Video Posted for Essential Technology Tools for Teaching



On the 29th October, 2011, I gave a one-hour session on “Essential Technology Tools for Teaching” as part of the monthly Technology Tuesdays. Above is an abbreviated video (about 19 minutes in duration) that shares some of the essentials of what was covered. Move information (and a PDF handout) can be found on the Technology Tools page.

The upcoming Technology Tuesdays session will be on iClickers.

Skype improves videochat (new beta)

Good news: Skype has a new beta, which allows four participants to videochat simultaneously.

Bad news: Does not work on Windows 7, Linux or OS X yet.

Hoping that a portable apps version will be available soon (along with versions for the other operating systems).
