10 Very Important Video Content Tips May 9, 2012 8:37 am

10 Very Important Video Content Tips

  The great thing about video and my Professional Learning Network (PLN), is that as much as we may want to reinvent the wheel, there is simply no need to do so. Powerful and useful information is at our fingertips. So as I perused my latest Twitter followers this past week, I found a new site, that upon reflection, has some incredibly great video information for teachers wanting to incorporate video in their classroom. Now although these tips originate from a marketing site, […]

Alternatives to Copyright Music and Materials

Copyright is an issue I discuss with my students on a daily basis. Recent news of SOPA, PIPA and ACTA have been debated topics in government and in the court of public opinion. And inevitably, copyright becomes a hot topic when I travel and present to educators who allow students to create videos for their classes. I recently received an email from one of my colleagues who is facing many of the same copyright issues I have dealt with personally, and […]

iPad EdResources

As 2011 winds down, I have spent a good deal of time thinking about all of the online resources and tools that have helped make this past year a successful ‘Year of the iPad’ in my school district. And with an upcoming winter vacation ahead for many educators next week, I thought it might be nice to share out some of my favorite resources for using iPads, iPods, and iPhones in the classroom. Although there are many, many fantastic resources […]

September 11th and My Social Studies Classroom September 7, 2011 12:00 pm

September 11th and My Social Studies Classroom

I have been asked by many if I will discuss 9-11 in my classroom.  As a social studies teacher I feel it is my duty to talk about important events such as September 11th.  I could write a lot about how I felt and what I saw during those months, they are still fresh within my memory.  I can playback the exact moment I heard the news and it chokes me now as I write.  There are so many stories […]

EdGamer 20: The Tools We Use for EdGamer

EdGamer 20 is short and sweet, but it doesn’t lack any punch! In fact, in honor of our 20th show, we give you a gift. In this episode we pass along to the listener a list of places we routinely check and monitor to find all the great sites, tools and gadgets we bring to you each week! We have brought you into the sporadic, sarcastic, app-addicted and often downright scary brain behind EdGamer…good luck and enjoy!
Additional note- Gerry needs to understand that there is a difference between Blue’s News and Blue’ Clues. It is Steve and Joe. We got Joe correct, but using the word Steven threw me off. Steven didn’t sound right. It’s just Steve.

New Teacher – New Strategy #3: RSS – From Weidig

In this post, I will be looking at RSS the power and potential of Real Simple Syndication.

Overall, RSS keeps you from having to hunt for information… especially from sites that you frequent often to gather information. This saves time and energy and focuses your attention on evaluating information and choosing whether to delve further into researching a specific topic or simply moving […]
