This is the very first podcast post ISTE and we are doing it up with some tech based aspects of our games. In this particular episode we are discussing the power of video trailers to launch students into new aspects of our game. You don’t need to be the next Steven Spielberg or have the Pixar team behind you to make one of these videos. Just have a listen and learn some great ways to integrate this into your teaching flow.

Final Cut Pro (again, get a mac) – Powerful video editing software
