Already nominated for best humorous video review of academics' use of social media in 2016, treat yourself to half an hour in the company of +Andrew Tattersall's "The weird and wonderful world of academics on the web".

New Google Sites is here and it's going to make it much easier for staff and students to make usable, responsive, attractive websites. Integration with other Google services is excellent (maps, docs, forms, youtube, sheets, slides etc.).

Here's one I made in about 5 minutes.

Yes +Fergus Conolly it is very pedantic and fiddly to set up but YES, I was just thinking that students could probably just create their own site now that is MUCH easier to use and give them a little more creative license in how it looks...mmm...I'll consider this more for next year because no doubt Google at some point will just switch over and make the new sites the default.

How are people projecting from iPads in teaching rooms?

We have a presentation showing microscope slides where pinch to zoom etc would be very advantageous.

Anyone using Microsoft Sway? Geared towards site-as-presentation, it sits between Slides and Sites. Would be good for students to present work combining text, images, photos, videos etc. Share options are nobody or whole world.

Very responsive. Nice app for iOS and I imagine Android and Windows. Integration with image/vid search. Image search allows filtering to Creative Commons licensed. Here's one I made earlier:


Sway is an easy-to-use digital storytelling app for creating interactive reports, presentations, personal stories and more. Its built-in design engine helps you create professional designs in minutes. With Sway, your images, text, videos, and other multimedia all flow together in a way that enhances your story. Sway makes sure your creations look great on any screen.

"Padlet's lack of imposed structure or order helped us find surprising and unexpected relationships between different sources, documents and digital objects". Interesting read:
 
Great to read what Sussex Uni academics are doing with +Padlet

The Wayback Machine has funding to rebuild the internet archive and to add keyword indexing of home pages. It's always a popular site on my search workshops and people often ask if keyword searching is possible. It will be!

Preferred screencasting software for teachers? Looking for something that's easy to use, good quality, stable, allows upload to YouTube and free. Any suggestions?

Well there might be some possibilities with the digital media hosting project - many of these solutions come with content generation tools included, and whilst it wasn't the original brief of the project, this discussion shows that there might be a case for this kind of tool.
