Several people liked the idea that topics covered were generated by us and wanted to continue that format. Andy noted how he had presented Twitter to his Department and then had some follow-up discussions with a colleague. We spoke briefly about experimenting with meetings next year so that the first meeting each month could focus on a new tool or topic and the second on actual “hands-on” trial and maybe even application with a class.
Since we agreed to take a hiatus for the summer, here are links to 2 recent articles of interest:
- From THE Journal: “6 Technologies that Will Change Education” and
- From MindShift Blog: “5 Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) for Educators”
Enjoy and thank you to everyone!
In attendance: Raquelle Brennan, Erika Eich, Judy Gressel, Andy Horne, Keta McCarthy, Linda Straube and Matt Stuczynski.
