  • Have fun with yourself.
    By the way Skitch is awesome if you have a mac.
  • You can shoot yourself and put it online for when you have a sub.
    By the way, posterous.com is the most awesome teaching tool to go with your webcam
    This was actually shot by a flip video camcorder.
  • You can take pictures of demonstrations.
  • Kids can make the powerpoint for you, which gets making a class more fun, relevant and engaging.
    Photo Booth
  • Logger pro is awesome.

    Assessing that.
    Using digital cameras.
    iMovie
  • In google search make an animated gif. My favorite is makeagif.com, except that it is down a lot. You can use it to actually take the pictures.
    Tell a story in 5 pictures. Example: http://www.flickr.com/groups/visualstory/discuss/72157623556917594/
