Google Glass for small business? Ideas include point-of-view videos through the eyes of an artist or craftperson, streaming real estate home tours for remote clients, and a quick and easy way to capture and post customer testimonials.
How would you use google glass to help promote small businesses?
I’ve added a new place to share all the google glass videos we’ll be producing in the coming months. Follow google-glass-videos.tumblr.com if you want to see how things progress!
We’re back from google. It feels almost like a dream, except we have some cyborg-like technology to show for it!
New Idea: Small business POV videos - where the artist or craftsperson wears glass and demonstrates their unique talent.
The last pic is one we took to submit to IT Crowd’s call for photos.
As the lead videographer and documentarian on the Sylvan EcoHouse project, my role is anything but static. The architect, Robert Mechielsen of Studio RMA, specializes in Carbon-Neutral Design & Construction Technology. In this video he takes us through one of the early renderings of the house (built in Google Sketchup). When we didn’t see an clear way to export videos from SketchUp, I used Screenflow to capture my screen and record the Architect taking us on this little tour.

Planning your next video or wanting to document someone’s life stories? Graphic organization tools are great. I’m a little surprised they didn’t mention Vue.
A great collection of ideas and resources. Here are a handful (click through for the rest):
What Are The Best Graphic Organization Tools?
There are various ways you can go about creating concept maps, webs, and mind maps.
There are some great software programs you can buy or download. For example, check out Inspiration, Edraw or Creately. These programs allow your students to create their own visuals and explore technology.
Otherwise, you can download pre-formatted templates. For example, here are some graphic organizer templates that are specifically designed to help facilitate the writing process.

Filmmakers of Tumblr: Call for Submissions
Tumblr and New York’s PBS station THIRTEEN have partnered to showcase on TV the work of Tumblr’s filmmakers, both aspiring and established.
THIRTEEN’s ‘Reel 13’ movie night airs a short film, voted online favorite of the week and broadcast to public TV’s largest market. For the month of May, ‘Reel 13’ will source the works of Tumblr’s creative community: All you have to do is enter your short film via the ‘Reel 13’ contest website between now and March 31. Be sure to include your Tumblr URL for consideration for the 12 May finalists for ‘Reel 13 Tumblr Month.’
Three Tumblr user films will be selected each week and put to an online vote, with four winners to air on THIRTEEN.
You can submit a film for consideration any time and still win down the line (‘Reel 13’ is an ongoing initiative of local public TV), but prizes during ‘Reel 13 Tumblr Month’ include $600.00 and a feature on Tumblr Storyboard.
Follow along with ThirteenNY on Tumblr and tag #reel13 to watch and vote on Tumblr Month short film finalists.
Putting my videography expertise to good use, over the next several months, I will be documenting the building of the Sylvan EcoHouse in Vancouver, Washington. You may have heard of SIPs (structural insulated Panels); well this house will be constructed with SCIPs (Structural Concrete Insulated Panels). More updates to come…
