    I use unitedstreaming clips, images, and audio as prompts for my students to respond to on my class blog.

    I also love to embed clips onto Inspiration to use as the content input for students to complete the graphic organizer.

    I use the Closed Caption to support my non-native speakers, my Academic Intervention Reading students, my lower readers, my regular ed students, my special ed students, and even my COLLEAGUES!!!

    I never knew about the ability to increase font size. I can’t wait to try that out tomorrow!

    Thanks for the great info!

    I use unitedstreaming videos the most – I can always find a segment that covers just what I need. My 4th graders seem to respond better to that crazy Maths Mansion guy when it comes to math! I loved the presentation and can’t wait to share!

    I use the Writing Prompts to evaluate student writing as benchmark writings a few times during the year to see growth of skills. I put videos into group folders for the students to access and embed into their PPTs.

    I use the videos in my math classroom to introduce a new topic or for review. I have used them in Keynote presentations, as have my students.

    I also use the still pics in presentations. When you put them in iMovie, you can make them appear to be video footage.

    I’m setting up a closed circuit station for my school. I want to use video clips as part of morning announcements, Today in History would be a great segment.

    I love to embed clips from unitedstreaming in my PowerPoint presentations. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a movie clip is worth an infinity of words.

    Thanks Lance for the Power Point. It will be great to share with other teachers. Sorry I couldn’t be at the webinar, but I do appreciate the Power Point so that we on the West Coast can benefit as well.

    You are welcome. For next school year we are looking at hosting the EdTechConnect series at 6:00 or 6:30 pm (est). Hopefully that will enable more West Coasters to attend 🙂

    Sounds like a missed a great webinar! Thanks for the PowerPoint summary.
    Lance, is there an easy way or place to find all the webinars and events that are scheduled? I find myself reading the blogs, noting events I want to attend, not registering right away, and then having to search the prior posts to find out where I originally saw the information. Is there any way for a Blog Calendar to be created or another “Event Blog” simply stating the Event, date, time and other pertinent information?

    Great webinar.. I got bumped halfway through so it was wonderful to be able to download the presentation.

    We use unitedstreaming everywhere.. embedded in a variety of applications, standalones, quizzes, etc. We recently wrote video editing into one of our middle school computer courses. Students access the site with their student code, download clips and edit them within iMovie. They then create a commercial that will be inserted into a webpage promoting their product. The kids love it and it’s great to have access to educationally sound footage and not worry about using cameras, etc.

    We use United Streaming all the time. On of the most favorite is to have them insert it in a powerpoint then have them write a summary about the concept. It is a great way to get them talking and writing about the concept. Now knwoing how to actually embed the video it will be even better. Thanks for the tip.

    Great presentation yesterday Lance! I have already shared all the 24/7 features presented yesterday. I particularly loved the parts on “really embedding video” into powerpoint, editing closed captioning, and adding students to editable movie clips.

    I can’t wait for the launch of UnitedStreaming Plus. What day next week can we expect this? As a STAR DE, what do I need to do in order to access the plus content?

    Here is a tip for using UnitedStreaming in a professional development setting: I use a “Best Practice” video from the Professional Development Center as an Activator for every workshop that I conduct. It really fosters discussion among the teachers involved in a PD session.

    Thanks again for these wonderful sessions!

    On the part about “really embedding video” — does this make it so the powerpoint will show the video no matter what computer it is on, or do we still have to also copy the video file over to the other computer for it to work? I’m trying to find a way to make this work in Blackboard.

    Since I missed the webinar, I spent some time this morning really going over the PowerPoint presentation. The more I try to absorb the content in the presentation, the more I realized I missed. Will this webinar be scheduled for another time at a later date?
    I loved the concept mapping sites. Mindomo and Gliffy are terrific. I’m always looking for quick and powerful ways to share a visual synopsis of what unitedstreaming has to offer with my district. I think a map of the unitedstreaming product is going to be a big hit with teacher who don’t read text, but will look at a visual. (Same with students too!)
    unitedstreaming plus looks great. When can we expect that and how will we access it?

    I use United Streaming videos as part of my Language Arts(Language!) and Math for my RSP classes. Recently we had a code Blue lockdown and it was great to power up a video for my students to watch. I am currently using keynote, but now have Powerpoint also. I learned so much from the webinar. I just wish they were held in the evenings or weekends.
