H808 – Using new technology (CA 8.1)
This activity is about promoting technology-related competency. We are asked to use a new technology to produce a podcast. Fortunately, I already created two podcast so far, one for H808 about eportfolio system, and one was required to finish my eTrainer qualification which I did with the adult education centre here in Germany. I used Audacity to produce the podcast, and added sounds from FXhome that distributes sounds under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Licence.
I pondered long about the learning outcomes:
- learn about using a new piece of software or a new technology
- appreciate some key features as they relate to your own educational practice or context
- identify potential issues for other users.
and wondered which issues I am going to discuss and finally ended up with the following subject:
‘Video’s in learning and teaching’
Producing my first video/movie with Xtranormal was such a great experience, and I just recently introduced this Web 2.0 tool to my students, who liked it too, thus I thought it might fulfil the course objectives.
Here we go. There is also a Transcript CA8.1 that you can download, in case you do not understand me 😉
