Kaizena · Give Great Feedback · Voice Comments for Google Drive

Ok this is rather cool. Kaizena allows you to record verbal feedback to a Google document.

 

You share your Google Drive with Kaixena and select the file that you wish to add the feedback too.

 

When the page loads you see who you are sharing the file with on the left hand side.

 

Your pointer turns into a highlighter and you highlight the section that you want to feedback on. When this is done you get three options:

Add a recording, add a commment or add a http link

 

Click on Add a recording icon and record your comment.

 

Next you select the individuals you wish to share the feedback with and choose if you wish to send them an email or the Doc comments

 

When you go into the document and click on Comments you are asked to visit ANOTHER!!! link to see th work you have done (Not so good as I though it would be embedded in the original document

 

Says it works for offline resources too.

 

Limited in that you cannot seem to select MORE THAN ONE recipient at a time to see the feedback.

 

It might grow on me or iron out some of these issues or maybe I am not using it right?

Brainrush have just added a "bucket" template to their list of quiz generators (now numbering two).

 

You can have 2 (or more) labeled buckets. Players drag and drop text, image and/or audio into the correct bucket.

 

Super for categorisation tasks eg food groups, rock types or parts of speech etc. Lots of Science opportunities and I bet some MFL ones too.

 

Here is one I made earlier or GCSE Physics Radiation

UPDATE: BrainRush have removed the need to create an account to play. You do go through a warning message but nothing else - hurrah!

WordItOut - Generate word clouds

WordItOut - Generate word clouds | Useful IT tools for Teachers | Scoop.it
Word clouds are a fun way to show words, where the most important ones are bigger than the others.

 

I may be so bold to say that this is much better than Wordle. You can save the Word Cloud as long as you have an email address. Once saved you can then download it as a decent sized image (advantage 1 over Wordle). You can also embed the word cloud (advantage 2).

 

All word clouds have a fairly discrete tag on the bottom right corner.

Simple mindmap maker. No real thrills. Need to sign on but accepts Google accounts. Very easy to use and share with other users. Also embeds via iframe on Mahara. Thanks to Charlie @parapallearning
