Today, I hosted a workshop for teachers at my school:
Audio & Video Editing (Beyond the Pecha Kucha)!
Many teachers in History, Science, World Language, and beyond are assigning this format for students to complete projects — 5 mins, 20 slides with a voice-over narration. We will review various tools that are available either on the Mac OS or are freely available open-source software tools.
TIP SHEET – PECHA KUCHA Instructions- iMOVIE is the BEST OPTION
Next week, I will be heading with a few colleagues to a very cool event – xR in Edu, hosted by EdTech Times at SRI International. Check out this article for more information!
Yesterday, I hosted a lunch-time workshop for Faculty at my current school. Many teachers are trying out Google Classroom this year, and I wanted to share some updates, hear from teachers about their experience, and provide some time to work on projects or optimizations in this area. The presentation from this session is below!
Hope your summer is going well.
I just came across this very informative article on TechWorld.com with 14 great Google Docs tips. Check it out HERE or click the image below!
Google for Education just announced that you can now run a Google Expedition in Solo Mode! Previously, to run a Google Expedition, a teacher needed to run the app on their phone, and all students (participants) needed to be on the same Wifi network, and then run the app as “followers” of the teacher. So, in essence the Teacher led a virtual field trip in VR, using Google Cardboard viewers & phones. This made it complicated for a teacher to try out an Expedition, for at least 2 phones were needed.
Now anyone can take a Solo Expedition! The app is now available on Android and will soon be out for iOS (iPhones).
Today, I hosted an Audio & Video editing workshop for Teachers! We explored some really great software that comes with our MacBooks, such as Image Capture, iMovie, and more! Check out more information and links below!
