Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | The Slothful Cybrarian | 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.

Well-known K-12 tech expert, Kathy Schrock, presents a helpful list, mostly aimed at K-12 folks, but the list offers a model for thinking about iPad use in the classroom.

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians

How Does Your Boss See You?: Proof That Principals Value Librarians | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Principals value their librarians. They also want them to be more visible leaders.

Those are just two of the interesting findings from a recent survey of 102 media specialists and 67 principals. In fact, 90 percent of the administrators that we surveyed think we have a positive impact in schools—and a large number also feel that our jobs are important.

Os diretores de escolas nos EUA valorizam os seus bibliotecários. 90% dos administradores consideram que o trabalho desenvolvido pelos bibliotecários é importante e tem um impacto positivo nas escolas. Não obstante, os diretores também querem que os bibliotecários se tornem líderes mais visíveis. Estas são apenas duas das conclusões interessantes de uma pesquisa recente.
