Thanks again for attending tonight’s Prezi session. With the craziness of the snow day yesterday, I received a number of emails from staff who wanted to attend but couldn’t due to schedule changes. Thanks so much for the heads up. I create the video content to try and meet the needs of staff members with conflicts. Please let me know if you weren’t able to attend a particular session and find them beneficial.
First, I want to thank everyone who attended this evening. I really had a great time presenting. Nearpod is a wonderful tool.
A great question came up about premade Nearpod interactive presentations. You can “clone” them and then “edit” them to make personal changes. I made a short video and put it in the Nearpod videos folder. It’s called “Nearpod follow up on cloning and editing premade”.
At a recent Middle School meeting, there were some great questions about Twitter. A number of teachers requested a beginner’s guide. I hope this helps. Please email me with any questions.
The conference has been amazing. I have a ton of content that I am organizing to try and share in a way that makes sense. Basically, I want to post things in groupings based on if they are useful for the whole staff or just particular age groupings. I am putting together a newsletter for tomorrow night. I hope everyone has been enjoying the snow days!
BTW: I have been doing some selected retweeting from the conference on my school Twitter account. If you want access to those, you can click on the Twitter link at the upper right hand corner of my page.
Also, if you want to create a Twitter account for yourself, you don’t need to post if you don’t feel comfortable. You can just follow the people or organizations that you would like to. I am planning to put together a short video describing how to do this when I return. There were a number of Middle School teachers that were interested.
As always, feel free to contact me if I can help.
