1-PB Works-How to create wikis -ALL TEACHERS
If you have ever thought about doing wikis with your students but felt they were a bit complicated then watch these videos. I take you through everything step by step and go into all the important details. You can set up wikis with your students for 2011/2012 academic year.
2-Brainshark-Great tool for digital storytelling- ALL TEACHERS
This is fabulous and is so well done. I will be adding a second set of videos next month about this tool. It allows you to load up pictures, PowerPoint, Video and even documents and then add voice narration to them and then share them. It is so easy and so well organised. Great if you want to communicate, share PowerPoints with people and include voice, talk about a picture or a document. Great for speaking activities with your students. You have to see this tool to believe it and even more impressive it is FREE!!!. Watch these videos.
3-Voki-Make your own speaking avatars -ALL LANGUAGE TEACHERS
This site allows you to creat avatars and then make them speak. You can e-mail the avatars, add them to your wiki or blog. This is a great tool for getting students to speak and write and will work in any language. Also fun if you want to add an avatar to your own website or blog. Easy to do, these videos take you right through the tool.
4-Camtasia-How I make the videos on my site
This set of videos will show you how I make the videos on my site. I use a tool called Camtasia. You can download a trial version of Camtasia from Techsmith here. It lasts for 30 days.
