It’s Back-to-School season. Since my own start of school at the end of July – you can read about it in A Call to Action for the First Day of School – I have traveled back and forth to schools all over the place. The map below shows all of my August adventures and if you click on the picture it will open in Google Maps with more info.
With all of the Back-to-School fun, I’ve written a handful of posts which I have not remembered to post here as well as participated in a number of Google Hangouts about a few of my favorite tools. You can view those on the EdTechTeacher Webinars page if you are interested. This afternoon, Sabba Quidwai, Jodie Deinhammer, and I will be talking iTunesU as well.
My classes start next week, but I will try to continue to post updates here. Good luck to all of my teacher friends – and those of you who have kids going back to school. Here’s to Surviving September!
Though July kept me mostly on the East coast with train rides back and forth to Boston as well as a single trip to Baltimore for orientation at Johns Hopkins, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t spend some time writing.
First, I did a remake of a previous post thanks to the help of two excellent educators: Kristen Wideen and Meghan Zigmond. Check it out on Daily Genius.
One of my participants in an EdTechTeacher Summer Workshop actually discovered this other little trick. You can now add Google Drive Videos to VideoNot.es! If you are looking for ways to take notes on videos that you provide to your students, this is a pretty handy trick.
Finally, last week, I went to Baltimore for orientation at Johns Hopkins. The Dean issued quite the Call to Action for us, so it looks like I’ll be busy for the next few years.
August is back to school season, so stay tuned for more…
