Using Flip video cameras to extend the classroom

The FLIP video camera is interesting. Small, handheld video camera. A big change from the older VHS camcorder. And, that's where the possibilities begin. This camera could be used to extend the classroom. Video (or any multimedia) can engage a class, and enhance teaching and learning. These cameras could be used to record portfolio pieces, interviews, oral histories. They can be used to document and record learning and create an artifact of learning. Cross-platform (can be used with a Windows and Macintosh).

Can they extend the classroom? I believe they can extend learning and enhance learning opportunities. They have the potential to transform teaching and allow media rich assignments. Intuitive to use, they focus on teaching and learning. Technology is intuitive and easy to use.
