Guides in PowerPoint 2010

Guides in PowerPoint 2010 | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 is a program for creating various types of slide to be displayed as a presentation in a slide show. A slide show is a set of slides shown on a computer monitor at specific intervals, depending on what each slide shows. You can decide how long each slide is to remain on screen in your presentation.
You can also use PowerPoint to create different types of designed printed matter and slide show. A slide can include text, images, videos and other objects which you can place in your slide in an ordered way. To achieve a uniform style, PowerPoint uses background templates to control the format content throughout each presentation...

Academy of the future Part 5

This is a short talk I gave way back in 2009 about the possibilities of developing education using the same business model that Google use for their business. This was done in a tongue in check way at the time, but seems to be more and more possible.

To cut to the quick, Schank thinks Higher Education is a con. You pay through the nose for not very much more than a three or four year vacation and a good social life. The courses are poor and the system designed to select researchers.

#No! O que e como ensinamos [ensinamos?!] é consequência da má formação docente.. e formação continuada 'out', da desalorização salarial que obriga muitos a fazer bicos no tempo que poderiam estar se atualizando.. resultado das polítivas píblicas deficitárias na #edu!!

How tablets are invading the classroom

How tablets are invading the classroom | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Are tablets really the answer for education? We think so, but the truth is that touch devices are so popular right now that they’re being touted as the answer to everything. A few years back, before tablets burst onto the scene, there was a push to equip students with netbooks, but it was met with mixed results. Having an entire school filled with tablet-equipped students has obvious benefits, but cost and device management are serious hurdles to overcome.

Tablets are hot right now, with a lot of schools choosing them over laptops for 1:1 programs. Which would you rather have in your classroom?

Best Flashmob Videos from Around the World, Cultural Flash Mobs...

 

It's Friday and time for some fun!

 


On Fridays I often post something playful or creative to start our weekend off right.

I thought these videos of flash mobs from around the world really great -- they made me want to get up and dance :)) And they create great stories to share! Just imagine the stories people will share about their experience participating or watching.

 

Storytelling is a creative expression -- and I love flash mobs as a creative expression of people: the singing, dancing, choreography, the element of surprise, and the sheer joy that's involved. Grass roots art -- and that's what storytelling has always been, too. Let's celebrate that also, this Thanksgiving weekend!

 

Having recently participated in the flash mob dinner event Diner en Blanc here in San Diego, I can tell you what a hoot flash mobs are. 

 

My favorite video here is the one from Mumbai, India. The NYC one is OK but too orchestrated for me. But I do love the images from the event -- they are really cool.

 

Jeanne Melanson @empowerhere sent the link to me, thinking I'd like to curate it. She was right! Thank you Jeanne.

 

Enjoy these videos and get your dancing shoes on for the weekend!

Four Slideshow Tools, From Simple to Sophisticated

Four Slideshow Tools, From Simple to Sophisticated | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it
Whether you're trying to create a fun, casual compilation of your favorite photos, or a slick, sophisticated slideshow, we have the tools for you. Each one offers a free option, but you definitely get more when you pay.

 

You have all of these digital photos stashed away in the corners of your hard drive. They'd make a lovely gift or year-end memento. You could print them out and slide them into a photo album—but that's so 2002, and we're down to the wire for holiday shipping as is. Why not create a slick online slideshow instead?

Taking care of your own continuing professional development (CPD)

This talk looks at how business English teachers can access online networks and resources to ensure that they stay in touch with their profession and continue to grow as professionals. This area is of particular importance for BE teachers who often work in an environment that isolates them from other language teaching professionals. Awareness of online resources, digital networking practices and information literacies can help them to ensure that they continue to develop whilst building a personal profile within the global online community.
