At the Freshman Transition Network we are always trying to find resources that can be used in the classroom to motivate and inspire kids. This video is one such resource.
Your students need to see this. After they watch it, take an opportunity to talk about how they treat their fellow man. Talk to them about Love and Forgiveness and Humility. Take a moment to talk about judging others and the treating…
Hi there! I'm doing a list of all free websites where we can download any video (on a wiki page) to share with my Bulgarian colleagues. This is a gloggie I made in English on the same topic. Sharing it with you I'd like to get more information about the similar websites you have been using on that purpose. Thanks in advance!
As a parent of a 14-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl, I am very careful whenever I use the words 'special needs' in connection with children.
On the one hand I believe that every child is a special needs child, simply because they are all individuals, each with their own special needs. Many of those special needs they have in common with other children – for example the need to be truly loved, cared for and… Continue

I created a set of high-definition videos for use on newer IWBs that I've found useful for students I work with who have autism spectrum disorders. I created shorter video clips for teachers to use in their lessons that also have a calming/relaxing effect on their students.
I'm in the process of experimenting with interactive video, using similar content.
I‘ve been reading a lot of questions on several Blogs and Facebook pages recently about maintaining children’s interest and attention while they are doing their schoolwork, whether it be at home, or in the classroom. At the same time I have been seeing comments about problems that parents and teachers are having with children’s lack of interest in reading. So as a parent of 2 children, I’d like to share something with you that has really helped us with our 2 children, in both areas – and at the… Continue

There are two new tools that content creators need to know about.
Why do they need to know about them? Because they are tools that people in media creation (Graphic Artists and Video Editors) are using every day in their own Industry Standard format. As a Graphic Artist will be familiar with Photoshop and a Video Editor will be familiar with Final Cut Pro or something like Premiere, these tools are making their way to the web. Although they may not be the exact tools, the functionality… Continue

This week at the ITSC conference in Portland OR, I was really shocked at the amount of demand for anything to do with teachers learning how to use video creation in the classroom.
Those sessions looked to be full and maybe even overflowing!
As a media producer, I create video projects for the web for my clients so I am doing this week in and week out. I also
So, how many of you are wanting to get some help with the "How To" on… Continue
