      Animoto would be great to use to create visuals for a new topic. I might use this to build background knowledge before reading a non-fiction text.

      Create an avatar - this would be a different way to engage students for a flipped lesson.

      The free account does not look like it gives you that much. I worry about using too much different types of programs and overwhelming the students.

  • Zero to Eight is a nationally representative survey of parents of U.S. children ages zero to eight, conducted to understand the patterns of media use among young American children. Covering TV, other video, reading, music, computers, video games, and mobile digital devices, we examine time spent and frequency of use; differences in children’s media use by gender, race, or socio-economic status; the home media environment; educational media use; and access to the newest mobile media platforms like smart phones and tablets.

    With the rise of YouTube and podcasting, including audio and/or video in your eLearning is more and more a necessity. It used to be expensive to produce video and audio and required a studio to create. No longer. There are dozens of great, inexpensive tools that you can use to create audio and video for your eLearning. Attend this Online Forum to examine the tools and techniques that will help you use media in your eLearning.

    I am sure many of you are already members of the E Learning Guild, but there is a on line forum coming up in July that might be of interest.

Companies want applicants with social-media skills  | ajc.com - 2 views

  • The landscape of today’s job market is shifting, and the shift favors individuals who are savvy in social media. “If you’re in advertising, marketing or communications, the more information you can put out to people where they want to see it, the better,” said Bob Van Rossum, president of MarketPro, a marketing recruitment company. “If you’re in one of those fields, it’s now required for you to be pretty savvy in the social media area, even if it’s not your primary focus.”

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud - 4 views

shared by mcphailj on 28 Jun 10 - Cached
  • Presence Text alone can’t deliver the subtlety and expression required for meaningful connection. If text were enough, we wouldn’t use emoticons, get on planes, or use web-conferencing software. VoiceThreading is a more human way to connect.
  •  
    A tool for having conversations around media. Upload pictures and then add comments. I've seen this used for students around the world to post pictures of their homes and then comment on the differences and similarities. Great language tool because comments are written and/or spoken. Great cultural tool because of the addition of media.

    VoiceThread is a great tool for asynchronous communication about a specific image, document, or presentation. While text is neat, there is something special about listening to someone's voice.
  •  
    VoiceThreads could be created featuring presentations (about a primary document related to immigration) for teacher and student use, encourageing reflection (of historic photograph(s) taken at Ellis Island) by students, and host a debate (about immigration).
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great way to add voice to an online class. Students can create and participate in discussions with voice rather than simply text.
  •  
    This, right here, is what I desperately wish my students had in place of Finalsite as a way of creating blogs for their school Mission Portfolios. I know it isn't set up the exact same way, but it would certainly accomplish nearly the same purpose.
  •  
    Bridges the gap between real-time discussions and the standard video lecture.
  •  
    voice, visuals and real prescence
  •  
    I think this could be a useful tool to communicate online. The "Text can't replace you" is what caught my eye.  It offers voice to your writing.

    creativecommons

    "Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that increases sharing and improves collaboration. "
  •  
    Creative Commons helps people to share what they have created in an appropriate and legal way. It also makes finding and using creative content legally easier.
  •  
    Copyright permission
  •  
    Allows users to easily incorporate selected copyright notice into materials they create. Helps with questions of copyright but allows information to be used freely. Also has materials others have created and placed in CC.
  •  
    I like this as a way to enter into the conversation about copyright laws and web content. There are a number of "life in the digital world" aspects that we tend to ignore or avoid in education due to their complexities and our own ignorance. This is a great vehicle to take us into that realm of discussion.
