Using videos in class

28 Jan

My first blog post…

I tried EduBlogs.  Didn’t stick with it.  I think getting on the Twitter bandwagon has shown me how blogs can be very useful.  For example, now I know I can come back to this post to remember what video sites I use with the kids….
I believe that I have found most of the technology that I use through social media and social networking sites (are those two different things?).

Right now my students are working on skits/video projects.  I give them a choice to perform live or show their video to the class.

Some of the video sites I share with students to edit videos are:

Masher:  mix together video clips, music tracks, and photos all for FREE!

Voice Thread: make a collaborative, multimedia slide show that other viewers can comment on.

Animoto:  put together video, photos and music

I included a subscription to Flixtime in my grant.  As with the others, you can combine images and video.  Flixtime, though,  has a super easy way to edit portions of the project.

If anyone happens to read this and has other video editing sites, I would love to hear about them!

Gracias, Penny
