coconutBattery isn't just a tool which shows you only the current charge of your battery – it also shows you the current maximum capacity of it in relation to the original capacity your battery had as it left the factory.
What we really want students to do is, “Tell us, what’s it really like to live where you live”.
You can use any of a wide variety of tools to create the story, from Microsoft Photostory to iMovie to Voicethread to anything else you can think of.
The requirements are fairly much the same:
- It must involve students from 10 – 13 years old.
- Your class/school/group must be able to publish six stories.
- The stories must be in English or have subtitles in English.
- Stories must be published and “watchable” by March 31, 2009.
I would also appreciate it if you would consider spreading the word. The official tag for this year’s project is liferoundhere09.
After reading through Jen’s post on lecture capture from a staff perspective, I’ve been hit with it from a student perspective. There is a class that is required for my doctoral program and it is only taught once every two years. It’s coming in Spring.
It’s at 1:30 pm. I’m at work until 2:45pm. I’d get to class at 3:15pm and it ends at 4:15pm. Needless to say, I’d miss nearly two hours of lecture which I simply cannot afford to do.
Please don’t rag on lecture, this is not what this is about. It’s not up to us to decide how she wants to teach. The professor is a wonderful lady but is a bit older and she does things a certain way. Truth is, I like her classes, and I enjoy the lecture.
I’d like to capture video of the lecture but am not sure how to do it without it being a huge pain in the neck.
If the class were shorter I’d just give my Flip camera to someone, but it only holds an hour of footage.
If I’ll get there at 3:15, that’s an hour and 45 minutes. The other solution is a second Flip? I suppose that’s possible.
I have a few friends in the class so I could easily get them to set up cameras for me.
Anything better? Something simpler than two cameras?
