Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 28, 2013 6:53 AM

This seems to be one of the microblogging platforms of choice for teens at the moment. It centres around creative expression and although you can use it through the browser it has been designed for use on mobile. Great for creating video, audio and image up dates. Very nicely designed platform.

Elizabeth Catania's curator insight, November 25, 2013 2:05 PM

I think it is so exciting to teach English pedagogy through multimedia. New Literacies as they call it, is so innovative and truly allows a student to make deeper, more menaingful connections from what they already know to what they are working towards learning. Knowledge is only power when you can use it and apply it as you share what you know with others!

FlipQuiz | Gameshow-style Quiz Boards for Educators | Free-Tools for ClassRM | Scoop.it

FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.
