Digital Literacies: Using Audacity for pupil radio dramas with sound effects Creating a radio drama using sound effects, Audacity and pupil scripts. One of the favourite activities this year was script writing for an authentic audience. This year we decided to try our hand at creating short radio dramas. I introduced the class to some classic (edited) radio dramas such as Superman and Sam Spade. We discussed in our groups what the purpose of the scripts were in our context, how they were related (connections)to our English and Inquiry topics, what we liked about the dramas we heard, what made them interesting, who would be the audience in the 1940's & 50's as well as what other events were part of the context at the time. We then broke up into our teams for a brainstorming session on what the plot, characters, etc. would be for our own dramas. For example, one group needed someone walking. For some groups, who needed several sound effects, the task was more onerous and included such clips as explosions, helicopters, children playing and someone with hiccups.

Premailer: pre-flight for HTML email Kathy Shrock's Guide August 7, 2012 To all my educator colleagues: As you all know, I retired in June of 2011 from my school district job as Director of Technology. I retired to spend more time learning new things to support you as you embed technology into teaching and learning in a meaningful way. Since I started the Schrockguide in June of 1995, a lot has changed. However, I am not retired from providing you with great resources and ideas to support teaching and learning! I have moved all the support information for my presentations over to Kathy Schrock's Guide to Everything, located here, to help you as you think about the practical and pedagogical uses of technology. I also have my personal blog, Kathy Schrock's Kaffeeklatsch, at where I post gadget reviews and information as well as my other thoughts. I hope to hear from you via the new sites I am now creating. Kathy

Ten Twitter Tips for Teachers I’m a massive fan of Twitter. I have personally found it to be the best source of new ideas and tips out there, and it’s free! It can take time to build up a decent sized network, but once you follow enough people then you begin to see the benefits. I’ve written a short guide to Twitter for Teachers before, but I’ve updated some of the ideas and added a few more things that you can do to make your Twitter experience much more useful. 1. Twitter is all about following people. Once you follow a few people – look at their twitter pages and see who they talk to, or who they follow. Also – take a look at the “Who to Follow” page which will suggest other followers based on who you follow. Hopefully, those people you follow will also follow you back. 2. Whenever I get a new follower I check on their Twitter account to see if they are worth following back, or whether they are an automated spam bot. 3. Hashtags are short codes used to help keep information on similar topics organised on Twitter.

Twitter, réseau social élitiste? » Article » OWNI, Digital Journalism Twitter ne sera jamais grand public, tant son usage semble réservé à une élite. Le réseau de microblogging serait-il trop compliqué à configurer? La simplicité du principe et son extrême modularité font de Twitter l’outil de communication le plus personnalisable et le réseau social le plus puissant qui soit. Une nouvelle étude d’Exact Target parue le 9 août 2010 montre que les utilisateurs quotidiens de Twitter sont aussi les plus actifs sur Internet. • 72% publient sur leur blog au moins une fois par mois • 70% commentent sur d’autres blogs • 61% écrivent au moins une note produit par mois • 61% commentent sur des sites d’info • 56% écrivent des articles pour des sites tiers • 53% postent des vidéos • 50% contribuent aux wikis Ces hyper-actifs ont trois fois plus de chances de charger des photos, quatre fois plus de chances de tenir un blog, et trois fois plus de chances de partager des notes et des critiques que l’utilisateur moyen d’Internet . Twitter : le lego de l’égo
