Webinar: Video in the Classroom

Not wanting to head into vacation with recording my webinar from the week looming over my head, here is my video from this week! I did it in only one take, much like I recommending during the workshop, and I know I flubbed some of it. But I'm human!
Creating videos is perfect for flipping the classroom or just providing your students with materials if they aren't in class. Better yet, get used to doing it yourself and then flip the roles and have your students create the videos explaining how they do a task, reviewing a chemical reaction, or complete a math problem. It will help them to achieve a higher level of understanding since they can't just regurgitate what you've said. And you can build a bank of videos to use year after year instead of having to reinvent the wheel all the time.

Check out my screencast, below, and be sure to go over to my other website to navigate through the presentation at your own pace and click on the links I have to each of the tools I talk about.

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
