Free Technology for Teachers: A Handful of Ideas for Using Tellagami In School | Technology | Scoop.it

"Tellagami, a free iOS app that lets you create short animated movies called "Gamis," is one of my new favorite animation apps to explore. Although the site promotes the app as a way to send greetings and messages for use within social media, I see it as a great tool in the classroom. "

I don't think that Minecraft is good! It is a video game not a education tool! I think that teachers should get students outside and enjoy nature while it lasts!!!

UNA QÜESTIÓ DE TEMPS

Si entraras en la casa de la meua germana en Los Angeles, escoltaries els seus crits de "Luca! Deixa el Minecraft! Luca, altra vegada estàs en Minecraft? Luca! N'hi ha prou amb el Minecraft!"

 

Com milions de xiquets de la seua edat, Luca està obsessionat amb el videojoc de Minecraft ... I la meua germana, és la típica mare d'un xiquet típic que li agrada jugar a Minecraft: està preocupada per l'efecte d'aquest joc en el seu cervell.

 

Per a aquells que mai han jugat a Minecraft, és relativament simple. El joc sembla un poc cru perquè no té uns gràfics realistes. En canvi, està construït en 16 bits, un terme informàtic que significa que els gràfics són blocs, com peces de lego gegants, digitals.

Apple iPhone 5s camera leaps two years ahead of entire camera industry – all cameras, not just smartphone cameras

Apple iPhone 5s camera leaps two years ahead of entire camera industry – all cameras, not just smartphone cameras | Technology | Scoop.it

While the tech blogosphere commences the self flagellation over getting it wrong on the whole “Apple needs a cheap iPhone and that’s why it is going to release the iPhone 5c”. The real story, in my opinion, is the one worth a thousand words on each of those aforementioned tech blogs but not getting near that sort of coverage — the new camera in the iPhone 5S. The camera? Yes, the camera.

i feel that with the iPhones growing so rapidly, cameras will start to fade into the backround, because i have already noticed that people are taking their iPhones out to take pictures instead of their cameras. it is less effort, because its everything in one, whereas a camera, is only a camera.
