Now, this is not a post about the power of twitter, but we can not skip this glaring point. With in two minutes of my tweet, A guy from Iowa took time to tweet me back several great apps to check out for Chromebooks (or Chrome browser). I think that is awesome---most are listed in the image to the right.
Anyways back to VideoNot.es. I was loving this application. How many times have I watched a youtube, forgotten where the key points were, or what part I wanted to show students, or any number of things like that and I had no way to save that.
VideoNot.es does it all. First, it timestamps your notes. Then when you are done, it auto saves to your google drive and creates a new folder for all VideoNot.es...so they are easy to find. Then you can share your notes within google drive to a classroom, the web, a blog ect....
However, for me the key is this: I will teach this application to my students. Then when they do blogs for my history classes, they can take screen shots of the VideoNot.es screen and publish them right inside their blog. There notes and the youtube side by side. This will allow me to see what they are learning by watching youtubes.
Below are a few images of the whole process. Let me know how it works out for you. Thanks again Devin Schoening, you rock.
VideoNot.es is a free google app that runs on the Chrome browser. On Tuesday, I tweeted out for some good apps while at a PD day for my district. Devin Schoening, @dschoening, from Iowa and I sent back and forth a few messages about what he is using in his school. Within two minutes I had added VideoNot.es to my chrome browser and was taking notes on a youtube about the Greeks.

I just got a new chrome book. I can't wait to try some of those for this week's assignment in Garth's Technology class. Video notes would seem applicable for this assignment. Additionally I have not figured out a good way to do screen shot capturing with my chromebook so can wait to try out "Awesome Screenshot and Capture." For my future special ed students I will check out LucidChart, Desmos Calculator and weVideo for possible uses to support learning.

love the fact that you have the Greeks crucible of civilization for the videonotes blog. One of my favorite documentaries.

If you like that, check out EduCanon. Looks like it could be full of potential.

I like the fact that Videonot.es could appeal to more hands-on learners rather than visual or auditory learners. Even though I'm a very visual learner, I can get bored or disinterested very easily. I feel that taking notes online while watching the video would help students stay engaged. I also like the timestamp feature and the saving feature with Google Drive, so students can go back and review their notes as many times as they need. Are the videos also linked to the notes, so students can read their notes and watch the videos again at the same time?

Note taking is a vital part of learning. This is a great example of how technology supports the note taking process.
