Proud Mom Moment

I have not mentioned much about my family, but I need to take a moment to say that I am incredibly proud of my two boys.  One is in the Air Force, and the other has one year left of high school.  They both work very hard at what they do and have done extremely well in school, work and in “life”.  Mother’s Day was wonderful just thinking about how proud I am to be their mother!

I wanted to take a moment and state that my younger son is now tutoring math and is available to help in person.   He has 2 students he has been helping, and both are doing much better in their math classes since they started with him!  He is a very patient and insightful tutor.

Just a reminder as well, if you need help with math, but must get help online, I am available through my website www.ondemandcurriculum.com.

I am just so blessed to have 2 amazing young men for sons that I had to share!

 

Using Doceri to Replace Smartpen Pencasts

Since Livescribe took down the Echo community site where I had over 500 pencasts stored, I have completely quit using their product.  Instead, I now use a much better product, which is a free app on my iPad called Doceri.

Doceri allows you to use colors (any color and any size), highlighters, graphics, and the best part is you can edit your writing!

I had created a work-around using my smartpen to place the test below the pencast to write test keys, but that was cumbersome and is no longer possible.

Here is a video where I took a screenshot to answer a student’s question and then wrote over the document using Doceri on my iPad to create an animation/video to answer their question.

 

If you don’t want to add sound, then Doceri automatically creates an animation from your writing.   However, I strongly recommend adding audio.  Once you add audio you can upload the video to YouTube to share with your students.  In the near future I will try to find some time to write a How – To post on using Doceri to write test keys.
