NASA Ames PSTI (Pre-Service Teacher Institute)
Up later than I meant to last night. Just not enough hours in the day.
In my session this morning I introduced the Jing capture tool. A few students could not get from the tutorial to the program. This bugs me. Especially when I don't know why it works on one computer and not the next. Most likely its the operating system , but my knowledge of this part of TECH in GREEK TO ME.
NASA AMES PSTI 2010 DAY 5.1 Short Sample FLIP Video made this morning as a demo.
Yesterdays video now available on Day 4 (previous) Blog entry.
I demonstrated how to create and quick edit, create, and publish to YouTube a Flip Video.
I shared Jeopardy power points. Students opted to learn about MOVIE MAKER and not Excel formula creation (duh, like this really needed a vote, I mean do you want to go fly in an airplane or learn how to bleed the airplanes brake fluid lines*). Kendia Herrington did the presentation (sorry, I just dropped that on you at the last minute). I am so glad she jumped at the opportunity, she did a FANTASTIC JOB!
I left at this point (10ish) and headed for home and to the Star Wars In-Concert at the Save Mart Center.
Star Wars In-Concert was really nice.
The photo is (blurry sorry) Composer John Williams original hand written sheet music for STAR WARS. It was like I was looking at the Constitution or something. This is in tribute to my colleague, a principal, a music teacher, and all around amazing person and fellow instructor: Felicia Bessent
