3 Ideas from #MACUL11

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the educational technology conference #MACUL11 at Detroit, Michigan.  What a great use of three days!  It was a busy, hectic time with over 4,000 people in attendance, and included such featured speakers as Hall Davidson, Leslie Fisher, Kevin Honeycut, Rushton Hurley and Anne Truger (there were more, but these are the ones I managed to hear speak).  Additionally, there were literally hundreds of other sessions to attend that were offered by educators from all over the state.


I thought it worth taking a few minutes away from playing catchup to share three ideas that teachers might find useful in their classroom.  While there are many more I could share, I am going to stick to that magic number of three items that people take away and remember!

  1. Advanced twitter search: find all kinds of cool resources, websites, quotes, etc.  You don't have to be a twitter user to use it! ~from Leslie Fisher's session "Twitter, Twitter, Twitter, Twitter!"
  2. Free webcam: use the broken video camera stuffed on the shelf in the closet just for the live feed; the zoom makes it ideal for a classroom setting~from Hall Davidson during the Hall Davidson & Leslie Fisher "Classroom Gadget Showdown"
  3. Jaycut.com Free online video editor, easily upload and edit your video on the site; you can also use it as a chromakey.~shared by Kevin Honeycut & Hall Davidson
Three easy to use FREE tools you can use today!
