Google Teacher Academy Video

Having used and blogged about using Google tools in the classroom, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to attend the Google Teachers Academy (GTA) in Sydney. It’s the first time that it is being held outside the US and only 50 places are available Australia/NZ and Asia wide. So its going to be tough. One of the application requirements is to compose a 1 minute video about motivation and learning. Having just invested in a Android Phone I thought it would be a good idea to record all audio and video on it. The students were all actually using the tools that they mention. It was the last week of school and I had given them some free time to use a creative tool of their choice.

Here it is.

  1. Hi Andrew,

    What a fantastic video. You can clearly see that you integrate ICT seamlessly into your classroom.

    That is great quality from your Andriod camera. I think I need to use mine more often!

    Good luck with the application.

  2. Thanks Mel,

    I am loving the versatility of my HTC Desire HD. The Camera is awesome and FROYO (Android 2.2) is comparable if not better than iOS. However, the recording audio of the phone could be improved. I only found this out after recording all the video and audio but I think that I managed to fix and highlight it enough for the message to get through.

    With only 50 applicants accepted its going to be tough. Hope to see you there.
