Round 2 - Thing 4

Thing 4 was iPadio, which is a phlogging tool (telephone blogging). It basically allows people to call a number, leave a message, and then the message is translated to a blog. I thought this would be really useful for my biology class. My students often have major issues pronouncing some of the complex vocabulary words, and if I could have recordings of me correctly saying the words, it would help the students a ton.

Master Class Project 3

My third and final project was with Animoto. Again, I used my Zoology class as the guinea pigs! The goal was for them to create a "Most Wanted" video about an invasive species. Their animoto was limited to 30 seconds (which was nice because it forced them to really focus on the important facts) and had to include pictures and text. The students really enjoyed using Animoto and I would use it again!
