    Seesaw is yet another pretty way of spending an hour getting something on a computer that takes two minutes on the back of a fag packet, assuming the pupil smokes.

    SeeSaw Learning Journal had a big update recently.

    - import your Google Classroom instantly into SeeSaw
    - 'Create and Reflect' (record, draw and talk over) This allows you to see 'thinking' through screen recording

    Seesaw is worth getting to know if you have 1:1 Chromebooks.
    Getting pupils 'feedback' through video and audio is so powerful.

    (very easy to share with parents if you wish)

    EdPuzzle allows you to add question stop points in Youtube Videos.

    https://edpuzzle.com/

    They've just launched EdPuzzle Live which allows the teacher to display the video at the front for pupils to answer on Chromebooks.

    Here's a Youtube video that shows how it works.

    Here's a list of EduTwitter accounts worth following.

    https://www.edutwitter.org

    If you use the filter for Edtech, you will get a list of people who are using EdTech to enhance teaching and learning.

    Wakelet has added FlipGrid video integration

    https://wakelet.com/home


    Wakelet is brilliant for curating weblinks into collections to share with pupils.
    They've now added FlipGrid video 'shorts' so that you can take a quick video and add it to the collection.

    Any favourite alternatives to pixlr for light "Phototshop" functions?

    This reads more like an ad for the support company than a proper ‘pros and cons’ case study. What set-up costs were involved? How was it financed? What changes were needed e.g. to WiFi? Cost of ongoing support? What training was needed and how was that organised and financed?

    So many unanswered questions. I’m a fan of Chromebooks, but this isn’t a case study!
