Free Technology for Teachers: An Easy Way to Create Video Blog Entries

Free Technology for Teachers: An Easy Way to Create Video Blog Entries | Professional Learning Promotion & Engagement | Scoop.it

One of the things that I always mention in my workshops on classroom blogging is the idea that blog posts don't have to be limited to text.

Posting video blog entries can be a great way to have students share reflections on things they have learned and experience in your classroom during a week.

This sounds super easy.  Something that i will try once my blog goes on-line.  Thanks @rmbyrne

Travers had just told Walt, as he liked everyone to call him, “I understand your predicament Mr Disney, I do. I just —hm— I don't know what it is, I'm just suddenly very anti-red. I shan't be wearing it ever again.” Saving Mr. Banks writers Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith get across Disney's sheer enthusiasm and love for setting the imagination on fire and keep it alive throughout the story.
