Cool Tools presentation on the Android OS system
This resource has not yet been reviewed.
I really liked this presentation. The music was very well incorporated. At first I thought that it was background music from the cnet video, but then it continued seamlessly into the demo. Nice choice. The graphics were interesting. I would have liked to learn a little more about how android use could be applied to the classroom, though. Also, I would watch pauses. There are a couple of places during the cnet video where the video is playing but there is no narration.
I thought it was really well put together and flowed nicely. I also liked that you were able to visibly show how to navigate it. I think it would have been nice if you had already had a specific educational app already open so you could show how the android could be used in education. I would also say to watch the volume of background music just because at some points it was louder than the narration. Great job though!
Great job, i really enjoyed the incorporation of screen casting into the video. Also using statistics to emphasis your point about the prominence of technology in our society. That being said, i would've liked to see a little more in class application.
Things I liked:
-I liked your use of photoshop in illustrating the 4/5 teenagers using mobile devices part.
-Your video was entertaining and gripping, i didn't want to look away from the screen.
-While there was a lot of great content, I think you could have gone a little more in-depth into how teachers could apply the technology to their class.
-that's all I can think of! Good video :)
Your video was definitely engaging to watch and convincing that there are possibilities of using android educationally. But I would have liked to see an actual practical use for android in the classroom. I would also like to have known how to make sure cell phones wouldn't become a distraction in the classroom. I liked your use of photoshop in the statistic you shared, and your screen share on how to look for educational apps.
The video was put together really well. The background music was a good add on, because it wasn't distracting. I think both the android and iphone markets can add a lot of useful information to education. I look forward to advancing technology into the classroom.
I enjoyed the video, I like that you took the viewer step by step showing how to find apps. I think that if you were to suggest ways that teachers could integrate cell phone usage into the classroom you'd have it all wrapped up!
Good job, I think you guys hit several highlights of why the Android is useful in the classroom. The one aspect that you guys mentioned that was most impressive to me was the ability to share files or information by putting two phones against each other. The biggest issues I had was that the music was distracting and you could have done more to sell me on the apps available.
I really liked the graphics in your video. The beginning and end were engaging, and I think the background music added to the pulse of your presentation. Like the other posts, I can see a problem with accessibility for people without smart phones, but I think the video was very informative if you had access to that resource.
Such a great mix of video and commentary. Awesome graphics as well. Would have been nice if there was a section that talked directly about how it the android could help students academically. Also, how the android can aid the instructor in trying to teach a course. But, again great video.
Great video! I like how you showed the educational apps that are available on the android market. I also like the statistic you gave about students with phones. My question is could you make it so that even those students who prefer the apple iPhone could still be able to access the same, I know some apps vary. Also, what about students who do not have smartphones?
This video was very professional in its presentation. The editing was great, and the use of music made me more engaged as I was watching. However, your voice was kind of low at some points and it was hard to tell what you were saying because your voice and the music seemed like they were at the same volume. I would have also liked to have seen a demo of a specific app and it's application to a classroom, and possibly how Android compares to other smartphones in an educational setting.
I liked the step by step guide on how to find educational apps for an android device and examples of cool features the phones themselves have. Some things to add could an example of an educational app and how it works and a compare/contrast of and android to an iphone/ipad.
I enjoyed the video, the quality was superb with the right mixture of sound effects and graphic aids. However, after watching the video, I felt like it could have worked harder to sell an educator on how android apps can enhance learning in the classroom. Also, I think the video can improve by giving a more in depth example of an app and how it can be applied to the classroom.
This is a really good video! I liked that it was interactive. You took your viewers on ta journey in exploring the android market. However, what are some ways that teachers can use phones in the classroom that will not cause a distraction? Overall, good video!
