Best of 2013 So Far…VideoNotes

We’re half-way through 2013. Like I’ve done in years past, this week I’ll be featuring some of the best new tech tools of 2013 as well as some of the most popular posts of the year.

VideoNotes is a
neat new tool for taking notes while watching videos. VideoNotes allows
you to load any YouTube video on the left side of your screen and on
the right side of the screen VideoNotes gives you a notepad to type on.
VideoNotes integrates with your Google Drive account. By integrating
with Google Drive VideoNotes allows you to share your notes and
collaborate on your notes just as you can do with a Google Document.

Applications for Education
My first thought when I saw VideoNotes
was that it would be a great tool for students to use to take notes,
ask questions, and answer questions while watching “flipped” instruction
videos. You could assign a video for homework and have your students
ask and or answer questions using VideoNotes. Have students share their
notes with you so that you can see their questions which in turn can
influence how you structure your next lesson plan.
