Educreations

Students (and Teachers) can use Educreations to explain their process in math, or expand upon a picture story they created. Simply take a picture of the child’s work or let them work it on the iPad or laptop, then record the student’s voice explaining process. Engage students with video to capture ideas, share instantly, replay anytime. Publish current Educreations video before beginning a new one (only one new project may be worked on at a time in the free version).

YouTube

This past year, I’ve flipped all of my classes (except for Physical Education) and am trying a fully flipped teaching experience.  For all of my lessons, I post everything to YouTube and link the videos into the student homework.  Like the introductory video about Flipping the Classroom, I’m spending some time recording my lectures, BUT I am also getting more 1-on-1 time with students as they work on their homework.  It’s definitely been a learning experience for me and the students.  Below is a link to my Anatomy/Physiology YouTube playlist.

Anatomy/Physiology

Tools for Video Production

Blue Snowball Microphone – This is the microphone brand (I couldn’t find the exact one) that Mike uses for recording on Screencastify
