  • Personal NCALT Live! use today Webinar This webinar is designed to show just a few online tools we might consider when creating learning events or interactions irrespective of if they are face to face or online, synchronous or asynchronous, some suit both, some the former, some the latter. Some of them are also suitable for use outside of the classroom, useful for research, networking, collaboration etc. Take you through a Prezi with a brief overview of another 9? tools there will be resources available later for you to experiment and use the tools, the webinar is being recorded and will be made available and there will be one or two other goodies made available, we'll take you through them at the end.
  • Twitter Who uses Twitter? Poll? Hands Up? Share usernames?
  • WHAT Twitter is an online tool that lets you write brief text updates (of up to 140 characters) and broadcast them. People can choose to "follow" your updates (aka "tweets") and you can follow others and receive their tweets.  Microblogging tool 140 characters Images, links Publishes to a flow, follow users, not reciprocal, tweets, mentions, hash tags, DMs
  • WHY Personal Learning Network – the ‘push’ provides content you would not necessarily have searched for Courses – pre, during and post – use hashtag for backchannel – example of eLNIL – 25 people in room 87 500 actually got to ‘see’ the tweets Integration – with Powerpoint, Prezi & Keynote to tweet automatically from the slide notes and display the audiences reaction on a later slide – make your mass presentations interactive in a way that was previously not easy HOW N/A Resources Usernames #SWRLC? How Tos? Twitter in Plain English - – trivial and personal based but transpose it into a work environment to see potential value C4LPT SAP Web Integration Tools
  • Prezi Anyone using Prezi already? Hands Up? WHAT This is a Prezi – flash based Powerpoint alternative – not better than ppt, just different! Online or downloaded, iPad app Desktop app, collaborative element Youtube see below WHY An alternative, impactful HOW Very simple to create – will share resources later Resources What is Prezi? – youtube – I minute 09 - Link – for training!

  • Mindmeister Does anyone mindmap? Which tools? Paper based? In chat…
  • WHAT Real-time collaborative mindmapping, create, manage, share. See changes as they happen or be informed when someone has edited a map you are working on.
  • WHY Brainstorming ideas and projects – I do this all the time but doing it on Mindmeister then inviting edits from your PLN on Twitter blows my desktop maps away HOW Resources
  • Wallwisher Anyone use sticky notes in classroom sessions? Anyone NOT done the sticky note exercise? An essential pain for the trainer to then write them up for sharing later WHAT An online notice board maker, collaborative WHY Brainstorming – perhaps before a mindmap?, feedback HOW Create and share, show the +AddThis option Resources The wall for this -
  • Wordle Wordclouds or tagclouds? WHAT Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like.
  • Useful images that show the focus of a document, can help you see if your document is looking at the important issues, can be used in course posters etc I know of one person who uses it for job applications comparing a Wordle from the job description with one from their application to see if they match! HOW (DEMO) Copy & Paste or upload the url of your text, then edit as required. Can’t save the image but you can enlarge the screenshot! Resources FAQ & Forum from the homepage
  • Voicethread Does anyone share images or video as part of their lessons or sessions? Could you see yourself doing that?

  • WHY Share media and allow comments and questions from your cohort HOW Upload and share! Resources
