Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.

 

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

 

Check it out here: http://pinterest.com/robingood/top-15-free-video-conferencing-tools-2012/

 

P.S.: Feel free to suggest tools you know that should belong in this collection.

With over 10 million users, Pinterest has rocketed to pop-culture fame since its launch in beta in March 2010. This rapid growth makes it the fastest growing social media site of the past year. Educators have caught on to Pinterest in a big way.

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model

School Library. Media Literacy and Learning Commons in the Digital Age: Knowledge Model | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it

"School libraries today feel increasing pressure to reinvent themselves in the face of increasing financial pressures, new media technologies, and a progressively media-savvy population. Their transformation from information reserve to knowledge center has been fast underway. This paper builds on that evolution to develop an argument for media literacy education as the pedagogical foundation for the learning commons model for school libraries. This would position the school library as a dynamic media literacy learning hub, anchoring entire schools around knowledge, expression, collaboration, and creation in both virtual and physical spaces. The paper will highlight the case of Chelmsford High School Learning Commons in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, as a vibrant central space in a school for just this type of integrated learning."

K-12 Copyright Guide Released

K-12 Copyright Guide Released | Media and Information Literacy for Next Gen | Scoop.it
A devoted book lover, Catherine A. Cardno of Education Week’s Commentary staff, writes about new releases in the K-12 education-publishing arena and interviews authors. Educators and policy experts round out the blog with their periodic book reviews.

 

As we all know, copyright issues can been incredibly tricky to figure out—particularly since social media has made it so easy for everyone to publically share material online. The issue of copyright becomes even more complex when you consider all the material that moves through a K-12 classroom, especially when student-research projects are involved. The American Library Association, or ALA, has today released a new copyright reference book created specifically for K-12 educators and libraries.
