Pogue Reviews the Flip

by Samuel Sennott

Definitely the link to send your principal, director, or superintendent if you are trying to purchase Flip Video cameras for your classroom next year. David Pogue of the NY Times reviews it in a fun, hilarious way that demonstrates both the phenomenon and the practicality of the Flip Video.

  1. I have a flip ultra that I used to capture snapshots of students during assistive tech evals…and during interventions –that way when the team asks how did he do x or where should we put that switch, not only can I tell them, I can show them, easily. We are in the process of creating video snapshots of our students to prepare for transitions, so the new teachers can “see them in action” before the first day of school!

    Battery life is exceptional, and when it runs out, it’s AA batteries, available anywhere. easy to edit, even on my mac – which people reported to have problems with…if anyone wants more information about how we use it, feel free to email me!

  3. Mark, it will be so cool to hear about the Technocamp this summer. I really like the video art show you demonstrated to me from last year I think it was.
