Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 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.
