Intro to the SAMR Model using Symbaloo

"And we don’t introduce a single subject app. Instead we focus on the amazing range of consumption, curation, and creativity possible across grade levels and subjects using only four general apps: an annotation app, a screencasting app, an audio creation app, and a video creation app. In our workshops conversations about pedagogy center the iPad properly as an effective learning device. The content comes from a wide range of materials available across the Web and in our classrooms, not from apps." from 5 Critical Mistakes Schools Make With iPads

Nearpod is an interactive presentation and assessment tool that can be used to amazing effect in the classroom. The app’s concept is simple. A teacher can create presentations that can contain Quiz’s, Polls, Videos, Images, Drawing-Boards, Web Content and so on. The children can access a teacher’s presentation through a code. It is up to the teacher to then move the class through the presentation and let them interact with the media as they go.

Thinglink: image/video upside down
The company was contacted and here is the solution:
The rotated image is most common with images uploaded from a mobile device (phone or tablet). The tablet sometimes auto rotates the images to the proper orientation but on ThingLink, the original orientation is used. This was resolved by saving the image to the desktop computer and saving the correctly oriented file and then re-uploading.
