  • K12 Online is this week

    Many great presentations are happening this week at the K12 online conference. Join in! You'll learn so much.

    Very interesting tool to use for your classroom that sort of turns your ipad into a document camera/ presenter tool. It has already won several awards in the Apple app store. You might want to take a look at this if you're 1:1 ipad as an option to get rid of document cameras or not buy them at all. Very cool

  • This app is Life Noted and merges camera, video, notetaking and more. It was recommended to me as a notetaking/ capturing tool for observation in the classroom by teachers of students, but I think that anyone evaluating another person might benefit from this sort of tool. Capture your notes and the speech about the notes and share it. Very interesting idea. It is free right now.

  • So many great presentations and ideas from the K12 online conference this year. Check out the schedule and join in! The advantage of watching them now is that you can experience and discuss the topics while everyone else is. Conversing about these presentations online and on Twitter makes a difference. Take a moment to leave a message for presenters who do a great job. These videos take a long time to share.

  • If you're using mindmapping and brainstorming in the classroom, this list from Mashable is updated and useful. There are a lot of new tools out (many of them paid but some not.) If your students are writing collaboratively, you should have them brainstorming collaboratively before they ever type the first letter of the paper or website.
