Free Multimedia Resources

I’ve created a list of free multimedia resources for teachers. Some quick research has shown me that there are already some excellent lists of resources out there, but for a variety of topics. This list is intended to compile those lists into one location. General multimedia: http://thecleversheep.blogspot.com/2009/02/creative-commons-chaos.html http://www.archive.org/ http://search.creativecommons.org/ Here’s a list of open source […]

Twenty ways to use video in your classroom

Here are 20 ways you can use video creation with your students in your classroom.  1. Have students video tape themselves playing sports and use the video to analyze their performance. 2. Have a guest student just checking out your school (we have this a lot at our school). Make them the school reporter and […]

Student created videos using free Windows tools

So today I tried an experiment out.  I wanted to see if I could use Windows tools, freely available, already installed on our school’s computers, and produce reasonable student videos.  I succeeded, and I’d like to share my success here.  The process is pretty simple, and not too time-consuming, and best of all, student friendly. […]

Turning Math word problems into Math video problems

Last year I tried an experiment after being exposed to research about the Jasper project.  The basic idea of this project is, turn difficult word problems into authentic video problems which include potential extensions.  The experiment was this, have my students create the video word problems, and start creating a library of these problems to […]

Digital Story

Why did you choose this particular tools? How did the tool impact the manner in which you told your story (perhaps in a way that is different had you just used text or related the story using your voice)? How might you use such tools in your own teaching to produce materials for students? How […]

How has multimedia enhanced my learning?

The best example of multimedia I watched recently from which I really learned a lot was a movie I watched about a relatively new farming practice called "Biodynamic farming". The video was relatively simple, done documentary style, but without seeing the actual practices they were discussing first hand through the video, I would not have […]

Video authoring reflection

I just finished our assignment to do some video editing. Results below. What was difficult about this assignment for me was not the creating of the video, but the choosing of a topic "relevant for my LMS". The particular modules I am doing in my LMS are for a mathematics course, and creating a useful […]

DVD authoring

  I actually didn’t burn a DVD for this activity, instead I will discuss the process as I have done it before.  This is because my laptop doesn’t do a very good job of burning DVDs (and I’m stuck on it for the summer until our stuff arrives from Bangkok) and I don’t have any […]

Making mathematics fun

One major barrier to students learning mathematics is that they spend a lot of time NOT enjoying themselves.  Let’s be honest, listening to poetry is enjoyable if the poetry is selected carefully.  Having discussions about current events in History, while learning critical analysis skills, is fun.  Solving a cubic equation is just not a lot […]
