I am going to try and document how i have used certain tools in the classroom (mainly web 2.0 stuff) and reflect on the impact and usefulness in my teaching.

To start with i have been using www.jaycut.com as an online video creation site. It is really useful to use, as the creation of the video is very simple, and then the students can publish to their jaycut account and get a url for the video, or they can save to their documents.

All they then need to do is to email me the link to the video and then i can mark the video and give them feedback.

The students seem to like this idea, and i used it in maths to summarise the properties of triangles and quadrilaterals. This allowed them to create an individual video and show their knowledge of the key terms associated with the topic.

All in all, it went quite well! What video creation tools have you used, and how did it go?
