I thought I had worked out all the bugs 3 years ago but guess what. . . I had a different document camera this year (remember I moved to a new classroom) and it hadn't occurred to me that I would need to do anything different. That is until I got ready to record. That's when I realized I didn't know how to make what I was doing with the document camera show up on my laptop. I told you before I am not really a techie person; I just ask a lot of questions.
So, I posted a message on Edmodo and my Area Tech Coordinator informed me that I need to put in a request to have the software for the document camera installed on my laptop. So after a phone call, our Tech Support came out and installed the software. Yea!! I love my Tech support people! (Big smile) So here I sit ready to post my new video. I just need School Tube to be a little bit faster with the video approval process.
How are my third grade students adjusting to technology, iPads, and Edmodo? They are coming along. . . We started using Vocabulary/Spelling City Today and only 1 person asked me for their username and password. All of their usernames and passwords are the same for each of their accounts. That makes it a little easier.We are getting there. If the truth be told, I think the parents are the ones that are having to adjust the most.
