Multimedia and E-learning Teach Meets

As part of my MSc  I attended two Teach Meet* style sessions that were based on using technology in the classroom. During these sessions fellow educators shared ideas and resources, most of which were free. Pasted below is a list of the technologies that were demonstrated. The list has been adapted  from the MSc blog.

*Teach Meets are held regularly across the country and are events where teachers share ides with fellow teachers.

GoAnimate: http://goanimate.com/

Make animations to a script that you write.  Similar to Xtranormal http://www.xtranormal.com/. Can be used as an assessment tool. For example after a numeracy session on mean students could be asked to create an animation explaining how to work out the mean average of a set of data
