A group where educators can learn and identify which Educational Technology tools are appropriate for them. I'm hoping to simplify this process for educators and am open to any feedback (organization, specific sites, beta vs ready, etc etc.)

Hi Lorraine,
I have been following Guy Kawasaki's 10/20/30 PowerPoint rule for as long as I can remember. I highly recommend Sliderocket (www.sliderocket.com) as an alternative to PowerPoint. While virtually the same concept, it is a web based application that makes beautiful slide presentations and it is so easy. Not only that, it lends itself to doing what a PowerPoint presentation should do - augment, not outline, the presentation. The ability to embed video, photos, and personal assets (photos, etc) is all a part of it. Every time I use it, 10 more people seem to start using it too! Good luck to you!

Dear edtech friends,

I wanted to let you know that I am participating in a Microgrant program sponsored by PCI Education and an online community, called WeAreTeachers.

My project will help connect students to the world using technology.

The 10 recipients of this grant receive $200 to aide their work with special education students, as well as a flip video camera. Recipients are selected through an online voting process. SO -- If you have a moment, I'd really appreciate you going online and voting for my project. It would really mean a lot to me to have your vote and support! Just go to http://www.weareteachers.com/web/602148/1 and follow the directions there.

Thanks, Karla Duff

I like the wiki you have started for blogging, we can use it however you think is best.
Comment by Dodie Ainslie on November 6, 2009 at 8:48am
I had started a wiki to compare blogging platforms for use with students.
http://djainslietech.wikispaces.com/Blogging+Platforms
I don't mind if we put it in Technology Faceoff... but
I would like to have a discussion on blogging platforms that work well for school settings.
I agree- we can start with one topic and look at it before going on...
thanks
Dodie

I love the mission you stated, "Together we can weed out the bad and focus on the good!!"
Comment by David Kapuler on October 20, 2009 at 1:25pm
Lets get started!! Hopefully, this will be an evolving group where we can help/learn from each other. Please indicate any resources/sites you'd like to see reviewed. Also, if there are any categories/subjects you'd like to focus on please post away.

W/ the evolution of the web and the way Cloud Computing has taken over we can find resources (free) that can meet any educators need. Together we can weed out the bad and focus on the good!!

How to Recognize the "Fluff" and Tips to Avoid It

An attractive piece of writing speaks for itself. It is clear, competent and disseminates only the necessary information. But is this always the case with all writers? The answer is apparent. A good number of writers are victims of writing content full of fluff. Fluff boarders on words that are meaningless to content being written. When fluff is evident in writing, it becomes difficult to understand the message, read…See More

What am I going to work on this year.

I've got a lot of these skills covered, but certainly not all of them. I'm assuming we all could improve our skills. This post resonated with me, so I made it pretty to post it near my desk. When I glance at it, it reminds me of what I am working towards. For all the resources, go back to the original post in The Educational Technology and Mobile Learning website.…See More
