For teachers - some digital tools for presentations

From now on I'll post some information for teachers who want to become more "digital".
There are plenty of apps and tools that can help our didactics, but it takes a lot of time to try all of them to see how they work.
So I will try some of them for you showing you the final result. I'll create quick and very simple examples. That way it should be easier  to choose what tool is appropriate for you and which is not.

If you want to prepare some attractive presentations (besides PowerPoint), you can use the followin tools:
The first tool I tried is Powtoon
http://www.powtoon.com

It's a very funny way to create presentations!This is what I've done for you

Then I tried Glogster
http://www.glogster.com/
You can create digital posters with images, videos and audio files . Very interesting! Students could also create some glogs for homework! This is my example.

This one is a very very simple tool, Aiku Deck. You can create slide shows to combine ideas with images.

This is my short example.

POWER UP YOUR TEACHING!

That's all for now, see you soon with some other tools!
