Another aspect of the book I liked very much was the number of resources suggested. I try to keep abreast of techie stuff but I had no idea of the existence of some of the excellent websites for creating presentations, infographics, videos and so on. I’m looking forward to retying them out!

Bottom line: the book is excellent, and excellent value for money. Even if you don’t teach media literacy or digital literacy, buy the book just to try out all the resources yourself.

8 Powerful iPad Apps That Support Inquiry-based Learning ~ EdTech and MLearning

8 Powerful iPad Apps That Support Inquiry-based Learning ~ EdTech and MLearning | Tools!!! | Scoop.it
“ Inquiry-based learning is a constructive, dialogic and student-centred learning strategy that uses questions as a locomotive for learning. And as we have argued elsewhere, inquiry-based learning is radically different from traditional modes of learning where much of the focus is placed on things such as drills, memorization and rote learning. In inquiry-based learning, students are driven by a sense of curiosity in an investigative process that involves posing questions and exploring different learning paths. In today’s post, we are sharing with you some excellent iPad apps that support the ethos of inquiry based learning. For web tools that support inquiry-based learning check out this page.”

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius | Tools!!! | Scoop.it

"I read recently that content curation is dead. I have a few different arguments against this concept, but for now, I’ll keep it short and sweet: Content curation is not dead, and while the debate over curating content online vs creating new content will rage on and on, curating content for other reasons is still going strong.

 That said, there are a lot of different ways to go about content curation, so we’ve test driven a few different tools so you can figure out which might work best for you whether you’re curating content for work projects, assigning it as a school project, for your own professional development, or personal interests."

I'm rescooping this for three reasons. First, the term "curation" is fairly new to me and it is nice to see how different forms it can take. Secondly, I read so many blogposts entitled "10 tools for this" or "35 reasons for that". It is nice too see one of those where all of the 6 tools are actually great. Third, the fact that I actually have experience with three of the six tools makes me feel good. So enjoy :)

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post

Inspiring Writing using Adventure Game Creation with Book Creator App - Sept 2014 Blog Post | Tools!!! | Scoop.it

This term I have been working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils to develop interactive adventure style games in Book Creator. One of the features of the app is it allows you to link objects such as images and text to other pages within the book. For images, tap on the image to select it, then tap on the Info icon and use the hyperlink box to type in the page number. For text, highlight the text withIn the text box and you will see a hyperlink option.

This has enabled us to create games where choices, questions and decisions are asked of the user/player throughout. We have then used this as a stimulus for writing, not only creatively but also instruction and advertising. Above are a few screen shots of an example book I made but I didn't want to show the pupils too much as I wanted them to come up with their own ideas.

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Tools!!! | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:
