I’m a big fan of using online videos in my presentations, but I’ve found that I talk way too much (mostly “um’s”) and have a tendency to run short on time. But when I’ve selected a video to include, I usually allow the whole thing to play, or at least play through a certain point to enhance or back up meaning for something I’m talking about.
In recent days I’ve been hearing about a site called Tube Chop that will allow me to put the url for a video in it, and then select the clip I want to use in my presentations. Here is one I did from this URL, which is a 7 minutes+ video of Will Richardson talking about what the implication of social networking tools might be for pedagogy.
Well obviously I need more practice so I get exactly at the starting and stopping point that I want, but this is perfect for my needs!! Glad I tried it out finally! Wish I could thank those (and there were several) in my PLN who shared the tool. Can’t wait to share this with my teachers at school.
