Mapping del.icio.us with Anthracite and OmniGraffle Several people have asked me how I produced the visualizations that I used in my talk on del.icio.us. While those visualizations were constructed with a rather eclectic mixture of homebrewed code, assorted applications, and a good bit of elbow grease, I decided to put together a tutorial for people who might be interested in this type of visual exploration, but are not inclined to write custom Perl code to do so. Hence, I have selected a combination of two very nice applications for Mac OS X - Anthracite and OmniGraffle - to produce similar visualizations. Neither application is free, but both have free trial periods, should you be inclined to check them out.
Bring the excitement of real-time gaming to your classroom Today we’ve launched a brand new feature on Quizalize – the Team Game feature. The Team Game view can be shown on your interactive whiteboard, so students can see their progress in real time and your quiz becomes an exciting multi-player game. At Zzish we believe that educational applications should be both effective and engaging teaching tools. The Team Game view has been carefully designed in collaboration with leading educators to ensure that students of all abilities find it fun and motivating. As students play a quiz, their progress is shown by their name moving closer to the finish line in the centre of the screen. It doesn’t matter if they get the answer wrong or right - each time a student answers a question their name will move one step closer to the finish line.
