#gtauk Youtube in the classroom with +James Sanders

Using the tools within Youtube
- annotations - you can add a pop up annotation that then links to another video within youtube (like branched system)
- way more click through rates on the in-video links than putting them anywhere else.
- learn from amazing fact videos from vsauce - unicorn farts - who wouldn't want to learn :-)

#gtauk +James Sanders on flipping the classroom

start with website, every lesson is on there, all students have twitter, tumblr and twitter accounts. Gives students a portfolio.

James is still teaching - can has posted a lesson for today already.

Socrative - online voting system. Having a go with it - lovely interface, open, don't need to share same wifi network, just need the 'room' network.
