BISD 12 Second Tech Challenge #7

12 Second Tech Challenge #7 involves one of my favorite tools. Twitter has allowed me to connect with other educators like no other site I have used. I have learned of new and valuable tools, engaged in thought-provoking discussions, had questions answered, shared my own knowledge, and gotten to know folks around the world via Twitter. Still, I realize that some might not understand the appeal, so I am challenging you to at least give it a cursory trial run. Go to the site, join, then follow 3 other users (I’m “rrodgers”, if you wish to follow me!). You can find a great list of other educators using Twitter as well as useful tutorials at the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies’ Edutwitter page. When you’re finished, be sure to list your Twitter name here–you might pick up some new followers! As usual, you can view the video below, or you can see it at this link.

BISD 12 Second Tech Challenge #6

Today’s challenge is to create a quiz using the fun and powerful site, MyStudiyo.com. This site allows users with free accounts to create interactive, multimedia quizzes. Embed images and video, set time limits, and choose from a good selection of quiz templates. Quizzes are in just two forms, multiple choice and survey-type, but it is still a very useful and easy-to-learn tool. Quizzes can be shared via link, email, or through several social networks and blog sites. To see the site in action, check out the sample quiz I created in about 5 minutes below. (Note: The video at the beginning is funny, but not essential to the quiz.)

As always, once you have completed the challenge, please reply here and leave us a link to your quiz, so that other teachers and I can see your work. Again, thanks for your participation!

BISD 12 Second Tech Challenge #5!

Today’s challenge focuses on a very useful tool called Sketchcast. I wrote about Sketchcast in the previous post. This is a tool that appeared to be lost to us, but it is back now, and I’d encourage you to try it out. When you do, post a link in the comments to your drawing. I think you’ll really enjoy this!

BISD 12 Second Tech Challenge #4!

Ready for a new challenge? Today’s involves the videoconferencing and online telephone (VOIP) tool Skype. As usual, you can view the video below or at this link. Be sure to leave a comment when you’re done. If you’d like, leave your username, too, and other BISD teachers can easily find you and add you as a Skype contact.

So far, 18 teachers and administrators have participated–a great start! Today’s challenge focused on podcasts. Specifically, it focuses on the iTunes tool and its vast library of free, educational podcasts. When you complete the Challenge, be sure to leave a comment here or on the video site and tell everyone what podcast(s) you subscribed to. If you can’t view the video below, click on this link. Thanks, and have fun!

Oh, one more thing. If you missed out on either of the first two 12 Second Challenges, please don’t hesitate to go back and catch up. There is no due date, other than for the prize drawings, which will occur late in the spring, so feel free to join in!
