Apps to Use as Student ePortfolios. I have yet to find the perfect Digital Portfolio app that I think I would use exclusively in a Visual Arts class.
Some apps can be used as graphic portfolios or as beautiful sketchbooks, others are great at sharing. Not all of the apps available are great at all of these things. I have spent a heap of time trying to find one and would be more than happy for someone to send me the name of one they are using successfully. Having said that the following are apps that I would consider using; Evernote: FREE Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Paper: FREE Paper is an easy and beautiful way to create on iPad. Three Ring: FREE Three Ring is a fast, flexible, and simple way to organize and present your students' real world work, from handwritten assignments to classroom presentations. Coolibah: FREE Coolibah is a digital scrapbooking app that could just as easily be used to present student's work as a digital portfolio.
A List of 20 Free Tools for Teachers to Create Awesome Presentations and Slideshows. Creating presentations and slideshows is one of the needed skills for both teachers and students.
Unfortunately many teachers still find it hard to arrange data into a catchy slideshow to share with students. Below is a list of some of the best free tools teachers and students can use to create awesome slideshow and presentations. I have already reviewed all of these tools and therefore attest to their usability. 1- SlideShare It Offers users the ability to upload and share publicly or privately PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and Adobe PDF Portfolios. 2- Animoto Animoto turns your photos and video clips into professional video slideshows in minutes. VUVOX allows you to create interactive slideshows and presentations from photos, video and music from Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, YouTube, Facebook and more. 4- Knovio 5- Ahead. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Present.me is SlideShare Meets YouTube. Have you ever wondered what would happen if SlideShare and YouTube got hitched and had a child together?
If you answered ‘yes’ to that, I’m a little concerned. But if that question has stirred your curiosity, let me introduce you to Present.me. Present.me lets individuals, groups, organisations…anyone…combine online presentations with video, and make them viewable ‘on demand’. “Imagine for a second you were with me in a room right now,” ponders co-founder Richard Garnett,” and I was your teacher, with some maths maybe.
Or your lawyer with a contract, or your architect with some plans. Garnett’s pitch sets the tone rather nicely for what Present.me is all about. Indeed, whilst services such as WebEx and Skype facilitate virtual presentations, the presenter and presentee need to be available at the same time. How it works… Needless to say, Present.me can be used in just about any industry where presentations are used – for sales, training, HR, Education…you name it. Creative Commons.
