Android-Geräte spiegeln mit Vysor. Im medienpädagogischen Bereich gibt es viele Gründe, den Bildschirm eines Smartphones oder Tablets auf einer Leinwand zeigen zu wollen, sei es für Tutorials oder Smartphone-Events. Meiner Meinung nach haben die Apple Geräte hier eindeutig die Nase vorne, funktionieren doch alle Geräte mit dem einheitlichen Lightning-HDMI / VGA Adapter.

Dieser einheitliche Standard fehlt leider bei Android, kein Wunder, stecken hinter den Geräten ja zahlreiche Hersteller. Diese Tatsache bringt mir aber beispielsweise bei einer Smartphone-Schule für Senioren wenig, wenn 95% der Anwesenden Android-Geräte haben. Mit schnurlosen Lösungen wie Miracast oder Chromecast habe weniger gute Erfahrungen gemacht, bricht doch hier recht oft die Verbindung ab. Seit kurzem benutze ich nun die kostenlose App Vysor, um mein Android Smartphone zu spiegeln. Vysor ist eine Chrome-Erweiterung, was bedeutet, dass ein betriebssystemübergreifender Einsatz (Windows, Mac, Linux) möglich ist. A Wonderful Tool to Help Students Easily Design Their Own Games.

Create Stop Motion Animations with KomaKoma. This is a guest post from Kate Wilson (@katewilson13) of EdTechTeacher, an advertiser on this site. Stop Motion was one of the original video creation techniques. By stringing together a series of single images and displaying them quickly in order, film was born. Now on iPad, Stop Motion can be used as a technique for capturing learning as it happens, making drawings, models, science projects, or counting exercises come alive. Consider the power of creating a digital flipbook that could later be viewed as a video. KomaKoma is a FREE Stop Motion iPad App that can compile together a series of photos taken in the app and then export them to the Camera Roll as a video.

With a simple user interface consisting of only a few buttons, KomaKoma is very intuitive. The app launches the camera automatically (first time app users will have to allow the Camera access).

Parts of this post originally appeared on one of my other blogs, PicCollage is one of my favorite apps for creating multimedia collages on my iPad.

Creating those collages is a great way to visually summarize a trip, to tell a story, or showcase the highlights of research. I’ve shown PicCollage to hundreds of teachers over the last couple of years. The only complaint I’ve heard about it is that there is a public gallery of collages. I just discovered this morning that PicCollage for Kids removes that gallery. PicCollage for Kids also removes all social media connections to the app. One of my favorite ways to enhance PicCollage projects is to use ThingLink to make the collages interactive.
