I’m very excited to work with the students and teachers at Southeast Education Academy today and Wednesday on creating video podcasts for Science. All of the links, apps, and notes you’ll need will be accessible from this page.

Video Podcasting for SEA – Training Notes (opens a viewable Google Doc)

Here’s a great example of what you can do with Explain Everything. The project combined a presentation (PowerPoint) that was uploaded into an Explain Everything project via Google Drive. He added some animation and narration in Explain Everything, and then exported the project as a video that he then enhanced in iMovie, adding a soundtrack and sound effects.

23 iPad Alternatives to the Book Report, from ipadders.eu.

A great article that not only gives you 23 great ideas of how you can incorporate Project Based Learning twist with the tried-and-true book report, but it also highlights the iPad apps they use for each project type. Many of these project ideas can be modified to work easily with assessment in other content areas as well.
