Storycaching - 0 views

    Main Menu Home Articles Submit Article Google Gadgets Site Search Contact Us spacer.png, 0 kB Home arrow Articles arrow Storycaching Storycaching PDF Print E-mail The premise of Storycaching is to combine the use of a GPS with an iPod where a user goes to a specific place using map coordinates, then listens to a podcast (audio on demand), usually a story, that takes into account the nature of the area where the listener is now located. Like geocaching, a cache may be located at the site and can contain some relevant objects that add a physical dimension or symbolism to the cached story. Storycaching is designed to enhance the experience of both the storyteller and the listener. By allowing the storyteller to reference elements in the environment where the listener is located, the listener is provided a third dimension to the story, that of authentic physical feelings and sensory input. Storycaching is a concept created by Dr. Martin Horejsi at The University of Montana-Missoula. For example, a girl walks to a distinctive place in order to listen to a story on her iPod. Using map coordinates and a GPS, she climbs part way up a hill on the edge of town. When arriving at a specific spot according to the GPS, she locates a small box containing some relics. Sitting on a rock, she holds the objects in her hand listens to a sound file on her iPod. Overlooking the valley, the power of the Native American elder's words stir her emotions as landmarks, smells, the wind, and other sounds are referenced in the story, all possible because the person telling the story knows that the listener will be in a specific place while listening to the story. Or maybe, the story was recorded years ago when the elder sat in the very spot where the young girl now sits. A connection with the story is forged in a way never before experienced alone. Another example is where a high school student studying earth science walks through a river drainage with his teacher. But his teache

Kleinspiration: Tons of Classroom Examples Using Augmented Reality with @Aurasma - A Complete How-To Guide! - 27 views

  •  
    "Augmented reality allows someone to add another layer to an existing image. For example, imagine holding your phone over a poster on the wall as if you were going to take a photo of that poster, and then instantly a video starts playing to offer you additional information about that particular poster. Pretty cool, right? The first time it happens, it seems like magic."

TileStack - Your Creative Playground - 0 views

  •  
    A Simple Idea TileStack is a simple idea with endless potential. We asked ourselves, "What if it were possible for kids, teachers, hobbyists and even small businesses to quickly learn how to create interactive slides, games, applications and more?" Imagine the possibilities when everyone, not just the computer geeks, have the know-how. Give them a community where they can come together, share ideas, learn by example and improve the creations of one another. And encourage them to share and publish what they make, so everyone can enjoy it.

Diigo Blog » Diigo Lists vs. Google Notebook - 0 views

  •  
    1. Google Notebook is very much similar to Diigo Lists. In Diigo Lists, you can organize, share and display specific collections of bookmarks. Once you add bookmarks to your list, you can easily re-arrange the collections by drag-and-drop, and add "section". And you can publish a Diigo list as an HTML document. 2. In Diigo, an item in a list is also saved separately as a bookmark (which can be tagged). So in this sense, Diigo integrates both Google Notebook and Google Bookmark. 3. Diigo also has the important advantage that "clippings" are really "highlights" on the original web pages and will be shown as such when you re-visit the web pages, reminding you the exact context of the clippings. 4. Another unique Diigo list feature: once you create a list, click the " WebSlides" button, you can browse, play and annotate any list of URLs as a slide show! It's great for content browsing, sharing, and creating unique presentations based on web content.Here is an example of a Diigo List, consisting of recent reviews of Diigo, and watch the Diigo List / WebSlides in action! 5. Google Notebook is a bit more flexible in that an item does not have to be tied to a webpage. Diigo Lists will soon be upgraded to provide this flexibility and a lot more in the near future.
