Virtual Field Trips—LDS Homeschooling in California—and everywhere! These links feature wonderful sites that explore places in the world that you may never be able to visit in person. Even if you have been able to visit some of the places in person, you will still enjoy re-living the experience and sharing it with your families through the text, photos, videos and live web cameras on these websites. It is my hope that parents and children will sit down together to explore the world through these virtual field trips, whether or not they homeschool. A few of the field trips were hard to categorize. Rather than start a new category, I added them where I thought they fit best.

iTunes U Video in the Classroom In addition to being fun and motivating, video projects teach students to plan, organize, write, communicate, collaborate, and analyze. A successful video project has undergone a process of researching, scripting, organizing, filming, editing, and publishing. Students also have the opportunity to apply artistic and dramatic skills to their academic work. With the proliferation of webcams, phone cameras, flip cams, digital recorders, and editing tools, video has exploded in the media lives of students. Video Curriculum Using video could be as simple as recording a student oral presentation for future review, or as elaborate as producing an original short film. Outline: As with any written piece, students should start by outlining what they have to say, what they intend to show, and their main points. The steps defined above provide a suggested approach for a robust video project that includes the creation of an original script, filming, editing, and publishing. Video File Formats

Building Career Skills in Video Production Class (Tech2Learn Series) Jim: The look on a kid's face to realize that three or four weeks ago, they had nothing but an idea, and now they've impacted kids emotionally.

New Presentation Tool Lets You Easily Keep Students Engaged From Prezi to Google Docs to PowerPoint , there’s no shortage of ways for teachers to put together a dynamic presentation. But Klowd wanted to take a different approach to help improve the presentation experience for both the person at the front of the classroom and in the back row. SlideKlowd is now available for your classroom and it could be the much-needed tool you’ve been looking for. It’ll wake up your students and get them engaged and interacting with the lesson. Personally, I think this is the type of stuff we’ll be seeing in TED talks in the very near future. At least, we should see it there. So what are the features of SlideKlowd aside from the misspelled name? “There are some fantastic tools out there to help create great presentations, but they don’t address the core of the presentation issue, the skills and engagement capabilities of the presenter or teacher. ” says Ken Holsinger,’s Founder and CEO.
