Hacking #iste2015: Tammy is terrific and so are her video flipping tips
One of the first people who welcomed me to ESSDACK 15 years ago was Tammy Worcester. Even back then Tammy was a rock star, publishing books and posting powerful tips on her site – Tammy’s Technology Tips for Teachers. And she was incredibly helpful as I settled into the ESSDACK world.
Several years ago, Tammy left the Hutchinson office and moved east. She still works for ESSDACK but we don’t often enough have the pleasure of spending time with her face to face. So, of course, when she’s doing an ISTE session, I want to be there.
Because she’s still a rock star. Bigger even. Because she’s got great stuff to share.
Tammy starts by sharing that there are many ways to do this. But she wants teachers to have at least one simple way to create a video and share it with students. Her version? A Google account for the teacher. That’s it.
Even though they don’t even know who I am, I love Google tools. They’re free and easy to use.
And, of course, Tammy’s rocking it. Her steps are easy to follow and make all sorts of sense. She walked through the process of using Google Spreadsheets to create a quick website that hosts your video links, create a video, upload the video, and post it to your spreadsheet. (My new favorite? Aww – A Web Whiteboard that lets you capture audio, video, and your drawing on a whiteboard.)
Head to her handout to get the full details. Cause it’s all good.
