This month, we bring you new ideas on how to use video throughout your classrooms and schools that will have you asking, “is this true love?”.
Ask and ye shall receive! Our new image editor is here! Simply click on the magic wand icon below an image in your gallery, OR to the right of your image on the viewer page, and start editing! You can add stickers, shapes, frames, and text, apply filters, crop, draw, and more! Try pairing this fantastic new tool with a MediaSpot project and keep your students engaged and learning.
Easily Create Your Teaching e-Portfolio
Want to share your teaching experience, qualifications or success stories with your principal, students, parents, or colleagues? You can easily and quickly create and share your e-portfolio using the new MediaSpot Teacher Portfolio Template. Just launch MediaSpot, select the ePortoflio template, update the text, insert pictures and videos, and share the URL.
Valentine’s Day Door Decorations with QR Codes
Add technology to your Valentine’s Day door decorations this year using QR codes linked to videos of your students! First, have your students record a Valentine’s Day video. This could be them reading a poem that they wrote, saying “I love you” in a foreign language, or just expressing what they admire.
To decorate your door, wrap it in colorful paper and then glue paper hearts to the door for each student. Next, print your students’ pictures/names and their video QR codes and add these print-outs to the hearts. Now, people can scan each students’ QR code and watch their video recording.
Use Your Document Camera to Help an Absent Student
Did you know that you can use a document camera with the MyVRSpot Video Recorder tool to record your classroom lessons? The video recording auto-saves into your MyVRSpot account, which can easily be shared with your students. The next time a student is absent or needs extra help, send them or their parent/guardian your recorded lesson to get them back up to speed.
New! Manage Your Digital Sign Modes from a Mobile Device
If you didn’t hear, last month we released the Android MyVRSpot app and updated the iOS app. One of the new features in the apps is the ability to change your Digital Signage modes from the app! You could say that the mobile app and digital signage are better together…aw! The next time you want to update your sign mode to the Tuesday/Thursday schedule or for a fire drill, try it out with the MyVRSpot app.
New! More MediaSpot Fonts
There are many ways to say “I love you,” and now you can say it better with our newly added MediaSpot fonts. The next time you create your monthly newsletter, update your teaching e-portfolio, or assign your students a book report, you can use fun and fitting fonts for titles, headers or the body text.
