Screenr - Your own screencasts for free!

I came across this app just recently and I think it's fantastic. I've been using PodOmatic to create short podcasts for my trainees with guidance for assignments and planning, etc. and although the podcasts are great and very useful, I think this app has a little bit more to offer - the visual element. Why not give it a try? I think it's really good not only for teacher training but for teaching in general. Students/trainees can be at both sides of the table: they can create their own screencasts or watch the ones you prepare to help them with their own leanring and studying!

What I like most is that you don't have to download anything and it is FREE! What else do you want?

WorksheetWorks.com - Oh yes!

Well, it's been a month already since my last post so I thought it was about time for a new one. I've been really busy with my MA work so that's why. Anyways, I came across WorksheetWorks.com and I think it's really good. Of course, I suggest that before printing any worksheets you do check for the accuracy of the information in it as the info is in there already and all you have to do is tick boxes choosing what you need. I checked a few and they were fine but don't take things for granted!

I really like the fact that it's free and that it's not only for English but for maths and other subjects too so really good stuff!

Bye for now and enjoy this site!
