Too Cool for School Linky Party

I am joining the fun and linking up with Belinda from I Love to Teach to share and learn about cool tips and tricks that teachers are using in their classroom. This year I discovered the Flip Video Camera. I know, I know…I must have been hiding under a rock right??? This camera is amazing and I used it for everything. It was so easy to capture all of those cute and crazy personalities and learning of all of my students.  Another amazing discovery…Smilebox.  I mean I love PowerPoint and everything but let’s be honest…it takes a crazy amount of time to create a video/picture PowerPoint for students. Smilebox is super, super simple and is so stinkin’ cute! Seriously, if you have not tried Smilebox, it is a MUST!

  3. Hi Hope!! How do you like your flip camera? Does it work with a Mac? I have been thinking about purchasing one but still am not sure if it is the right one for me. Thanks!
