I like the idea of collaborative video/multimedia (like through
Cinch?) as being a strong option. Our kids are used to everything
being in quick blips and not sustained attention so by having an
assignment in which students collaborate and build over time we could
have a more indepth project without losing them.
I needed more than 5 minutes! I have no cell service in Erickson
(Nextell) so I am minimal on cel.ly Decided to try We Video but I had
to sign up. Once ready to start it said my flash needed an upgrade.
I didn’t want to do audio in this chaotic room but was running out of
options and time so tried cinch.
I use it to create online lab reports with images, data tables, graphs,
write ups etc. They store them all in ePortfolios in a Google Site.
Students use cell phones and blogs to interview a practicing teacher and share their results.
