Cartoon Craze!

I had the privilege of visiting Trudi Perkin’s RILS exercise on Educator Studio, as well as her blog page, and let me say, I LOVED IT! I took some time to look through all of her material, and explored the tools she used at www.bitstripsforschools.com, and I was very impressed with how she put together this exercise. Please visit her blog to view my comments on her RILS process. It was a great idea and I think Trudi did a wonderful job with it!

QR Code Craziness!

This QR Code will actually take you to my comment on the blog! Cool huh?

QR codes are very cool bar-code type images that you can scan with your smartphone and they will take you just about anywhere. The coolest thing about them is that anyone can generate them. Jamie Baker took this concept and ran with it in her RILS exercise, which she used to explore their usage in sharing student knowledge with one another, among other things. You can view my comments on her awesome RILS exercise here!

Also, for those interested, here is a link to a free QR code generator!

I was checking out Mark’s blog and reading his review of a site, Erly.com, which allows you to create and post events in a way similar to a photo album. What makes the site unique is that you can log in to this site, then link your photos from almost any social media network, and post them to a large, shared event. His suggested uses were for his students to post photos from their field trips! I think that’s an awesome idea, and I think it could be taken even further too! To check it out, click here!

Beyond the Erly review, I also strolled over to Valerie’s page and took a look at her review for the PowToon site! PowToon is geared toward a business model for presentations. That being said, Valerie mentions that it appears that educational presentations were an afterthought of the product. After watching her video produced in the software, I liked some of the ideas, but also had some reservations about the program. Click here to read more.
