One way to record your flipped classroom lecture using basic tools you probably already have in your school. This video was created by Dr. Lodge McCammon, project director of the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation. 


The FIZZ project was developed at the Friday Institute at NC State University from 2010-2013. The project has come to an end at the Friday Institute, and their site went offline on February 1, 2014.

Apps for your tablets and web browser

(From Richard Byrnes' blog Freetech4Teachers.com)

Whiteboard apps on tablets and in your web browser can be great for diagraming and explaining concepts. Here are seven good options for creating diagrams and other drawings on your iPad, on your Android tablet, or in your web browser.

Aww App is a super simple browser-based application for creating drawings. To get started just go toAwwApp.com and click on "start drawing."  To invite people to collaborate on your drawing just send them the link assigned to your drawing board and they can join in the drawing fun. If you would like to use Aww App on your classroom or school website and you have familiarity with editing the code of your site, you can install Aww App for free.



Draw It Live is a nice little website that offers a free space for you to instantly create a collaborative whiteboard to use with anyone you like. To use Draw It Live just go to the site, click the "collaborative whiteboard" link, enter any nickname you want, then start drawing. You can invite people to draw with you by sending them the url assigned to your whiteboard. Draw It Live provides a chat box that you can use to talk to your collaborators about what each of you is doing on the screen.

FlockDraw is a simple service that allows people to quickly and easily collaborate on the creation of a drawing. To useFlockDraw simply visit the site, click the "start drawing" button, and start drawing. To invite other people to draw with you, just send them the url assigned to your drawing board. What's really neat is that anyone who visits the url after the drawing has started will see all of the drawing motions they missed unfold in front of them. You can embed your FlockDraw drawings into a website.

SyncSpace is a whiteboard app available for iPads and Android tablets. You can get the SyncSpace app for iPad here and the Android app hereSyncSpace can be used to create drawings and documents on your tablet. You can create using free-hand drawing tools, using typing tools, or a combination of the two tool sets. Your drawings and documents can be sent to and synced with other users so that they can comment and edit your drawings and documents.



Educreations is a new iPad app that turns your iPad into a whiteboard. You can use the app to illustrate concepts and narrate what you're doing on the screen. You can draw images from scratch on the Educreations iPad app or you can upload images and draw on them. Your completed lesson can be shared directly to others or made public on the Educreations website. 



Knowmia is a website and an iPad app for creating, sharing, and viewing video lessons. The website portion of Knowmia is a collection of videos made by teachers for students. There are roughly 7,000 videos in the Knowmia collection right now. Many of the videos are pulled from YouTube while others are hosted on Knowmia. The videos are arranged by subject and topic. Registered teachers can upload and tag their own videos. The Knowmia iPad app is an app for creating your own whiteboard videos. You can draw free-hand on the whiteboard screen or insert pre-made shapes. You can also use pictures and video clips in your video lesson.

ShowMe is a free iPad app for creating whiteboard videos. You can draw and talk at the same time while being recorded. Your videos can be shared and uploaded to YouTube through the app. There is a public gallery of lessons that you can browse and contribute to. Click here to download the app from iTunes.
