15 Best Online Presentation Tools for Students

15 Best Online Presentation Tools for Students | Integrating curriculum | Scoop.it

There are some fantastic online presentation tools for students that allow users to mix media and create engaging, fun and interactive slideshows. No one wants to sit through a boring PowerPoint presentation, let alone a class full of students with a low attention span. Using website presentation tools, students can collaborate in group projects or work solo, designing inspiring dynamic presentations that tell a story about their chosen topic. These tools are easy to use, and most have special education sections, so teachers can set up their class as quickly as possible. The list below includes tools for creating slideshows, digital storytelling and poster type mixed media presentations.

The Power of Connecting Students on Edmodo [Video] | Integrating curriculum | Scoop.it

Mrs. Price hopes you’ll share the video with your network and inspire other teachers to experience the power of Edmodo for themselves. Though she considered herself technologically-challenged when she first got started, Mrs. Price now knows that Edmodo is so much more than a tool that helps teachers understand the digital language of today’s students; it also allows students to speak up for themselves and to each other.

This infographic is really cool. It provides a simplistic view of the various multiple intelligences and is very helpful as to what educators can do to help each student learn according to their way of learning.
