Screencastify

Are you looking for a quick way to explain and share how to do anything from your computer? I love Screencastify to make quick YouTube clips for my students or fellow educators! It is a simple video screen capture software for Chrome. The great thing about this Chrome extension is that you can record voice and video at the same time!

Here is a quick tutorial I made to supplement a short professional development I did my fellow educators.

I can see this will become a wonderful tool for all those that teach or want to explain just about anything! And what’s even better is this great Chrome extension is totally free!

Reflector

After dropping the idea of mirroring our school iPads to an interactive whiteboard (our classroom computers did not have WiFi) I finally came up with a cost effective solution called ‘Reflector’ and a USB WiFi dongle.

Reflector allows educators and students to wirelessly display iPads on a projector or smart board. Students can wirelessly present homework, and teachers can share iPads during presentations, untethering from the desk or podium. Reflector supports multiple device mirroring, so students can compare work, show their work without interrupting the presentation or complete work side-by-side in real time.

Now I am so excited as I can start showing the students and teachers many great edtech ideas like Augmented Reality and Aurasma . I have a PD for our teachers on Monday I hope I can blow their minds with the cool things you can do in your lesson!
