3 Presentation Tools Teachers Are Now Using

3 Presentation Tools Teachers Are Now Using
Presentations are more than just Powerpoint or Keynote. While those tools will get the presentation-making job done, there are definitely better options out there, especially for classroom applications, where you’re more likely to use all of the multimedia capabilities than someone showing revenue slides in a business meeting. The most obvious use for a great presentation tool in your classroom is for presenting material to your class. As the teacher, you can keep your ideas organized and your class on track regardless of where the discussion goes (just don’t forget to get back to your presentation!). The multimedia aspect will get your students more engaged than with just a lecture. We’ve put together a short list of some of our favorite presentation tools. Haiku Deck Haiku Deck is a free app that lets users create presentations using professionally designed themes. Projeqt Google Presentations We know that we don’t need to sell you on using Google’s tools. Related:  Undervisning med hjälp av programIPAD Icab

Those apps that will assist us in the everyday little jobs that need to be done, often on the run and often while 10 other things are also happening in the room.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: iPad Apps for Multiple intelligences A couple of months ago I read a great book by Howard Gardner called Multiple Intelligences: New Horizons in Theory and Practice . The book paves the way for a new theory set forth by Howard where he distinguishes between nine kinds of intelligences. Understanding the different types of intelligences will definitely help teachers tap into the real potential of their students. Here is an overview of these intelligences : learning through the spoken and written word. learning through reasoning and problem solving. learning through interaction with one's environment. learning through patterns, rhythms and music. learning through feelings, values and attitudes. learning through interaction with others. learning through classification, categories and hierarchies. learning by seeing the "big picture": "Why are we here?" 9- VISUAL/SPATIAL learning visually and organizing ideas spatially.

Remarkable WordCloud Apps for iPad We have been loyal fans of web-based Word Cloud creators, such as Wordle, plus the astoundingly versatile Tagxedo site, and we have featured examples of how word clouds can be used as creative learning tools, or as a stimulus for writing, classroom display, or text analysis.

Wikis for Everyone - Wikispaces Socrative and Success Criteria | EdTechSchool I’ve often considered Socrative to be the gateway drug to the world of educational technology for classroom practitioners. It is simple, reliable, and gives you a great resource to judge student progress. You can provide students with instant feedback and you can leave your classes with some readily analysed data and feedback that can inform your planning. If you’re not familiar with Socrative, it is a digital assessment for learning (AfL) tool. But you’re not transforming learning! Now…I hear the cynics ask, how is ‘Socrative’ better than mini-whiteboards or voting cards? At this point, I wish to stress that, I haven’t removed mini-whiteboards from my classroom. But, where Socrative has really worked for me is in recording data that I need to examine later and, as I will discuss below, by providing the most efficient way to give students ownership over success criteria in their learning. Giving Students Ownership of Success Criteria The solution - Socrative So take the plunge! by
