This is a GREAT tool for teachers, allowing for teachers to crop, overlay with audio, embed questions, and more!  I especially like that you can embed questions in the video for student responses to check for their understanding.  It's a wonderful way to formatively assess.

Teaching With Infographics

Teaching With Infographics | Education Technology - theory & practice | Scoop.it

"This past week I taught a few classes on infographics and decided to update the page by adding a section called "Teaching With Infographics". It is important for your students to make sure that they evaluate any infographics they are using, by making sure the author/creator has cited their references. Misinformation on the web exists. Have students read these tips to make a better infographic."

Claudia Estrada's curator insight, February 23, 2014 2:56 PM

Working with info graphics has become an important skill now a days because new generation reads better images with less text.  Helping students to become good users of it is developing 21st. century learners.

The Simplest Way To Record and Share Screen Actions: Recordit [Mac]

Robin Good's curator insight, February 26, 2014 11:02 AM



Recordit.co is a new app for the Mac that allows you to easily record any screen action and to share it instantly with anyone.


Recordit is a super-simplified screencasting tool, that takes away any possible complexity or technical issues from recording screen actions.


This tool is ideal to share or report a bug you encounter in a certain app or to show where to click and what to choose to someone unfamiliar with a certain online service.


Free to use.


Download it now: http://recordit.co/ 


N.B.: It requires Mac OSX 10.9





Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, February 26, 2014 10:42 PM

A really quick tool for the Mac, but can do the same with Quicktime. Not sure if my firewall is preventing this from running. Recorded 5 seconds of footage from 1/4 of my screen on my MacBook Pro and has been cycling for about 5 minutes. Personally I pay the money and use ScreenFlow, which also allows webcam and microphone input together with screen casting and computer sound. Once finished recording the Screenflow editor pops up to allow you to adjust any of the shot.

Writing doesn´t have to be a tedious process and we can enhance it with some tools.  

It might develop some creativity too!

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 23, 2014 12:49 PM

Using comic strips is one powerful way to get students excited and motivated about the writing act. Students love to interact with visuals and tools such as the ones listed below will empower them to do just that. Using these comic strip generators , students will get  to engage in conversations using cartoonic characters and build stories and share their works with each other.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 28, 2014 7:45 PM

I like these ideas! Teaching comic strip writing can be lots of fun!
