Get a Flip camera. I think they're no longer being manufactured, but there are plenty of them out there. Flipshare is their proprietary software/email system for securely sharing.
As much as I love gadgets and slick inventions that do cool things in the classroom, my real focus in ed tech is finding ways to really improve the state of the art in teaching via technology, not just try to teach with state of the art tech. So when I heard about the idea of the flipped classroom at ISTE last week, I was genuinely excited. I know, bad me for not hearing about it sooner, but a whole lot of people were talking about it at the conference and I couldn't help but get swept up in the buzz. It's an idea that actually makes a whole lot of sense and is a killer application of personal tech in education. If you aren't familiar with the idea of a flipped classroom, essentially listening to or watching lectures becomes homework that happens prior to class.
