Khan – Wow! Wow! Wow!

Ok, so now I have been inspired, along with many, who listened to Salman Kahn this morning! I hope there is a YouTube or TED video of him explaining exactly what he did this morning! The resources, and behind the scenes tools, that his online resource provides are incredible. As he says, this content is ‘green’ it never gets stale. Furthermore, he has tools to see when viewers disengage so he can then improve the recorded lesson! Incredible.
A perfect companion to this is Educational Vodcasting. ISTE conducted a webinar with Jonathan and Aaron several years ago. To get a quick overview, I recommend this, less than 2 minute, Colorado Springs news station video: http://mast.unco.edu/programs/vodcasting/press/videos.php
Another perfect related tool is the free Screen-Cast-O-Matic website. Students can create their own videos easily and get this….no software needs to be loaded on the computer! Yes ‘cloudites’ this is a fabulous easy to use web-based screen/audio capture world!
I cannot wait to get back to share all of this with my colleagues!
