Since it’s been a few months since my last visit, I decided to check out freetech4teachers.com again! With the upcoming Olympics in mind, one of the most recent posts entailed a five minute video about the differences between England, Great Britain, and the UK. Underneath the embedded video, the blog author has a short review on the video as well as suggestions for future use; for example the narrator speaks very quickly so you might want to pause/replay sections. This blog post also included supporting links to access pictures, as well as applications for education.
I also found a post from earlier this week entitled “10 Ways to Create Videos” which discusses 10 online sites to create videos; definitely will be keeping this one in mind! I’ll highlight a few of the sites, but the full list is below if you want to check them out. WeVideo is a collaborative online creation tool, which allows you to invite others to create and edit with you; National Archives Digital Vault allows you to drag and drop digital artifacts into a poster or video; and Muvee Cloud basically provides one an opportunity to create collaborative (private) photo albums, and then you can select your favorite images to create a video for the group.
