Additional Resources & Links

Links to help you create the flip

  • Screencast-o-matic.com - super easy way to create a screencast mp4 video of your lesson, save and share
  • Smart Notebook Recorder - extremely easy also, but at this time won't save as an mp4, you would need to convert it, as an extra step, or just let students know they can't watch them on smartphones or tablets (clicking on the blue text will take you to a how to video)
  • Sophia.org - has a built in screencast software and provides the ability to share lessons, objectives etc with students
  • Google + - many teachers have developed communities for their classes, hangouts, and use embedded Google Forms in lessons as a quick formative assessment strategy
  • Blendspace - is a great tool that will allow you to curate content - video, text, links, infographics etc - into an easy to follow grid that students could work their way through.  Learn how to use it with this video
  • Audacity - is a free software that you can download to make podcasts - if videos just aren't your thing
  • Touchast - combines video, images, articles, webpages, twitter feeds that you can create on an iPad or online - your video becomes a "container for other media".
  • Educreations - whiteboard app for iPad - use to create/search tutorials that are hosted and searchable online.  You must save your work to their hosting site, however you have the choice ot make your work private or public.
  • ShowMe - whiteboard app for iPad - use to create tutorials/search tutorials that are hosted online.  You must save your work to their hosting site, and all work is public.
  • Explain Everything - another whiteboard app for iPad that allows you to control where you save and how you share.  This is a paid app

Links to help you share your flip

  • SchoolPointe websites are an obvious way to share because all students have access to our webpages while at school
  • SchoolTube is a good alternative to YouTube, which we currently cannot access.  The site is free, student friendly, and includes an extra security of feature that requires you to be approved as a moderator for the site.  Nothing goes public, unless it was approved by a moderator first.  This is a very good choice for elementary school teachers in particular
  • Edmodo if you aren't already using Edmodo, be sure to sign up under the Fort Thomas domain so you can easily connect with other FTIS teachers.  Edmodo is a Social Learning Platform that allows you to upload vidoes, quiz students, monitor student engagement, and award badges (to name a few things). It also works with Edcanvas, and has a ton of resources and professional content available for you to use easily
  • Schoology is another Social Learning Platform and includes many of the same features as Edmodo, it is a year younger than Edmodo, but is quickly gaining in popularity and content
  • Sophia.org allows you to create and share content with your classes - although it doesn't offer all of the features as something like Edmodo, it is fairly user friendly, and includes a lot of support in the form of instructional videos
