Free Browser-based Screencasting with Screencast-O-Matic » Playing with Media | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

Infrequently I’m required to use a Windows computer to create something, and today I needed to combine 2 PDFs for our school newsletter and post them to our website. Our district is using DotNetNuke as our CMS (content management system) and for some reason our site pages need to be edited in Internet Explorer for Windows. (Strange things have happened when I’ve edited with my favorite browser on all platforms, Google Chrome.) I recorded a 7 minute, 45 second screencast today demonstrating how I use the free Windows software program “PDFmate PDF Converter Free” to combine 2 PDF files into a single file, and then publish that file to our school website.

Create Short Biographies With Morfo 3D Faces - iPad Apps for School

Create Short Biographies With Morfo 3D Faces - iPad Apps for School | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"Yesterday, at the Catholic Schools Foundation Summer Tech Conference at Boston College I saw a fantastic panel discussion on using technology in K-2 classrooms. One of the really neat things that I saw was an example of students using Morfo 3D Faces to create short biographies. Morfo 3D Faces is an iPad app that you can use to create a talking picture of person’s face. You can take a picture of a person or you can take a picture of a picture of a person (think taking a picture of a picture of George Washington). Once you’ve captured the picture you can customize the face by altering the eyes, mouth, and nose to move as you talk. After customizing the picture you can record yourself talking."

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.

FlipQuiz | Gameshow-style Quiz Boards for Educators | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.
