Screencast-O-Matic - Free online screen recorder for instant screen capture video sharing. - 1 views

    The BEST screen cast tool, in my opinion. I use this a lot to answer student questions in a more engaging manner. Share your screen and do picture in picture so students can see you and your screen at one time. This takes the level of interaction between facilitator and student to new online levels.

PhotoPeach - Photopeach for Education - 2 views

  • The combination of images, music, and text helps students learn about presentation, expression, writing, communication skills, art appreciation, and media literacy. The quality of the finished work is great and students will remember it forever. Start creating fun slideshows with captions, soundtracks, quizzes, and easy editing controls!
    Combines photos, music and text into a slideshow. Good tool to help visualize concepts and more.
    A good tool for instructors or students to teach "how-to" information or informing others about just about any topic, and students can review information wiith added quizzes. Only downside is you have to pay for Photo Peach Classroom Premium to get many of the desired applications like creating multiple student accounts and only the educator being able to delete/change presentations.
    I especially like the quiz feature of this presentation tool. Ease of use and feature richness are what I value in a presentation application.

US DOE Evaluation of Evidence-based Practices - 2 views

    The article Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies is a study undertaken at the behest of the U.S, Department of Education to evaluate online learning practices through a meta-analysis of research. It is intended for policy-makers, administrators and educators to use to make research based decisions on online learning and teacher preparation at the K-12 level. The original plan was to have it completed by 2008, but there were so few rigorous studies available that they waited until 2010 to include more. In a search of the literature from 1994-2008, only 5 studies were found of sufficient rigor to measure effectiveness of online learning in K-12 students. The remaining 43 studies were for older learners, with most content being from the medical or health care field. The lead author, Dr. Barbara Means, directs the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, an independent nonprofit research organization. Her focus is on the relationship between technology, education systems, and student learning. Four research questions were addressed: * How does the effectiveness of online learning compare with that of face-to-face instruction? * Does supplementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction enhance learning? * What practices are associated with more effective online learning? * What conditions influence the effectiveness of online learning? The findings that were most interesting to me were: * Guiding questions provided to discussion groups influence the way students interact, but not the amount they learn. * Learning is enhanced when students can manipulate media or reflect. * Videos do not influence learning more than assigning homework, unless students can manipulate them. * Online quizzes do not influence learning more than homework. * Explicitly taught self-reflection, self-regulation and self

Feedback on Using Prezi? - 6 views

      Incredible! I thought Powerpoint presentations were getting pretty advanced these day, and then I see this! This has many benefits as others have already mentioned, but to add to theirs, this is an great tool to use if you are working in a group and aren't in the same city because it allows you to co-develop a presentation with people in any location.
    amazing tool sent to me by Jason

    I was amazed how easy this site was to improve the whole power point creation process
    Some people love these. Might be useful for delivering content online, in a blended class, or in a flipped f2f class.
    How successful have people found transferring power point presentations to prezis? I am in the process of creating one on European schools of art, and another for an informational parent meeting. So far, it seems like they are much more interesting to follow than traditional power points.
