FINALLY CLOSE CAPTIONING FOR MACS!

This is way too exciting and way too cool and I wish I could take credit for figuring this out.  Yesterday my colleague Kim Randall (DEN Account Manager, Western Region) sent me instructions that she received from Dennis Cowick a DEN Star Educator from San Diego Unified School District. CC Instructions for Macs

I have attached the Word Doc that he created along with screen shots. Now Mac users can download CC files and enhance/change the actual CC text too. Thank you Dennis!

In addition to the CC Word doc, I’ve also created a PowerPoint that walks you through the steps that both PC and Mac users should take when downloading videos and CC files. You’ll also find integration ideas and a neat CC trick that shows you how to change the CC font size, color and even the text itself!  I hope that you can use this deck as a tool to show your peers the power of close captioning and media. Close Captioning For PCs and Macs

Finally, by way of Lori Miller a DEN Star from Montgomery County Public Schools, MD, I’ve attached a Word doc that outlines the steps that you’ll need to take to get CC files to play within a Promethean Flip Chart. Thank you Lori! Promethean and CC files

As always, a huge thank you to you – the DEN Stars.  You are not only educating your students but we techies too – keep on sharing your fantastic creativity!

    Nice work, Dennis (and Kim and Matt)! Dennis’ other claim to fame is winning last year’s $250,000 Best Buy grant with the purpose of documenting the unsung heroes in their community. I had the privilege of spending a day with Dennis and his district’s teachers. We did a quick version of “Lights, Camera, Education!” before turning our sights on interviewing. You can see what those teachers’ students accomplished in the course of the year at http://navicast.edtech.sandi.net/mov.php?mid=&aid=623&cat=00026&fbr=&br=. And watch for more on them in my digital storytelling blog and the June 10th webinar.
