Xtranormal - making your own movies


I remember being introduced to this tool early on when I was doing the CertICT course with the Consultants-e.com, but somehow I never really got to do anything with it. Yesterday a colleague of mine showed me a cool 3 min video he created for a session and so here I go again! It's super cool and adds that little extra to some discussion tasks in teacher training sessions on how to use ICT in the classroom!

Here's the link: http://www.xtranormal.com

And here's my first movie for an ICT course I taught last year! :-)

Emerging EdTech- cool site with lots of info!!!


This is a really cool site with a wealth of info I came across thanks to some posts in Tweetdeck. So much to look at, read and do to keep up to date! Lots of articles and links to resources, absolutely worth exploring!

Safeshare.TV - this is cool!



I was checking out Nick Peachey's Learning Technology Blog and came across this tool. It's really cool and easy to use and you don't have to download any software. You simply paste in the URL from YouTube and then click generate safe link. It also gives you the option to crop the video so as to see only the part you need for your lesson - even better! Nick's also prepared a video tutorial on how to do it, so do visit his blog!

Do try it out! Here's the link: http://www.safeshare.tv/

Bye for now,

Robert

I'm alive and will resume posting soon!

I know, I know. It's been almost a week since I last posted anything. I'm sorry, but I've been really busy and although the situation hasn't changed I want more resources to try and find out about!!! This is just a gentle reminder to myself about keeping up with my blog!

GLOGSTER Rocks



I came across this great tool when doing the CertICT but didn't really started using till a couple of months ago. Anyway, I came across it again after joining The Consultants-e Community and so here we go. I used it to create my professional profile. I got the idea from one of the members of the community. You can use it with ss, so why not for yourself. I've added the link to my CV!

I've been quite taken by Glogster as a tool and so Ihave been using it as a way to prepare summaries on sessions I've delivered to either CELTA or YL Extension to CELTA trainees and so here are the links to some of these sessions:
