It's only day 2 at TCEA, and so far I have to share some tweets of great resources, some of which I will be exploring more myself for future reference and knowledge I have gathered from the conference. First off, a great layout for a digital scavenger hunt laid out by a great EdTecher from El Paso, Earl Yager: http://efyager.weebly.com/digital-scavenger-hunts.html . Next, if you are thinking about using Twitter, take a look at how you can streamline the tweets of your students using TwitterFontana which displays a stream of hashtags helping you filter classes and participate in writing and summary skills. I will do some more as I get time but be ready to turn on the learning in your classroom!
As I do my finishing touches for my Symbaloo workshop tomorrow, I wanted to write how excited I am about being at TCEA! If you ever have a chance to attend, it is full of innovative ideas and teachers that embrace and promote technology in the classroom. I am looking forward to learning more about publishing ebooks in the morning, then doing my own sharing on Symbaloo. As I learn and become inspired, I will share more from the week's finds with you:)
I work with teachers and students as a Digital Media Specialist for the Pearland ISD Curriculum Department. My goal is to share innovative and useful information for other educators, as well as catalog my personal finds along the way!
