Afternoon Mini Sessions

After lunch, I always find it fun to ask attendees to share their knowledge. If you're willing, please plan to do any of the following. You'll have 5 minutes max.

  • Show a website you love, that you think most people here haven't heard of

  • Share a web 2.0 tool you use in your classroom - any Edmodo users? PhotoPeach? MapTales?

  • Want to do an app smackdown? Your top 10 apps in 5 minutes or less?

What's This?

This section is for those of you who like to wander or look ahead.

If you're going to wander, we ask that you accept this challenge: Explore, learn at least enough about these tools to share a 5 minute demonstration toward the end of the day.

Limit yourself to one tool an hour throughout today while you weave in and out of our main session.

Okay? Proceed...
