Discovery Education Web2014 : Web 2.0 Tools - Presentation Tools - 1 views

    • jsanchezhadfield
       
      I really like the capability of combining programs like Notebook or smartboard, power point, PDF's or prezi into a one compatible platform.
  • Break out of the box! Prezi.com throws the slide-show model out the window and presents a giant canvas instead. (It also throws paint brushes out the window in favor of bubbles.)
    • jsanchezhadfield
       
      I use Prezi almost daily and the results are amazing. My students get glued to the screen and hopefully to more knowledge. The best part is that you can browse for hundreds if not thousands of Prezi presentation shared around the world

    Show, don't tell

    Web 2.0 brings a whole new dimension to the old adage "show, don't tell"—and lets you share your presentations anytime, anywhere, with anyone you like.

    With Web 2.0 you can push the boundaries of traditional presentations, mix things up, and make learning more engaging than ever before.

      I actually have used Prezi for some classroom presentations; I find it gives presenting a bit more dimension and interest...and frankly, it's fun! I've gotten several of my students to use it, when they didn't have Power Point. It's really a great free tool.

      Prezi creates presentations that are out of this world, literally! Imagine being able to present your findings on the solar system -- not by following a linear, slide by slide structure, but instead following the structure of planets orbiting the sun! This "3d presentation tool" rocks!

I've checked out the credentials of a few board members and the organization seems to be a solid one. Two initiatives are of particular interest to me: Badging & learning and Collect curate carry forward.

  • Create real-time survey experiences at events using your mobile device. It's fun, fast and an easy way to get live responses in any venue.

      I used this one during a parent night to get feedback about couple of initiatives that we wanted to implement in our school. It was amazing to see everybody pull out all their gadgets (I have never seeing such a gigantic display) and participate. They loved to see the live feed on the changes of the different responses.

    Making a call is low on the list of features of cell phones these days. Check out new ways to go mobile, beyond texting and sharing images.

      Poll Everywhere is a great tool! I have used this in class for both academics and for a bit of fun! Students really enjoy it; if someone doesn't have a cell phone or text capability, I have them pair up with someone that does, and they work together to answer the question(s). Lisa
  •  
    Since mobile devices seem to be a way of life, jott.com looks like something that may keep everything organized in one space! For me, a GREAT idea! I know my phone has great capabilities, but jott seems to have it all in one place!

    I have used PollEveryWhere.com in my classroom and students love it! It can used for check-ups on information, or just for a bit of fun. If a student doesn't have a cell phone or text capability, I have them pair up in the classroom with someone who does so they can work together.

Discovery Education Web2014 : Web 2.0 Tools - Community - 2 views

  • Community Tools

    Community-building and collaboration are two defining aspects of Web 2.0. A range of tools enable teachers and students to communicate, collaborate and share work.

    Some, like Edmodo, are designed specifically for educators. This Twitter-like tool lets you create custom mini-communities for classes, clubs, parents, etc and push out assignments, reminders and updates. Others, like GoogleDocs, are for general use but conducive to inter- and intra-school collaboration—in real time. All are easy to use. Case in point: a wiki—the Hawaiian word for "quick"—can be set up in 5 minutes!

    I found these suggestions for community tools to be very helpful. Some are already being utilized in my classroom (google docs), but others would be a great addition!
  •  
    Using Web 2.0 and the tools presented can be implemented into the classroom. Students and teachers will share technology in the workings of educational learning. These rules from Web 2.0 will become very useful when using lectures, worksheets, and online educational goals.

  • you can just enter a web address. The "autocite" often will cite your source from that URL.
  • ou can cite a book by searching by title, ISBN, or keywords
  • Students create notecards on this site and are able to color code them, group them, and move them with ease as they work with the cards. They can then drag the cards over to a special place that turns the notecards into an outline for their paper

    I have used multiple bibliography managers that import citations from journal articles, but this looks like a great way to import citations for books!
