“Flipping Lectures the Quick and Easy Way with Powerpoint Narrations”
Suzanne Amador Kane, Associate Professor of Physics at Haverford College
Powerpoint has a little-known feature that allows one to record timed presentation including narration and a moving laser-pointer icon. The only thing you need to do this is a regular computer and Powerpoint itself–no table and no other software or hardware! Recording the narrative is easy since you can redo it slide by slide if you need to correct anything. You can get good audio by simply using the microphone built into your computer.

“Use of Google Docs and Videoconferencing in Japanese Language Classes”
Tetsuya Sato, Senior Lecturer and Director of the Japanese Language Program at Haverford College
In Japanese language classes, Google Docs are used to provide students with feedback on their compositions, such as group projects and individual writing assignments, and to facilitate collaborative work among students on editing scripts and creating the glossary for primary source materials in the target language.
Use of videoconferencing with a high school in Japan for tandem-language learning will be also discussed in this presentation.
“Where’s Toto? Or, How to Use Video Editing Software to Analyze Film”
John Muse, Visiting Assistant Professor of Independent College Programs at Haverford College
In this presentation John Muse will share a few simple workshops that would help anyone teaching with film.
“Using Twine to Tell an Interactive Story”
Charles Woodard, Digital Media Specialist, IITS at Haverford College
Twine is a new and fascinating program that allows students to write stories with various levels of interactivity through the use of an easy to understand programing language. Twine has the potential to bring together both art and sciences into one space to create a nicely blended project.
In this presentation, Charles Woodard will demonstrate how Twine could benefit you and your classroom, be it for a computer science or writing project.
