Show what you have – Canva

Canva is your go to tool when you want to design something printed or published in the web. It provides Apps for desktops and handhelds with slightly different functions and a full blown web app.

Regardless of which tool you use – you start with a blank canvas in your desired format and get all you need to design a pleasant product. You can choose from uncountable templates, elements, stock-photos, styles, text-formats if you have a paid or sponsored subscription (or from much less with a free account) or you can upload your own elements and put it together.

Canva has some basic tools, that help you getting your poster straight, like aligning elements or colour-picking. However, it’s focus lies on ease of use and the provision of free or paid-for elements, that you can use for your product (and don’t need to right-check before publishing it).

Preserving Results with Google Drive and Padlet

Think of Google Drive as a web storage with built in office programs. As such, it equips you and your students with everything that’s needed for your text or number based works – word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, posters, even surveys – you name it. It integrates much more apps, since it is capable of handling third party apps (try Audacity Online) and it has some unique features in their own apps through plugins.

The best thing, however, is the possibility to work together. If you share a file with other users, they all can open the file at the same time and see what everyone is doing in real time. Thus, you can watch your colleague working on your group assignment while you are just following their cursor and correct the typos. And if someone in a large group of collaborateurs happen to destroy your work, there is a rewind tool, that recovers the state of work on any given time.

Padlet is much less versatile, but it’s an expert in the one thing it does: being an online pinboard. You can very easily create one of different types of pinboards (besides some basic templates, there are maps and even timelines), give it a name easy to remember and share it. There are practical safety-settings so that it is possible to just show your own work to specific users or to let the world collaborate in a joint work (then your coworkers don’t even need to have an account with Padlet).

We used it to just collect and swap some personal profiles with the students from our partner-schools and to plan the events we were responsible for.

Actionbound – Education on the go

Actionbound is an interactive smartphone hunt. With the Actionbound app, you can take part in exciting, fun and informative Bounds. The principle is similar to a classical scavenger hunt or geo-caching, but it also includes media files, internet, and player-created content.

Download the Actionbound app onto your mobile device. It is available for iOS and Android devices.

Multiple Bound players use one smartphone together. They will play as a team to achieve a good result. The optimal group size is three to six Bound players. At least two Bound players are required.

You will need to get to the place on the map and when you are there, there will be a question on your phone screen. Once you answer the question you will get points.

If you answer correctly, you will get points. If not, you won’t. It doesn’t matter how fast you do it, you need to get the correct answers.

If you want to create your own Bound, you will need to log in. Some Bounds might be with a QR – code. With QR – code you need to get to the code, scan it and then the question will appear.

You don’t need internet connection to play the bound because the Bound’s media content will be preloaded. This applies to all content– quests, text, images, videos and sounds uploaded to Actionbound’s media library.
