Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | Teaching | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter | Social Media in Education [Infographic] | Teaching | Scoop.it

Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.

I think this video is a good resource because first it starts talking about homework cons, but then it starts giving solutions and ideas about overcoming the fear of doing homework.  Also it isn't long and it is not boring so people that see it will learn in a fun way.  Last but not least it will give you a lot of ideas and examples you can put in your persuasive essay.
