Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Ways to Add Interactive Elements to Your Videos

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Ways to Add Interactive Elements to Your Videos | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Over the last few days I've featured a couple of free tools for adding interactive elements to your videos. In the last year I've reviewed a few other services and methods for doing the same thing. This is a round-up of the ways that you can add interactive elements to your videos. The first four tools could be used by students to create a series of choose your own adventure videos. These tools could be used by teachers to enhance the short videos that they create for flipped lessons.

Transitions to Digital Media | Are school libraries on the way out?

Transitions to Digital Media | Are school libraries on the way out? | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it
So is this the beginning of the end for school libraries? Not by a long shot, says Susan Ballard, president of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). Enlightened administrators realize that school librarians still play a pivotal role for students, guiding them through search processes and helping them find appropriate, reliable, vetted resources in print and digital format for research and other classroom projects.

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Digital Literacy: How to Embed Almost Anything

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Digital Literacy: How to Embed Almost Anything | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

One of the things I look for in a Web 2.0 tool is a built in embed feature that allows users to display live 3rd party content in a blog or website so visitors don't have to leave the page. Fortunately many Web 2.0 tools include an auto-generated embed code that can be copied and pasted into the html or source of a blog or website to display live content, but if a tool doesn't include that feature you can usually use an iFrame to embed the content yourself.
