Tweet with a Purpose Sometimes I sits and thinks, sometimes I just sits
Twitter is a great tool for educators. If you have not looked at #oklaed or #principallife you are missing a very interesting view of the state of education and connections with people making an impact.
Following our intrepid conference goers yesterday on my TweetDeck Sequoyah Group and hashtag feed was great fun. Then checking up on the #EPSCohort15 from last nights class was stimulating, hearing the wonderment of IF and Evernote two technologies that need to be in everyone's toolbox.
Google is constantly evolving and growing. One of the great features of the Google system is the training they provide to teachers. They have set up a step by step self directed learning program for educators. As we move into the digital age I can imagine certificates like this will carry a lot of weight.
I found a good post by Tony Vincent on iPads and Apple TV. In the future we should expect more Apple TV devices in the building. We have six in rooms and one for checkout with the iPad cart. It is a nifty tool but can be difficult to integrate into the curriculum even when using technology infused lessons.
This four week session looks like it will take the teacher through all the necessary step to create a lesson using digital media. I hope some folks with interest in transforming their teaching will take and interest and participate in this course. I think it will be a good introduction to what is also possible with online learning and professional development experiences.
