The challenge continues with the easiest challenge to date, Challenge #8. Simply check out the wonderful video resource, TeacherTube, find a video you could use in your class, and share the link to it in a comment. That’s it!
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!
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!
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!
Today’s new 12 Second Tech Challenge is now available for viewing. You can view it below or at this link. Remember to leave a comment here when you’ve completed the challenge. Oh, and why not include a link to a video you found during the challenge? Thanks, and good luck!
