For those time I DO get mail...

This was shared on Plurk today and couldn't resist posting it here. This would be one letter opener I don't think I'd misplace.

How NOT to use Power Point

I was searching for a completely different video and ran across this one on TeacherTube and thought I would share it. It's funny, but the scary thing is that I know people who use Power Point like this!

How to Private Plurk

There seems to be a lot of discussion on Plurk about how to privately plurk. I admit to struggling with it myself and it is a bit finicky. So, I created this video, which I hope will help.

I'm cobannon on Plurk. Come try it out. The conversations are great!

Never Lecture In Class Again!

This great video was shared in a Chatzy chat by Justin Reeve. What an incredible approach to teaching and learning. The teachers responsible for this innovative approach, which they call "pre-vodcasting", work in Woodland Park, CO and have an educational consulting website where you can learn more about it.

4th of July 2008

This is our homeshow that we do every year. It's the first time that I've videotaped it though. I wanted to try out my new camera that I got for Christmas and I was thrilled with the results. Although it won't zoom, it begins filming almost instantly and the sound capture and video quality were excellent for quick shots like these. I used my Sony Cybershot DSC-H3.
