- Doodle: An online scheduling tool, but I'll stick with Evite for personal, or Google Calendar for organizational scheduling.
- Big Huge Labs: Creative photo tool for creating badges, posters, etc., that can use Flickr or one's own photos.
- Pics4Learning: A copyright-friendly image library for teachers and students.
- Flickr Creative Commons: Freely-available photos, with attribution.
Using Surveys to Find Out What Students Know: Using clickers to conduct student surveys.
Making a Difference in Your District: Barb Fardell
- MMC digital content is coming soon from Florida Virtual High School, purchased in perpetuity for $850,000?
- 24 two semester courses (Algebra I & II, Calculus, Geometry, American Government, American & World History, English I, II, III & IV, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Spanish & Latin, among others).
- Much potential here, will plan to share this information with out curriculum director.
- In the old days when there were competing sessions that I wanted to attend, I would simply slip in to retrieve a handout, then fly off to the other concurrent presentation. Now, thankfully, to concentrate on the chat and keep from taking detailed notes, or to access sessions other than the ones attended, people's presentations are posted to the MAME website for later digestion.
- Thursday night dinner was at the Mackinaw Brewing Company, an excellent Bleu Cheese Burger and an above average pint of Peninsula Pale Ale and a mediocre pint of Beadle's Best Bitter. A delicious Friday lunch, too, with my aunt and uncle at the Bayview Inn.
- The weather was crummy, no other way to describe it: gray, low clouds, only short periods of non-rain. Unfortunately, this was my opportunity to take the opportunity to golf a resort-style course. Went for a run instead, and found the Grand Traverse area hilly.
- Attendance seemed way down, as I looked around the keynote opening speech. Which leads me to my concluding thoughts...
