This week’s summary is a guest post by my co-moderator from the technology integration chat, Cathy!
How do you use media?
Do you Glog, Voicethread, Animoto, Skype or Prezi? Tonight’s chat-ters discussed learning to using the multimedia tools you ask your students to use, and wondered how to use Google Apps and other resources with students under 13.Is YouTube blocked at your school? Try Vimeo or Teachertube! Alternatives to PowerPoint? try Prezi! What about Voki? Thank goodness most apps make embedding user friendly. And in as little as 5 minutes, with tools like Flip cameras and iPads, students of all ages can become video creators-engaging, empowering, exciting!
For my friend Amber Teamann, here’s the link to tonight’s #tichat archive:
