Teach With video is a blog to help teachers integrate digital video projects in the classes they teach. The podcast provides tips for classroom management, unit and lesson design, and various resources to help teachers guide students toward the successful creation of curriculum-based videos.
In Keynote 6.2, when you are making an interactive presentation and you do not want the user to be able to advance to the next slide, you can create a “Links Only” presentation. You would use this when the viewer of your presentation is clicking on objects that link to other slides. A vocabulary review, a quiz, or choose your own adventure slide show can really benefit from this setting. Change this setting by selecting Document, and under Presentation Type click on Normal and then select Links Only. (see below)
Frustrated that Flickr no longer allows you to embed slide shows? Although Flickr no longer gives the option to create slides shows like the one below, you can still use the old code to embed a slide show in your blog or site. Here’s what you do:

2. Find the set ID number.
3. Copy the embed code below & replace the red numbers with the set number you want in your slide show.
I recently created this presentation to help teachers new to Apple’s Keynote learn some of the basic features. The idea of the presentation is that you download it, follow the instructions on each slide, and learn the basic features by completing the task on the slide. When we ran the PD sessions on campus there was some explanation that went along with the activity, and we discussed presentation setup and remotes. But for someone new to Keynote, there is plenty to learn by just downloading the deck and completing the activities.
This past week I was helping students with storyboards in preparation for the movies they will be making to try to inspire others, a la Kid President. I found this video by Jeremy Cathey on film making tips that really hit the spot for these 5th graders. Great tips, and very appropriate for their level.
Below is a quiz to help teach some of the tricks that are used when attempting to scam someone via email. This presentation was created to help to educate our teachers to detect phishing and scams so that they will not fall victim to these misleading and often very sophisticated email messages.
Many communities offer opportunities to have student movies shown on community access TV. Also, in some areas PBS will show student-made public service announcements. You will have to have release forms signed for all people who are in the videos shown on TV.
