Twitter- Help! Manage new followers….

Here is an excellent solution by @betchaboy Chris who was most kind to share this with the community on the web. Twitter can become a major source for distraction, especially if you get a lot of new followers and getting notificatons in your email. If you want to decide whether to follow a person you need to open their profile in twitter, read through the tweets to decide whether this might be of some relevance or interest to you and then decide. Chris has found a great tool that saves time and keeps your follower notifications organized. But see yourself – he even made a great video to explain how to do this and how it works. Thanks, Chris!

Voicethread- makes students’ comments easy

Another perfect description in           on VOICETHREAD, a Web 2.0 tool that  makes  interaction and collaboration for students easy and fun:

Last week I was asking about which tools LOOK cool but you haven’t really had time to play with them or you don’t really know what they’re all about. Well, folks. By recommendation, I’m here with another “why you should use this in your classroom” post with a GREAT tool you should absolutely make time to play with and use.

It is worth reading Elizabeth’s post as she also visualized the tool in screenshots and points out creative ways of how to use Voicethread in class. Voicethread comes with an embed code and the usual share options and you can browse public Voicethreads or use the search window for specific topics. Here is an example of how to use Voicethread in education:

Capture screenshots and make videos – free and easy with JING

I have been using Jing for a year now, a very easy-to-use tool for making quick explanations which you can either save on your computer or online and then embed in your applications. Here comes a detailed description how you can use this tool not only for teaching but also for learning by having students use it to create their own videos. No special skills are needed for that and Jing is always quietly sitting on the edge of my screen to be helpful when I need it. Great tool!

How to Link to a Certain Time in a YouTube Video

from wikiHow – The How to Manual That You Can Edit

This article will show you how to link to a specific point in any YouTube video by adding an extension to the URL. That way, next time you post a link to Facebook or email your friend that funny video, it’ll start right where you want it to.

Steps

  1. Go to the video you are linking to and pause it at the point you want it to start when you link to it. Hover the cursor over the round time marker on the red bar at the bottom of the video. The time should appear above it.
  2. Add #t=[number minutes]m[number seconds]s to the end of the URL in the browser bar, ensuring it follows directly after the video code. If it says “&feature=related” or “&feature=popular” right after the code, just erase that.
  3. Your URL should now look like this: youtube.com/watch?v=a1b2c3d4#t=1m15s (This example would link to 1 minute and 15 seconds.)
  4. Copy and paste the URL so the people who click on it will start watching it right at that time!

Video

A visual aid for the above information.

Tips

  • You can also link to a time in the comments of a video. You may type the time in any of three ways; using 3 minutes and 14 seconds as an example, you could type 3:14, 3m14s, or 3 minutes 14 seconds. This will link to the chosen time after posting your comment.
