Multimedia in the classroom

  1. 1. Multimedia in the Classroom Online Summer 2010 Donna Leahy
  2. 2. Using Images and Photography <ul><li>Microsoft Paint: This software was user friendly which was helpful as I am new to uploading and editing pictures. </li></ul><ul><li>I was able to explore cropping, editing, inverting, and changing the size of photos. </li></ul><ul><li>In the future I feel more comfortable to further explore sites such as Pixlar. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Using Images and Photography <ul><li>Photobucket: You can use this site to post pictures for family and friends to view. </li></ul><ul><li>In the beginning I was having difficulty, but caught on as I worked on the various projects. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  4. 4. Using Audio and Webstreaming <ul><li>Voicethread: This was beneficial because all or little software needs to be installed. </li></ul><ul><li>It can hold images, documents, and videos. </li></ul><ul><li>I found voice thread easy to use and was more comfortable uploading photos after completing previous assignments. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Using Audio and Webstreaming <ul><li>I had difficulty adding voice to the thread. My computer does not have a separate microphone or one built into the computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Voicethread also allows you to post text comments which I found to be a useful alternate. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I realized that at school we may run into the same problem, but we can still benefit from voicethread. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Using Audio and Webstreaming <ul><li>It allows you to comment on others people’s threads. </li></ul><ul><li>I think this is a site I can even use with my third graders! </li></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Creating Videos with Generators <ul><li>Animoto: This site holds images, documents, videos, and voices. </li></ul><ul><li>This site was very easy to navigate. The tutorial provided easy to follow instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>This site I will definitely incorporate into my classroom this year. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Creating Videos with Generators <ul><li>I think Animoto offers a great feature of choosing music right from their site. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students can see their work turned into a unique video. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I will definitely be using this in my classroom this year! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Posting Original Videos <ul><li>Jaycut: Jaycut is a web based program that allows you to make movies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It was very easy to upload pictures to the site. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It was also easy to upload music. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I had difficulty trimming the song when the pictures were finished. After some help and exploring on the site I finally figured it out. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Posting Original Videos <ul><li>I plan on trying Jaycut this upcoming school year. </li></ul><ul><li>This site eliminates the problem of our school both Mac’s and PC’s since it is web based. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  11. 11. My Experience <ul><li>I found this class to be a great experience. I faced some challenges in the beginning getting used to completing the assignments in a new way. The Moodle was easy to navigate which was a big help. </li></ul><ul><li>This course taught me a variety of new things that I can take right into my classroom. It was a well designed class which encouraged people to work at their own level and achieve success. Rich was a great instructor and I will definitely be signing up for another online course. </li></ul>
