|This has turns into somewhat of a millennium project but I was wasn’t going to let Google Video get me down. Finally last night, as I arrived back home after visit to the Gilford Arms and meeting lots of the new enthusiastic Edinburgh University PGDE Geographers. My computer (which I have not turned off for 48hours due to the up-load) told me that my video was finally available for public viewing.
So above you should see a window linking to Google video and an audio recording set to slides of my SAGT06 presentation 50 ideas in 50 minutes. The screen cast take a bit longer than the original presentation because I go into a little more depth into some of the topics and I have included more examples of student work. I have also been out in the back garden re-enacting some of my science experiments to do with jet streams, tornados and dehydrated snow. If you can’t see Google Video playing in the blog then it might be because your school has blocked it. The direct link to the video is here.
IMPORTANT: Now if you don’t want to watch the whole video on Google Video or if you want to watch a higher quality version I have also up-loaded a copy of the presentation to Veotag. This is a great wee service (free during its beta test) which allows you to put chapters into your video. So if you are just interested in mobile phones you can link directly to this section, or if you just want to find out about assessment you can go straight there. I found out about it via the East Lothian Glow web site. Click here to watch the veotagged version.
FINALLY: If you like what I’m saying here, please blog , email or pass on the link. It would be really good if we could spread the word about 21st Century Geography and to start to engage in the debate about the future of the curriculum and how we can motivate our students to learn.
