ZohoShow + Skype = Very Cool Teaching Strategy

Glenn Moses is a curriculum specialist, high school teacher, and recently promoted to an assistant principal. He has a fascinating description of using an ZohoShow (an internet-based and free type of powerpoint) and Skype to work with a student to improve an upcoming classroom presentation. Beyond student instruction, the collaborative possibilities seem endless. They would include working with colleagues on conference presentations and with participants in research settings.

(By the way, Zoho has a full on-line suite of office products including a word processor, spreadsheet, and notebook. They allow for easy document sharing and editing by individuals or groups of people. It is similar to Google Documents.)

    Thanks for the ups!

    I’m planning on using this for a live conference that’s going on in the Northwest this November. I’ll be here in Vegas and the presenter will be in Seattle (or maybe Portland, November’s a long way away 🙂 ). It’s great that you mentioned this possibility.

    If you put this to use, let me know.

  2. Glenn … Thanks for the note … I’ll watch your blog for more success stories. I am trying to make my colleagues aware of possibilities like this … both for teaching and research. I think your example is fantastic.

    And, my apologies for misspelling your name. I think I’ve corrected it.
