Continued from last month...
10. Here's an addition to using Twitter in the classroom
that I found. I admit I'm not using Twitter very much, but many teachers are and are having success with some of these applications in the classroom.
11. Open Broadcast Software - Are you making your own instructional videos? One of our technology teachers turned me on to OBS
for making videos and inserting content into the videos. This works especially well for screen-casting.
12. Are you using online content but some of your students don't have Internet access at home or (for high schools) time in their schedule to use a media center? The Pocket application, for both Android and Apple, allows users to download articles, videos, and more for later viewing offline. Available from the Chrome web store
and Apple store
13. If you liked last month's issue on Ed.Ted, you'll like this app as well. EDpuzzle
allows users to add videos, edit video length, add narrations and audio notes, and insert questions. Unlike Ed.Ted, EDpuzzle allows you to insert videos from YouTube, Ed.Ted, Khan Academy, NatGeo, Numberphile, Vimeo, TeacherTube and others. Here's an example
created by out building technology person.
Next month I will take a break from sharing tech ideas and start a series on using scopes to teach basic concepts with electricity and engine performance.
More to come next month.
