Not trying to sound like a Hollywood film trailer, but, they have been 5 months in the making, we have finally completed all the Innovative Videos we originally started at our 2009 Summer Camp. 10 of our most Innovative Teachers have contributed over 35 instructional videos, that can help you use a wide range of Microsoft applications in your classroom. The latest videos cover applications such as Songsmith, Deep Zoom and Photostory,
We have placed links to all the videos in a community on the Partners in Learning Network. You will need to join the network to access and download these.
The Partners in Learning Network is free to join. Once you have registered with your Windows Live ID. Click on the community tab and join the Innovative video ideas for teachers by teachers community. You will also find another 10 videos listed and a link to this community listed in the ‘New videos added’ article on the home page.
This article has 10 examples from the videos we first produced. For an example of the latest videos click here. This example is by Dave Garland from saltash.net community school. He describes how to use Songsmith in the classroom, and even sings to prove what a great application it is. Songsmith is available as a free download to members of the Partners in Learning Network.
We think these videos provide a comprehensive and valuable resource for the professional development of teachers, even the process of making them has became a professional development exercise in itself. For details of how we made these InnoVIDS, keep a look out for some exciting news later this week, watch this blog for details or if you are at the BETT show this week, come and see us on the Microsoft stand.
