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.

Discovery Education Web2014 : Web 2.0 Tools - Presentation Tools - 1 views

    • jsanchezhadfield
       
      I really like the capability of combining programs like Notebook or smartboard, power point, PDF's or prezi into a one compatible platform.
  • Break out of the box! Prezi.com throws the slide-show model out the window and presents a giant canvas instead. (It also throws paint brushes out the window in favor of bubbles.)
    • jsanchezhadfield
       
      I use Prezi almost daily and the results are amazing. My students get glued to the screen and hopefully to more knowledge. The best part is that you can browse for hundreds if not thousands of Prezi presentation shared around the world

    Show, don't tell

    Web 2.0 brings a whole new dimension to the old adage "show, don't tell"—and lets you share your presentations anytime, anywhere, with anyone you like.

    With Web 2.0 you can push the boundaries of traditional presentations, mix things up, and make learning more engaging than ever before.

      I actually have used Prezi for some classroom presentations; I find it gives presenting a bit more dimension and interest...and frankly, it's fun! I've gotten several of my students to use it, when they didn't have Power Point. It's really a great free tool.

      Prezi creates presentations that are out of this world, literally! Imagine being able to present your findings on the solar system -- not by following a linear, slide by slide structure, but instead following the structure of planets orbiting the sun! This "3d presentation tool" rocks!

Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 4 views

    • Kait Sanford
       
      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.
    • Rebecca Brink
       
      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    "Edmodo helps connect all learners with the people and resources needed to reach their full potential."
  •  
    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.

    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.

      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.

    Media-based tools help teachers and trainers reach all learners, regardless of their diverse learning styles. Additionally, tools like the avatar generate demonstrations that foster interactive learning and engagement.

  • Animoto

    • Sharon Tomski
       
      I love animoto and recently used it with a high school class. The students found images depicting Visual Design Principles and then made animoto videos from them. I also made a promotional video for my class. It makes spectacular videos with little work. You upload images or short videos, add text, choose music and Voila!

      You can get free educational accounts for your students. It gives them longer videos. Ask for a promo code at: http://animoto.com/education.
