I am currently using Slideshare to share my teaching materials online. It is a great way of sharing so other educators around the world can also use the materials in their classroom. What goes around comes around!! So even you can use teaching materials uploaded by others in your classroom too!!!
Animoto is a great webtool to create animated videos. Look at how I used Animoto to create a video on the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar. You can also use Animoto to capture memories in the classroom during language learning activities. You can even get pupils to compile pictures and write reviews of the pictures through Animoto.
You can use Blendspace to create interactive lesson and interesting presentation. Blendspace is also a great way of organising your teaching and learning for each topic and if you are language, you can organise or sequence it to the language skills.
Check out my lessons on Blendspace. I have given the link below.
Youtube is a great way for teachers to share their presentations and videos with pupils. When you put your materials on Youtube, other teachers can also use it in their classroom.
When you share your videos on Youtube, it is keepsake so you do not have to search for everywhere next time you plan to use it with your pupils.
Lets watch my Youtube presentation on Fresh Fruits for Year 3 pupils.
Let’s use Powtoon to make our presentation more interesting and lively. Students will be interested to look at the interesting design, the avatars and also the background music.
Teachers can also get students to come up with their own videos and present the videos as a form of group task so in a way it will also enhance collaborative learning among them.
You can watch the presentation I have created using Powtoon. I used it to teach about the concept of prepositions.
