“We don’t even know if anyone is listening, 
being alone isn’t a problem
let me just emphasise 
read a book, paint a picture, 
or do some exercise
you’re being productive and present, 
not reserved and recluse” 

Sue Alexander's curator insight, May 5, 2014 9:24 AM

A Comprehensive List of Apps and Tools to Flip your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Comprehensive List of Apps and Tools to Flip your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | WIT eLearning | Scoop.it

"A flipped classroom is sometimes the best teaching/learning model some teachers have to use with  their students. The use of technology in a flipped classroom should never be regarded as a supplicant of the teacher but only a complimentary element that increases students learning outcomes.  I have talked a lot and in more details about the flipped classroom and have also devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning for tutorials, guides, and presentations on the use of a flipped learning methodology."

Adobe visit

Adobe visit | WIT eLearning | Scoop.it
WIT eLearning Support's insight:
I was lucky enough to attend Adobe headquarters in Sydney and had an amazing day. They shared with us information about new and exciting products Adobe is bringing into their suite, some that will form part of the new DEC contract. A few things I found interesting from the day were:* The layout of the Adobe offices was incredible. Apart from the magnificent views of the harbour; workstations were predominantly ‘hot desks’ where each staff member had their own device and docked into a station as and when they needed it. * There are over 17000 device configurations currently available that our staff and students will be using. That is really something to consider when creating an online presence and designing materials to be delivered online. * Mobile, Mobile, Mobile. Adobe is restructuring many of its products to make it easier to create mobile ready content. A couple of the newer ones include Muse which allows you to publish mobile ready websites using a click and drag feature. * It is anticipated that Adobe Connect 9 will be available for use within DEC next year, discussions are still underway about which new features will be purchased under our contract. * TAFE staff still have access to work at home software that can be purchased through Simply International. If you decide to buy a personal subscription to the Adobe Creative cloud solution it is currently being offered for $14.99 per month. This includes cloud storage, use on 2 computers and 5 hosted web sites. * The new version of Adobe Presenter now allows you to • Capture both webcam and screen either together or separately. • Can build in quizzes that (should) play in adobe connect. • The results from quizzes can be fed to the Moodle gradebook. • You can publish your completed resource direct to youtube or vimeo Fe
