Now that you can do vids on Instagram, lots of cool collage animation tools are coming out. This one is free today for your iphone called PicGrid - I actually installed it and am testing on my ipad. It lets you pic photos and add music before uploading to Instagram. Lots of people have started using instagram video since Vine was sold — a cool app worth trying. (Instagram doesn’t let you link out, so you can search for this today in the Apple store.) #instagram #collage #video #free #tip #somethingfuntoplaywith #instagrampro

BBC News - Diary of a Ysgol Friars maths teacher in Finland

So, if you want to peek inside Finland, there are 3 videos on this BBC Wales site that will give you what you want. This Diary of a math teacher in Finland gives you a peek. There’s also two other great videos “Let teachers teach, say Finns” and “Finland Classroom Success Secrets.” You can embed these that I can find, so you’ll need to share the links and watch them on the site. These short videos are just under 4 minutes and would be great to share in a staff meeting.

OpenEd

While most teachers will not understand what this means, an API is something that lets other websites interact with a main website. OpenEd has released an API to allow others to interact with their resources and find things based on standards or keywords. What this means is that OpenEd is going to be a very useful tool for all of education in the future because of this technological tool. It also means that if you’re developing for a state or for an organization that provides educational resources, you should tap into this for a huge repository of almost a quarter of a million standards aligned resources that your teachers can search. This is great news.

A Capella Science - Bohemian Gravity! (by acapellascience)

The strange world in which we live is that a masters student will likely get his thesis read because it is attached to a really incredibly geekily awesome video which is a physics parody of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. It is worth a watch even if string theory is something you do when you try to estimate how far to stand away from the your friend when you try to shoot the string cheese at his mouth.

FOCUS show with Special Guest Vicki Davis (by TheFocusShowOnline)

Had a great conversation a few weeks a go with Don Wetrick and his students. They filmed via Skype and my students got a chance to share what they learn and about my classroom. I enjoyed the conversation and have to admit that my students were quite jealous of the recording studio Don has.

I met Don at the Microsoft Innovative Educators conference in Seattle. He’s a great teacher and teaches with video. I love that he has his students create a video show about social media in the classroom. I follow their YouTube channel online, you mgith want to as well.
