This is often the step many of us leave out..the ability to consider ourselves from an objective point of view.  The result so such an omission is often repeated mistakes and heartache....

Graeme Reid's curator insight, January 15, 5:50 PM

Self awareness is vitally important to personal development.  Do you know you strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement and do you really know how other people view you?

Genrefication of your school’s fiction collection

Genrefication of your school’s fiction collection | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Do you use the Dewey Decimal Classification at your school? Can your kids figure out what "142.780973" means? Would they know where to find the "Sports" books? Using this logic, many schools are wondering if they and their students might be better served using a book-store model, or genres, when it comes to their fiction collection…. but where to begin?

This post is another example of the "Bitesize" PD that Fractus Learning offers. Screencast-O-Matic allows you to create videos a presentation that is on your computer. It is easy to use, and their is both a free version and a premium version. The sections covered in this post are:

1. Instructional walkthroughs

2. Record presentations and slides

3. Flipped lessons

4. Student guides

5. The power of post-processing

In addition there is a short video that provides and overview and links and next steps which provides tutorials about Screencast-O-Matic, flipped learning, assessment and more.

Becky Roehrs's curator insight, November 23, 4:14 PM

The free version doesn't record audio, so use Jing which is free but only records 5 minute videos. Otherwise, pay for Screencast-O-Matic or pay for Snagit (Educator license)..Snagit has lots of features for screenshots and no limits on your video length.
