Lisa; I have really enjoyed getting to know how to use the new applications you have shown us. I am still working on getting a better wetoku than the one I am submitting, but there are a lot of ways that I can see using this in the classroom.

Wetoku - What fund This Could Be!

I definitely agree with some of the comments. The split screen makes this a great tool for students. Last year we had some projects going on that used SKYPE and the picture-in-picture format was good but this could be even better. Great way for students to conduct interviews when one is a historical figure and the other the interviewer. I also think this could be a good way for teachers to share how they are using technology in the classroom with each other. A moderator could ask questions or provide prompts for the teacher.

I created a sample Wetoku in the "live" format just to try it out and as others have done, I did do this more than once! View it from my portfolio page at: http://edutopia-ntbootcamp.wikispaces.com/Portfolio+for+Suzanne+Sallee

Using Wetoku

I enjoyed this and find it really interesting. I was thinking this would be great in high school when kids are learning about resumes and interviews and such. This would be a great practice. In Middle School I have no idea. In elementary school, I have no idea. If someone could share?

No Webcam :(

Guess I'm behind the times...no webcam at home or for students at school. I think my school laptop might have one but I have never used it. Maybe I can sneak it home one day to try it out!

Wetoku! Fun to say, fun to use, although I must admit I probably recorded five different versions before I posted one! I guess speaking without a script on a webcam is not one of my finest skills, practice is important with this tool! I like this tool for the video podcasting service, for the fact it is free with no downloads needed, and because it is so simple to use, oh and of course the collaborative interview feature is beyond wonderful!

Thank you Lisa. It's so easy to learn with you! Thank you for sharing, everything seems easy when you explain things. I'm a teacher working with teenagers and adults and just give one to one classes at home but love to learn and I try to put ideas into practice but little by little. Everything is so new and challenging for me, but must confess I enjoy it.
From Buenos Aires send you a hug and again thank you and thank you for all your help to all teachers.
Debbie
