IPAD and Concept Board (now integrated within Google Drive) for mobile collaboration
This week I was notified that Concept Board had been integrated within Google Drive. I wanted to explore the potential of this integration within the classroom (although the next step if for collaborative learning outside of the classroom). On a basic level some of the features are similar to Prezi in that you have a blank canvas to collaborate whether that be designing processes, capturing ideas, or simply making notes. You can upload a range of existing documents *.pdf *.doc *.ppt etc, take screen shots, and add directional arrows and shapes with ease. Using a style can also enhance some of the other available tools such as the fine liner pen especially if you have large fingers! There is lots of potential for this especially for group activities both in and outside the classroom.
