10 razones para elegir Sway como herramienta de creación de contenido en el aula

La innovación en el ámbito educativo no se puede limitar a introducir las TIC para que el alumnado utilice alguna presentación digital creada por un profesor. Si queremos ir un paso más allá, debemos dejar de favorecer el aprendizaje pasivo. El alumno tiene que dejar de ser copiloto, para ser el conductor y coger las riendas de su aprendizaje.

Tradicionalmente, cuando un alumno no sabía algo, preguntaba a sus padres y/o maestros. Sin embargo, actualmente les resulta mucho más rápido y fácil echar mano de su teléfono móvil y buscar en internet.… Visit the author's original post

Microsoft Mix – hands on

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know I am a big fan of TechSmith Camtasia, and this is my normal go to when recording video content.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a microphone for audio quality.

I’ve been making “flipped classroom” videos for a couple of years now.

This was a result of mutual trust that will built up over the course of the year – quite a memorable class and year for me.
