July 09, 2012 06:16 AM PDT
The end of term was a busy one for both of us so we've put together two podcasts that we created and thought best to send out together. Before Slide2learn we had the IWB Master conference on in Adelaide. We had a great time presenting our Voices workshop over 4 sessions with our cohort. Greg Gebhart's Keynote session was great as usual and full of up to date information such as The Horizon Report which provided evidence that oral skills are becoming more important than ever....search via voice, siri etc voice commands
Slide2Learn - Lead up - the who when and where In the ClassRoom
Apps We Discussed
VPP coming soon........I wonder when (Volume Purchasing Plan for apps) iOS V6 -features
Part 2 - Post S2L Where were we from at slide to learn? This doesnt include all the presenters. KeyNotes _Steve Cook, Fraser Speirs, Ivo Burum, Sam Gliksman, Tony Vincent, Lisa Johnson Lois Presented Voices, and Jenny's sessions were Get Real Maths, Workflows and iShare
How do you go about organising something like this?
Good question Lois but Google Docs was a great help and Skype considering that all the Slide2Learn team are spread all over Australia.
