Exploring Multimedia and curation with class today!

This week I am teaching students in a Multimedia class how to cruate information.  We are using a few new tools.
  1. Pinterest - Curate topics of Interest (example Multimedia Board for class)
  2. Flipboard - Magazines
  3. Students will be making Screencast-O-Matic 
  4. How to Guides using SnapGuide 
  5. Smores Flyer (see below) to publish a lesson
    I created the assignment using Smores link and embedded the content below.

You can copy it to a Blog Post or better yet add as a gadget to your sidebar!

Flipboards is another curation tool.  I created a Multimedia Book and invited another person to co-curate with me.  Here is the link to the book on Multimedia http://flip.it/mX2DI 

View my Flipboard Magazine.

Note: When using Flipboard, I have experienced issues with logging in with my Google+ account and unable to access on my mobile device.  The tip seems to be create your account first on your mobile device and then log in using the web.

My Screen Recorder Pro will work better for you. It is an excellent screencast tool. Records your screen and audio from the speakers or your voice from the microphone - or both simultaneously. The recordings are clear and look great when played back on your PC or uploaded to YouTube. It will record directly to AVI, WMV, MP4, or FLV. Just perfect for creating tutorials, demos, and presentations. Plus, java is not required and there are no limits on recording length. Also, the recordings play back on any device.
