Thanks for attending tonight’s Prezi session! Videos are posted!

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.

I posted the video content from the Prezi session. I broke them into 10 step by step videos that are labeled by topic. I know many of you have been trying out Prezi since the fall sessions. I hope some of these are useful to you as well based on what you have been trying.
As with any of the sessions, feel free to let me know if you want to meet to use any of what is presented in your classroom. Also, if there is a portion of Prezi that you would like to try that is not covered, let me know.
Videos are located in the “Teacher Resources” section of the district main page, under “PD Session Resources”.

Thanks for attending the Nearpod PD session tonight! Resources are posted!

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”.

I also posted a link to a web site that shows how to take various types of screenshots on different devices and computers.
The content is available if you go to the “teacher resources” section of the main page and then click “PD session resources”. iPad III was the title of this session.
Remember Nearpod works on almost all devices. The link is also below.

OETC Update!

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.
