Walked away with another round of immediately useful resources and ideas from Friday’s workshops:
iPhone: The Ultimate Teaching Assistant – Lanie McGann provided a great overview of iPhone uses and applications via her presentations and iPhone Education PDF. She ended her session by polling the audience for favorite iPhone apps. Haven’t had a chance to checkout all of them, but, for a starter, many parents in the audience love Trace.
Film School for Video Podcasters – Mathew Needleman continues to be my guiding light in resources, strategies, and justification for transforming elementary students into filmmakers. For a glimpse into Mathew’s presentation, teaching style, and multiple talents, checkout his very complete post for this session.
Ten Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do with Video Clips – Loved Hall Davidson‘s fast-paced, hilarious session. Thanks to a little help from Mathew Needleman, I’ve located the link to Hall’s PDF ( but still can’t get the PowerPoint to load).
