"Geeks love their sleek gadgets and powerful devices – actually, what they love have much to do with technology itself. The latest tablet, the newest OS, the coolest of smartphones, you name them, they went and got them. And then there is the cute side of technology."

These are for my colleagues who have been sleeping at their desks dreaming of attending my first tech training session for this year: "Get your head in the Cloud." 

 

I'll be awarding Edmodo badges!

 

Maybe we should also award Tech Cadre members pillows AND t-shirts. Ha ha, dream on!

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Video Projects to Try With Your Students | License to Tech | Scoop.it

From Richard Byrne's blog:

 

"I like video projects because when they're organized properly students have to write, research, produce, and revise just as they would if they were writing a story or research paper. The difference is that shared finished video projects have the potential to reach many more people than a well-written essay does."

 

"Here are five ideas and tools for video projects that you can try with your students." 

 

1. Biographical and Autobiographical videos

2. Common Craft -style videos

3. Stop-motion videos

4. Documentary videos

5. Flipped classroom videos

Blogging is a really important tool to help with literacy skills. Give it a try.
