Media and Techno Eagle Updates
Your EDHS connection for media and technology resources.
February is here!
If you see a resource and would like to know more about it or need ideas for how to use it in your classroom, please let me know. I would be happy to help you integrate some of these new resources into your lessons and activities.
Chromebook Add-Ons Worth Checking Out!
EDpuzzle lets you make any video your lesson. Crop a video, explain it with your own voice and embed quizzes at any time. You can use videos from Khan Academy, You Tube and more.
Kaizena allows you to make voice comments on student assignments. This app works with Google Drive, so you can have a student that shared a Google Doc with you. You can highlight portions of the text and make voice comments about that portion of the text to the students.
Record your voice over your slide with Present.me. This is great for flipped classrooms. This app is simple, fast and hassle free.
