Love the phrase I read today…”Video is the new Power Point”….and I so agree! One of my favorite lines from Grey’s Anatomy that I use ALL the time is “Power Point is SO 1997.” Makes me chuckle every time, 🙂
Luckily, the days of yesteryear are gone, where it takes an expert, or an army, or a week to make something happen with a camcorder. Many digital cameras have a “movie” button and now we have the newest “toy”, er, “tool” in education…the flip camera. I’ve blogged about the flip camera before but think that many teachers still struggle with its place in the classroom. Here are THREE high quality, new and improved, and value sized links that can give YOU even more ideas.
My Luna Lions, I would LOVE to include some videos from YOUR classroom for the campus website. Let me know if you are doing something interesting, informational, or just want to fire up your students…I’ll be your personal videographer!
- FortyWays – This GoogleDoc presents in a visual format forty different ways to use a Flip Camera in the classroom. Some good ideas and certainly some that can be adapted for all age levels and abilities.
- FlipVideo – A wiki dedicated to the use of Flip Cameras in education and moderated byChris Bell. It has sample videos, ideas for Flip accessories, and links to some ‘workshops’ including Digital Storytelling, Video Podcasting, and an introduction to the Flip camera. A good place to start and find some ideas for your classroom.
- Video In the Classroom is a site all about using (surprisingly enough) Video in the Classroom, 🙂
