Have You Ever Considered Making Money Online? Kelly Richards of New York was tired of worrying all the time where the next dollar would come from. Life seemed merely a succession of bills and worrying about how to pay them. One late night while surfing the internet, her long hours of research finally paid off and she discovered a secret system that would help her get a break in life and beat the recession. She was finally able to provide for her three children while staying home with them. I read Kelly's blog last month and decided to feature her story in our local job report. Working online has been a big break for Kelly, who struggled for months going from one dead end job to another. "I basically make $6,000-$8,000 a month online." I asked her how she discovered her secret to success. People use their computers everyday but rarely do they think of using them to make money. Remember, it’s always better to start small if you are a beginner. Here's how to get started:

54 Flipped Classroom Tools For Teachers And Students - 54 Flipped Classroom Tools For Teachers And Students by TeachThought Staff The flipped classroom has continued to enjoy momentum years after its introduction, speaking to its flexible nature, and to the need for a real change in thinking in how we think of time and space in education. Technology has been, more than anything else, the catalyst for the flipped movement. With YouTube now nearly as ubiquitous as the television in many homes, access to video content is more seamless than ever. Further, teachers have taken advantage of not just video channels but a collective video literacy to realize the potential of flipping the classroom.

The Best Tools and Apps for Flipped Learning Classroom July 25, 2014 Following the posting of "Managing iPad Videos in Schools" somebody emailed me asking about some suggestions for tools and apps to create instructional videos to use in a flipped learning setting. In fact, over the last couple of years I have reviewed several web tools and iPad apps that can be used in flipped classroom but the ones I am featuring below are among the best out there. 1- Educlipper Educlipper is a wonderful tool for creating video tutorials and guides to share with students. As a teacher you can create an Educlipper board for your class and share the link with them. Now that you have a shared space with your students, you can go about creating instructional videos using the iPap app of Educlipper.

iVideo.education iVideo.education is a groundbreaking project that explores the possibility of creating interactive videos using small pieces of footage, to promote learning. Although audiovisual material offers considerable potential for integration in didactic activities, this is not often done. It is difficult to find the right material that truly satisfies the needs of teachers and trainers. There is a great deal of documentation, but it is pre-established and not very useful. iVideo.education allows all teachers and trainers, with no particular computer skills, to customise and structure didactic material for his/her own teaching or training activity, using existing footage and and linking it to all sorts of different resources (text documents, images, audio files, ...). It also enables individual learners or groups of learners to insert notes directly onto the video.
