1. I chose to create a Stupeflix video. See it here.
2. I also created a Prezi that teachers can use with students on how to unlock a locker.
3. Teachers could use these tools to present content to students. Students could use the tools to demonstrate understanding.
1. I created a Google Doc to create the Beginning of the Year meeting agenda to collaborate with other administrators and staff members.
2. I created a Google Form for a Staff Survey.
3. Accustomed to using MS Word, I found Google Docs to be limited in formating. I really like the idea that several people can collaborate and work on a common document. I plan on using this feature this year. I thought that creating a form was easy. I think that by using using the Google Documents and Forms that we can greatly cut back on the amount of paper that is used on campus.
1. I've always been a fan of Discovery Education. They have many videos that fit our curriculum.
I also like Teacher Tube and School Tube.
2. Video hosting/streaming sites
Steve Jobs' commencement address to the graduating class at Stanford University.
How teachers can use videos in lessons.
The case for multimedia.
3. I still find the copywrite information confusing. I did find the information from the Playing with Media article helpful, although I would have to review it while working on projects. I think it's always been assumed that copywrite protected items used for educational use. I'm not certain that we have historically done a good job of teaching copywrite to teachers and students.
4. Dropbox could be used for teachers and students to share documents and resources.
I found myself spending a lot more time on Tool #2 than I had expected. I got caught up on a lot of the blogs, reading and sharing about ideas and opinions. It seems that you can find an educational blog on just about any topic.
