Topic: Emerging Technologies
As you've probably gathered from recent posts, I'm really interested in tools that administrators can use to record and share brief presentations on just about any topic they can think of. For example, a welcoming message on the school blog or a monthly online update for parents and community members. Today I spent some time trying out Jing.
This tool allows you to use images or screen captures to create narratied videos (up to 5 minutes). I'm in the process of figuring out out you really get the final product embedded somewhere. In the meantime, I did a quick video on how to edit a page on the webtoolsforeducators wiki.
Right now you need to click on a link near the bottom of the page to see the video, but I've downloaded it and am using Zamzar to convert it, then will get the file posted and (I hope) embedded pretty quickly.
