Common Sense Definitions

html - Hypertext Markup Language

Tells the bowser what the creator wants the web page to look like. It will tell the page to have purple writing that is a certain size. Is considered a script language.

 

A programming language will tell the computer to do something, i.e. count to 10.

 

Widgets - small applications used within a browser to complete a specific task.

 

Apps are programs that accessed via the Internet. Usually have a very specific function such as accessing a particular website.

 

RSS - Really Simple Syndication

A stripped down version of blogs and news brought to you through subscribing to the RSS feed from a RSS feed reader. An example of a RSS reader is Google Reader. This save you time because you only see updates on new posts to material you have chosen.

 

Social Bookmarking - Marking websites for other people to see and use. This page is an example, as is Symbaloo.

 

Web 2.0 - Associated with Tim O'Reilly from the O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 Conference in 2004. It is a phrase that was coined to express a change in the way that people use computers.  Everything is based around the idea of sharing.

 

Cloud Computing - Information is no longer just stored on your computer or flash drive. It is stored off-site. Where is it? Who knows, hence the cloud reference.

Yodio - Add voice to photos

Yodio - Add voice to photos | Educational Websites | Scoop.it

This is a neat website that allows you to combine pictures and custom audio. You can also do stand alone audio. My best friend, who is a special education teacher uses this website along with Edmodo to communicate with parents. She has her students record weekly audio readings that she can upload to her Edmodo page. She can then send out emails or texts to parents to allow them access to their child's yodio.

Piktochart

Tech Chicks sent out a tweet about this website, so I had to check it out. I must say that it is easier than Gloster. I haven't had much time to play with it today, but I hope to in the coming weeks. They also recommended an app called Display Recorder which I love. It is one of only a handful of apps I have paid for, but I think it will be well worth it.

Paparazzi!

Kim Gunter's insight:

This is something to have on your computer. It allaws you to take a full screen snapshot without doing anything other than copying and pasting the  url of the page. Saves the image as a jpeg.
