are basically the same: an individual ventures into the unknown to acquire something they desire.

That’s not a new idea— Joseph Campbell broke the door down in 1949 with his book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces. Odysseus, Christ, Captain Ahab, Gautama Buddha, Jane Eyre, Luke Skywalker… different names and faces, different times and places, but all the same story. Not only that, the same effective story. What Campbell called “The Hero’s Journey” has resonated with humanity for millennia, and is the root for so many stories that we cherish.

So why wouldn’t this apply to public speaking? Any muttonhead can tell you that good speeches tell a story. This infographic will show you exactly how Campbell’s 17 Steps can lead to storytelling success. It doesn’t matter if you want to discuss Martin Luther King’s march to Selma, why you deserve a raise, or Walking Dead plot summaries. The Hero’s Journey can apply to almost any presentation.

The History Department with a Fab Lab « William J Turkel | Digital History Toolbox | Scoop.it

For a couple of years I have been working on outfitting the History Department at Western University with a new digital lab and classroom, funded by a very generous grant from our provost. The spaces are now open and mostly set up, and our graduate students and faculty have started to form working groups to teach themselves how to use the hardware and software and to share what they know with others. There is tremendous excitement about the potential of our lab, which is understandable. I believe that it is the best-equipped such space in the world: historians at Western now have their own complete Fab Lab.
