Webinar on Tuesday
Please join me and Simple K12 for a webinar to explore the integrated writing and research tools available in Google Docs to help students improve writing skills.
@ICTEvangelist has created an interactive Wallwisher board of sticky notes today on a hot topic, iPad apps for Edu. This is a great chance for educators to collaborate and quickly collect valuable resources. Please join in and create a note on the embedded wall below or for a better experience please visit the wall itself.
It appears as though Wallwisher is trying to change it’s name to Padlet. Good luck!
What’s your favourite iPad app 4 Edu & why?
Visualead is a free and user friendly tool for generating colorful QR codes in three simple steps.
1. Uppload an image.
2. Drag the slider over the image.
3. Click lick a button to generate the embed code.
Visualead is integrated with many popular social networking tools which allows you to create a QR code to suit your needs.
Here is an example of a QR code created with the free version of Visualead. This was designed to help training participants quickly jump to my Digital Differentiation interactive page.
