Create Your Own eBooks - Richard Byrne Yudu is a free service that allows you to upload PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files to create online magazines. The page turning effect and the zoom options are all built into the technology of Yudu and automatically activated. When your Yudu online magazine is created you can embed it into a blog, wiki, or website. The only drawback to Yudu is that the download option can be hard to find when viewing a document full screen and the download file is a zip file which is a turn-off for some people. Issuu, like Yudu, offers the option to display your documents with page-turning effects. Evaluar por competencias con Google Apps No cabe la menor duda que hacer las cosas de forma diferente a cómo lo hemos estado haciendo durante mucho tiempo supone un esfuerzo. Los tiempos han cambiado y hay que dar paso a las metodologías docentes activas para mejorar el proceso de aprendizaje de nuestros alumnos. En la implantación de estas nuevas metodologías, el proceso de evaluación pasa a jugar un papel muy importante: ya no sólo evaluamos conocimientos, evaluamos también competencias; y el fin de la evaluación no es el de "clasificar" a nuestros alumnos sino el de guiarles en el aprendizaje, medir su evolución y sobre todos enseñarles a "aprender a aprender" apoyándonos en los procesos de autoevaluación y coevaluación.

Speciallärarna har också fått en genomgång av vilka appar som de inte får missa att göra reklam för. Deeper Learning: Performance Assessment and Authentic Audience In a conversation with a veteran educator -- a man with years of experience teaching English and acting as a headmaster -- I was confronted with a prejudice so ingrained in my teaching that I was almost embarrassed to admit it. He said, "You know, when I ask a student to write a paper and turn it in to me, that's ridiculous; I'm the worst audience they could have." I was intrigued. He went on, "Who am I to assume that someone will want to write their best work, something truly personal and creative, for me? A single-person audience is a pretty lame audience, let alone the fact that I'm a middle-aged white guy." That hit me like a rolled-up newspaper.
