5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas. 

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, October 21, 2014 9:27 AM

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Frog Dissection for iPad is an app that is popular with biology teachers. The latest version of the app includes more labels, quizzes, and videos. Of course, the main purpose of the app still remains. That purpose is to provide a virtual environment in which students can dissect a frog just as they would if they had a frog and a scalpel in your classroom. The app provides step-by-step directions for students to follow as they virtually dissect their frogs."

A cleaner way to learn about dissection.

Linda Jones's curator insight, May 24, 2013 10:19 AM

What a great way to introduce dissection to students.

Lee Hall's curator insight, May 24, 2013 2:11 PM

This would be good practice even if you are going to let them dissect an actual frog.

More great ideas for educators!

This looks perfect for the firsties! 

Lee Hall's curator insight, June 10, 2013 4:55 PM

It is more fun to learn creating you own story. The word story makes it sound like a fantasy tale, but it could be steps in a process, a summary of what you have learned in class, or a biography

Have You Tried The Aurasma App? ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Have You Tried The Aurasma App? ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"I went to Edcamp Detroit last weekend and Erin Klein shared a free app that she has used in her classroom with a lot of success.  The app is called Aurasma.  The app allows individuals to create and publish their own augmented reality experiences they call "Auras."  I'm sure you are thinking the same thing I was thinking when Erin was talking about this app, "Sounds cool, but what does it do?"  Students and teachers can make lessons come alive with this platform.  It is difficult to explain so I will explain it step by step, then show you what it looks like in action."
