Digital Learning Day is coming up soon – March 13, to be exact. California PBS station KQED has assembled a collection of short professional development videos that help you learn the basics for how to use free online tools for teaching and learning. These tools can be incorporated into the classroom to convey information visually, make persuasive arguments and allow for a variety of collaborative opportunities.
The wide-ranging collection includes videos on how to read and write using the web-based platform Medium, how to make interactive mashups using the smartphone app Pop and how to make an Infographic with Easel.ly. You’ll even learn how to make animated GIFs, funny memes about issues that matter and how to save streaming videos for offline use! EXPLORE: http://to.pbs.org/1LZk36L
