Great Way to Create Choose Your Own Adventure Videos

Free Technology For Teachers has a great post on how to create Choose Your Own Adventure Videos on Youtube. Looks like a fun way to engage students.

Create Choose Your Own Adventure Videos: "Earlier this week I was one of the instructors at the Ed Tech Teacher Teaching History With Technology workshop. Through one of the other instructors, Greg Kulowiec, I learned how to make videos that you upload to YouTube interactive. By using the spotlight annotation tool in the YouTube video editor you can insert into your videos a hyperlink to other videos or websites. By inserting multiple links into your videos you can create 'choose your own adventure' series of videos. Click here to see one of the videos that Greg's students created using the spotlight annotation tool."

Welcome to the Replacement!

Well, now that it's summer, and I'm no longer officially the 21st Century Technology TOSA for St. Louis Park Public Schools as I begin my adventure down to Nashville with my lovely wife, I figured it was time to restart these blogs.  So, since I'm no longer an employee for SLP, my 21st Century Technology Blog needed a new home.  And while I was at it, I thought it was time to restart and expand on my Culturally Relevant Education blog as well.  So welcome to the replacement!  And since it's a replacement (and I'm leaving Minneapolis) here's a classic Replacements song.  :)
