7 Ways Teachers Can Create Videos without Installing any Software ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Ways Teachers Can Create Videos without Installing any Software ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

"Today while I was reading a short article on the importance of videos in education, it dawned on me to compile a list of some of the best video creation tools to share with you here. I do have a separate section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning where I have been featuring a plethora of video tools . But today's collection is somehow different not only because it contains the cream of the crop but also because these tools are all web based.

All of the web tools below do not require any software installation and you can work on them right from your browser. I am pretty sure you will find them very useful particularly  when working on video projects with your students. Please have a look and share with us if we have missed any important title. Enjoy!"

Some really good points in this article. "The greatest risk of our investment in tablet computers is that nothing will change. We could find in a few years that, at great expense, we’ve traded paper textbooks for digital textbooks, paper notebooks for digital notebooks, and paper multiple choice tests for digital multiple choice tests. We may find that as educators we simply take these expensive new devices and digitize existing practices."

Mechanical Walking Space Man's comment, September 6, 2013 1:15 PM
Agree - if existing practices can do the job well, why change - it all begins with a drawing, is usually my starting point for any good idea…

We all remember using mnemonic devices in school (Did "Never Eat Shredded Wheat" get you through third grade geography?), but memory tricks can be more than just study aids. As adults, there are a number of simple and practical tools to help you remember people's names and stop forgetting where you parked your car or left your keys."

Finding apps isn’t difficult. Finding education apps is only a bit more challenging. Finding free education apps is also possible. Finding free education apps worth downloading is a different story entirely.


The following is our list for the 55 best apps for learning we can find. Some are formal learning–math drilling and phonics, for example–while others are RSS readers, social media platforms, and the like. These are purposely not all purely academic, “training” apps that focus on individual skills, but rather the an array of apps students could use daily to improve their ability to think, connect, and use information.
