love the online video editor, so that my students can edit videos from anywhere at anytime on any computer. And MovieMaker only lets you move the video "shell" from one computer to another, so you still have to transfer all of your media files.not easy for many.

MuVChat: Collaboration during Class Videos

Cell Phones in Learning

While we do not have access to the MuVChat software, schools can use some free resources such as Wiffiti or Polleverywhere's free text poll. I recently came across a new resource called MuVChat. MuVChat allows movie theater viewers to send text messages directly to the movie screen while watching a feature film. While this resource has obviously been created for social entertainment, I can see wonderful possibilities for chatting during class movies.

The Politics of Cell Phones in Schools

Cell Phones in Learning

Edweek published an interesting article in November highlighting the problems with students having cell phones in schools. Specifically students posting videos to YouTube (and other online vlogging-type sites) of teachers and other students that were taken secretly in the schools. While the article goes on to talk about this being a reason why schools need to have policies against cell phones it also opens up a discussion about the legality of these videos being posted. Yes, a potential solution -educate our youth on appropriate uses with cell phones!

Debate.Should Cell Phones Be Allowed in Schools?

Cell Phones in Learning

On the America's Debate website , they are contemplating both sides of whether Cell Phones should be allowed in schools. Probably one of the most cited reasons for allowing cell phones in schools is "student safety" and not for learning. As I have mentioned previously on my blog there are plenty of outside of school activities where the students can use their cell phones such as field trips or homework assignments. It is a great way to read about all different perspectives on this issue.

Mobile Devices and the Flipped Classroom Model

The Mobile Learner

As the student works through a video in their own time and in their own space, they can pause to think about what the teacher discussed, to take notes, or can replay a section they did not understand.

Be it a video recording or audio recording, students can use their mobile devices effectively to access instructional content in a Flipped Classroom setting. In the post, we will consider the use of mobile devices within the Flipped Classroom method.

Create Cell Phone "I search" video papers with Twiddeo

I was listening to Ed Talk (01_14) recently and they (John, Jennifer, Dave, and Jeff) spoke about a new resource called Twiddeo , which is just Twitter with video. You can post videos from your computer, but you can also post immediately from your cell phone to your personal account. This allows for many "out-of-school" learning assignments with cell phones and video. The first idea that came to my head was conducting an "I search" video paper. know when I taught high school writing "I search" papers was very popular. So I decided to try it out.

Young kids connect school with home via Futurelab’s Dream Catcher project

I just watched a short video by Futurelab about the Dream Catcher program. The idea is not only to connect what they are learning at school with what they are learning at home. Furthermore, only very few young children can explain what they have learned in school all the time. Any school could set this up with a few second-hand digital cameras on a very low budget.
