Make a Webcam Time-Lapse. EmailEmail Since I began making time lapse videos, I’ve occasionally come across a high quality webcam feed on the internet and thought that it would make a great time lapse video.

Make a Webcam Time-Lapse

It’s basically the same setup that I use; a camera set to record some interesting and dynamic subject at timed intervals. Sometimes the webcam even has its own time lapse video, but usually it doesn’t. Over the last month, I’ve been experimenting with different webcam capture software that’s available on the internet. Today’s post is a quick tutorial that uses only free software. Download webcam capture software I’ve been using a program appropriately called Web Cam Time Lapse (download link). MathPickle.

The Wordle of this list! (Click image to enlarge) One of the most popular posts on Edudemic in 2010 was The 35 Best Web 2.0 Classroom Tools Chosen By You and I felt it might be time for an update to that list for 2011.

In order to put together a list of the best Web 2.0 classroom tools, I polled my Twitter followers, Facebook fans (are they still called fans? Likes?) Finding My Voice « About a Teacher. Ever since I was a little girl I loved to write.

Jeez, there are sure a ton of ways to find images on the Web, as well as many places where you can find lengthy link lists to image collections.

The Best Online Sources For Images

I’d lay odds that most people, including myself, just use Google Image Search when they need to find an image. However, there might be instances when you want to use another tool — perhaps you’re a language teacher searching for just the right clip art or photography to illustrate a verb, maybe you have very young students and are concerned about what they might find on Google, possibly you’re particularly teaching about copyright issues, or you want your students to easily connect an image to a writing exercise and have them send an E-Card.

(Google has recently added an option in their advanced image search feature — go to the bottom left under “license” and choose “labeled for reuse”) I thought a “The Best…” list might be helpful in one of those, or other particular, instances.

The timing made sense as West Vancouver Secondary School was being prepared for wireless, and "more and more students were coming to school with their own devices that it made sense to try something new," stated Mr. Kozak. After consideration and consultation with Gary Kern, Director Of Technology for the West Vancouver School District, it was determined that a 1:1 initiative made the most sense. Whereas in the past it was a common approach to make available a class set of devices that students would access for the block, our staff felt that a more holistic integration was required. In the end, a cohort of grade 10 students who would supply their own devices and travel to 6 of their 8 classes together was decided as the format.
