  • Screen captures done with Greenshot – free download – I find it much quicker than Prt Screen because easy to select area capturing – you may prefer to use your whiteboard camera tools
  • Make it real creative exciting When the BBC did a survey of children to see if wanted to have a website to help with school work and home work = not much interest When asked – do you want to learn to be a time-lord, learn to navigate space, solve logic problems to escape the daleks, etc much more enthusiatic
  • Just paste it in and click submit
  • Great set of Google docs – teachers collaborating to show different ways they have used a variety of applications in the classroom.
  • Photos – as we become more familiar with IWB software / videoing software etc – the issue is often finding the right picture – with the right to use it. Flickrcc – searches for pictures where this right has been given as long as the photo is attributed to the photographer
  • We’re in Brazil
  • With this photographer – what else can we (the photographer) see?
  • Now the panoramic views from the same place
  • Tom Barrett again
  • Back to words – blogging – being taken up very enthusiastically by more schools now.
  • Heathfields good example and have used Voicethread to say why they like it so much
  • Twitter – news Showed this to one teacher – who was off to do the same with MacBeth
  • Now your turn – register so we can see who you are – or go in anon
