Meograph: Four-dimensional storytelling

Meograph: Four-dimensional storytelling | Reading Instruction Revolution |

Meograph is the easiest way to create multimedia stories. With no training you can quickly create stories about the news, history, travels, life events, and more by combining video, audio, pictures, text, links, maps, and timelines. Then share by embedding anywhere on the web, or through your favorite social network.

Amy Pardo's insight:

I wonder how this might work for my oral history project.


Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, March 31, 2013 5:11 AM

Ancora uno strumento per creare storie dedicato al mondo educational, lo slogan di Meograph è infatti "riconduci l'apprendimento alla vita reale con le storie". Meograph può essere utilizzato liberamente, esiste un piano di abbonamenti che consente di gestire le proprie classi online e offre altri vantaggi.


Meograph è uno strumento di storytelling, un webware che  di realizzare in modo molto semplice delle storie utilizzando l'intero web come risorsa da cui ricavare testi,k immagini, video, mappe, links, timelines ecc.  Il risultato può essere incorporato in un sito web e/o condiviso nei principali social network.


Risulta molto utile per predisporre presentazioni su argomenti disciplinari e interdisciplinari da parte di docenti e/o studenti su qualsiasi tematica. 


Meograph è utilizzato da molte organizzazioni che si occupano di media e da migliaia di scuole e autori per la realizzazione delle loro storie in quanto è uno strumento molto semplice ma completo per creare materiali multimediali e interattivi

Identify RPS (reversed positioning sensation) in kindergarten or first grade.  Then, by simply changing the handwriting position to the position  that feels the shapes of letters from their top side, and helping these youngsters learn to write the alphabet in 40 seconds, you will find, will correct all sorts of early educatioin difficulties.  These young remediated students will consequently need no more help.

Ex-Atlanta Schools Chief Charged in Cheating Scandal: Who's looking out for our kids?? | Reading Instruction Revolution |
A third-grade teacher’s 2010 choice to aid a state investigator helped lead to the indictment Friday of a former superintendent and 34 others in a vast alleged cheating scheme.

Amy Pardo's insight:

You can't blame high stakes testing for this problem, the blame belongs to the educational professionals that chose to "cheat" their students. 

Lou Salza's curator insight, April 1, 2013 9:54 AM


This story now reads like a murder mystery except that it is sadly non-fiction and the vistims are the nation's school childred. Last year when this story first broke, I blogged about cheating our children by our failure to teaach them to read, our failure to focus on their learning in our classroooms--all aided and abetted by our continued misuse of test data.  Seems like a good time to reprise the blog and invite comment:
