This Lab is all about software and hardware, and how best students could use existing and emerging tools.
So I just began testing out a service called Lino (www.linoit.com) to create a new ‘wall’ to support lessons in my class.
I have used Padlet, but for some reason there is a glitch on the new Windows 8 computers.
The first test is for a class on Book Trailers – a way to combine script writing, and microphone use with creating a promotional ‘trailer’ for a book. This is what it will look like – more student resources will be added.
This could become a lesson in itself, for content gathering and teaching how embed codes work.
Students could ‘curate’ facts, pictures, sounds, music tracks, video and slide decks to support work in social studies, science, math or robotics.
