Weekly post #25 - WeVideo, stepping back in time with Google Maps and helpful educators sharing!
WeVideo - use these videos to get started
At International School of Geneva - Campus des Nations we have a WeVideo subscription available to all students. We tend to try and focus the use of WeVideo on the younger students (Years 7 to 9) and Adobe Premiere Pro available (via the school's Adobe Creative Cloud subscription) on years 10 and 11.
These videos from @WTSVT act as a great introduction to WeVideo and show some of the features that make its use with a class effective and efficient →
Google Maps - stepping back in time with Google Street View’s archives
Using Google Maps you can access Google Street View’s imagery archives and see how a place has changed over time.
Work though this process to see for yourself →
- Open Google Maps and go and find London Bridge.
- Drag and drop the yellow ‘Pegman’ onto London Bridge.
- → Left click on the yellow man at the bottom right of the map and, keeping the mouse button held down, drag him across the screen, only letting go when you are on top of London Bridge.
- When Pegman lands, the map changes to show you Street View imagery. 'Turn around' until you are looking at the Shard.
- A dark grey box appears at the top left of the map. Click the tiny clock symbol in the dark grey square.
- Use the slider that appears to go further back in time, then click on the small image above the slider. Street View will then show you historical views. You can change the year by clicking on the slider again. You can also navigate your way around Street View just as you would in a more up-to-date map.
- To exit Street View, click the back (left) arrow in the original dark grey box.
Historic imagery isn’t available for everywhere in Street View.
Earning badges, certificates and accreditations to show your competencies
There are lots of 'edtech' companies out there producing some excellent applications for use in the classroom. The better companies are also focusing on ensuring they have the resources available for educators to learn how to maximise the use of their tools.
BadgEdTech is a great site that summarizes all the badges, certificates and accreditations out there for educators to earn.
Teacher tutorials on YouTube all in one place
You can find an explanation video on YouTube for most things! Hence the term 'University of YouTube' →
A teacher out there in EdTech world (and I am not sure who) has curated a whole spreadsheet of useful explanation videos for Google Workspace apps. Check out the spreadsheet here.
