Gary Harwell's curator insight, June 25, 2014 1:10 AM

The problem in a pre-programmed system of teaching is that you don't have the time or classroom availability to use Google Docs effectively.

Free Technology for Teachers: Updated Page of Video Creation Tools and Tutorials

Free Technology for Teachers: Updated Page of Video Creation Tools and Tutorials | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
It was recently, and correctly, pointed out to me that the video creation resources page on FreeTech4Teachers.com was terribly outdated. This evening I began to rectify that situation by removing the old information that was on the page and replacing with updated tutorials.

On the video creation resources page you will now find a PDF outlining six types of video projects, a playlist of videos about making flipped videos, a playlist of videos about making audio slideshow videos, a playlist about WeVideo, and a webinar recording about making animated videos.

I will be updating the page again later this week when I finish the next guide that I am developing.

Lessons Worth Sharing | TED-Ed

Lessons Worth Sharing | TED-Ed | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Report

 

"TED-Ed is a multifaceted educational platform based on the knowledge-proliferating philosophies of TED, the organization made famous by its renowned TED talks. To take full advantage of TED-Ed, educators will first want to explore the existing Lessons, of which there are thousands. A drop down menu reveals a dozen subjects, including The Arts, Business & Economics, Health, Mathematics, and others. Various filters, including Content, Grade Level, and Duration, help narrow down to a specific topic. Some of the best lessons, such as "The Benefits of Good Posture," have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and include thought provoking, ready-made multiple choice and open-answer questions and prompts for student discussions. Educators who would like to use the platform to build their own lessons around web videos (from TED, YouTube, or Vimeo, for example) will need to create an account. Registration is easy, however, and only requires an email and password before creation of video-based lessons can occur."
