Playing in the Sandpit – the Outcome

Collage created in fotor

As this was an unconference style workshop session, there is always an element of uncertainty as to how things will pan out. However, it was a great session, with educators from Australia, UK and USA playing and sharing together. You can listen to the recording by clicking on this link.

Here is what it looked like:-

  1. Peggy George (@peggygeorge) shared the app she has created for Classroom2.0LIVE using cleverlize – the app creating program that we learnt about in last week’s session.
  2. An application share revealed the sites that Carole McCulloch had shared as a comment on this webinar posting on the Australia Series blog:- Tools that are collated on the SA eLearning site and Marlene Manto’s blog where the most recent post shared some great sites for MS Powerpoint.
  3. Jo Frei shared some great images from her blog Sprite’s site and Gifted Resources blog
  4. I shared fotor – a collage making online tool, that is free and requires no registration – always a bonus when working with students. Participants were quickly shown the basics and then given 3 mins to create their own collage. A quick demo was given on saving and sharing options. Participants copied their collages onto the whiteboard in Blackboard Collaborate and shared their results – a wonderful diversity of experiences and interests.
  5. Marc Grossman @UKGrossman from UK demonstrated the new look Scratch 2.0
  6. Peggy discussed her attendance at the virtual 4T Conference over the last few days and shared her livebinder for March Classroom2.0 featuring a presenter on Scratch and Stretchinstructor.
  7. Finally people shared some of the collage making tools that they liked using – photoscape, pizap and shape collage, jigsaw maker

About Cleverlize (a promotion by the creators)

Cleverlize develops a solution that enables educators to bring their teaching to
mobile devices. The solution therefore is suitable for all educators recognizing that
their students are consuming more and more content on smartphones and tablets.

Go mobile in 3 simple steps – with Cleverlize creating your own mobile micro
learning content is possible without any programming skills. Just file your content
in the Cleverlize App Editor and choose a custom design. Following the creation of
content as well as adjusting the design you can distribute and (if you want) sell it via
a “one-click” solution. Currently we support iOS and HTML5 but soon there will be
more platforms available.

Multiple interaction formats – Cleverlize’s learning content is interactive
and equipped with multi learning features. These can be simple articles, images
or embedded Youtube videos as well as tests with different question formats, e.g.
multiple choice, matching, sorting or cloze. Or just integrate flashcards to your mobile
learning content.

Access from everywhere and at anytime – publish to the Cleverlize
Marketplace app to offer your students access to your learning content 24/7. It
doesn’t matter where they are. With Cleverlize’s marketplace your contents are even
available offline and on multiple devices (e.g. iPhone or iPad).

It’s just the beginning – the Cleverlize App Editor and its publishing
possibilities are just the first step of a next generation learning experience. Further
versions of Cleverlize will contain intelligent analytics features, gamification templates
and integration of social networks.
